Okay, so you saw what it most recently looked like - and what it started out looking like...so what's happened?
Well, we started with a massive demo - we had decided to absorb the closet in our master bedroom (you can see it in the floor plan here) in an attempt to get enough space to have a separate tub and shower (can you imagine?! I know!). That and the fact that our plumbing was in exterior walls meant it all had to come out.
Bye bye ugly vanity with your broken drawers and god awful tiles!
Bye bye toilet that never ever seemed to flush properly!
After taking out the toilet and sink, the hub went to town ripping down the drywall and quickly discovered that it had been put up over the original bathroom walls (plaster and gypsum, of course!). CHECK IT OUT, at one point my house had a classic vintage pink bathroom!
Coming in from the hallway, love the chaos! Check out the pink walls...with the east facing window, I added tinfoil and a window a/c unit thinking it would help keep the Boiling Heat out (it didn't).
As I mentioned before, we had decided to absorb the master bedroom closet - so you can see the demo activities from our new (and temporary) second point of access to the bathroom. You can see that obviously the walls were at one pointed tile lined - though not with ceramic tiles, with plastic ones (?!)
Peeking around the wall from inside the tub (oh la!), you can see that the original sink had faced the toilet (vs the door, where the pre-demo one had been). And that it had a built-in medicine cabinet.
BUT WAIT, it gets better! Check out this shot, you can see the shape of the original light fixtures AND a cubby. A cubby lined with the original, red red red swirly plastic tiles. This discovery made my day, I saved one of course.
I had to include a close-up shot. Check it out, they were a deep red with pink swirls? Must have been an epic bathroom.
And, of course, the door heading back into the hallway.
