The newly remodeled bathroom

From this:

to this:

It took about 4 months, but I finally got the bathroom completed a few weeks ago, thought I'd share some pics. I am really happy with the end result; it ended up being a shade of blue called 'frosty', not the yellow or green I was initially thinking about. So a much cooler color, but it does look good. Once in a while I'll walk into the bathroom, look at the walls, smile and walk back out, just for the heck of it. We still might accessorize the walls a bit more, but that can wait. And some new towels to go on the newly mounted hardware:

But wait,

What's behind this door? Is it, could it be........

...........more of that ghastly black wallpaper?

How can it be???!!!

I didn't even try and attempt to strip wallpaper from the shower/ commode cubicle. Why would anyone even build a shower and toilet together in a tiny room behind one door? Beats me, but we inherited the house with this flaw. Then the wallpaper was obviously mounted before the cabinets were installed, so it extends into places a ladder could never reach. Unless you perched it on top of the toilet lid. Nu-uh! I value my safety a lot more than that. And this portion doesn't have those little birdies, just oversized flowers. So we will live with it. At least until we hire someone come in to paint over the magenta colored walls in the rest of the house.

Nice work! It looks beautiful. Maybe you can have a second career in interior design...
