Today we make more: comparisons.
I'm going to aim for before and after shots of one room a day for the next... uh, five days I suppose. Looking through all the before pictures, it's apparent that I had absolutely no idea how massive a transformation we were about to orchestrate.
Because I would've taken way more pictures if I had.
We begin today with the bathroom. The first time we saw it, it looked something like this:
The sink was in the living room, I think. Or I might have thrown it outside by then. That board that's missing in the floor was taken out due to water damage, if I recall correctly. Oh and the door was against a wall in the living room. The Ajax kinda cracks me up though. That room needed a lot more than just a good cleaning.
It needed this:
What's new: the window size was cut in half and we replaced it; the wall tile around the bathtub; the tile board on the walls; the faucet and shower head; the toilet (to quote me, shortly after one of our initial tours of the cabin: 'Of course we're getting a new toilet. There is no way my bare ass is touching that thing.'); the sink and vanity; the medicine cabinet; a fresh coat of paint on the door and a new door knob (picture taken before that was put on); and the linoleum (I'll have to get a better picture of that). Oh, and the light fixture. Also not pictured. Bah.
What's old: the bathtub (scrubbed relatively clean) and the shower curtain rod (stolen from the downstairs bathroom of Kat's parent's house).
What's left to do: ceiling trim around the top of the tile board; baseboards around the toilet and sink; a touch up of the bathtub paint; and shelving. The whole place is in desperate need of shelving, actually. I'm going to try to build one or two for the bathroom relatively soon. Oh, we also need a towel rack.
It's a little more presentable now, yes?
