It was the grossest room

On this day 1 year ago Steve and I were demoing the grossest room in our old house. We were pulling the ceilings with nasty drywall falling on our heads. There were poop smears on the floor. If you dare, you can read  the grossest room yet.

During renovations, we took some rooms and turned them into others. That is what happens when you have 5 separate apartments with 5 kitchens, 5 bathrooms, numerous rooms and alot of grossness.

The previously grossest room is now our Master Bathroom. It, like all of the other rooms in our old house still has things that need to be completed but wow what a difference a year makes.

You enter the Master Bedroom through the Master Bedroom. Straight ahead you see the vanity. I love that it’s freestanding.

If you look to the left, you see the clawfoot tub. The tub was original to the house. I traced the manufacturer back to the early 1900’s so I love the perfectly imperfect tub.

The windows will soon be painted and trim will be installed.

Who knew it would be hard to buy plain cotton white cafe’ curtains? I searched and searched. I wanted curtains to allow privacy without blocking all the light. So off to the fabric store I went. If you can’t  buy them, you make them. They were cute but not cute enough so a couple of weeks after they were installed, I pulled them back off and sewed some trim on the bottom. Perfect. img_1835

The hardware I chose is the 3rd option. Yes I purchased and returned, purchased and returned, purchased and kept. I love them and look at the exposed pipes are just the best.


Turn left and you enter the shower area (yes there is a toilet too) however the shower is my favorite.


You will now see why…….


It’s a shower for two. Sometimes there is two and sometimes I turn both shower heads on and enjoy all by myself. The best part? No shower door to clean!!!!!

As you continue past the party shower, you enter the master closets. The closest have caused quite a stir between this wife and her husband. Why is it so hard to design a closet. It should be simple right? Shelves, rods, done. I don’t think so.

You enter Steve’s closet immediately from the bathroom. He knew what he wanted. We went to Lowes, we bought it, he installed it.

I borrowed half for another 2 months. My clothes and shoes remained everywhere. On the floor, in the bathtub and many other inappropriate places due to the fact that I could not figure out how to make my closet be perfect for me.

Finally I gave up. Just do it. Put up some shelves for my shoes and some rods for my clothes. I don’t care anymore. This past weekend, I got a closet. It’s not what I had visioned in my head. I wanted grandeur whatever that means in a closet however, my wardrobe and shoes off the floor is grand…..GRAND I SAY!!!

You enter my closet from Steve’s closet. The mirror will be hung and there will be baskets attached to the wall to hold scarves and what nots.


To the left there is a shelving unit for shoes and a double rod for shirts, pants and skirts. They are not yet organized but soon. very soon. Color coordinated and matching hangers are in the plan.


To the right is another shelf for shoes. Yes I have many shoes and a single rod for my many dresses. So fun to see everything out of boxes. Joy.


This room that used to be disgusting and super smelly is now clean and beautiful. I am excited to continue the design of this room. Keep watching, MORE to COME!!
