You oughta be in pictures...

The bathroom demo and reno is FINALLY complete (and in record time I might add)! I can't tell you how happy I am with it. It took just over a week and it looks so good, the pictures just don't do it justice. I'm so glad that the old bathroom (the one where it looked like the 70s threw up) is gone!

So, without further adieu...The pics are up for all of you and for Josh as well, since he's still away on business and he's checking in on the blog from afar. :)

Our brown bathroom:

The colour on the wall isn't as dark as it shows in this picture, I couldn't get the 'true' colour to come out, but it's a light beige-y brown (called "bluffs" by Benjamin Moore). Unfortunately the picture makes the colour look like it's mustard, but trust me, it's not...

We got the fixture at Home Depot of all places and I'm really happy with it. I'm glad to be rid of the really fugly monstrosity that we had hanging in our bathrooms before.


This is our new floor which is just SO yummy and luxurious.






The wall which is just so...GRAH! To say that I love it would be an absolute understatement.




Looking at the tiles and the tub together really completes the look. Can you believe that the saleslady tried to talk me out of my choice? She told me that the tiles:


a) didn't match

b) wouldn't match the tub

Yeah, ok...

Here's just a simple shot of the new shower...yay!












This is the new floor in our en suite bathroom, it looks just like marble but not nearly as cha-chingy. We painted the walls in this room a light grey called "iced cube silver" (by Benjamin Moore).



New en suite walls (and ceiling).






Rub-a-dub-dub...the completed look.







Ta-da!












We also painted our powder room on the main floor. The previous owners had painted it a (nasty) pink, but I changed it to "decorator's white". It was starting to make me twitch everytime I went in there...

Unfortunately none of the pictures came out in their 'true' colours, but the bathrooms look SO good now.

This subject made me think of the Canadian show: Holmes on Homes.

Glad it all worked out on time.
