Beach Cottage Coastal Style Bathroom Renovation The Before
Tue 17th, Jan, 2012
G’day Beach Cottage ladies, let’s have a look at our coastal bathroom renovation shall we?
Take a seat my friends, this is not for the faint of heart and it is NOT looking pretty in there, (a lot of these photos are grainy, I used my iPhone in low light because I don’t have a lens that is wide enough to fit the whole room in because of it’s size…thinking about it though, I don’t think you wanna see these pictures crystal clear lol).
This is Day 6 without a bath tub…boy oh boy am I feeling it…I thought I loved my bathtub before, heck I knew I loved it, but now without one I am climbing the walls at about 7pm…after Arsenic Hour is over, people are fed, cottages are hoovered, kitchens are cleaned and laundry is put away, I about hang-on for dear life every day to the thought of that water running, those bubbles bubbling and a fresh stack of white towels waiting for me.
Not at the moment.
Beth, whoever we are calling you is not looking very coastal style or beach decor or nice at all really (I will be doing a poll on this and a naming ceremony, no I do not jest, after this wait there will be a naming ceremony, heck there will be an opening ceremony complete with ribbon).
So this is it…what follows are the pictures from in there at the moment
the reality of my coastal style, nautical, beach cottage bathroom dream is a lotta males around here running around in various guises, with various tools doing their various things
this is the vanity all wrapped up…it has a marble top and drawers…
we put it in the re-cessed section that used to be the toilet (the door will be blocked up)…
it looked good here but we worked out that actually the bath fitted in here much more nicely leaving lots of room for other things that happen in bathrooms…
It looks small in this picture but obviously all the joists, timber and piping will not be there…those are from the old room where the handbasin & toilet were…
I said out loud oooh good, I can get a nice old vintage chair in here too then…both the males involved in this operation looked at me, Mr Beach Cottage made a neck slitting action with his hands…yes he was wearing those boardies with his Bonds on show and his love handles peaking out and still he had the cheek to look at me talking about vintage chairs…
here they were musing
But in the end
I just took pictures of my feet and let them get on with it
OK Beach Cottage lovelies, that’s it from me for now…I am off down the beach for a walk, my stretches and a swim in the sea
I may pop back later if School Holiday time allows to show you the fittings and fixtures I have chosen…if not, see you tomorrow for Good Life Wednesday yeah?
What do you think so far?? …the no walls, mess, wires & plumbing?? looking good yah?
