And by 'fix'? I mean totally replace.
The whole problem started when I fell through the bathroom floor. (Okay, if I'm being honest? The whole problem started when we bought this house.)
One of the problems was just deciding what to do--it was a real dilemma.
We didn't want to spend a ton of money putting this room together, because of the return on investment per square foot. (When you flip houses, this is what you think about, even if you live in your flip.)
Replacing the floor and toilet were crucial,
and DL found marble on sale.
Are you SERIOUS? MARBLE? Who puts marble floors in a knotty pine, cowboy bar-style bathroom that is decorated in a style that one can describe only as Early Oklahoma Roadhouse?
It turns out that we do. Especially once some of that pine is painted taupe, while the ceiling is given a whitewash treatment.
Colors were chosen based on adjoining rooms. (Okay, let's be honest. The adjoining room has no climate control, so it's cold as heck in there in the winter and hot as Hades in the summer. The adjoining room has not been decorated. The adjoining room is awaiting about $30,000 worth of work, which we will get around to when we either win the lottery or sell 'slightly used' internal organs.) So I used the colors in the living room (because I already had leftover paint on hand) and a painting that I found that was done by the original designer/owner of the house. (Yes, the woman in the painting has one bubbala out. That is the hallmark of the Joe King/Vinciata style. Plus, it has something for gentlemen to look at while they tinkle.)
DL added an electrical outlet, as there was no outlet in the bathroom,
And I painted and stained an old sewing machine cabinet. (The plastic cup isn't there now...it was there while we tested for leaks.)
DL found the sink and faucet online and I found the soap dispenser at the Tar-jhay. The curtain is made of fabric I had laying among the roughly thirty-thousand yards of fabric I now own. (Because as everyone knows, nothing says 'love' like another yard of unnecessary fabric.)
So there you have it. This bathroom is ready for use! If you come visit, you can do your business in the world's smallest bathroom!
