You may remember that this reno was rather involuntary: a pipe broke in the wall, and the only way to fix it was to tear out the (ugly) tile and wall behind the tub. But since the whole bathroom was nasty, we decided to go for it and do the whole room sooner rather than later.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. If a picture is worth a thousand words....well, then, this would be a compacted epic. Enjoy the tour!

The very best part for us is that we did 100% of the work! It is so exciting to see this vision come to reality! Thanks to Todd for all his hard work...it's good to be married to a handy perfectionist! And I loved getting my paint and trim groove on...
now for a bath!
