Bathroom – before

We have still not closed on our house but, the listing has moved to pending which means it’s 100% accepted and in process.

When I left my last house I thought the only room I was going to miss was the third floor bathroom.  (shown below) I am sure I blogged about it somewhere.  I was in loved with the claw foot tub.  Actually these tubs are hard to find still in homes, as many people ripped them out to install a more modern tub shower combination.

Fast forward to the bathroom in our new house, and I still get a vintage tube, only it’s on a pedestal.  More of an Art Deco look.  I will adjust.  The floor is small white (really filthy white) octagon tiles.  Original to the date of the house.  A few are missing I am hoping to be able to replace them and keep the original floor

Here’s another view of the before bathroom below : showing the tiles, the pedestal, and the part of an rather ugly sink.

There is paint on the glass part of the window, actually paint is everywhere which I hope to be removing and replacing with something more appealing.  Remember we are doing all this work on a shoe-string budget.  So I may be limited in my choices.  We want to fix everything, make it appealing to live in, and then eventually either sell or keep as a rental.

At least that’s the plan at the moment.  I really like the house, and yard, and may not want to leave once we are finished.  Only time will tell.
