We are in the middle of packing for our trip "back home", but I wanted to get these before and after pictures posted. I will do a more complete job on the bathroom when I get back, but since I had taken these photos for the stone mason to use I thought I would share them with you too ...
Bathroom Tub Before
Bathroom Tub After
Obviously, we gutted the whole thing and took out the huge tub to replace it with something a bit more manageable. I especially like the stone surround on the tub deck because it brings a bit of the rustic outdoors into our renovated space.
I don't have a before picture of the fireplace because it was a last minute addition to finish updating the space, but let me paint a picture for you. The original fireplace stood in all of it's 1980's glory with a slate tile facade on the bottom half and a heavy cedar herringbone design on the top half. The fireplace enclosure gleamed with a high-gloss polished brass fire screen that was quite the scene stealer as it was all I ever saw when I looked at the fireplace.
Now we have the same rocks that we featured around the tub in the bathroom to tie the two spaces together and a rustic mantel that I found on ebay of all place. The lights were added when we did the remodel because our bedroom doesn't have any overhead lighting. Now this fireplace is a focal point and I love it.
