Met Monday - guest bath


First of all I would like to again thank Susan for hosting this event,even when I'm not participating it is great fun to see the improvements that others are making in their homes.Make sure you go to Susan's blog to see the complete list of current participants and pay them all a visit.Susan has shared her beautiful front entry makeover this week and it is gorgeous.


Well,it's been 2 weeks since my last post so I thought it was about time to do something else here.My job has been keeping me away from doing very much blogging lately and I apologize for not being able to pay more visits around blog land lately.I'm happy to say that it doesn't look like they will be needing me very much for awhile anyway and you may see a little bit more of me around your blogs.Thanks so much to all of you who have visited my blog,I really enjoy your comments.




When we first got this place part of the space where this bathroom now is was part of an addition that came with the mobile home, it was an entry porch.We even changed where all the entry ways are so we used part of this space to make a small powder room.The other part of the space was used as a laundry room.Over time my husband missed having a real shower and got an idea to use part of the laundry room,that was really only being used for extra storage for the addition of a shower.These pictures show the first little bathroom he made,I took them right before the wall was taken down to add the shower.I really did like the faux finish I had done in there but I was getting a little tired of the look anyway.






So the wall that the sink was on got knocked out to make room for the shower.I did get to pick everything out but I had to do it fast.When he decided to do this he didn't waste anytime.


We had just enough travertine tile to do the floor,right down to the last tile.I had seen it on a great deal at home depot months earlier and just bought it on a whim,not having a clue what I would use it for...got lucky.The vanity is certainly not a one of a kind,got it at a local lumber store for $100.The mirror and glass shelf were a tiny splurge from home depot.The mirror tilts and is perfect for when he shaves he tells me.

I am sure you can see some of the grout still on the tile in this picture,it is all off now though.I had an idea to try something different on the ceiling of the shower and so we used a product called miroflex tile.It has that old tin look and claimed to be extremely waterproof.I am pretty happy with it except I still wish that I had chosen one that was a little plainer and closer to the color of the tiles.We looked at doors and I wanted a frame less glass door but we would have had to special order it and they were very expensive.I did a little research and decided to give it a try without a door.We knew we could always add it on later if we thought it was needed....luckily,it's not.Water doesn't splash out and it makes it feel very open and larger.The little glass blocks have lights behind them for extra lighting in the shower space.The ceiling is quite low so it wasn't possible to have them in the ceiling part of the shower.





We kept the same toilet but added a cabinet for extra storage.This cabinet had sandblasted glass in it that was damaged.They let me pick out any glass that I wanted at no extra charge! I chose this one because it camouflages items well and the glass is exactly the same as the glass blocks.


I bought paint and the color was so bad,I think he might have mixed it wrong because I can't believe I picked something so far off from what I had in mind.I ended up using some of the left over paint from the kitchen,added some of the dining room paint color to it and who know what else and it turned out to be just what I had in mind.My husband thinks I'm crazy when I do that but it wasn't the first time and it won't be the last either.


So there it is,I've never used it but they tell me it's a good shower,I'm a bath girl.We are currently planning out and making purchases for my bathroom redo which hopefully gets going over the next couple of months.I have been able to take my time making every decision for that project slowly unlike this whirlwind project.

Found you via, Susan from Naps on the porch. Love your bath redo. I love your ceiling tiles. I hope to use those someday around a tub when I get the time and money to buy the tub of my dreams. I want a claw footed one with the tiles in silver placed arounf d it for an old fashioned look. Your bath turned out really nice. We have a rain shower also and we love it. My husband is tall so it works out perfectly for him.
