Hi there, welcome back. OK, so a lot has happened since last week. I am in full-on, “Oh my God, what have I done?!?” mode. You know that feeling of panic when you ask yourself “why did I do this??” Yes, that would be me. The bathroom is now officially torn apart but is slowly being put back together!
Last week, I mentioned our over-sized bath tub in our tiny bathroom. For years, I have wanted to tear it out and open up the space so that I could put a piece of furniture in it’s place that would provide additional storage. Well, it has happened. (hence, the “Oh my God, what have I done?”)
Let me start by saying that we never used the tub. We might have used it 5 times in 7 1/2 years and it was taking up precious real estate. What about resale? For us, that is not an issue. We will be in this home for the foreseeable future. With 3 kids still in school, the youngest only in Kindergarten, this is home, so I want to do what works for us now.
The plumbing has since been capped off and pipes buried under a small patch of concrete. If/when we sell our house, the plumbing can be tapped into and a freestanding tub can easily be put in.
Here is what I keep holding onto as I go through this process…..my inspiration board for the bathroom!!
A classic, white, timeless bathroom.
Isn’t it funny how before you start a project it seems like it’s going to be a little project, and then as soon as you get into it, you realize there is nothing little about it?!?!
Please check back next week when I share the other elements that I have planned for this space. And don’t forget to check in on these ladies!!
