My nesting list complete :)

This bathroom project didn't just take place. I have several post to catch up on, so I can have the events chronicled for our family. This project was on my list of things I would have loved to have had done before Mary Ann was born. But my list was longer than time allowed for. My sweet husband and children continued to work on my "nesting list" after Mary Ann was born. This bathroom was the last project on the list and was completed in July.

This bathroom was part of our addition we added on 14 years ago, and not much other than a coat of paint had changed in the 14 years. So, it needed a little cleaning up. I forgot to take before pictures, the pictures below were taken after Arthur had taken out the vanity. But it will give you a little bit of an idea :)



BEFORE
...






Carpet...not good with kids! And you see the tub at one time had ceramic knobs...gone from children using them to help climb in the tub :o






The work began...



Arthur removing the tile in front of the shower....




Elizabeth pulling out staples in the floor from where we had had carpet....



The laying of the flooring, Ruth Ella felt the need to help :)




We are very pleased with the flooring, it's durable and easy to clean!



We didn't make any real drastic changes, but I'm loving it!



The finished bathroom....



We purchased a mirror to hang above the tub.....




We replaced the light fixture.....




We painted the tub frame a moss green, but kept the same shades......




We kept the same curtain for the shower, and the pictures on the walls (they are from our trips to Nicaragua).....




The flooring is probably my favorite thing we changed....



Finally we purchased a new vanity and counter top. Now if you noticed the wall color didn't change much, it's just a little shade darker than before. We really like the taupe color because it's so neutral.


I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

I love changing the little things that give the room a new fresh look. I noticed the bare feet during staple removal. Actually I noticed that more than anything else. LOL!
