Home Improvement Installment #2

We contracted our bathrooms out (to my BIL) before we moved in. I truly, truly regret now NOT having taken pictures of what the bathrooms looked like before the remodel.

Here is our master bathroom jacuzzi tub….one of my favorite places to relax.

The master bath shower….

And our vanity…..my contribution to the bathroom. I only wanted one thing, and it was this particular granite top. Jeff picked out everything else.

Here’s a shot of the kids bathroom toilet. Now why I took this picture, I’ll never know. I think it might be to show the wainscoting? Maybe to show that the bathroom functions as a bathroom? Look, there’s a toilet, and even a place to hang the bath towels?

I love this combination of slate. I picked the samples out while I was in the hospital. One of the more interesting things I did while incarcerated.

This bathroom just makes me happy. It is always bright and has really high ceilings so it feels very airy. Plus, all the kids can fit in the bathroom and still have room to spare. One of my favorite features of the bathroom is a sky light that lets in the sun. And here in Oregon, every ray of sun is highly desired. If you could have seen the purple bathtub, lavender toilet, purple Formica counter top with purple tile accents and purple grout in the floor tile, you’d probably appreciate the way the bathroom looks now as much as I do!

    Your bathroom is beautiful. If that was my bathroom, I don’t think I’d ever leave! Love the picture with your twins in the tub. There’s enough room in there for the two of them to swim.

    Love the bathrooms! I’m also very jealous that you take baths in your big tub! We have been in our house 2 years and I still haven’t taken a bath in the master tub…It’s too much work to take all the kids bath and water toys out:)

    Yours is beautiful but how could you “ruin” the beauty that was there before you moved in? Purple is EVERY womans dream, right? haha. You guys have a great eye for decorating. Good for you.

    I think my only goal in life now is to have a big jacuzzi tub, just like yours. Then I could be complete!

    Did I forget to mention that the master tub looks more inviting because of the two little pumpkins in it ; )!

    I love everything you have done! I can relate to the previous bathrooms you had…our former homeowners loved hunter green, brass, and black. The kitchen was where we started. Our shower looks like yours, except the tile is black/white on the foor, and black marble on walls. I love the light airy look of yours! Great job!
