Bathroom Updates

As I mentioned in my last post, Chris and I decided to moderate our approach to the main floor bathroom and replace fixtures and sink instead of gutting the space. We replaced the pedestal sink,  medicine cabinet, shower curtain bar, towel rack bars, light fixture and bathtub faucet/showerhead. Chris took down an old cabinet and filled in the crazy laundry shoot at the end of the tub, and we hired a company to re-enamel the bathtub. Lastly, we put up new decorations. Chris and I are both happy with the updates and glad we didn't spend the extra money on a complete overhaul. To use a technical term, there was an "ick" factor to some of the old bathroom: among other things, the shower curtain bar was rusty, the sink had a big crack in the base and the medicine cabinet was brown and worn around the edges and didn't even close completely. Maybe to others, the updates seems minor because we kept the blue tile, but it's made a huge difference for us.

I took the before and after pictures in different lighting so it may be hard to get a true comparison.

Lastly, because I think it's hilarious in retrospect, here's a picture of a bar of soap that Fiona bit during a bath about a month ago. You can see her teeth marks. She promptly puked into the bath water, which was a lot of fun for both of us. She's hasn't tried to bite a bar of soap since.

I love the updates, Erin! You made some very good decorating choices, and it looks so fresh, airy, and modern.
