I’m stuck in a dream of crisp white subway tiles, marble, beveled mirrors, clawfoot tubs, and drippy crystal chandeliers. I’ve been pinning quaint cottage bathtubs and daydreaming of shabby chic whites. While the laundry is piling up in the basement, I’ve been busy browsing through magazines and searching through blogs for the perfect bathroom inspiration!
Well, we had our contractor over last night for a bit of a reality check and to see what we’re really getting ourselves into. And despite a couple of kinks, hold onto your britches… this thing might actually happen. I haven’t seen my honey’s super cheeseball grin in a long while. So now I’m in a whirlwind — I can’t think straight. What do I like? Which of my daydreams of sinks and fixtures have I narrowed it down to? What did I decide was my favorite color scheme?
We added this bathroom to our first house from scratch, which is how I was able to fit in a clawfoot. It was for the kids, of course! That seems to be how it goes. The kid’s bathroom in our current home desperately needs a little love and attention. Brace for it…
So here she is! Do you like her wallpaper? Ahem, let’s go easy on her, shall we? She’s not too bad really, I could have worked with her for sure; some of her vintage features are rather charming! She’s proudly showing off her 1933 original cast iron and her “sometime later” floral wallpaper — wrapping clear around the ceiling. Why is it wrapping clear around the ceiling anyway? If that’s not inspiration for a do over, I don’t know what is.
