Evidently the shower in the master bathroom had a history of leaking. Of course we found this out the hard way, not by disclosure when the home was purchased. Three months worth of weekly visits by a plumber, tile guy along with a wad of cash the problem is resolved. History only repeats itself, these things only happen when you can the least afford.
The original shower was enclosed with a nice white marble on all the walls and a tile flooring. Unfortunately, the pictures of the original shower and work in progress were accidently deleted from the compact flash card before uploading to the computer. I guess it could have been worse. Like the time I was shooting film, (those days before digital, remember?) or thought I was, only to discover I never loaded the camera! <–That discovery was made while on my return plane ride home from the shoot location. Oops.
Because the marble evidently was placed before the doorway and header were built, this meant the only way to remove the marble without damage was to demolish the doorway and header. Uhm, that idea was spendyyyyyy. So, tile would now have to suffice. When given a plethora of chocolates to choose from I can name my choice in like a nano-second. Tile, not so much.
Here’s the shower today. If I had taken a picture of the inside you’d see it is big enough for two.
Not the best of images. The wall color outside of the shower is a sort of robin blue/green.
Now a shot as you walk into the bathroom. The doors on the right & left are his/her’s closets.
At the end of the entrance a bit to the right is my vanity.
What, you want to be snoopy and see what’s in our medcine cabinets? Marvin the nosey of June’s byebyepie blog so wanted to see. (Catch a link to her blog on my link list, I promise that her blog is the best way to start your day)
Well, his actually looks this way. Obviously, when he finds a bargain he goes for it.
I wasn’t about to show you my cabinet without a “bit” of purging. :)
Yep, that’s so me, not only do I leave a few globs drops of gel in every bottle, but I’m the one that places the soda bottle back in the fridge with less than a swallow left in it.:) Pick your jaw up and let’s move on forgetting I ever showed you this picture.
This is his vanity and you can see the tub. If it wasn’t for wrinkly skin I could soak in that tub all day.
Closer look at the soaking tub. (You may have noticed this table has been moved to the entryway)
Looking back from the tub on the wall you’ll see the ironing board and the door to the biffy. The toilet room has tile flooring. (Thank goodness, the idea of carpet in there would gross me out) Someday the little black spot on the ceiling will be replaced with a small chandelier.
So, now you have the poop scoop on my new shower and the rest of the bathroom.
Hope you have gorgeous day!
