Our upstairs bathroom sold our house to us. Not because of what it looked like, but because of what it contained. An antique, cast iron, claw foot tub! I think Craig started thinking in that moment how to convince me to replace it with a standard tub/shower combination. He is practical, I am…well a little less practical! I instantly began envisioning our “three men in a tub” and fell in love.
Here is the bathroom the way it was when we moved in 5 years ago.
My babies are no longer little boys. They are getting big! I knew it was time to be a little more practical, like my husband! We were all sharing a small stand up shower on the first floor, so I let Craig remove my tub…and it sat in our sitting room until we sold it on Craig’s list!
The next thing I know, Craig had plumbers in the house for two days getting the job done! I love my cozy Cape style house, but the one thing I struggle with is storage space. We do not have a linen closet, so I found myself storing bathroom items in random closets upstairs! Craig built shelves between the end of the tub and the wall…and they came out amazing!
I love gray and white. For the walls we used Martha Stewart’s Bedford Gray and I used her Cement Gray for the vanity. I love the contrasting grays.
I still need to finish a few things, but here are my favorite accessories so far!
I love how it turned out, and I ask Craig every day why it took us so many years to do this!
