time for a before and after!

Our basement bath/laundry remodel if finally complete.

Here's the before - just a dumpy laundry room:

And now... Tada! (and meet Willie, who is fascinated with his own shadow)

The motorcycle cabinet pulls...

Diamond plate wainscoting and the new black 'throne'

I've gotta take better pics with a real camera. Stupid phone.

I'm addicted.

now if I only pull myself away from this long enough to LEAVE THE OFFICE AND GO HOME! I'm only yelling at myself. is hella cool

long overdue update

I haven't updated in a while. Not much to share until this week. The 3rd bath - the 'mantown' bath - should be completed this week, well at least the major stuff. Gotta get hubby to put on cabinet doors after the plumber has done his thing and then we're all set. We're doing diamond plate 'wainscoting' and it's coming out really cool. I can't wait to take pictures. My husband has crazy ideas for painting the trim some crazy, tacky colors and I told him if he touched the trim, I'd kick his butt. He argues that it needs to stand out more - dood, I got you diamond freakin' plate wainscoting, motorcycle shaped cabinet pulls and a black toilet, that's not enough? Don't forget the red hot LG washer and dryer too!

::shakes head::

Also trying to decide on colors to paint the exterior of the house. Something in the style of craftsman - earth tones - but WHAT!?!!? I'm usually pretty good at figuring out interior colors, but I am struggling with exterior. The painters are already booked, but we don't yet have a start-date, but I know I'm running out of time on this decision. The challenge is, I picked out windows with a dark bronze finish, so the colors have to complement that color too.

I will follow up with bath pics any day now...
