The Bathroom Finale!

July 6, 2008
I walked into the bathroom first thing this morning and was amazed at the beautiful colors as the sunlight shone through the stained glass window. Wow! It is gorgeous!

There is not much left to do. Once hubby got home from work he hung the crystal candle chandelier over the tub with the vintage light cover which hides the hook. We hung several pictures including the beautiful picture of the hand holding the roses that my neighbor gave me. The rose potpourri given by my dear friend as a birthday gift is scenting the entire bathroom. It was getting late so I decided to call it a night.

I was up early this morning and began cleaning the bathroom for the final inspection. The building inspector showed up around 10:30 AM, inspected everything and passed it which can mean only one thing…

drum roll please…


In a mere ten months we have finally finished!!! I can’t believe it! Even as I type this I still can’t fathom the fact that the bathroom is actually complete!
After the inspector left I continued decorating. The china cabinet now houses towels, painted porcelain, and other useful trinkets. After moving a few more things around the d├ęcor was finally complete. Once everything was in its place I put the glass globes on the light fixtures making the bathroom look even more beautiful.

And so here ends the bathtub diaries. This project has brought many laughs, a few arguments, some bribery, an occasional threat, a few injuries, and a bus license for me. I have enjoyed sharing this experience with everyone. I would like to thank all of the people that have made this project bearable as well as beautiful. As much as I will miss writing these diaries I must bid all adieu as I have a date with an old claw foot tub and some bubble bath.
Happy soaking!
God Bless!
Before and After pictures will be posted soon so stop back by:).

    It must be bittersweet, after all that work, that you have moved away from your gorgeous bathroom and claw foot tub! Well, you'll just have to start all over again, that's all! It was a lot of fun reading these posts. You kept such detailed diaries... amazing! Can't wait to see more pics.
