bathroom renovation

after robert & I got married, I moved into his charming historic 1935 bungalow. while I loved my new home (and especially the person in it!), I wasn't thrilled with the bathroom (the only bathroom, mind you). the mirror was so high that I couldn't see; the pedestal stink allowed for no storage whatsoever; the wooden window in the shower was rotten; the wall tile was cracked; there was only one electric outlet. you get the picture.

so robert took two weeks off from work & got started on the demo. because our walls are plaster, they are a disaster to tear out. but after a few days, he got it all cleared out & put up dry wall & greenboard. he also added more outlets (even one in the drawer where I keep my hairdryer! he's a gem). we hired someone to tile the floor and the shower. robert also hired his friend to make this awesome concrete countertop & backsplash that we are so happy with (we're so not granite people). the rest of the cosmetic stuff, robert did himself. here are a few pics of the before & after:

shower & floor tile: ann sacks
mirror: scan design
shower curtain: anthropologie
wooden floor mat: crate & barrel
hand towels: pottery barn
vanity, sink & faucet: home depot
concrete countertop: custom made
