SOoooo remember like 200 years ago when I told you we were FINALLY getting our creepy bathroom updated a bit!!!??
I can't remember either because its been so dang long since I last mentioned it but here's the proof - Bathroom renos teaser
Well Hallelujah I am finally posting about it!
Just to recap when we bought this house (4 years ago) there had been a lot of updates, but for some sneaky reason the bathroom was untouched!
Everyone knows bathrooms and kitchens sell houses, come on now.
Well we completely ignored that rule because we bought this place anyway with the hopes of upgrading asap..
Asap quickly turns into 3 years later when you start planning a wedding, get married and have a baby popping into the picture. Plus tubs/ showers/ accessories/ labour are EXPENSIVE, jeesh.
I'm buying Elliott books now on how to become a plumber/ carpenter so down the road we can put his booty to work!
In fact my plan is to have enough kids to cover all work trades, that way I will never have to pay a... mechanic, electrician, hair stylist ever again!!
MUahahahah its actually kind of brilliant. (well there may be some flaws in the plan, hey I never said it was perfect its just the plan lol)
Ok, lets get this started..
I'm not going to say much I'm just going to let the photos speak for themselves.
Trust me I debated not posting these photos because the tub was pretty darn scary...
Newfoundlanders have this weird way of patching things...
They will use anything to patch something.
I am not making this up, multiple houses we looked at when we first moved to Newfoundland had floor tiles used as patchwork.. on walls.. in showers as you're about to witness...
brace yo' self.
^Those brown rectangle's are floor tiles.
Why are there floor tiles going around my tub???
They don't stick once they get wet, they're meant for dry surfaces...
I guess all the lovely caulking will prevent leaks....
I'm thinking maybe someone had a little too much ^^^^^
when they decided to make that move..
When we finally booked the guys to come install our new tub I naively thought it wouldn't be too big of a mess. I mean we have a 1/2 bath so we can use that, life will go on as normal no biggie.
WRONG oh so very wrong!
^ At first Elli loved it!!
Yayyy new people new "toys"!
Then the banging, drilling, hammering, sawing started....
Nap time = delayed, derailed..
Me = deranged..
^^^ This time hand me a glass....
^ The guys were in and out all day (s), it was hard for Elliott to play with his toys so I had to create distractions...
^ Oh did I mention I thought the rest of our house would remain untouched...
Ha HA HA ha,
^ but then THIS!
Glorious glorious this!!^^^
^ I've never seen anything so beautiful...
We went showerless for 3 days total, yikes stinky.
The guys who did the installation were so amazing, they did a phenomenal job.
Once they caught onto Elliott schedule they took their breaks during nap time and didn't once mind the golden retriever kisses that greeted them constantly.
The bathroom terrors are now just a distant memory...
Our new tub is the comfiest, coziest, soakiest, most spa like beauty I've ever seen..
but maybe I'm a bit biased ;)
