The Rabbit Died ......
As promised, photos of my remodeled bathroom. But ...... I need to report that the rabbit died. I am, of course, referring to Bubba, the rescue rabbit. I am old enough to remember when the rabbit dying meant something else.
This is a shot of my "new" room. The tub came from Craig's List. The bead board came from an old wall. The toilet, sink and tile are brand spanking new.
The lights are new, too. Well, I bought them two years ago in anticipation. Medicine cabinet and mirror are re-used.
The new sink and vanity take up less space, but I lost storage.
I found the little cabinet to hold extra rolls of tissue at WalMart and it happened to match my decor. Holds 4 extra rolls and a box of kleenex. Funny thing about that purchase. I did not have my glasses on when I bought it and for some reason I thought it said it held FORTY rolls. I pondered this all the way home. Until I donned my trusty bifocals for the assembly. Four rolls, not forty.
This is the cabinet inset in the wall that he who rescues baby rabbits built to my specifications. Impressive, don't you think? Still have to put the trim around it.
My tile, so lovingly grouted.
Same picture of elephants bathing, in exactly the same place on the newly painted wall. The paint was given to me and I was never fond of the color, but decided to just make it work. I wanted colors that would match hard water stains and this pumpkin color fit the bill. I found the shower curtain at a thrift store.
The towel rods are actually drapery rods that I cut down and repainted. New over sized towels off the clearance rack.
Coming soon .......... new retail space.
