This is pretty much how the bathroom was when we moved in. The only thing I did (besides cleaning) was to attempt to remove the border at the top. That wasn't very successful....
Ok, entering the bathroom....lovely rust-stained bathtub to the right, sink to the left just past the door. The toilet is behind the short wall at the end of the tub, in front of the window.
The lovely toilet area.
Above the toilet area...again notice the mildew everywhere, yuck!! I had to bleach that pretty regularly. See how the corner is slanted? There is a big pipe back there that runs up through the roof and down into our basement. I think Jim said it was the exhaust for the septic....or something like that...
The beautiful peeling paint covered-I-don't-know-what above the tub...note the nasty mildew on the ceiling/walls.
Here is the door to the nice big closet, it runs the length of the room.
Looking into the closet.
Looking at the bathroom from the toilet area. Horrible old sconces, pedestal sink, old medicine cabinet with the mirror finish coming off under the glass...blech!
The bathtub. You can just see some of the orange stain (see first pic) from our rusty water.
I didn't bother cleaning it before the tear out ;-)
So that's pretty much it! Pretty gross, we had to live with this for almost 4 years!! WOW! I can't believe it was that long! Though it wasn't usually this yucky (I just stopped caring there towards the end lol) it was just plain old and ugly and peely and in desperate need of HELP! I can't wait to show you the after pics! But I still have a couple of decorative touches I want to get finished before I show you. So until then, here is a teaser to hold you over!
