The Brand New Upstairs Bathroom

At long last, I had a moment to share the bathroom photos.  But, this isn't your usual set of 'before and after' photos, because this space didn't start as bathrooms (as a reminder, the bathroom was in the middle of the kitchen when we bought the house - see photos here)

Before.....small, odd shaped bedroom with a folding plastic door
On the second floor, we took the smallest of the 4 bedrooms (aka the pot grow room - see Oddities post)  and turned it into a bathroom.  One of the most frequent questions we get is where was it....to the left of the chimney in the far left of this photo!
During - Installation of Green (Moisture Resistant) Wall Boards
While it was a bit chopped up for a bedroom (it has the furnace flue running through it as well as a sloped ceiling), the revamped space creates a great bathroom - including a space for the washer & dryer in a closet along the exterior wall.  The floor is a tumbled chiaro marble, with a marble and glass mosaic inset.

Bathroom - After

The same mosaic is featured in the tub surround and on the shelves behind the toilet.  I love the watery blues of the glass mosaic.  It adds a shimmer to the entire space.

The vanity provides drawer storage as well as a shelf with room for baskets or big items.  And the Restoration Hardware Lugarno sconces provide great light in front of the mirror.

So what do you think?  Did we get it right?
