When we moved in, the bathroom looked like this. The narrow ledge running next to the tub was awkward, and the brown colored floor tiles were ugly. The pretty blue counter top had been replaced with brown formica-ish stuff.
We had everything removed, except the new tub/shower.
Instead of the long narrow strip next to the tub, we had a wider step made for easy access into the tub. The tub isn't level with the floor but is raised up, to accommodate the plumbing, so we needed some sort of step so people can into the tub.
We had floor tile installed and a new vanity made by the artist who made our front pedestrian gate. We hadn't planned on replacing the vanity but then I saw one that Tom had made for a local winery's tasting room and I had to have one. Brett rolled his eyes and agreed. We bought a sink that looks like a miner's gold pan since we live in the gold country (there are abandoned mines everywhere here). Brett made the window and door frames out of some reclaimed wood.
