Abby's New Bathroom


You may recall that we had to do some unexpected, immediate updating of Abby's bathroom.  It used to be the kids' bathroom and now Abby shares it with guests and her kids.


Mr. Creations worked weekends, a little at a time.  It's finally done except for a few finishing touches.  I would like a shelf over the toilet and we need new drawer/door pulls.  The  cabinetry and sink/counter were the only features not replaced.  I love these new mirrors.


Mr. Creations lets me pick out all of the "stuff" and decide on colors and he does all of the labor. These two mirrors replaced the one gigantic mirror.  All of the new hardware and fixtures are brushed nickel. 


The walls are Whisper White and I love the white waffle weave cotton shower curtain.  It's a window-less bathroom so I wanted it to feel as light as possible.  The floors are a bit darker than the photos shows. 


I decided on a sea mist, turquoise, mushroom, white color scheme.  The new light fixture has two bulbs instead of one.  It used to feel like an interrogation room in there.


Previously there was no place to put soap or shampoo except the corners of the tub.  Always a sloppy mess.  When Mr. Creations took the wall down to the studs he discovered lots of depth so created a nice shelf for the shower necessities.


Mr. Creations is a handy hubby.  Handy hubbies have happy wives and doggies!  Abby loves her new bathroom.  She awaiting guests.

It looks very inviting. I'd have to hire someone else's husband to redo my bathroom!! Lucky you to have a live-in handyman.

Handy man are the best!

My husband isn’t handy at all, we always makes jokes about it, but no compaints here because he cooks the most gorgeous meals!

Love it! The colors are beautiful and so tranquil. Will you give Mr. Creations a high five from me? He did a fabulous job!

Lynn said...

Beautiful. You are right about handy hubbies! We have a bathroom that needs redoing, one too many teenagers spilling water out of the tub/shower one too many times, (sigh).

Beautiful make-over! Abby must be one lucky pup to have her own bathroom! My dog is allowed in the basement wash tub for his baths (and he only just fits) ... mustn't show him what a pampered life other dogs lead ;) Love the clean, fresh colour scheme ... really nice! Wendy

Yep, Mr. Creations is a keeper for sure. I'm thinking that Abby must be thrilled with her new bathroom and will be only too happy to share it with her favorite guests.

Nice little guest bathroom. Love the lightness. I have a handy hubby, too. Our house is still under first construction. I admire your get 'er done guy! Would like to see the wall quilt you hang in there.

Simone de Klerk said...

Wow, it must be so much fun to take a shower or bath now!
Am I right to think that Mr. Creation is quite tall?

Sandy said...

Lovely!! I wish I had those tiles and a recessed area around my tub...great job!
