Full Throttle Re-Model

It is upon us.  The bathroom re-model that we have been 
anxiously anticipating for months.

There is no turning back.  Not when your bathroom looks like this:

Here was our starting point.  
Seth is taking us on a tour through Pepto Bismol Land.  

"And here, ladies and gentlemen, we have more pink tile!"

Yes, there was a whole lotta' pink in this bathroom.  Pink floor tile, pink wall tile, pink countertop tile.  There actually used to be pink and white striped wall paper going from the tile line to the ceiling, but we got rid of that pretty soon after we moved in.  My friend Amy really liked the pink tile in a "vintage" sort of way.  Sorry Amy, I didn't save any for you!

(Side Note**- Click on Amy's name and head over to her blog to see information about the book that her and her husband Josh wrote called "From Ashes to Africa".  It tells the story of the adoption of their son Silas from Ethiopia and it will be out in March. We are so excited for them and are eagerly anticipating our copy!)

This is our friend Danny:

He owns a landscaping business (Ponds and Lawns if you live in the Collin County area) and it was too cold to work outside yesterday.  So he brought two of his guys over and they demolished the heck out of our bathroom in less than 4 hours.

Here are some pictures of the process:
Bye, bye pink tile.  We shed no tears for you.

So this is what it looks like currently:

It is a bit unsettling that the underbelly of our house is now exposed to our cozy, warm dwelling space. It is cold, drafty and downright scary under there. I have to keep Seth and Caleb from getting into that bathroom. Because if one of them decides to go exploring and crawls under the house (Caleb), Mama's not so sure she is going to go in after him!

Ok, I got to agree with your friend! I like the pink vintage tile! But alas, I know not everyone does. Can't wait to see the completed look!

Oh, my goodness! Weren't we just there a few days ago? Crazy how quickly it all comes down!

That pink tile reminds me of my grandmother's bathroom. It may be vintage but that color...I don't know it just doesn't do it for me.

It was great seeing you guys. Look forward to seeing you in August! Hope the remodel goes smooth and quick!
