Let's just call this the "Misfits Bathroom". Everything we ordered for this bathroom...didn't fit! But my husband is an expert at...adjustments. And so adjustment after adjustment, this bathroom was pieced together. We knocked out the linen closet adjoining the bathroom to create more space. At first I was hesitant (it was my husband's idea), but now I am SO glad we did!
When we moved in, we had the bathroom on the main level done. It's the bathroom we've been using for over a year now. It's very small with a small claw foot tub and no window. So bathing 3 kids, or having to go all the way downstairs for a midnight tinkle was really getting old. You haven't seen pictures of this bathroom because it was never quite perfect. Now that the upper is finished, we have to do work on the downstairs one again. Typical!
Well, the upstairs bath was the LONGEST of all our projects in the house. This is how it went:
Early November--Demolition of bathroom commences
Then the electrical part
And just a little more electrical
Christmas time--Finally walls, floors and paint!
Sink is too short for the drain coming out of the wall
We make adjustments
January 1st - It's ALMOST done!!
First sink faucet didn't fit
Ordered another faucet
More Waiting while our faucet ships from China to Kalispell, IN (which doesn't exist)
Faucet STILL doesn't fit
Quick adjustment and the faucet is in and working. Yay!
Ordered faucet for tub
Received faucet...doesn't fit.
Researched and found swing arms to make it work
Waited for swing arms
Received swing arms! Tub faucet put together and put in copper piping!
EVERYTHING is done...we just need a shower head!
Ordered shower head
Shower head out of stock :-(
Ordered another shower head
Received shower head and IT FIT!!
March 22nd -Took one VERY LONG, VERY GIGGLY shower!!
It took forever, but I am still smiling through every shower I take. I LOVE my new bathroom! It still has some work left to do, such as a shelf and small cabinet and some decor on the walls. But here it is...FINALLY!
