Well... it seems that the original thread made its way to the archives, so I dug it up and here's a link for anyone who wants to catch up from the beginning.

beginning the make-over

Don wanted to finish most of it before he had his surgery yesterday. The only things left to do are the door and drawer fronts of the vanity, and a frame around the mirror. It's difficult to take good pictures in the small distance of the room, so here are the best ones I have - he said he has some, so I'll post more when he sends them to this computer.

The far corner of the tub/shower - see the pillow???
I'm soooooooooo ready to take that first relaxing bath! thumbup

Another of the same corner showing the top tile:

The opposite wall with the new brushed pewter fixtures:

Tomorrow I will wash the new towels and add them to the room - got the shower curtain up too - will take more pictures then.

Thanks, all! kissies
Diane - it's called seagreen - Don had taken this picture the other day - it shows the color a bit better... still a tiny bit off but you get the idea. There is a window at the far end of the room - it's long and narrow - I'm hoping to put up a glass shelf for plants, and there is a hanger in front of the window - not a lot of space, but enough for a few.

He also took this one which shows the corner better than mine...

Just took this of the new shower curtain - it's so hard to take good pictures in there. :rolleyes:

mel - I have only posted bits and pieces about Don's surgery - it's not really in 1 place - I think I'll go post about it in the dial-up deli now - thanks for asking.

Very nice Lynne, you picked a great shower curtain that goes really well with the color of the tiles and stuff. I really like it.

It's funny Triss - I had this curtain waaaaaaaaaay before I chose the tiles! laugh Duh
I had even misplaced it, when Don started tearing out the old bathroom, and only recently found it again - I was so thrilled that it went with the tiles so well!

Amy took the first [Linked Image]/ [Linked Image] last night - all seems good! She even went as far as to say that she liked the bathroom now that the towels and rugs are in there.

I really liked that green color too, Diane!
I have 2 different towels that match it exactly - one is called rich aqua, and the other is called Greenwood Lane. Same exact color - different companies.

I took a few more shots yesterday - again, it's so hard to get a good view in a small space.

The sinks before putting everything back underneath and on top -
Don hasn't painted the doors or drawer fronts yet, so they are still open.

Close-up of tiling on vanity counter and sink.
Don got a piece of plywood for the counter and did all the tiling himself -
he did a great job, didn't he??? kissies

I have 2 smaller ones up above the main mirror -
Don is still going to build a frame around the large mirror.

Here are the 2:

Thanks, Diane!

A little secret - I found them at 2 different T.J.Maxx's last summer.
Gotta love those stores - they were all very reasonable!
