Bathroom re-design

We knew we wanted to remodel the bathrooms as soon as we moved into the house. They were functional, but that's about it. Outdated linoleum, rusty medicine cabinets, and cheap plastic sinks add up to one big "UGH." But other projects took priority and we're always busy, so it took us a long time to get around to this one. I am so glad we finally did, though. My mom and dad generously came down from North Carolina to show us the ropes. They're great teachers - it looks so good I kinda can't believe we did it ourselves!

We forgot to take a before picture, but the fixtures, sink, floor, walls...everything was the same as in the master bathroom, here:

Pretty uninspired. But here's the guest bath after - I think it's pretty darn inspired!

Vasco's checking everything out...he's not quite sure he likes it.

"Hey, I can see my own reflection. I'm a pretty handsome cat.
This bathroom is OK by me!"

The centerpiece is the tile floor. I laid most of it myself! We're very happy with the results of the whole project. The problem is that the other bathroom looks even worse to us now - I don't think it'll be long before we tackle that one.

Let us know what you think!
