~Sneak Peek~

Hello guys, Thought I would give you a peek at my Outhouse bathroom that we have been working on for ever...


 

Remember I told you this was just a small bath right off my olden kitchen...Sorry about the poor lighting but no windrow and bad camera make for bad photos ha ha!!

See me in the mirror with my pj's on ha ha!! seems to be my outfit of choice since I'm still in recovery since my heart surgery..

I'm loving the new vessel sink here..the sink use to be right next to the toilet but since we had to tear out all the wall and ceiling in here due to termites..we moved the plumbing to put the sink on the other wall

Shower is now done..But still have not used it..we did it in marble tiles and moved it also to another wall
 Now the mirror is an old vanity mirror I had from my home 40 years ago..I just acid etched it to give it a differ look and hung it long ways

I don't know if Len will ever get this room done..I told him all I wanted for Christmas was this bathroom done but didn't  mention to tell him what Christmas ha ha!! We still have crown molding, baseboards and the chandy's to go up...Len keeps telling me he's retire..and you know what I figured out retirement is only for men..As I still clean house, cook, clean and scrub toilets and I also am suppose to be retired...still trying to figure out what I retired from ha ha!!
Love all you guys..THANK YOU all so much for sticking with me this past few months..And for those that have left my follower list..Too bad for you as I talked to Angelina Jolie and she was going to let me do a Brad Pitt give away lol!! 

Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and smiles Gloria

So glad you're feeling perky enough to post again, Gloria! Your bathroom looks great so far. The etching on the mirror is so pretty. You did a good job! Hope your recovery is going well. I'm still following, but I don't want Brad Pitt, even if A.J. does give him away, so you just keep him, o.k.? lol

Your recovery must be coming along well because I can see the jesting in your post. The bathroom looks great and I am sure Len will get it done soon. You are right men can retire but we women still have to work all the time. :) Have a blessed day. Madeline

Me, either, TARDEVIL...I don't want the infamous Mr. Pitt. hahaaaa

Now, if Harrison Ford, Sean Connery or Johnny Depp comes up for a giveaway, count me IN. ;))

Hi, Gloria, so glad you are feeling better. That bath is going to be wonderful. I am dying to redo a bath of ours but haven't found the energy to get started on it.
hugs, bj

That little Brad Pitt! Hmmm, I think I'll pass! :)
Be a sweetie,

PEA said...

Ooooh I'm loving your new bathroom! My bathroom upstairs needs to be completely redone...I'm guessing Len wouldn't want to come to Canada to do mine after finishing yours??? lol No doubt you will be one happy woman once he's got it completely done!!

It sounds like you're recovering well, long may it continue:-) xoxo

Oh Gloria, I LOVE that vessel sink on top of that lovely cabinet, and the etched mirror is beautiful. What a gorgeous place to take a shower. I think you should link to my V'tine party with a repeat of a post about your kitchen (since it is the "heart" of the home and since I "love" your kitchen. Hope you are taking care of yourself sweet friend. Crack that whip and get Len to finish your bathroom for you! Hugs, laurie
