I promise I will only show you these photos one time and then be done with it!
You don't even have to look if your squeamish...but I thought I'd show ya anyway just in case you feel the need to have a "before" shot to compare the final result to.
Ah yes...here we are in Ojai, living a life of serenity, beauty and peace and quite.
At the end of a long day of gardening and sore muscles...this is what I have to look forward to...
the current master bath, in all of its dated loveliness
And yes the walls are not square, there is no window and there is a strange hump in the middle of the floor..
uh oh... not good
When we first bought the house this room had a fresh coat of off white paint.
I changed out a few knobs and put this huge mirror up...
which looks totally ridiculous, I might add,
but it was sitting in a closet so I hung it here
The sink tops are that weird formica stuff with pinkish swirls and scalloped edges.... missing the stoppers which we never could find a replacement for.
Every time I brush my teeth I wind up staring down that little hole and wondering where it all goes....
all the way to the ocean?
I really don't know, but that sink hole scares me...really... I'm not kidding.
And for an added bonus:
Toss in a few mystery stains, hinges with 20 coats of paint, cheap door knobs, a gross shower curtain, a variety of dated wiring, vinyl flooring and zero water pressure....
this all adds up to one thing...
time to demo!
So here we are at the end of day one....
Yes we have a few problems....one of which is how to get that gigantic bath tub out!
I swear the thing is like a cruise ship
Some odd holes and rotten wood..oh dear
And a few other really bad things that I don't dare show you...
think "Willard" the movie
I thought this would be fun...
not so much
Oh and on day two
"the guy I don't quite trust"
I need a martini
