OhmigodOhmigodOhmigodOhmigodOhmigod


Okay. Breathe. We're still not completely done yet but the BIG THINGS are finished. I give you THE DOWNSTAIRS BATHROOM! This is the bathroom with the year-long sink saga; we started with this sink but, due to a design flaw in the sink itself, it wouldn't empty properly; there'd always be a little pool of water. The one nice thing Expo has done is that they let me choose a different (much more expensive) sink and they didn't charge the difference, though after two years, I would have been very surprised (and hissy-fittish) if they had. This new wall-mount sink solves a lot of problems: you see more of the floor (which I love) and the basin itself is a little more substantial. That medicine cabinet is temporary; a wall-mounted mirror is going in as soon as I save the money for that. The sink itself has a partitioned drawer that's much bigger, so I can lose the medicine cabinet storage.

And! They moved the toilet back against the wall, so I no longer have a walk-behind can. Only three things left in the whole house: seal the stone floor, re-bead a glass shower wall and install the laundry room counter backsplash. You too could live your bathroom fantasies....just twenty-seven months later!

Beautiful. I may even be inspired to raise the bar on my bath fantasies: "no dirty undies and no cat puke on the floor" seems insufficient somehow.

I like the tags on it. Very Minnie Pearl-ish.

No, seriously, it's so great. What a difference 27 months makes!

That bathroom seems a bit 2006. Perhaps you should consider a remodel...

I certainly hope you die soon.

The wall-mounted sink is awesome. It should make the 27-month wait a little less frustrating!

Love the floor. Is it like getting a foot massage when you walk in? And what's that stuff on the window sill?
