February 24, 2013



Can't wait to see your "New and improved" bath! I'm sure it'll be charming once you get at it and incorporate your stash of goodies in there.Our kids bath has a tub/shower in it too and I loathe that. I got lost and started looking at all your birds in there :-)
Thanks for sharing!
Have a great day.


I am SO excited to see what you do in here! I love all of your vintage touches. It will be wonderful!!!
Just. Can't. Wait!


How exciting!! My only bathroom is so tiny, it's ridiculous!! I had to chuckle at your hidden light switch. My dining room light switch is in the kitchen! When we moved in, I had to hunt for it. Makes you wonder what builders were thinking-- or not thinking! Good luck!


good luck! we still haven't really started on our remodel! i love that big counter under the windows, i wouldn't know what to do with that much beautiful counter space! it will look great with the pedistal sink.


I can't wait to see what you do! I don't think I've ever seen more cabinets in a bathroom! What a great project - I am looking forward to seeing all your vintage touches that will be awesome, I know.

Can't wait to follow your bathroom project! It's amazing how exciting and stressful construction can be. I seriously love your kitschy bathroom decor. Take good care of your birds!


I'm looking forward to watching the work in progress and seeing the goodies you have "stashed"!

Love the anticipation of seeing the progress and final product of your new bathroom! I kind of wish you went first so I could steal ideas if need be... ;) Mine is almost finished and ready for photos...the plumber is here right now installing the last of plumbing...it's looking great! Can't wait for yours!! :)

Can't wait to see the transformation, and all of the vintage goodies that will be making an appearance! I hope it all happens fast, and without a hitch!


You're decor certainly masks the flaws in the bath, I wouldn't have noticed them if you hadn't pointed them out...mine is similar age and hope to 'update' or gut it someday; however, I want a new kitchen worse, so keep adding band-aids :) Can't wait to see the progress!


That first picture is one of the cutest bathrooms I have ever seen. I wouldn't change it. However, as the photo gallery moves on, one can see why you want a change. I know you will make it wonderful and I, too, am anxious to see the transformation with all your vintage goodies included!!

I've got to say...I think the "bones" of the bathroom are fantastic. In my mind, very vintage-y. I think the counter/cabinet/sink area is so quaint. Love the archway to the shower. What about just replacing tub/shower and toilet? Change out flooring? Painting always does wonders. And you can always change out sinks and countertops. Wallpaper? Might save you some money. I just finished two bathroom remodels in my 1947 home...$60k!!

I know it's going to look fabulous and be full of inspiration. Can't wait to see!


Between your contractor's skills and your collections, I'm sure it will turn out great! We have the dreaded beige toilet, too, and you're right on the matching issue. I'm not in favor of any bathroom fixture that's not white!


Oh, I can't wait to see it finished!! Have fun! xo Heather


I see a lot of vintage charm in the bathroom..I like how it the counter angles and the curtain underneath & what appears to be a 1920s arch. I'm gearing up to have our 2nd bathroom redone but I still want the vintage '50s look to keep the integrity of my 1954 house.
But, I can understand getting rid of the beige and shallow tub.
