The Before!

The original cabinets, tile around tub and carpet with the tub step.

The original shower stall above. Below the destruction begins. Notice the plumbing is on the left side of the shower wall, and that gorgeous blue wallpaper!

Months ago we started to remodel our master bath thanks to a leaky shower and black mold in the wall. I realized after the fact that I didn't take any before shots of the whole bathroom. So, much to my mother-in-law's disgust I am using her bathroom as a fill-in, since we have the same model house. In her defense she does plan on remodeling hers soon. Thanks MIL!

The After!

I love the cabinets painted black, and the new floor. Plus getting rid of the step in front of the tub made the room look even bigger.

This is a great shot of the new shower in the reflection of the mirror. Moving the plumbing to the other shower wall, enabled us to open up the side over the tub (thanks dad).

We kept the original tub, just changed the faucets in the whole bathroom (man those are pricey). You can kinda see the floor tile in the shower here....might be my favorite part! The hall in front of the shower leads to the potty, not too exciting....hence no pics. It was a long, tedious and expensive project, but I now LOVE my bathroom.
