The Bathroom Before
I'm not going to lie. When it came to purchasing my house, the bathroom was nearly a deal breaker. Eighty percent of my home was perfect—a reflection of the history and love that had been poured into the structure over 80-odd years. But the sole bathroom (and kitchen, which I will address later) had been neglected. The tiles were cracked, the tub was stained and the fixtures and appliances were what one contractor described as the equivalent of cheap beer. I knew that in order for me to feel comfortable in my home, I had to transform the bathroom with champagne upgrades on a table wine budget.
