A Place Never Before Seen…

…at least on this blog.

It’s my bathroom at my dad’s house.

So here’s the story: the house was built in the early ’40s, it was fine, but not as up-to-date as the rest of the house. Also, the tile had some damage. And the faucet stinks. Not literally, but there was no pressure when I turned the water on and when it was on the hot water just dripped a teeny-tiny dribble. The rest was cold.

Quintessential vintage bathroom, right? It is pretty adorable, but then you get a bit closer…

It’s a wee bit damaged. And all of the gray is a bit… too much gray. As much as I love the color, it just doesn’t suit this bathroom.

(Ah yes, the trash. Excuse that. I was too lazy to throw it out.)

The toilet is a fancy schmancy TOTO toto (haha I crack myself up) and it will stay. It is pretty dang comfortable if that isn’t too weird to say that.

Years of wear and tear are pretty visible.

So, we have decided to make it pretty modern (my step-mother even hired a professional interior designer, even though I would have been happy to design it myself) and here is the sample Miss-Suzanne-The-Interior-Designer came up with:

Isn’t it lovely?? I would never have thought to pick out this, but I’m pretty excited to expand what I love.

I have made an (awful) rendition of what it may look like:

That’s my dog, Wrigley. Ain’t she a cutie?

Graphic designer, I am not. But you get the point.

See ya later!
