One of these days I will post a One Room Challenge update on a Wednesday like we are supposed to, but today is not that day! Our family went out of town for 6 days, so not much got done in the way of physical labor, but I did do some planning. Also, right before we left, we installed the between-vanity double sconce!
Above is my concept for the bathtub area. As I said in my previous ORC post I’m dreaming up this room in three categories – vanity area, tub area and shower area. The vanity area is almost done – no going back on decisions now! So next up is the tub area.
I gave a free-standing tub serious consideration, but at the end of the day an alcove tub saves money, space, and time (tiling around the tub plumbing didn’t excite me). I wanted a tub that didn’t have the odd wavy indents on the side. You know the ones I mean? Fortunately, I found this MAAX alcove tub from Lowes that has a clean straight-down side.
The wall mounted faucet and tub are here on site and the plumber is scheduled to install them on Monday! He actually came a week ago before our trip, but said he needed more supplies because he had to cut a hole in our ceiling downstairs.. awesome. Now our tub is just sitting in the middle of the bathroom, very much in the way.
Oh well. C’est la vie. Just a few more days of living like this.
On to the good stuff! Look at the pretty things that have been delivered:
I’m very happy with them, which is unexpected because normally I have to buy and return things a few times before I land on the right one! Next week I plan on showing off a finished vanity area and a near finished alcove bath area. I have a lot of tiling to do. Below is the remaining to do list. I added a couple of things so it’s actually growing not shrinking!
The Remaining To-Do List
