There's a light in the attic (and in the basement)



Look Maa! I'm blogging! It's a Christmas miiiiiracle!
Ok, so Christmas was weeks ago, I know. But believe it or not, I have been busy. Like rill busy.

We have two bathroom renos going at once. The attic one with the slanty roof line...you know, the one that has shagadelic hot pink carpeting going up the wall? I think I showed you all.


We are not dormering. We are gussying it up with the space that is there. Dats all folks! It'll be "charming." and fun! So here's what we are working with...





...and the basement one, which was sooooooo nasty, but soooooooo nasty, that I couldn't even bare to take "before" photos of it.

I mean, ok, it had a crooked vanity, literally crooked!!!! It was that speckled formica? White with gold chips in it? eww The walls were wallpapered and yellowed. The one piece shower kit was rusted, the shower pan was concrete, and not the cool, industrial looking kind... The bathroom floors were terrazzo... also rusted. It was bad, bad, bad...I see people post pics of their "bad" bathrooms, and I'm just like pfsshhhh....I have a superiority complex about just how bad my bathrooms were. I know, I shouldn't be so competitive about how ugly my house was, but man, that bathroom...I think I used it once. Ok maaaaybe twice. Es verdad amigos!

So without further ado, here's what we've been up to in the basement.







now let's climb the stairs...

here's the before




and now the "during"




Don't ask why there are two toilets.

Stay tuned! I promise I won't fall off the face of the earth again. It's the beginning of the year, and I am wayyyy more motivated than I was toward the end of 2011.


And now let's end this post with some pretty pictures of attic bathrooms....oooooohh, aaaaaaah....
