I'd originally planned to re-use most of the fixtures already present in the existing upstairs bathroom; they were dirty but functioning and not too old. The water closet is a Kohler, the vanity a standard blue or orange box stock vanity. Armed with paint I went to town:
- removed gobs of old caulk and re-caulked the bath tub
- spray painted the bath tub fixtures a nifty Oil Rubbed Bronze color
- replaced the cheap-o shower head with a rainfall shower head
- spray painted the frame of the mirror cabinet Oil Rubbed Bronze color
- ordered a curved shower rod with liner and hooks (we're going to re-use our existing fabric shower curtain that is pin-striped in blue, taupe, brown and white)
- bought a replacement towel rod
- painted the whole room in "Cloudy Day" grey
- painted the built-in closet white
- painted the trim and the ceiling in Behr Ultra "Pure White"
Today the curved shower rod I ordered from Overstock arrived in the mail which means we're one step closer to a finished bathroom.
Maybe I should drag my steam cleaner out to the ugly Duckling tomorrow and rather than paint some more trim, spent a few hours cleaning this room to within an inch of its life... Well, I better wait until the electrician is done. I don't know how it escaped us but there is NOT. A. SINGLE. OUTLET in this bathroom. Not one. So we're adding one ...and I guess that means I'll have to touch up some paint where they bust through the wall.
