The day has come! I have finished the downstairs bathroom (finally) it only took me 5 months...
The wonderful thing is that it turned out even better than I was imagining! The other wonderful thing? I didn't have to buy a SINGLE thing for the entire project! Since the space was so small it wasn't really that hard. The chair rail came from a building my hubby was renovating and didn't want to throw it out- SCORE! It wasn't in the best of shape but it worked perfectly for my little 1/2 bath.
Now, let me tell you how much I LOATH things made in China.
Last night just as we were putting the finishing touches in the bathroom ie. hanging the picture, window and mirror--- we realized that the brackets on the mirror were fastened 1/2 an inch OFF (this is AFTER we mounted the anchors and screws for it!)! I got the mirror as a wedding gift and it hasn't really been hung till now- I thought it matched the bathroom perfectly...
LONG story short we spent over an hour trying to figure out a way to hang it. I won't go into the details but some not so nice things were uttered over that mirror.
BUT, we prevailed no thanks to Yao Chen or whoever hung those brackets.
Without boring you further here is the bathroom! :)
