The Bathroom Reclaimed
There are no Before pics of this, the smallest of the 3.5 bathrooms. It had no electricity, rotting vanity, yucky muck and broken glass in it, as well as a shower with a loose door. We wanted to leave it until last to deal with. In the course of having the electrician over he needed to get behind the wall to diagnose the power problems. That's when we discovered a portion of the original wattle and daub wall.
So now we have a vitrine (the old shower door) exposing the illuminated view of said wall, decorated Maya style, with broken pottery (relics from the Museum Company) and local fossil beds, framed by Brazilian Koa wood left over from the floor. The bathroom floor has grey roundels like you find in a gym (or on Craiglist where we got enough to do the whole basement acreage). The rest of the ensemble is choice IKEA, Lowes and Menards.
