Show Us Your Life Friday's - Bathrooms

It's another round of "Show Us Your Life Friday" over at Kelly's Korner.  I didn't miss it last week but rather she interrupted the schedule to do a special version of Show us your life and let people show off their Etsy stores.  I don't have one so I didn't post :-)

This week, we are showing off our bathrooms.  In March we started a small bathroom remodel out of necessity.  Our bathtub had a crack in it when we bought the house 7 years ago (we did not know it until we used the shower the first time).  We used some bathroom tape to seal it and it worked . .. for awhile.  Eventually though, the crack got bigger so the tub had to be replaced and thus, the remodel.  There are a few minor projects left to do but most of it is done :-)

This is the view from the bathroom door.  The cabinet is the only storage on the main floor of the house outside of the bedroom closets so I use it to its full potential and have gotten creative :-)  The long cabinet is our coat closet!!

This is the first corner in the bathroom.  I LOVE my stripe!!  The colors are so relaxing :- )

This is the view standing next to the cabinets looking down the length of the bathroom.  (And yes, that is a little blond head you see!) Someday, we will replace the single sink with a double sink which will be great since this is the only bathroom in the house!  And just an FYI, the chair is for our little guy to stand on while brushing his teeth. 

Here's my wonderful shower curtain - I LOVE it!  And I didn't really want a full view of the toilet but you can see where it is :- )

And the view from the other end of the bathroom looking towards the cabinet.  I really like my light fixtures too! 

Finally, my favorite picture :-)  Doesn't it speak volumes? I always get comments on this and it is actually just the front of a greeting card!

 So, what's left?  I have to do a bunch of touch-up painting, replace the door handle, put the stripe between the dining room floor and the bathroom floor and finish the floor in front of the tub.  I'm hoping to get that done by the end of the year so I can start on another project :-)

If you live in a small condo with only one small bathroom you will want a vanity sink with a little counter space and room for storage.
Thanks,
