Bathroom's Done!

Bathroom’s Done!

Well, today I’m officially calling the master bathroom makeover compleat!  I still haven’t put down the threshold,  I’m going to reuse one from the kitchen since we will be busting up that floor in a couple of weeks.  But otherwise, everything is finished, I even scraped the paint from the tiles arround the shower!  There […]
