You may recall that I've mentioned my parents' were remodeling their bathrooms. Such talk started back in November, but they live in a small town where there is basically only one contractor who you get to do anything, so they got in line behind some pretty big projects and the contruction didn't really get started until about April. Then said "1 month" project turned into a bit longer, so I only got to end up seeing both completed rooms this weekend.
These bathrooms were pretty grody when we bought the house when I was in 3rd grade. Then around 6th grade, they were gutted and remodeled, but the floorplan stayed the same. Style of the "new" bathrooms: Country. Rust & Navy in one, Pink & Baby Blue in the other. I can still see that "country" wallpaper with pink hearts on it that Mom hung in my bathroom that I shared with Dad. Anyway, over the years, Dad received a reprieve from the pink hearts when Mom re-wallpapered his bathroom, and Mom re-wallpapered her's a couple of different times when she got new bedding and painted her cabinets white.
This year the remodel was a little more involved. They decided to lose one of the closets in their bedroom so that the 1950's bathrooms could get a little larger than those mid-20th century folks thought was necessary. The result is really fantastic and not just in the bathrooms, but in Mom & Dad's bedroom too.
