Guest Room in Search of a Guest

Deviating from the bathroom tour to show off the guest room. I swear it looks like a Pottery Barn catalog even though there isn't a single thing in the room from that store.

The most intriguing thing is the ceiling fan. It's vintage and it was refurbished by a guy in Louisiana that Rob found on a web forum. It's called a hotel fan because the blades were smaller than a standard fan's, making it more suitable for a small hotel room.

These pics are actually a little bit old. There's a globe on the fan now and the woodwork has been refinished. I'm sorting out curtain rods now, so when that is done, I will post the final look.

We Could Store an Entire Apothocary Here

This is our medicine cabinet, yet to be installed. It will have a mirror on front. The casings and moldings are douglas fir and the same style as the original mill work in the house -- hopefully a seamless blend of old and new.

It's pretty big, so it should give plenty of storage!

Climbing the Walls

The majority of wall space will be covered in a light, sage green tile. It looks white in these photos, but it's not.

The tub will go directly under the window and that nook, on the wall just to the left of the window, will have shelves in it for soap, shampoo, etc.

Getting Warmer...

Floor tile is in.  We chose a classic, white octagon shape. Perfect for a 1909 bungalow.

There is radiant heat embedded in the floor, so no cold feed in the morning.

Raw Walls


So this concrete lined room is on its way to becoming our bathroom.  This is how everything looked once the tile prep was done.  A little prison-like for now, but soon to be cozy and beautiful.

This Happened Today


Demolition started today on the first floor bathroom. Bye-bye too short sink and disgusting tile. Bye-bye.

Putting It All in Perspective

Here is a wide shot, taken from the breakfast nook, that helps put all the pieces into their proper place.

Those are the pantry doors to the left, the main part of the kitchen in the center and the strip of wood on the right is the side of the leaded glass cabinet.

There is a cart that will go into the empty space to the left of the fridge.  It pulls out to give access to the cabinet in the corner and also acts as a floating island so I can have work space on either side of the stove.
