You're doing a real ace of a job there. I thought I had commented about the cabinet earlier, but apparently I didn't hit the submit button hard enough. Anyway, it's way impressive. You must have a really nice work shop setup to produce that kind of quality. I'm green with envy!
The ridge was the result of placing drywall directly over lath and plaster. It was the first thing I looked at when I first saw the room, too...

Glad you like the new vanity. My work shop doubles as a garage, but it's a big garage, so I have enough room to work...

Got more done over the weekend. We spent Saturday putting down the HardiBacker. On Sunday, the drywall guy came over and did the final sand. We primed and painted Sunday evening. I don't have a picture of the final paint, just the beginning of cut-in...We'll see how this color looks after it's all in. Might be too much for the room...

Hey Jeff:
It all looks great to me man. Nice shop, nice job on the bath and even a nice color. Perhaps you could add a nice border or crown mould at the ceiling for an extra appeal.

Good idea Glenn. I think crown molding would be very difficult due to the angles at the wall to ceiling transition (especially the round part). An accent color would probably be easier.

My wife is scraping and sanding the tub today. It's going to get a coat of primer, and then a dark green color on the outside to complement the light green of the walls. Maybe we could stencil a pattern at the top of the wall with that dark green color...

Yeah, I had forgotten stencils. Some Ivy vines would look good up there.

Here's the paint done. I had thought to paint all the way down to the floor in case some future owners wanted to remove the beadboard, but they'd probably be repainting anyway...

LOL...

Yeah, I saw that after I posted the picture and thought: I wonder if somebody's gonna smack me on that

I need to remove the lower sash before I repaint the trim around the window. One of the weight ropes was cut (not sure why) so the window doesn't stay up. We don't really ever open it anyway, but it still bugs me. You can see that we replaced the bottom sash glass with "privacy" glass. This is because there's a rather large building directly across the street that looks directly into that bathroom window (eek!) I'm going to repair the weight, repaint all the trim while the lower sash is our, and in general get the window functional again. I think it would be nice to be able to open the upper sash in the summer for some airflow...

Got some more done over the weekend. We got the marble flooring in and grouted last night. The wife got the tub painted and I installed the claw feet that were re-plated. I need to buff out the inside of the tub and get it to shine. I hope to get the beadboard up this week so we can move the vanity into place this Saturday. That way, we can get the counter top guys in Monday to make a pattern for the top. Again, I forgot the camera, so I'll have to post pics later...

Good progress this last week on the remodel.

Got all the tile in last weekend. Installed enough beadboard to get the vanity installed tonight so we can get the marble shop started on the top.

The beadboard went in pretty well. We've still got quite a bit more to do, but it should go quickly...You can see the joint between the two panels just to the left of the cold water supply on the left sink. I forgot to paint down that line when I painted the trim in place. I'll have to remember to do that tonight.

Let me know what you think. If you have any suggestions, please let me know them as well!
