Last week, while my son and his family were out of town, we planned a little surprise bathroom remodel for them. In the week they were gone, we completely gutted their old bathroom and retiled and repainted it, along with putting in a new tub, sink and toilet. My son and daughter-in-law were so excited and so pleased with how it all turned out. My daughter-in-law told me it makes her happy every time she walks down the hall and sees it. She said yesterday, while the kids were in the bath, she sat on the floor and read a magazine and somehow it felt like such a treat. What she said was the very best of all was having all the work done without having to live through the dust, the plastic sheeting, workers coming and going, etc. with the kids at home. In her opinion, it was the very best of surprises!
We are very lucky to know one of the most handy craftsman around. In addition to all this amazing work and long hours (remember, he did all this before they got back from vacation), he has even taken my old pantry door and is cutting it down to fit their bathroom. If you need someone, we couldn't recommend him enough.
We bought this piece from Sage a while back and had used it at Palatte. We had it for sale at our Garden Sale in March 2009, but no one seemed to see its potential. So, we finally gave this amazing little piece a happy home. We cleaned it up, put in clouded glass and sunk this bowl sink into it (ok, so the sink hasn't actually been sunk in yet... you try and remodel a whole bathroom in under a week). What do you think?
So, what do you think? Do you like the finished product?
Would you enjoy this kind of surprise or would it make you crazy not to be in charge?
