A work in progress: the Master bath
Here's a peek into my almost done, Master bathroom
The walls came out a bit more pink than I had intended (really was looking for an almost white, with a hint of pink) but perhaps these will soften, as the kitchen did. If not, it's a quart of paint, and at this point, I'm living with it.
The vanity with 5 drawers, 2 deep cupboards with one shelf in each. A new, tall and wide medicine cabinet (still needs the shelves put in). I discovered that someone* made several scratches in my new vanity counter, which I am far from pleased about. I will be discussing this with the contractor.
My custom shower
with the added space of a shower bench. I also found some scratches in this custom marble. Grr . . If you look at the cord from the blow dryer, you can see that the vanity blocks the original opening to the shower. The GC didnt' calculate this so as a result, I am having to get a custom, glass shower door, an expense I was trying to avoid as I intended to reuse the existing shower door. It will be about 3 weeks before it is ready, and then I need to schedule installation with the glass company, who is also helping me with making custom screens for DS's room, as there are no screens remaining in that room.
