More progress has been made in the master bathroom. The sink faucets were purchased.
I love the high gooseneck style and the fact that it swivels.
Here is what we had.
And here is what we have NOW.
Notice my new soap and toothbrush holder? They arrived too!
So, I have two matching sinks with these faucets and bathroom accessories now.
Next, we bought the shower lever.
The only thing we wanted was the lever (shown in the middle). But, we had to buy it in a package that sold all of these items. I have a hand shower (that I'll share with you in another post) that was installed as well. We had to have a plumber come out and install this for us because our 19 yr old house was set up with old hardware that no longer fits the new hardware sold at stores. A plumber was also needed to cut a hole in the wall from behind the shower (in the toilet room) to gain access to change out our old hardware. Argh! This is quickly becoming a very expensive shower.
Now, we have to paint over the wall panel installed over the hole cut in the wall.
Now, I understand why people gut bathrooms in older homes to renovate them rather than trying to make simple cosmetic changes. Nothing is simple when your house is almost 20 years old!
We are STILL waiting on more quotes for our shower enclosure. We're anxious to get started either way we go with it.
However, there is ONE more big problem that we discovered today after speaking with our plumber.
Well, the faucet will have to stay. We will change out the brass drains. Those are easy. However, we will have to remove this faucet and paint it (like we prepared to do with our shower) in order to save our sanity and our money. Our current set up for the tub is just like our shower and we do not have easy access without quite a bit of construction. I'm so disappointed by this because I was really looking forward to having a beautiful gooseneck faucet with pretty handles right here. Our tub is the first thing you see as you enter the room too.
Can I just tell you how much we dislike the builder that built our home right now???? You would NOT believe how much money we have spent correcting things that he did wrong in this house. It has been problem after problem and we're finding shortcut after shortcut that he took.
Ok, I just had to vent for a moment. Renovation projects cause that sometimes.
I hope you'll stick around for the final reveal after all is finally complete!
Thanks for stopping by!
