As we say goodbye to This Old Bath and her cookie baking Owner, it is time to reflect on the difference we made, before and after. And to focus on details and people that made the difference.
Before and Afters
OK So we broke the soap dish on the install. Now fixed.
Old Shelf New Shelf. Pottery Barn!
Old Curtain Rod. New Curtain Rod. Sans awful post. Wayfair.com.
Old Mosaics we keep, but deep clean and seal with Terraglaze.
Old tub a keeper too even with all its crackle. They just don’t make em like this anymore.
Towel bars and lumpy tilework. New bars and flat tilework.
Tasteful contrast carries thru even in the grout color.
Ceramic GFI Cover Plate. Subwaytile.com. h/t Owner.
People that made the difference and the details happen. Darrin, and the Owner (no pic)
Other notes. We kept the cost down by doing tile over tile. Very little demo and reconstruction. Owner had leaky tile wall, but structurally sound for tile. We applied Kerdi waterproofing by Schluter over the tub and used all cement mortar in the same area. Mastic shown in pic above for areas not over tub.
