As we know bathroom rehabs can be mighty expensive. So the bathroom stayed as it was for a while until I decided a little paint and wallpaper would be a cheap fix if I did the work myself. Although blue is not my first color choice, I thought I should pick up the color of the floor tile and incorporate it around the room.
As time went by, I met a neighbor who made his own stained glass windows. He agreed to tutor me and together we created a 3'x3' piece of stained glass. I chose a pattern I thought would be good for a beginner without giving much thought to where I would put it when it was completed.
Then a light bar was added. A stub wall created a partial divide and concealed the plumbing for the new vanity. The tub took a 90 degree turn to end up under the medicine cabinet. This arrangement allowed the toliet to be hidden behind the stub wall and no longer secluded in the water closet. (That closet was destined for greater things which will be revealed in the next post.)
A six armed chandelier with golden pleated shades topped all this drama. The room has survived to this day because it was a very tight squeeze getting the amoire into the room and I don't have plans to reverse that process.
