Even though I grew up in a one bathroom house with 3 brothers and 3 sisters, and know it is doable, I now had the space and, well, why not? As you know from the post about the main bathroom,(the only one at the time) there was a water closet next to that bath. Once a toliet was added to that bath, it was no longer necessary to have access to this one from the hall. Thus began the process of adding another full bath backing up to the main bath.
As you can see from this shot, a wall had divided these two windows. The window on the left was over the toliet in the water closet and the one on the right was at the end of a deep, narrow closet. There were shelves along one wall as you can see by the paint marks. I can't believe these windows were originally divided in this way but guess I will never know the answer to that one.
Then came the idea to change the tile and run it up the wall behind a pedestal sink. The wallpaper lost out as the faux finish bug was in full swing. The walls and ceiling were lightly washed in a pale apricot and the wood trim received a rubbed back distressed green finish that matched the color of the shower.
