My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
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.
A vanity was added on the closet side of the room. Coordinating wallpaper with a border. although dated now, looked spiffy at the time. A traditional window treatment completed the look and now the second floor boasted two full baths.
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.
