We've already established the fact that Jerry loved a dark wood and used it every where! The bathroom is of course no exception as the pictures will show! Unfortunately, I don't have original before pictures of the bathroom because as I recall it was one of the first places I started painting the wood! Since you know what the kitchen looked like, I'm sure you'll have no problem picturing everything that I painted white, as dark stained wood. Please take notice also to how dark the floor is!
Yes, Jerry encased the bath tub in dark stained wood??? Which of course I painted white! I lived with it this way for a few years and then the tub started leaking and I knew it was time for demo!
Yes, Jerry put dark stained wood on the ceiling above the bath tub?? WTF Jerry???This is an exciting day for me here..DEMO day!!
Dry wall and plumbing provided by my then boyfriend and faithful side kick Art. Looking back at all the "projects" I dragged him into and made him do with me, I realize...he must have really loved me or perhaps he just liked me bossing him around?? Either way, it was a win-win for me!
4 days, 4 trips to Lowes, and $600 dollars later... a new tub surround!! I would also like to point out that this is the first time I tiled!! I kick ass if I do say so myself. :) I think Art and I had a fight that night about who got to take a shower first.... I won :)
A year later...after I saved more money, I did the floor!!
Another exciting day...goodbye ugly floor...DEMO day! I remember Art had no idea I was gonna do this and he came home from work to find the floor missing. Once again, I will insert...he must have really loved me?? The poor guy. I can't tell you how many times he would come home to find me destroying something and then he would just start laughing his ass off at me. Then I would say...what aren't you gonna help me?? I wonder how he lasted in a relationship with me for 6 years?? I can't believe he didn't kill me??
$400 bucks later and so much better!!!
And because it's only fair....Art my faithful side kick!
Girls, he's single and handy! I can hook you up!
And just so you all know, it wasn't always about me...I helped Art with his projects too...
Like for instance...I reupholstered the interior of his 53 Ford for him...because I rock like that! And yes, Art and I are still good friends...even though we aren't together anymore.
