Mid Century Bath #5

Well sorry it has taken me soooo long to get these posts out. Once the storm broke I was able to make a flying trip home. Had several problems going on which needed my full attention.

Taxes, family in the hospital, responses to advertisements, and the list goes on. Everything has settled down some now, but I’m sure as with life I’ll be converged upon in the near future with more items that a need my immediate attention. plus a few big changes in the future too.

So the bathroom is almost complete. I must say it turned out wonderful.

Here’s a little comparison.

After, the mirror is just temporary in its placement. They will be going for a larger horizontal one with a wood frame.

Before of the awkward tub niche.

This is is after the grout but before new shower hardware is installed. The photo does not do this area justice. These are an Almond 2X4 subway tile. This area isn’t finished yet, but hoping you can get an idea of the transformation. It is a big change in the before so and afters. They seem to love the way it turned out. The next time I’m up there I will shoot the finished photos to share.

Hugs,

Snow Bound and Mid Century Update

So when I came up here to Portland for this design job I had a few other reasons to visit. First of course was the bathroom design, also to see family and friends, do a little thrifting, and salvage. Pick up a gently used new to me car. And to celebrate my Birthday. I’ve done a little of all those things, but would have done more if I hadn’t got caught in a snow and ice storm! So the bathroom design was a several day process working with the clients.

Tried to get places during a terrible storm for supplies during some crazy weather!

Unable to drive due the weather. Have to depend on a SUV ride. But enjoying the peaceful snowfall and beauty too.

So wonderful at dusk the sight of the new fallen snow. However I’m ready for our rain to return. And to be able to drive again!
