I decided to do it right & do it once. This was going to become the bathroom I always wanted.
Next step was green board & new plumbing...and finally, my subway tile.
I wanted something different, so I went with a charcoal grout
The original escutcheon had been painted a dozen times. Now it's a simple white with "Standard" stamped onto it! I still need to get nicer handles. These came with the new guts & I hate them.
Anywho...the rest of the damaged walls came down including under the window so I could add some beefy insulation!
While all this was going on, I was working on the really FUN part...finding all my vintage fixtures! I kept only the tub & toilet...
Next...Ebay & Craigslist finds...
