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...
