Roundabout San Diego

with Beverley and Alex

Hallway Bathroom - Before/After
I have been wanting to post the before and after photos for so long and couldn't wait any longer. We have so little left to do - put up the trim around the window and then paint that and the door trim, and that's it.

After 6 months of renovation we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Alex did an amazing job, learning from Diana as he worked. Unfortunately, Diana went off to be a truck driver and left Alex to teach himself to cut and lay tile on the floor and around the tub surround. My contribution to all this was to help in the demolition and to paint all the new walls and ceiling.

So here are the before and after photos. It's gone from hideous lime green, gold yellow, burgundy colors to a cool and calming sage green walls, grey tiling around the tub, and black floors. Absolutely fabulous!

And look at this! No more floor cracks. We took everything down to the floor joists and hope the crack will not return.

The before and after shots are impressive. However, how are we to know that this is not just a cheap make-over -- slap on some new tiles and a coat of paint. We reader/viewers demand to know that this was a quality job -- something that won't have the cracks showing up again in a few months. So let's see the photos of the prep work that was done. Do they exist?

The problem that BM has with the new soothing colors is that they invite extended stays in the room; perhaps even a snooze on the toilet.
