A Bathroom Plan

At first glance, the main floor bathroom in our new home looked just fine.  Dated, perhaps, but tolerable.  But, the more we looked at it, the more work we realized it needed.

The beadboard was poorly installed, the toilet is too close to the shower for the shower door to open    fully, and the sticky tile was a lovely shade of puce.  The cabinets on the wall were special, too,as        both were designed to sit on the floor.  In fact, the cabinet on the left is the same cabinet that sits          upstairs in our current main bathroom, but it was a little worse for the wear, with the legs, back, and    drawer removed.                                                                                                                                                                                
Last weekend we removed the beadboard and the cabinets, as well as half of the floor tile.                  Unfortunately, however, we learned the other half of the floor tile has been glued down well.  A little too well.  We will probably have to remove the subfloor to remove the tile well.                                 

 The images above reflect my hopes for the bathroom.  The light, mirror, tile, and vanity are all from   Lowes.  The lovely blue cabinet can be found at Target.  I already own the Amy Butler towels, but   according to the listing on Amazon they appear to be currently unavailable.  The jars are from my     collection.                                                                                                                                               
This bathroom will be the main focus of our next weekend in Minnesota, as at least one fully               operational bathroom is needed before we move into the house, and the upstairs bathroom is a bit        more, um, rustic in its current condition.                                                                                                                                                          

But, at least it has a claw foot tub!
