I love that quote. So my house is coming along, its just taking time as my budget is sparse.
First of all, I don't think the bathroom had ever been cleaned before we got there. It was this near marigold yellow, and the bathtub was badly in need of resurfacing.
I'm no where near finished, but three coats of paint, new border, some hand cut accentsfor the cabinets and a new shower curtain later, we're about half done.
Next, I'm going to resurface the bathtub, rewax the toilet, paint the floor, and custom paint the tiles. Hopefully, in the end it will look much better.
