Renovation Continues at Dreams of Yesteryear

We've owned our dream house since 1987 and still the restoration continues. We finally got around to renovating the first floor bathroom. This bathroom while cheerfull and functional looked like the late 1950's-early 1960's. Peach tile on the floor and walls, combined with peach bathtub, sinks and toilet graced the room. Well, no more. On February 26 we embarked on another restoration. The new look includes white subway tile bordered by a sage green vine tile. The tub and shower has been replaced by a custom duo-head shower. The sink and cabinet is being replaced by a two legged wall mount sink. A new toilet, light fixtures, towel bars, etc. will finish the restoration.
All this will be background for a custom bathroom buffet which will use two of the original glass mullioned cabinet doors from the house's original butler's pantry.
This Thursday marks the completion date of this project. I can't wait for you all to see the finished renovation. Just watch our website for the new photos that will be launched to show off this new bathroom. This is the bathroom that is shared by the Gareld's Room and the Maid's Quarters. This new bathroom will be a special treat for those guests.
