Home Renovations

Mark and I have been to Home Depot and Lowe's alot lately. We are renovating the boys' bathroom from the floor up. The wall tile around the tub, tub, sink and toilet are all a creamy beige color, very popular 20 years ago. The floor tile is old and ugly and we will replace the small floor tiles with 12"x12" Texas Beige tiles. David peeled off the ancient blue striped and lighthouses wall paper in anticipation of painting the walls, probably creamy beige to match the wall tiles around the tub. We hope to have the bathtub refinished in white to match the new toilet. We decided to get a white vanity. We like this one a lot, but we don't have to make a final decision until the floor is tiled. Not sure yet about what sort of vanity top and sink will go in. I think I'll take off the glass shower enclosure and hang up a shower curtain instead. I may make one with a window valance to match. So far we have the walls nearly ready to paint, the old vanity removed, and tiles to lay, and the rest are all plans we need to complete. We might get paint and paint tonight, then tile tomorrow night. The picture shows boxes sitting where the vanity used to be. They contain what used to be held in the vanity.
