Open for Business!

Well, there are still a couple small things to be done, but for the most part the master bathroom is fully functional! Thank you to John and his dad, Mike they got all the plumbing finished today and it is a fully functioning bathroom. I might just have to take another shower today so I can test it out. Here was the day's progress.

John and Mike plumbed and attached the vanity and toilet, with Jack's supervision of course.

We ran into a couple of minor issues while installing the vanity today, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. First, the vanity we bought only comes with a backsplash...not a sidesplash, and trying to match that marbled top would be near impossible. Our solution? I thought we could use the same accent tile we used in the shower to tile the back and sidesplash. Not my first choice, but the best choice in my mind. This is the end product, thinking it might be a happy mistake afterall.

The second issue was that the plumbing prevents one of the large bottom drawers from closing all the way. Our solution? Notch out the drawer so that the plumbing doesn't have to be re-done. Mike took care of that and it closes perfectly, we have a two inch square missing from the back of the drawer {I call the other one!}.

The {somewhat temporary} shower curtain is hung and we are ready to enjoy our master bath! What's left? I need to buy some storage bins for the vanity shelf area, hang the mirror, and install the towel bars and toilet paper holdler. Other than that, we are good to go! What a wonderful Christmas present, a second bathroom! Check back soon for the "finished" product!
