Before and After - Day 3

Today, we're going on a little tour of the bathrooms. It's too bad I don't have any great before pictures because they were really bad. Here is the master bath that should give you a good idea, though.
A close-up of the cabinet which is also exactly like the one in the hall bath.
This is the hall bath on the day we were ripping wallpaper. You can't tell from this picture, but there was carpet in here and once we got that up we discovered the toilet had been leaking and all the subfloor around it had to be replaced.
Here is the after.
Nae and his brother and a friend laid the floor which made a huge difference. We're still missing the mirror in here that goes over the sink - it needs to be painted.
Close-up of the hooks that I found at Hobby Lobby. I'm very happy with them especially since they were half off. Hobby Lobby is a great place to find hooks and knobs if you're needing some.
Here's what the cabinets look like now. This was identical to the one in the photo at the top. Isn't it amazing what a little white paint can do? Knobs are coming for the drawers - there have been 3 trips to Home Depot and still we don't have the right size screws.
This connects the hall bath and the girls bathroom. Nae removed the shower door in here and we also had to strip a wall paper border.
Here is the bathroom in the girl's room. I hate that I don't have any before pictures, but just imagine green and white vertical striped wallpaper and the cabinet was a dark green as well.
Again, a little paint makes a big improvement.
I'm not going to show any after pictures of the master bath yet mostly because we need to install a light in there and it's too dark for me to take any pictures. This is going to be the last before and after day until January because tomorrow the December Photo Project starts. I had a lot of fun doing that last year and I'm looking forward to participating once again.
