Our New Bathroom

My husband purchased our home over a year ago. Terry toured it, but I never did. I only saw photos. We could tell from the pictures online that the master bathroom would need some work. Terry’s visit confirmed it. But everything in it worked, so we went ahead and bought the house. Terry said, “We can remodel that bathroom in a year or so.” In my mind, the emphasis was on the words “or so”. I figured that it might be remodeled in five years, possibly ten. Or never. I really didn’t expect it to happen. We have five children, and their needs are a higher priority than a my having a new bathroom.

Well, God is truly amazing. I knew that, but I am reminded of it again every day, especially in December. A man who used to attend the church here offered to remodel our bathroom – for free. I was blown away. I couldn’t believe it. But the week before Christmas, it happened! We have a brand new master bathroom.

The problem was the shower. It was made to be handicapped accessible, but it wasn’t done right. The bottom of the shower held water, unless it was squeegeed out by hand.

Here are some before photos:

This one shows how the water would stand in the bottom. When the workers pulled up this flooring, they discovered the water had gradually been seeping into the wood beneath the shower. It had a terrible odor! I’m so grateful this is now gone!

Now, drum roll please, the AFTER photos:

The new bath tub, which lets the water completely drain out! Yippee!

I love the neutral colors in the tile. I currently have the bathroom decorated in purple, but I may decide to change that someday. There are still a few more things to be done, but the hard part is finished. This blessing is amazing and wonderful and above all that I could ever ask or think, because it was given to me by my Heavenly Father.
