Shower is go
Our house came with one bathroom (let's not count the thing in the basement) containing a bathtub. No shower. After living here for 5 months we finally got one installed.
Here's what it looked like when we moved in. There was an ugly sink, ugly toilet, and the cast iron tub was on stilts. There were wooden shelves that had been varnished after installation, leaving drips down the wall.
The toilet was replaced early on; the tub was lowered off its pedestals, but the sink is still there (we're planning a replacement). Took down the shelves, washed the walls (grimy). We patched holes in the walls, put in a new light fixture, and gave the walls and ceiling a new coat of paint. Might be hard to tell, but it's a big improvement.
Best of all, we get to take showers. Even the kids take showers, which is a lot quicker than baths and they like it. The last major thing for this room is to put in a vanity with some cabinets, with a better sink. On the minor side we need towel hooks and rails. And the door needs to be refinished. All in time.
