TA-DA! My new bathroom!

12 days’ of my home turned into a construction site, finding bits of concrete in my bed every night, and concrete dust everywhere (I still have to clean all that up). And a bold floor that is not typical for a Norwegian bathroom. But it is done! Tomorrow morning will be the first weekday morning where I will not greet a tradesman, and I have my spare key back.

The starting point was a bathroom that was probably as old as the building (c. 1971). I have lived with it for 30 years, so it was about time! Here we go, start to finish:

OMG! We’re bringing the colored floor tiles up a bit to lift the eye up, too, by framing the mirror.

Nice work on the window
