Bathroom Design

I've picked up a stomach virus or some other nasty crud that has pretty much kept me in the bathroom for the last three days.  Worked half the day Tuesday, not at all Wednesday, and half the day today.  I thought things were calming down this evening and took Jumble Mash and BF to Outback for supper.

As always, I enjoyed spending a little time with them...it never seems to be enough.  JM and I got into a disagreement about who would win a fight between John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.  I tried to explain that they would never fight because they are both good guys.  But since JM just can't leave the universe in a state of harmony, she says she's going to do a poll on her blog.  I tried my best to give her the benefit of my wisdom :-)


Since I have spent so much time in the Throne Room over the last couple of days, I put it to good use.  I'm going to remodel.  I have a large Jacuzzi in my bathroom that I'm going to replace with a claw foot tub

and replace my shower with a 5 foot stand alone shower...cause I'm "big boned" :-)  And I'm going to build a bookshelf between the toilet and the shower with a reading light over the Throne...cause a mind is a terrible thing to waste!

Haven't decided on flooring but I'll let you know when I do.

Well....gotta run (pun intended) the Throne is calling.

@KBF...The one I'm going to remodel is the Master Bath...I have another full and a half bath to get me through the tough times :-)

Feel better, Love the remodeling plans.

Doria said...

Hmmm thats a tough call, I know they are both good guys, I think john wayne would totally win tho... I love the claw feet tubs, awesome ideas for the bathroom.

ib said...

Tough call. I would lean more towards Mr. Wayne because old dudes are crotchety and they fight dirty.

I could have made it through my night just fine, not having been updated on your plumbing issues.

bruce said...

i agree they would not fight...

Jax said...

Hope you feel better and good luck with that remodel.

The Empress said...

Great plans for the bathroom redesign, especially the claw foot tub. ...I concur that Clint and John Wayne would never fight, not even in an alternate universe (sorry JM). ...Hope you feel better soon!

caterpillar said...

Hope you're feeling better...and seems like you've got a loooott of ideas for the Throne Room...

Jess said...

Hope you feel better soon.

I love clawfoot tubs! Have fun remodeling. I love projects like that.

P.S. My money would be on John Wayne.

love the bathroom plans. i adore claw-foot tubs. don't have one; never did - but would have loved to have on.

john wayne is my hero...

Bubbles said...

Are you going to do all the work yourself? Its great you've decided to get all posh and get a stand alone bath, I think they are great but the bathrooms in England 'normal' houses are tiny.

G said...

hope you're feeling better soon...good luck with the re-design :)

Mynx said...

bigger tiles = less grout. Just saying.
Oh and make certain there is a place close to the bath to put your glass of wine and scented candles...or beer and big screen TV. whatever

1. Make sure the clawfoot tub fits through the doorway before you try to bring it in.

2. Hope you feel better soon. :-)

3. Bruce Lee wins every time. Every. Time.

Miss Vicki said...

Awesome re-modelling idea...like Mynx said, don't forget to a place for all the little extras :)

Nice plan on your bathroom design! The bookshelf is kinda helpful, especially when the "throne" calls and makes you stay there for a longer time. LOL! Btw, why are you putting away your Jacuzzi for a claw foot tub? You should put your Jacuzzi in another bathroom. Hmm.
