Moving on from the bathroom, here you can see that I have extended the tilework into the hall in front of the bathroom.
While I don't have "before" photos like I did with the bathroom, some of the people who read this blog have actually been to my house and they know what a beating it took during the years I raised my four kids. This is a real improvement. The bathroom door is new, as are the closet doors. All new trim and molding and even the heater baseboard is new. The side door is original and needs to be replaced but good outside doors are expensive as I discovered when I replaced the front door recently. Besides, it's 20 and snowing out so I'll wait for warmer weather. For now we've just repainted it and it looks better.
We also put in a new light fixture shown here.
I also repainted the closet, put down a new floor, and rearranged the shelving.
This closet is the main staging area for Soldier's Angels stuff that goes to Iraq
Now it's on to the front entryway...
