A new bathroom!

So excited!  Our bathroom has needed a remodel since day 1.  But when the mold under the linoleum started that's when we knew we probably shouldn't wait any longer.  Ross tore out our bathroom back in May? April? can't remember. When they had a city-wide trash pick-up.  He just piled it all on the curb and they picked it up for free-- which was great except then we had a bathroom that was an empty shell for a long time.  Ross worked on it every available weekend he had, and the in the last couple of weeks has spent every available minute he had getting it done.  

He ripped mostly everything down to the studs, re-wired the light fixtures, added a new light to the shower, tiled the entire shower and floor, BUILT the whole vanity from scratch, added a new storage cabinet in the wall above the sink, installed all the sink plumbing, re-seated the toilet... And did all the other odds and ends that make up a finished bathroom.  My small contribution was painting the walls. He is pretty dang awesome!  

I still need to pick out a shower curtain and do a few things here and there, but other than that we have a fully functional bathroom! Yay!

I love it! The tile on the floor is what we are using on our backsplash. What color grout did you go with on that? Looks really, really great!
