I have no idea why they knew that or what made them tell us about it before we even closed on the house...maybe because Boozy Susie took out the plumbing for no good reason and they couldn't believe it? Since we were never able to find any traces of plumbing, I started referring to it as the 'not bathroom.'
To be fair, it usually looked like this:I realize I have a problem with organization. Anyway, we are lucky enough to have the original blueprints for the house, and it appears that this 4' x 5' space used to have a sink....and a closet rod.
Not sure what was popular in the 30's, maybe they liked to splash their armpits quickly before getting dressed? Either way, it doesn't appear that it was ever a two piece washroom, let alone a full one. While I would've loved a half bath attached to the master, we decided to leave it as a closet to avoid an expensive 'can of worms.' It had some laminate floors, not sure if it used to be tile back then? This room also has drywall while the rest of the house is plaster, so something happened in here.
We pulled out the laminate in anticipation of our floor guy adding new red oak to match the bedroom.
And this is what I saw when I got home from work a few Thursdays ago....
The transition turned out beautiful! It looks like it was always there.
Of course, I already have a bunch of junk back in there.
Now I just have to:
Replace the boob light with a DIY chandelier (hope that project is happening soon)
Paint the ceiling
Paint the walls Behr Aqua Smoke to match bedroom
Add base and shoe trim
Paint all trim and window/shutter
Research, purchase, install closet system. Any suggestions?
