Bathroom Remodel: Before and After

So we bought this particular house because it has a great neighborhood and it didn't need any work.  Well after living here for 3 days we discovered they had painted the tub and surround with normal paint, want to know what happens when you do that? It peels off!  It wasn't even the special enamel paint, just normal latex paint.  So please if you are trying to sell a house just do it right, I'd still have bought the house, but it would have been an expected repair, not a surprise one.  Or here's a novel idea do it right the first time and be done with it!  Ok I'll get off my soapbox now.  

Anyway we looked into getting it fixed and decided the best bet was to go with bathfitter, done in a day and a permanent fix that I wouldn't have to revisit in a few years. Now just a heads up they have the longest sales pitch ever, okay not as bad as Hoosier Windows but just about as bad, especially since I knew we already wanted it and just wanted the freaking price.  The lead time is pretty long, we got the ball rolling in August for this project and we actually had it installed early because of a cancellation, it was supposed to be installed in November.  The installers were magnificent, super polite and did an even better job than I had anticipated speaking to the salesman, he truly went above and beyond what was originally planned but it turned out so much better and we love it! They didn't finish up until 10pm after starting at 9ish.  

Nasty peeled tub

yes they had blinds in the shower window

Beautiful tub and new fixutres

There is the whole finished product.  I love that they cut off the window ledge and wrapped the whole window area in the same material and took it up to the ceiling arc in the back.
 I wanted to actually have some color in my house, we've been living in 50 shades of beige for too long and I need color in my life!  So here we go, I'm loving the orange and blue combo.  Now to paint some other rooms and get rid of the yellow beige.  Though I am thankful for the beige because it is easy to paint over and is doable but I do like some color in life.

Oh if you ever get Bathfitter to redo your bathroom, let them know we sent you so I can get some kickback. ;)
