The Most Beautiful Toilet in the World

The third floor loft was not supposed to be part of the first phase of the beach house remodel, so I haven't really shared much about it here, but that is about to change.  Because last week a wonderful thing happened....

Hello, Beautiful! 


We got a brand new flush toilet in the beach house!  To give you an idea of how momentous this occasion was, here's a refresher of how beach house bathrooms looked when we bought the house.

Bathroom number one:
  • mostly gutted
  • fixtures removed
  • really grody

Bathroom number two:

  • largely gutted
  • toilet and sinks removed
  • vanity removed
  • really grody

Bathroom number three (loft bathroom):

  • really weird layout with lots of wasted space
  • stained vinyl composition tiles
  • tub with rust stains
  • terrible wallpaper
  • two foot tall vanity.  seriously.
  • the world's most disgusting toilet
  • corroded faucets no longer functioned
  • builder grade oak trim

The loft bathroom is not being remodeled at this time, but it will be getting a good scrubbing and a face lift.  For now, it needed to be made functional, with a new toilet and a couple of faucets.  Actually, I think the old toilet was functional, but it was just way to gross to keep.

And remember how I said we're not doing anything (besides the new toilet) to the loft right now?  Well, that changed.

I had quite the surprise on my last trip out to the coast to check progress!

  1. Yay for toilets! I had to look at that picture of the vanity for a minute, I couldn't decide if it was really small or if the ceilings were really high and the other fixtures extra large.

  4. A good, clean, functioning flush toilet can make up for a lot of things, I've found!
