Pink Is Evil. (according to my husband)


My husband lived a pink night mare in the master bathroom for 20 years and didn't know what to do with it. Pink tub, pink stool, pink sink, pink tile on the floor and halfway up the walls. All he managed to come up with is to cover the floor with a charcoal gray carpet.
........until I arrived and changed this pink girly dream of a bathroom into something a MAN likes to live with.
the old bath tub. Must have weight 300 pounds because it was cast iron. The little partition on  the end was a puzzle to me. Why would someone put this there?

A soaking corner bath tub. The frame work was put in by a carpenter and the plumbing done by a professional plumber. (Not my metier)

The pink tiles left on the counter top was first treated with new grout and then marbled also with epoxy. The pink sink turned white just like the stool.

And this earned me the nick name Carlangelo ... it's the Zodiac done with rhinestone and glitter over black paint. I tried to paint the stars silver but it looked like hell. So I coated it again and used the Rhinestones instead.

And this is  the Egyptian theme that will go across the entire wall. It's not finished yet. I am working on it. We call this bathroom now our "Wet Tomb" ... or better not say ... lol

A matching seat all the way around the tub and the enclosure painted with the same sponged faux finish.

Last but not least the pink tile was removed from the floor. It has spots where the tile was loose or cracked. Beneath a plywood floor. I sanded this with a belt sander and I'll never use such heavy equipment again, I'll tell you. But after that the floor was done with the same epoxy marbled and framed with tile look faux finish. It's lasting and lasting. This bathroom is now 2 years old.
