    Wife's Birthday Present

    Here is one of my wife's birthday presents. Started working on this as soon as she left for work this morning. I took the day off so I could get it all done. She got a complete bathroom make over.

    See, I can do more than scroll and turn.

    Extra shelve space now for soaps/shampoo's



    Note the cabinet. I made that, I've got doors I've scrolled "bubble's" into but I didn't have enough time to finish painting. They will have blue mirrored acrylic glass behind the bubble doors.



    New base board and floor.



    Crown molding and new casing for finishing touch.

    Yep, the tub/shower was already in and the vanity/cabinet. I had been working or the white cabinet for awhile... and painted it last night, along with all the moldings and base board.

    It was just a matter of stripping the old out and then painting the walls and putting the extras and new stuff in.

    Very cool. I'll bet she was surprised when she got home.

    Well, I'm think you need to be smacked. You really messed things up for the future. Now she'll be expecting that sort of quantity of work from every project and will line up the future projects with that in mind.

    Nice job!!
