Here are the BEFORE pictures:
(our MOLD infested bathroom...the culprit...that handicapped seat!!!)
There were *TWO* Layers of flooring...and *TWO* Layers of MOLD under that flooring!
(can you see the flooring buckling?)
The Lovely Brass & Wood Trim!
*THIS* was under the cabinet!!!! YUCK.
EVERYTHING got the "boot"...all the way down to the basement ceiling!
...out the window!
There were MANY MANY trips to Home Depot & Lowes.
(look how cute he is...that was when he used to suck his thumb!)
....and MANY MANY MORE trips to Home Depot.
(all 3 of us felt like this)...DONE!!!
I can't even tell you how many different tiles for the floor & shower that we returned...along with vanity tops, sinks, wrong parts etc. etc. etc.
AND HERE SHE IS!!!!

And there you have it! That is how this BEAUTY came to life...with all of my husbands hard work & sweat! ...it's CRAZY how fast EVERYTHING adds up...I'm not sure how much we ended up spending and we even tried to keep the cost low (out of nessessity) but the cost not listed adds up A LOT like:
-new floor boards
-new light plates
BUT, THANKFULLY we didn't have to pay for the labor or it would have costs THOUSANDS of dollars more! ...Cole was so sweet to help out his daddy!
