Removed old bathtub to make room for the new claw foot tub.
Claw foot tub that my friend gave me that started this mess. New Pocket doors for the closets (right and let) of tub, tile, and baseboard.
Before pictures of the outdated sinks, lights, and wallpaper.
Looking out of the shower in to the bathroom: clawfoot tub, closet, watercloset, bathroom entry door, and sinks.

This remolded / updated bathroom started with the claw foot tub that my friend gave me. The claw foot tub was bigger than the old tub, so I had to redsign the bathroom (this is my house) in order to install the claw foot tub.

To make room for the new tub the closets were designed using pocket doors. The old closet doors opened into the bathroom and were set at a 45 degree angle. Light sensors were added as well as closet organization systems (both closets: right and left of tub).

From there a redesign of the shower was in order (scope creep) which required opeing a wall, installing title, plumbling, exhaust fan, glass wall and door for the shower.

And finally, new bathroom sinks, faucets, cabinet, wicker baskets (bottom of cabinet), lights, mirror, and other decorative items that my wife just needed. :)
