Up

My upstairs hall bath was original 1975, and it was past time to re-do it. These photos show what I did. The tiling was done by Alin Ratiu, who did an excellent job. The cabinet is made from poplar (legs) and birch plywood. I aimed for a mix of retro and modern, which I think I achieved. I kept the original tub, as it is in good condition.
