I won….and a new Shower Enclosure

First I want to say thank you to Jacki for picking my name in her wonderful give-away…I won some beautiful hand made/hand painted salt dough Quilt Tiles. I love the colors in them…beautiful work.  Visit her wonderful blog:  The Olde Primitive Barn

She also included some sweet little salt dough hearts and some wonderfully scented heart melts. I’m leaving them in my kitchen because any movement sends off a beautiful aroma…they are just great. What is the scent called?
THANKS JACKI! I LOVE IT ALL

And now onto our new tub/shower enclosure…I had posted a bit back that we used to have textured/gold rimed shower enclosure several years ago and had it removed when they re-surfaced the tub/sinks/walls…and didn’t want those old grungy things back on.

So now that we are getting ‘old’ we decided rather than always going up stairs when we wanted a shower (in place of a bath now and then) we’d have a new enclosure installed….to the tune of $$$$ it’s in and what a huge difference it makes in the room.  We went the extra $$ to get the frameless and I’m so happy we did.

Now we just need to get those new doors/drawer fronts and then paint the cabinets and we’re good to go again for a few years – saving us many $$$$’s on a remodel.  Well, maybe a new floor too but it’s really very nice yet.

Here’s the before:
Tub no surround

And the after:
Tub with surround

Old View from the mirror:  I think maybe new paper too! lol
