Begatting the Powder Room

A few weeks ago Lauren told me she wanted to Begats the powder room. The powder room is on the first floor of our house and is used mostly by the kids and also by any guests or company we may have over. After being in the house for almost four years, 80% of the house has been renovated, re-done or begats some how. The powder room definitely needed a change.
As with all of make-over projects I get to do all of the dirty demolition work. I removed the old sink, tore off the old paneling and scraped the old linoleum floor, exposing the Asbestos tiles underneath which we did not remove.

 I got to use tools like a bucket, an iron, a scraper and a towel.


Once all of surfaces were exposed we laid down a new floor using self adhesive vinyl tiles.


After the floor was done Lauren went to work. My wife does all the fine tuning and decorative work. She got to use tools like, a level, a brad nail gun, liquid nails and a caulk gun, a mitre saw, paint rollers and other cool gadgets. Our neighbor and friend, Nelson, helped us with the plumbing on a new pedestal sink (if you are local to me and you need an HVAC guy email me and I will give you Nelson's phone number). I installed a new light fixture and Lauren finished the room with her decorative touches.
 I think the best part of the room is the light fixture, which is not pictured here because it is too awesome to show. I think Lauren did a nice job with the overall makeover.
She went with  a French/Paris theme for the decorations. Why French/Paris? Because it is the room you use to Oui-Oui.
