Question

Bathroom Reno


Completed the project today! I want to post photos but I think my renovation skills are better than my file attachment skills. Can anyone help? I uploaded the pix to Picasa.

This is the advise a poster gave out on this forum in answer to the same question as yours:


upload them to a free photo hosting service, like www.photobucket.com.

each photo has a unique URL address, it will look something like this:
http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b2...blow/house.jpg

just select and copy the link, come back to your post here, and click on the yellow "insert image" button above, the yellow one with the mountain...

You are so kind


The situation that I encountered when trying to download earlier was that my files exceeded the size allowed by this site. I did everything I knew to save them as a smaller file

I don't know if this will help in your circumstances, but, if you use the Photo Bucket site, there is an option to choose the 'size' of the pic...when it is posted....You can then 'shrink' it down....

Keep in mind that this was not a demolition and replacement project. Except for changing out the fixtures and upgrading the plumbing, this was mostly all cosmetic. This is the vanity that I re-stained and poly-coated. Cultured marble counter was re-done in a polymer granite look-alike. New fixtures are all brushed nickle.

We had the shower re-done at the same time and I replaced all the plumbing fixtures and trim. The space-saving cabinet is new and inexpensive.


The old mirror had damage on the bottom and we had it cut off to fit in the clearance bin burl oak frame.
The faux painted walls are not as pink as it looks in the image. They are more terra cotta adobe colored. Replaced the lighting fixture, also.

You can see the molding I added at the top of the wall. I'm a cheapskate and used baseboard molding, turned it upside down and installed the flat side to the wall. This was my first project and I want to thank everyone who contributed ideas and solutions. Starting next project tomorrow

Great job. Well done.

I like the way you think (outside the box), with the molding.
Nice idea.


And yes Atlantic, you are a great help and encouragement to all us DIYers.

What project are you starting next?

My next project will be something simple, like painting a guest bedroom

I am seriously considering doing the molding thing again, except drop it down on the wall about 4" and bring the ceiling color down onto the wall.

Your thoughts?

I love that idea.

It would make the molding look wider and more "grand."

Great idea.
I may steal your idea one day.

Yummy, you can HAVE the idea

I'll post the result maybe next week. Got a great deal on some pre-primed MDF molding that I think will work just fine LOL.

I look forward to seeing your pictures.

(Soon I will show off my pics of the framing of my basement.)
If I can figure out how to post them.
