I am CRAZY about trays as you can see from our Boot Tray post, our powder room tray, and the tray beside the stove. I think that a beautiful white porcelain tray not only looks fabulous, but it protects our surfaces. Which is definitely important on granite counters but also important on tile counters because grout is super porous.
We have a large tub 'deck' which is super handy, but it always looked messy because we would (meaning I would, Lee has one bath product beside the tub . . . it's called soap) leave all my bath products around the tub deck. I found this round tray at Superstore and it fit with about 2 cm to spare! It's perfect!!!
I don't have many bath products, a special exfoliating mask (from the dermatologist, I have sensitive skin), an organic skin cleanser made by Boots (found at Target), and some extra soap because getting out of a warm tub to get a new bar of soap sucks!
Oh and of coarse Fresh Flowers . . . I bathe daily beside fresh flowers, me, Oprah and the Queen have so much in common ;) hehe just kidding.
Now a little bit about the bathroom layout and the rest of Master Bath Redo plans.
This half of our bathroom is made up of the TUB and the Shower. The shower is AWESOME, I always thought that a shower bathtub combination was A-Ok but it was before I knew the joy of a separate shower, it's . . . it's just plain awesome. There is so much more room, I know it's not always possible to have a separate shower but if it is I would definitely put one in again.
Now onto something I would never put in again (Note: this was a builder choice NOT ours) a two person TUB! Never again!
First It's a HUGE pain to clean! I have to take off my socks, roll up my pants and clean the tub while standing in it!
(Please excuse the color difference, I'm still figuring out the new camera, the picture on the right is how the tile actually looks ;)
Two it's a HUGE waste of water, I'm a bath person, so to have a bath in this tub by myself is a BIG waste of water. I guess maybe it depends on how much you bathe with your spouse but I definitely wouldn't recommend a two person tub!
So what's left:
-Artwork or something to hang over the tub, maybe a mirror.
-New Towel bars, toilet paper dispenser, and hand towel holder
-Some hooks for wet towels
-New toothbrush holder
-Some Serious cabinet organization
-New light over the mirror and sink
-Maybe a new light fixture above the tub.
-And one day in the far far future I would like to replace our giant mirror with a round multifaceted mirror!!
So that's where we are so far in the Master Bath. I'm hoping to have the rest of it done by MONDAY! But so far I am LOVING the Sharkey Grey wall color, everything looks so much nicer and sparklier against the grey!
