Part 2 The Finished Product
Here are some pictures of the finishing touches to the entry area. The sink area needed to be tiled and this was done at the same time the entry floor tile was installed. The painted area where the sink is going was scraped so that the adhesive would bond.
All the tile pieces were cut and ready for installation.
The area is ready for the sink and moulding to be installed.
I'm prepping the entry area for tile. I will not miss that ugly tile the original owners installed.
Goodbye ugly brownish red tile, hello beautiful new black tile!
The new "sleeping area?" was also tiled. It looks small, but the area is 2 meters long and 1 meter wide.
The sink area with tile and moulding. The intarsia frog on the cabinet was made about 10 years ago out of poplar and cedar. I'm glad it finally found a permanent home. All the area needs is a mirror, light, and a towel rack.
The sink is plumbed and ready to go!
Here's the newly remodeled area under the stairs. Flooring, paint and moulding are installed. The recessed lighting adds a nice touch.
The paint scheme blends in nicely with the rest of the house.
It's hard to believe this used to be the ugliest part of the house.
Here's a photo of the floor lighting. This will come in handy if someone does decides to sleep in this space.
That's it for now. This project took about 3 months to complete. Up next, I will be finishing up the main entry area, kitchen, and utility room. Next year, I'll begin the stairwell and the second and third floor remodel. There's a lot more to come...stay tuned. George
