Bathroom Remodel Complete

Our house is an old 1950’s farmhouse. This bathroom and our bedroom were added sometime after 1950 and before we bought it in 2004. In 2011, we made the bedroom look original to the house and now it’s the bathroom’s turn.

Originally the cabin bed was freestanding, however with major modifications to the interior and back I converted it into a fitted cabin bed unit.
