All opposed, say NEIGH!
HOLLLLLYYYYY ILLLLLLLLNNNNESSSSSS YA’LL.  Ugh.  Did you miss me?  I’ve been face down in bed for a few days.  It turns out I have strep. And it turns out that strep is like death climbing into your body and turning it inside out.  I always thought it was like, a really bad sore throat.  Ahaha.  No.  I got a big shot of antibiotics in my behind though, and I’m hoping I’ll feel more like a human soon.  And holy crap, let me tell you, that shot is no joke.  I can still feel it 24 hours later.  Woof.  
Speaking of woof-y things (leave me alone, my brain is overheated) check out this fantastically bad  bathroom. I would describe all of its design sins for you in great detail if I wasn’t already sick.  But Kristen reworked every single element in here to create a master bath that whispers “serene relaxation,” instead of shouting “Somebody actually thought this space-age-porn-star-equestrian-themed-thing was a good idea once!” *sigh* Those were different times. Hear the whole story of this fabulous transformation from Kristen on her blog My Covered Bridge.

Kristen also reports that the huge window next to the toilet was a street-facing window, not to mention the toilet was window-height … AWKward.  By removing the jacuzzi tub they were able to lower the floor, so that little privacy problem is better now!

    You were not joking about the porn-star-equestrian-bubbles-the-clown-brown-weirdness that this bathroom was. Amazingly refreshing makeover!

    Yes, I did miss you and hoped you were OK. Stay well, we need you xx

    The previous owners must have been in good shape to have wanted that many mirrors in a place where you are sometimes naked. I would not want that … ever. EVER.

    Wow, MUCH better after! And I agree…who wants that many mirrors in any room, especially the bathroom.

    Hope you feel better soon!!

    I had Strep 2 weeks ago and thought I might die…seriously. Hope you feel better soon!

    I had strep many years ago and it still ranks as one of the worst sicknesses in my life (I think only the flu beats it). Feeling for you!! It’s awful!

    You poor thing…Strep Throat is the WORST!!! Rest up and get well soon!! The before and after of this bathroom is amazing…who knew such a fabulous space was hiding behind horsey borders and the strangest toilet I’ve ever seen?!?!?

    Get well

    The brown commode looks like a turd colored Millennium Falcon from Star Wars! Right???!!! Nice redo by the way 🙂

    Take it easy! Strep can be deadly you know! Still – love that you can see the humor in it all! Get well soon – but I recommend milking it for all it’s worth before declaring yourself healed!

    I knew you were felling poorly… didn’t know it was that bad! NO FUN!! Hope that shot is working miracles. Being sick sucks.

    Thanks for the pretty bathroom pictures. Like always, it’s much BETTER AFTER =)

  12. April 18, 2012 / 5:47 PM

    SOOOO glad you are feeling better!! I missed you!! Love the bathroom! What a difference.

  13. April 18, 2012 / 6:44 PM

    Yes ~ you were missed. I hope you’re feeling better 🙂

  14. April 18, 2012 / 7:49 PM

    Beautiful!! And I am so sorry you were that sick. I hope you are feeling better today 🙂

  15. April 19, 2012 / 12:36 AM

    Hope you start feeling LOTS better REAL soon! Strep is no fun. Usually bad things come in three, don’t they? Well, you just passed three at a dead run. I think maybe you’re on the second round of three :/ Hope your life settles down a bit this week and returns to some semblance of “normalcy” (which, I grant you, is a subjective state of being. hahaha).

    A bathroom is the last place I would want a wall full of floor-to-ceiling mirrors. In fact, there is NO place I would like such mirrors, but especially not in a place where I would have to be nekkid and all . . . . I have one of those old 1950s bathrooms (minus the charm) with a tiny little mirrored medicine cabinet mounted about 18″ above the sink–it’s the only mirror in the bathroom, and even THAT shows too much of my matronly shoulders for my comfort!

    Feel better soon. Strep is EVIL!
