The Tale of The Rearview Mirror

The Tale of The Rearview Mirror

Remember when Amanda took down the giant mirror in her bathroom, framed it, and switched it to another wall?  Lots of people were like “I’m not so sure … a mirror by the tub?  You know what mirrors do, right?”   But back then we could only see a sliver of a sneak peak of the whole room.

Today, we get to see the bathroom makeover in its entirety, big giant tub-reflecting mirror and all.  I predict you will love it.  And I also predict that anyone who sees this and has a corner tub will be taking a sledgehammer to it by the end of the day.  Such a space-hogging monster, that thing!

    Serious question here…

    These tubs (in the after photo) are stunning, but how on earth does one clean under and around those things? I know all too well how grody bathrooms can get (we don’t call the boys’ bathroom the Truck Stop for nothing) and I get the shivers just thinking about what could wind up lurking in the corners of the bathroom.

    I totally agree with taking that big garden tub out there. I hate ours, we never use it, and it is a pain to keep clean. We’d use something like much more.

    Love the use of gray.

    And you say we might want to get rid of the huge space hogger in the corner, but my husband Actually tried to get rid of our claw foot tub so he could install a big corner tub like that. He did Not win that one hehe

    Beautiful! Who has a hot water heater large enough to fill those monsters anyway?

    Haaaa… you comment made me think of how much I hate using the restroom at our dentist office. She has a full length mirror on the back of the bathroom door so when you’re sitting on the… ahem…”throne” you can watch allll your expressions in the mirror. I’ve learned to use the bathroom with my eyes closed.

    Thank you for the feature! I’m so grateful. You always send lots of traffic my way. 🙂 Amanda

    P.S. I’d like to say, for the record, there are NO MIRRORS anywhere near my toilet!

    I used to have an apartment with a giant whirlpool tub and wall-to-wall mirror, aka “the porno tub.” My neighbor said having to watch herself climb in and out of the tub every day was single-handedly responsible for making her lose 20 pounds at Weight Watchers. The mirror is lovely next to the clawfoot tub. Elegant, not porno-tub-like at all!

    Lovely after, and that before is 100% the same bathroom type as the one in Trading Spaces where Hildi stapled fake flowers to the walls. 100%.
