Trip down memory lane

The house remodeling/renovation is really overwhelming me this week so I was looking at old pictures to make myself feel better. We really have come a long way. Maybe that knowledge will re-energize me. The main level bathroom before, during and just after renovation in late 2005/early 2006 (I couldn't resist adding pictures of Haley - she was so little then!):
While I love grey and black and white - this tile was actually PLASTIC. We were just going to replace it with white tile and replace the flooring but once we got the tile off you can see that we had much more than mere cosmetic problems.
We ended up having to replace walls and the ceiling, we tore out an incredibly overbuilt linen closet and added that space to our room, added beadboard and moldings to the walls, retiled the shower enclosure up to the ceiling, added a new pedestal sink, tiled the floor, tore out the mirrored medicene cabinet and light fixtures, added new outlets, added an exhaust fan, replaced the faucets (and all other hardware) and painted. The only things that ended up being saved were the tub, toilet and window trim. What a huge project!!
My camera is at my MIL's but I'll take more "after" pictures when it returns. These "after"s don't really show anything.
