Earlier this month, we closed on a new-to-us home here in Texas. The original structure was built in 1953, and then an addition expanded it to 4300 sf in 2000. At some point in the 1980s, an 1100 sf pool cabana was added. And then behind that there is a workshop with this cozy 700 sf one bedroom apartment above it. 

That's a whole lotta total square footage for three folks, but the husband is over the moon about all that space. The structures are situated on 2.5 acres, so I've started thinking of it as our family estate. Good news - a ton of potential. Bad news - it needs updating. This is the most heebie-jeebie inducing part of the entire house, the original pink and maroon bathroom that served the master bedroom across the hall from it. Seriously... hideous is an understatement. It's hard to believe anyone in their right mind back in the fifties thought this was attractive and classy.

I'm hoping the husband can come to terms with the decorator and contractor soon so that this monstrosity will be gutted as part of the demo. I guess it might pass for quaintly vintage on a good day, but I honestly can't wait to see this bathroom taken down to the studs. Give it a healthy swing of the sledgehammer and say good riddance.
