20 In Interiors



Bilzen Pictures of my bathroom.  This was the most ambitious renovation project that I have tackled in my house.  I wish I had before pictures.  It had so many leaks, you could literally smell the walls rotting.     We took the entire room down to the studs, and even ripped the ceiling out.  It was a huge mess!

I used soapstone for the new counters, and the walls are plaster.

We made a nice walk in shower where the bathtub used to be.  The bathtub was in the shape of a giant clam shell, and it was only 11 inches off the ground!  You could barely even give your dog a bath in it.

My old garden Buddha found in Austin years ago.

    Hi, Judy

    I’d like to know more about how you did the walls. It looks like unfinished concrete, which is a look I have been thinking about. I want to tear out my shower walls, tile part way up and finish out the top with walls like yours. Any tips would be appreciated.

    Your new studio, your bathroom and your new outside area are all fantastic. It will be hard to leave all that behind but you will create magic wherever you go.

    Thanks, Jean

    It turned out beautiful. It’s such a relief when a previously gross bathroom is re-done.

    Love the subtle texture variations beneath the soft, neutral hues. So relaxing!

    So do we take it that you will not be moving?

    I actually completed this some time ago–so, to answer, we’re still moving.

    I think it’s called plaster. I bought the finish at Home Depot. I’m going to look and see if I have any left out in the garage, then I can give you the name. I used the product a little differently than directed, because I did want the look of concrete. I had a contractor do it–I wish I remembered more!!

    Love the warm gray look and feel. And the stone Buddha just makes is all perfect. Can’t wait to see what you do with a new place:)
