I don’t know why (in my head, anyway) I had to leave our master bathroom untouched until a full renovation made its way to the top of the project list.  A shocking 8.5 years went by before I realized this was a really stupid idea that was just preventing us from enjoying the space we have.  For week 3 of the #30projectsin30days challenge, I focused my attention on giving this sorry excuse for a master bathroom a long-overdue facelift.
