    The MAN\'s bathroom! What happens when given total control

    I was given total creative control over the 1/2bath! The one that everyone usually uses and the one we get cleaned up in after working out in the garage. It use to be light green with alot of birds and FOO FOO GIRLY stuff. I kept saying I didn't like it and it needed to change, SO the folks told me to "FIX-IT UP". Only constrants was I couldn't paint the wood or tile.

    $6 can of GLOSS red paint (none of the semi gloss stuff!) /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    $10 worth of hot wheels /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    $6 can of hammer'd paint for the candle holders and mirror
    $14.88 for the wall paper border
    $12 for the material for the curtians which mom sewed up
    $8 for the rod and clips for the curtains (the wrench was a left over, cut in half and extended to 40")
    $9 for black towels


    SO here's the MAN's bathroom

    If My wife let Me have My way (when hell freezes over) I would gut the bathroom to the stud walls poor a concreat floor slap up some tin sheeting on the walls cover the window with some expanded metal mount a urinal on one end and a sh!tter on the other. For clean up there would ba a garden hose to wash it all down the drain in the middle of the floor /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    It's not a real man's bathroom until the toilet only takes one flush to clear everything, and I do mean everything.......................

    is it a Toto? Toto has one out that is said to take a barbie doll no problem. biggest thing we ever tried was a pop can that had been smashed. took it no problem, couldnt get anyone to donate a barbie doll though. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    BTW, i used to work in a plumbing supply house, and we had one mounted on a display rack that was fully functional. flushed a LOT of stuff though that one. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    thats a std 7/8"-13/16" open end wrench I cut in half and welded in a 1/2" steel rod then used the flap wheel to round the edges, the ran it over the rod to shine it up (the wrench was kind of anidized black and the rod looked galvinized or aluminum coated to keep it from rusting.) /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif

    Its a hobart, The house was built in 1957 so I'm guessing thats when the toilet was put in (we put a new dounut gasket in several year back with the new floors), the main (full) bath got a new grey low flow and it DOES-NOT SUCK /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Nice bathroom!
