Basement Bathroom Reno - Upstairs Version

I'm going to jump a bit ahead, today. 

You see, we have two bathrooms. Although the basement bathroom is getting a full redo, the upstairs bathroom is getting just some tweaking. 

For the most part, they're doing one at a time, so that we can actually... you know... live in the house. But there are a few things that need to be addressed at the same time. For instance, when the Duct Guy came to put in the downstairs vent, he put in the upstairs one, too. 

When the plumber came to deal with the downstairs shower, he also looked at the upstairs tub and checked our upstairs sink to see what he could do with the old piping when he puts in a new drain stopper. That... umm... went kind of wonky. So now our upstairs sink looks like this: 

Yep. That's a bowl in the sink to catch water so it doesn't go down the drain. Then we pour it into the toilet...
And, today, when the electrician came to rough-in the downstairs outlets, he also did some work upstairs - which we totally expected. 

What we didn't expect was that we'd be spending the next few weeks with this: 

We've gone from a 1980s four-bulb strip to one nice, single compact fluorescent suspended on a few wires. Snazzy, isn't it? 
I just keep telling myself that both bathrooms are going to look great when they're done...
