It’s Saturday and apparently nobody reads blogs on Saturday, so you know what? Let’s take a sneak peek at my bathroom. I haven’t done anything with it yet and I probably won’t start until September, but I’m dying to share a glimpse or two or three.

Aside from the toilet and the showerhead, everything in the bathroom is from 1939. Even the vintage Kohler faucet and handles are in pretty good shape! It would be awesome to have the sink sandblasted and powdercoated someday (I did that in Newburgh, and the results were amazing—and extremely durable), but I’m really just glad it hasn’t been epoxy-coated. For now, I mainly need to learn about fitting vintage faucet handles with new washers, because they drip like crazy and that drain opening doesn’t need to get and rustier than it already is.

Happy weekend!!
