Still moving forward.
I’m still struggling a bit to get over the trauma of the plumbers canceling this morning. I realize in the scheme of things it’s not THAT big of a deal, but after spending so many sleep-deprived weekends struggling to get things ready for what was supposed to happen today, it’s a huge letdown. I also wasted a vacation day for this, which is irritating.
In the mean time, here’s where we’re at…
Benjamin Moore Simply White on the paneling and trim (2 coats), Olympus Knight’s Armor on upper walls/trim (3 coats). I am SO HAPPY with how this looks. It’s exactly what I had in mind.
I did an awesome job caulking between the floor tiles and the tub. It took us forever to track down sanded black caulk! FYI, if you need it, Tec makes it.
You see that? It’s a little shelf, PERFECTLY SIZED TO HOLD FOUR ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER. Yeah, it’s pretty much the best thing I’ve ever created in my entire life. I have dreamed of this moment since I was a little girl! These shelves will be covered with fabric doors, and the wood will be stained to match the mirror. I still have to cut the remaining three shelves (which will be used primarily for display) to fit.
There really is still plenty to do in the bathroom even without the plumbing work completed. I’m sure I can fill the next couple of weeks with searching for the perfect toothbrush cup, the perfect Q-Tip jar, the perfect bath mat…and, of course, the perfect trash can.
