After much debating, hemming, and hawing, we broke down and bought a Vipp trash bin for the bathroom. It’s a lovely little thing, beautifully constructed, and (I hope) something that will last us for a very, very long time. Given the thousands of dollars we’ve saved by doing the bulk of the work ourselves, I figure it’s acceptable to splurge on a used Kleenex receptacle. I believe in paying a little too much sometimes in the name of happiness.
No more bathroom photos for now—the plumbers DID come on Monday, but there’s still a lot of work to do. A part for the shower assembly was broken and had to be ordered for replacement, which will happen next week. We also don’t yet have any lighting in the bathroom, and without sufficient daylight hours, I can’t take nice photos. (I also need to sew the shower curtain and finish installing the shelves! Oh, and painting the medicine cabinet…)
