Thanks for all the birthday well wishes. We had tons of fun. Judging from the fact that Kristin and Meg didn't leave my place until 3am (on a school night!) I'd say they had fun too. The tattoo and the camera are both in the works this week and both will get their own posts as they happen.
On to this week's excitement.
One of the last house projects we have on The List is the bathroom. Remember way back when I mentioned what the horrible people who lived here before us did to the tile? It's finally time to tackle it. Tomorrow morning, 7:30 am the demolishing team arrives. we're at T minus 1 day for a bathroom remodel.
Let's have a tour of our teeny loo. Please be sure to note:
- grotty light switch that was painted a hideous yellow, a really dark blue and finally covered with white before being half scraped off.
- the interior colour of the built-in shelves. Through archaeological evidence we have determined that at some point the entire bathroom was this colour. (Accented with a cobalt blue)
- the defunct ceiling fan (and I use the term loosely) and the ceiling cracks
- the flaking wallpaper on the tiles. Seriously? Who would WALLPAPER OVER TILE? They deserve a punch in the head.
I wish that the tile was in better shape so that we could maintain some of the vintage values of this room, but it's not going to make it. The built-ins will be ripped out, the vanity replaced, the floor tiles changed...I can't wait. I can't say I'm thrilled about not having a shower in the house for 3 weeks, but sneak peeks at the new tile are helping me get me through.
