Ah, the feeling of a (mostly) completed task – I should really better acquaint myself with it.

Give me a few days and a fever of 102, and I can get you results.

Apart from the trim, the fan, the wall plates, the light fixture, the hutch and the toilet (and the quality time spent with a very small detail paintbrush) the bathroom is done. \o/ Ok, there’s a lot that’s not strictly done-done, but it’s usable and it looks nice. I’m calling it a win.

The hallway is still an unmitigated disaster, and is probably eligible for FEMA assistance at this point. That’s going to have to wait, however.

I would first like to thank 3M, for making a truly useless product – the blue painter’s tape. Not only did it not prevent paint from seeping under it, it peeled up a fair amount when I took it off – even when I scored it with a knife. For the extra hours I will spend fixing that fail, 3M, thank you.

Everything else went pretty well. I love the colors, I love the artwork, and I suspect I will love every minute I spend in there, especially once the shelves and/or hutch is in place for more candle goodness.

Here we go with The Photos!

Before:

After:

The choice of shower curtain is probably the most defining feature of the small space, and I’m pretty surprised I picked a blue one. I’m not a huge fan of most blues, but when I saw this one, nestled in amongst the others at the shop, I immediately knew this was The One. That I remember with pretty good clarity. I then spent a more nebulous, fuzzy amount of time in the art section to find accompaniment for it.

Were I a better person, I would have ironed it before I hung it – maybe someday, if it doesn’t relax in the steam.

When I bought these beautiful yet persnickety shower curtain hooks, I wondered, “are these things going to be the bane of my existence?” Perhaps. But they’re pretty enough I do not care. At least, not yet.

I’m not going to shower you with all the fail details, though several are present in these shots. Perhaps another time, because I have more pressing business at hand.

“Are you going to break it in tonight,” asked Mike Neir a moment ago.

“Yup!”

“Right now?” Laughing.

“Yup!”

And so I am.

  1. Your bathroom looks great! I love that blue and brown combo, especially in the shower curtain. Wish I were that productive with a fever of 102!

    I have a bathroom that is ugly beyond belief. The tub and toilets are a weird green. My husband calls it duck poop green…I hope we can redo that ugly duck soon
