Ok…I’m starting a new little series that will take the next several years to complete, because I am on no timeline to get rooms in the house done. But that’s all right; we live here, and have a full life, and decorating the house comes after lots and lots of things.
But, I do love working on projects. And I am so happy to have the main floor bathroom 98% finished! I’ve already gotten the outlet cover for the open one you can see in the picture, and the big open wall is going to get a couple of these stickers put on it, if they aren’t too dark when they get here (if they are too dark, I have another use for them!).
Here are the before pictures, in case you have forgotten:
The after looks this way after the wallpaper was peeled away (approximately 45 minutes of work), the paste was scrubbed off the walls (approximately 297 hours of work), and then the regular priming/painting stuff happened. The only thing that made that interesting was working in a tiny space with a 9′ ceiling, which meant that I needed a ladder and it was difficult to move it around correctly. Matt also changed out the light fixture, which is a vast improvement.
Matt also got this little project finished the same day that he did the bathroom light fixture:
Many thanks to Robin for giving us the fixture…we just picked a shade that looked good and made a huge improvement over what was there.
Up next: the mirror for our bedroom is getting a coat of orange paint on the frame (I’m really pumped about this one) and then I think I’ll probably work on the boys’ bathroom next, since I just ordered a few fun things on etsy to use in there.
