Bathroom Reno Update (Again)

Hullo again... another report on the bathroom updates! Well, after having waited for all the paint to dry - which is a beary boring process, let me say... Today we started to put things back together again... The plate covers went back on... This photo also gives a fairly good view of the Cloud of Volcanic Ash paint colour...

The knobs went on the cabinet doors - they turned out beary well I think!

And Mama broke out her brand new brad-nailer... It was super noisy while the compressor was fillin the air tank but...

It made putting up the window trim sooooo much easier!! Hmm... I think we need a flash for this photo!

There we go!!! I suggested that they go sort of a shaker-style window trim - saw some pics on the internet - and it turned out beary well.

The mirror is also going to get a frame around it...

And there you go... a new light fixture as well! We had it pointing down initially (cause it could go that way too), but decided to point it upwards - looks more elegant. What light was there before... let me see....

Something like this... except it had 6 bulbs. It was sooooooooooooooooo ugly!

  1. Looking great Sandy! We agree on the light fixture replacement--luckily you were probably shopping and helped to pick it out! You have good taste!

    1. Oh yes, I was definitely on that shopping trip! I don't understand the fascination with brass in the 70s and 80s...

  2. Your former owners were brass-a-holics.

    1. Do you think?? I should show you some of the other lights in the house. Sigh... dragging a house from the 70s to the 10's is quite a process!

  3. Your old light fixture is my mom's current bathroom light fixture. Could you come and do a renovation for it also? We can pay you in honey.

    1. Oh joy!!! Too bad I can't ship you the globe CFL lights that we had in there... I don't know that I'll be getting to the East Coast anytime soon... too bad - that sounds like an easy way to make lots of honey!

    2. My roommates condo has the same brass fixture except in chrome. It's not the most stylish fixture in the world (note: condo was built in 72, maybe that was stylish then but not now). Once you change out Ajdin's mom's fixture can you do ours?
