When I rearrange furniture in our home I usually get a lot of grief from DH.
One time he went so far as to walk outside and check to make sure he was at the right house.
But when I came home and found the basement toilet in the laundry room
I wondered about his ideas in home décor.
With the help of Beavis he’d also taken a saw to the walls of the bathroom
and ripped out the floor. Maybe this was a good thing.
It already looked better than the
thirty year-old blue Formica shower and green walls.
New drywall went up. We lightened up the dark walls with a
coat of semi-gloss white, and the tub was re-plumbed for a different faucet.
We had new vinyl flooring installed to replace the old flooring
which had a big burned spot that no one ever owned up to.
We got a new light fixture since we found rotten wires when we removed the old rusty one.
I like how it looks like the guys are doing some kind of dance in this photo.
Then a ceramic saw was set up in my laundry room.
I was really, really upset that I had to suspend all washing and ironing for a few days.
The guy who did such a fine job installing the tile
in our master bath brought back his expertise.
The tile went together like a big puzzle.
In no time at all we had a handsome shower stall.
The new faucet was installed.
The old vanity and paper holder were replaced.
The tile backsplash matched the shower and the medicine cabinet matched the vanity.
A minor slip-up installing the original porcelain fixture
lead to the purchase of a new one which was more efficient anyway.
In our endeavors to lighten the dark basement room
we ended up with almost everything colored copy-paper white.
So I brought in some accent rugs and made curtains to match.
The dark curtains put the room right back in the gloom.
I replaced them with lighter and more sheer curtains. Much better.
Is this not the finest Valentine’s Day present ever?!
