It’s that time of the week again – Show us where you live Friday – and I’m on time! Early, in fact, as I’m writing this on Thursday night! You, my dear blog friend, won’t be reading this until Friday or some other time you feel like checking out the blog. (So, thank you, in advance for at least visiting me!)
This week’s room is the bathroom. We have two and they could use a lot of work. They’re relatively small and include a lot of painted-over wallpaper. Thanks, former homeowners!
The main bathroom (off of our hallway) doesn’t quite need as much work. Keep in mind, the rooms are small, so photographing them is less than ideal. A shot from the hallway:
The walls are a beige color, painted over blue and white wallpaper. This spot was left unpainted because the previous homeowners had a hairdryer hanging on the wall.
I opened our shower curtain slightly, to show you the very cool handicap rails we have in our bathtub:
The fancy sink (I write in a sarcastic tone) is really a light blue and white color:
Now, down the hallway and through our room, you’ll find the fanciest of bathrooms. (Again, note the sarcasm.) When we looked at the house, this is the room that revolted us the most. The previous owner had one of those shower chairs in here and nobody had cleaned the shower in I don’t know how long. It has taken us months to get the crud off the floor and we still have yet to get it spotless, like it should be. A lot of Mean Green, Clorox and other gross chemicals have gone into this room. And it’s real colour is a mustard-y yellow-almost-green colour. We are probably going to make do with the shower for now, (as we have spent so much time cleanning it!) but in the future I imagine that we will invest in a shower glass panel to give the dated bathroom a modern spin!
This is the bathroom that has the leaky faucet. We haven’t found a person, or a tool, to take the faucet apart, so we’ll end up having to buy a new sink – and most likely a brand new vanity. It’s ok, though. We hate this bathroom. With a passion. I want to rip down both medicine cabinets, replace with one and replace the sink. In the first bathroom, we want to rip out the wallpaper, paint and put up a new light fixture. (One of the bulbs is missing an attachment and doesn’t even hang properly.) I also want to do a really cool paint job in there. If I get over to my mom’s in the next two days, I’ll take a picture of her bathrooms – they make anyone feel fancy, and she did all of the work herself, so I know it’s possible to really change ours.
We were fortunate enough to receive a ton of bathroom stuff (towels, shower curtain, accessories) as wedding gifts, so we wouldn’t need to splurge on those items. Just the big stuff 🙂
So, there you have it. And on time!
