And Now, the Bathroom Sink
Some time ago regular readers might recall, I decided to redo son Scott’s bathroom. In an old house like this one, circa 1930s, there’s a project around every corner. With this one, I stripped off old wallpaper, patched cracks and a huge hole, applied a textured wallcovering which I painted along with the ceiling. I’ll spare you the details, but it was a time consuming process for me. I used to zip through this kind of work. Not so this time. Anyway, I’m happy with the results as is Scott who now has a pretty nice bathroom for the cost of some paint, wallpaper and sweat(mine). I included the photo of the window to show you the cellular shade I found at Lowe’s for under $10. It’s a vinyl, room-darkening shade that attached with a 3M peel and stick tape. How simple!
I suppose this is a strange topic to post about, but I am always curious to see how people in other parts of the world live. So, to further the international dissemination of trivial information, those of you outside the U.S. can now view a rather plain and simple American bathroom.
