So close, I can almost taste it.  Ceiling, shelves next to sink to balance out the retro (!) mirror and a small door to the sump pump.

All the things.

I also added a few things back in November.

  1. Back Gate –¬†The back gate is up….but I have no pics for you ūüė¶ ¬†fail
  2. Furniture placement in the basement – the fireplace is here!

Dave flies home later today and we will be hammering out as much of the basement bathroom as we can and laying out our plans for 2017.  I will have our list ready for you next week!

Enjoy your weekend Peeps.

 

 

Bathroom Update

Which bathroom?  Is that the question you are thinking in your head?  How about both bathrooms?! Hells yeah.

Basement bathroom has seen the needle move the most. ¬†As I said in my Instagram post, this pic makes me feel like we have taken several steps backward. ¬†It is a positive thing though….we are prepping for tile.

We are prepping for tile on our landing as well.  Check out that retro linoleum:

I can’t make it around the corner for a pic of the bathroom but here is the landing:

Such a good look for you 1970’s house.

Looking in from that door

I am eagerly anticipating the grout being completed and the laundry (!) getting hooked back up.

Upstairs Recap:

I have been planning this bathroom for AGES. (read years)

***Chris H – did you see that I took your advice??

Future plan for this bathroom –

  • finish painting the walls blue
  • floor tile (same as basement and landings)
  • new tub insert
  • price out tile for the shower portion (may be a full insert, may be just a tub)
  • install white toilet
  • install white vanity
  • new trim
  • evaluate the art

More pics to come as we complete each project!  Happy New Year Peeps.

 

Basement Bathroom Update

We have been slowly working on this bathroom in between Dave’s work trips. ¬†A lot has gotten done, but we still have a bit to do.

This pic is right after the shower was installed.  months ago

Our next move was to build a niche for the toilet behind the shower.  Drywall РARG.  No fun.  Dave was very dusty for a few days.

 

We are currently working on getting the cedar planks up on the ceiling. ¬†Reminder: ¬†We put the same planks on the ceiling in the Master bathroom. ¬†and we are planning on the same ceiling in the Guest Bathroom upstairs…..say what??? ¬†continuity….I know, I am getting all crazy in here.

Since we are working an inch at a time, I have decided to distract myself with an art search.  I would like something to hang above the toilet.  What should it be?

I am all over the board with this (as always).  A few years ago I was given an Antler Toilet paper holder (you can barely see it in the double toilet picture up above), so I would at least like to make it somewhat make sense.

I also like almost everything made by GrittyCityGoods.  They are responsible for the piece in my Master Bathroom.

I have always wanted to try my hand at a graffiti style spray paint piece.

What should I do people?????
