I know, it seems I have been lazing around, watching soap operas and eating Bon bons. Nothing seemed to happen for so long, no changes to take pictures of, only boring stuff like plumbing and wiring. But NOW! Look at the this wall!
Look at these door frames! And Doors! These doors are actually different from the original part of the house, but from the same general era. At this point I have to go back to my plans and design from the beginning, and check myself. I am just picking what I like and ignoring the overall design plan. The problem with that is, I like MOST everything. In a warehouse full of old doors, I like them all. When asked what finish for fixtures, I like satin nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, chrome and some brass. Styles? Old fashioned, modern, rustic, sophisticated....yep. I like 'em all.
Now the shower is almost done! I have spent too much money, so the beautiful glass panel will have to wait. I am patient. I will get creative and find a cool way to make a shower curtain look good in the meantime.
The vanity is built! Yes, that is a very modern shower and about as rustic as you can get for the vanity! What the heck is she doing????
Well. There is a plan. I hope I can focus well and long enough to actually execute the plan. The *trend* right now is indeed "modern rustic" and I happen to like it. It speaks to what I have always seen as my split-brain personality. I am a country girl, born and bred. But I love and understand a small amount of sophistication, modernism, if you will. I am aiming at that style, but with a side of Julie, if you please.
The floors are in! I have thought through and made sure that once I tire of that trend it will be easy enough to change. In the far, far future (I hope). So the basic color and style of the permanent things are pretty neutral and plain. The shower has very little "accent" tiles, the floors go well with most any color. And the rest, light fixtures, vanities, paint color can be changed out if and when necessary.
Everything happened in a whirlwind, or so it seemed. Now I have to go clean and paint so they can put it all together.
Of course, then we still have the garage, so can't get too excited yet.
Also, next week my class schedule will TRIPLE. Let's see how we handle a little pressure. We will need the money, since the small bathroom is getting a surprise makeover. The floor was removed to replace plumbing and a partial joist. Rot was found in the walls as well, so....new walls, tile, flooring, and toilet. Yay!
