Bathroom Progress

The giant ugly cabinet is gone!

Apologies for the long, long pause between posts. I’ll try to get all the progress updates posted over the next couple weeks. First up, the bathroom. It’s almost there. All I have left to do is the window, hang art and  towel racks and possibly get another storage cabinet.

Dang tiny bathroom but it won't all fit in the shot.

It was a lot of work, but the medicine cabinet came out great! I bought new screws, but the rest of the hardware is all original. 

I couldn't find copper screws, so had to settle for brass.

Here’s a reminder of what it looked like before.

I’ve purchased new (antique) windows, but they are going to need to work before installation. The original (cracked) windows were rope and pulley and the newly purchased ones are not. They are also a slightly different size. I need to remove the glass from the frames and have them reframed to work in a rope and pulley system. In the meantime there is a lovely piece of lexan keeping the zombies out of the house at night. When I was having delusions that I’d get this project done quickly, I had just a sheet of plastic stapled to the wall. Zombies can silently cut through plastic without setting off my alarm, so my dad replaced it with non-breakable lexan when he was here visiting at the end of February.

It has green and yellow panels.

Next up either the skirting...or walls in the sewing room...or the deck..or the insulation, or the tree removal. Told you I've been busy!

Always wear protective gear when sanding!
In case you are wondering, yes, that's Captain Hammer on my shirt ... and these are not the hammer.
