The answer to the $10,000 question about our bathroom remodeling progress is: slow, very slow. We have been taking our time picking out the paint and other finishes, and we also slipped in a vacation along the way. It's all good though, because things are on the move again.
I finished caulking and painting all of the floor trim yesterday. Not a fun job, but so worth it! The walls are all prepped and ready for painting, so I am shooting to get that done in the next few days. After that, things are going to slow down a bit, as I had a "brainstorm" about what to do with the linen closet in the room and that is going to take some time to complete. We also are installing farmhouse trim around the linen closet and the window. Oy! It's always something!
I found this really cute vintage washboard at my local antique mall and I am considering using it as art in the bathroom. I just love the graphics on it, especially the side with the chicken on it. For some reason, the "Top Notch" just cracks me up!
Here's a peek of some of the things I purchased with my $100 Wal-Mart gift card that I received from my employers as a Christmas gift. I thought it would be fun to see how far I could stretch that hundred bucks and if I could find things that don't look like they came from Wal-Mart. The silver plated items are headed for a spray coat of oil rubbed bronze paint. I am very pleased with all that I found and I can't wait to reveal how they look in the finished room. Even the braided rug will be used - it's indoor/outdoor so it can withstand all of the water.
I'm hoping to use this Billy Jacobs print in the room (mine is in a different style frame), but we will have to see. I am trying to keep this room very simple, so not everything will make the cut. I am obsessed with all things Billy Jacobs lately.
As you can see, our bathroom re-do is currently more dreams that reality - but I promise you it is getting there! My target finish date is the end of this month. Fingers crossed!
