This is part 3 of our Bathroom Remodel. Click here for part 1 and here for part 2.
At the end of my last post, I had just finished laying my penny floor and discussed my supply list for doing it. I am going to pick right back up where I left off... Sealing the floor!
|This is a freshly sealed floor. It has been sprayed thoroughly |
and wipedwith a terry cloth bar towel to remove the extra sealant
from the pennies. I have no intention of slipping on slick pennies
as I step out of my claw foot tub!
|A better view of the project.|
|Lamp stand bought at flea market this summer. Pure brass. |
Brass switch plates - 3 years ago at yard sale for $2 for the bundle.
|You can't see it, but you should realize that NO house is square,|
certainly not mine, so my panels gapped in the corners.
Nothing wood filler wouldn't fix :)
|Brass floor grate. What do you think of brass and copper together?|
|A terrible corner! SO glad this is in the corner behind the sink! |
I had to cut some biscuits from extra chair rail to fill that gap.
Wood filler, paint. Nearly invisible.
|And then Niki came to by!|
I was so tired, but having a friend come to help made it enjoyable.
She is always there to help me just when I can't take much more!
|So it's painted. Roll on one coat, brush the second. |
Finished by 6pm? Sounds right.
|The next day? I applied a second coat of grout sealer before the tub and |
toilet went in again.
Isn't it pretty? Too bad I have to put things over my floor...
|But I'm done! That means it's tub time! |
And that means I get my kitchen back!
This bathroom represents a milestone for us. With this room "completed", we are down to just a handful of projects to complete inside the house. Namely, the kitchen remodel, the dining room ceiling, and
It's been almost 5 years! Being this close to DONE has me beginning to focus on the smaller details - painting the stairs and stairwell, trimming out rooms, hanging pictures, changing light fixtures... I honestly believed we would never get to those fluffy details! The end is in sight! I have hopes of being able to work on other projects in the not so distant future - sewing, painting, and so many other hobbies that we just haven't had time or energy for because of the remodel. Mostly, I'm looking forward to a clean, de-cluttered house because I will finally be able to PUT THE TOOLS AWAY!
Hey, I can dream, can't I?
