Hi everyone! I’ve been in grieving over my hard drive fail and it’s made it hard to focus on the blog. (For those of you just tuning in, I took my computer to the Apple store and they weren’t able to recover anything off of my hard drive. I lost four+ years of everything. Sob!) I’m trying not to beat myself up too badly for being a complete idiot and not backing anything up but that is proving difficult. Thanks for all of your sweet words on facebook and through email. You guys are the best!
Okay, on to happier things! I am working feverishly to finish my half bath and will have a full reveal in a few days. I have a long way to go on it. Right now it just looks like this….
Yes, I have my work cut out for me this weekend!
My original plan was to do a tiled wall behind the sink like this:
I LOVE this look, but unfortunately our budget wouldn’t allow for it after the cost of having the entire bathroom rewired. So here is the new design plan:
And to add some storage, I will install shelves behind the toilet to look something like this:
We changed out the faucet from an oil-rubbed bronze to a shiny chrome. I know that ORB is still very popular, but I was tired of it and ready for a change. Below you can see a before picture of my towel and toilet paper holder.
I spray painted them with Champion Sterling Silver spray enamel and they look great! If you’re looking for a chrome/mirror-like finish this stuff rocks. You can actually see yourself in the finish! I’ve used this same can for several small projects, and I still have about half a can left. I highly recommend it.
Okay, I need to get back to painting and wallpapering! Hopefully all we be done and show-worthy soon!
