& then there was light...
So after 8 years I believe I now can see my way around our bathroom! Which let's face it, this has its pluses & minuses.
The mini "renovation" is going slowly. After finally removing all of the stalactites from the cieling I had to do copious amounts of sanding. This was pretty gross. The floor, my uncovered skin & parts of my scalp had an inch thick layer of fine powdered spackle. We are trying to make the cieling look smooth enough without actually replacing it.
In between this process of sanding spackling & sanding yet again, the lights were installed, (by my multi-talented hubby-who I am convinced can figure out pretty much anything in this old house of ours) -the beautiful lights, lights like I have never seen before, dare I say, lights like no other...lights that when lit, brighten everything, casting a warm glow in what used to be a cold dark bathroom. A wonderful side effect of this newfound light is that the yellow color they give off makes you feel like we have real heat in the room!
Enclosed I have included some photographs so that you can get a bit of an impression of what our little bathroom used to look like before it is finished.
The sink in the photo below below looks darker here because the light over the sink hasn't yet arrived.
We plan on painting the bottom of the tub a much deliberated (is this a word?) choice of color.
