A lot of progress was made this week in the bathroom. The plumber came on Tuesday to finish his work which included installing a one handled faucet to replace our old two handled one and replacing the shower head. On Friday we had the bathtub resurfaced. The old paint was removed and it now looks better than new with a fresh coat of white paint.
I took the before pictures Thursday night with some difficulty since the bathroom has no light right now. You can’t tell from the pictures ,but the tub was an off-white color. The previous owner had it resurfaced at some time and it always felt a bit sticky to me.
Believe it or not, these pictures were taken after I cleaned the tub. Since we knew we were having it resurfaced, we weren’t careful when we removed the old tile or during grouting. Note the shiny new faucet, too!
Countless trips were made up and down two sets of stairs to make all of the necessary cuts. Look at what a great job he did along the curved edge of the tub. The vent got a fresh coat of paint this weekend, too.
I had a day off from school last Monday because it snowed and was able to get a good start on a roman shade for the window. I accidentally bought three dowels instead of four when I shopped on Friday after school so I didn’t get to finish this project this weekend as anticipated. Once I get the last dowel, I’ll run the string through the holes in the tape and this project is finished.
I think the lighter shade looks better than the darker one when I compare it to my main curtain fabric. I’d love your opinion on paint color. Do you like the grey or should I pull another color from the fabric for the walls?
