If you missed Part One, we are renovating our upstairs guest bathroom. Last week our floor tile was delivered from Home Depot, we ordered a vanity and sink, and we purchased the wall tile from Lowes. Some of the supplies are upstairs near the bathroom and others are still on the porch. The tile boxes are pretty heavy!
Mr. SP worked hard on Saturday to sand the ceiling and then to coat it and the walls with Kilz. You can’t tell from the photograph, but the ceiling is now nice and smooth and you can’t tell that the paint just a few weeks ago was chipping and peeling everywhere. A new vent fan that hasn’t been purchased or installed should solve this problem in the future. The final paint color will be determined after I pick out fabric for the shower curtain and window treatment.
While Mr. SP did the hard work, I researched fabric for the window treatment and shower curtain and ordered a few samples. I’m eager to get these to see how I like them in person. Here are a few that I ordered:
Tomorrow a plumber will come to install a new faucet in the shower. The old faucets are original to the house and leak, even after repeated attempts at fixing them. While he’s here, he’ll also install a new faucet in our main bath which is also original and leaks.
It’s exciting to make some progress on this project! I’m hoping that Mr. SP will tile away this weekend!
