Bathroom Redo Update III

I surprised myself by staying on schedule to paint the walls yesterday. I was concerned that a second coat might be in order but found that Behr's paint touches up beautifully. When pulling off some of the tape, I found more spots that required touch up and used post its to mark the spots.

These towels are for "looks." I'm going to get a bigger basket to place on top to hold the towels hubby will be allowed to use. lol As you can see, when the tape was pulled off, a touch up is required next to the cabinet.

The texture is somewhat rough and found a few places that need more paint. In my haste to clean up yesterday, I took the ladder out to the barn. I'm waiting until the rain stops. When the rain spigot opened last month, rain just keeps coming. We've had over 3 inches this morning with no stopping in sight. Not that I'm really complaining with the drought we've been in the last 21 months. I just wish we had another rainwater collection tank.

Aha, more touch ups. And since everything is cleared out, I saw the mildew along the tub. So, before this bathroom is finished, I'll have to scrap the caulking around the tub then re- caulk. Ugh.

Until next time, God bless.

It's coming along, isn't it? Nice to have towels just for show, not for use. I know that one. My husband broke me of the habit, which must have been learned at my mother's knee. Men hate it, though.

Thanks for the quick comment on my yarn. I'll go shop around...

It's coming along great Lynn. I am looking forward to seeing the finished room. Right now it reminds me of a spa.

You're doing a very good job Lynn! The color is very soothing to the eyes. It's one bathroom that can make you bring a hot cup of coffee in! LOL

Oh wait...don't forget to add coffee scented aromatherapy oil!

Lynn, I'm glad you're enjoying all the tough work. I know how it feels to see your home transforming before your very eyes. I once did up my entire home bit by bit for a consecutive 6 months! It was back-breaking at times, so please take care of your health while doing so. God bless.

Good job. It always seems that whenever a project gets started, something else happens to cause you more work.

I'm sure it will look so nice when it's all done.

It's really looking good, your hard work is paying off. I love the shelf, I love it so much I might try something similar. Looking forward to seeing the final version.

I'm glad you are getting rain after the long dry spell.
