Tales Of A Bathroom...

I am staring at a disheveled master bath and bedroom.
I am hanging my hand towel on Lucy's kitty tree.
She is not big on sharing. She keeps knocking it off.
We have not yet found a shower head, toilet paper holder, towel racks, and hand towel holders.
Thank you Home Depot and Lowe's for having not one item we wanted in stock.
Restoration Hardware is our last hope but it is far far away in the distant land called King Of more sigh...
The shower door will be installed on Tuesday matter what.
Men will stomp up my wooden stairs and invariably kick the backs of those stairs with their work shoes. They will look at me crossly when I tell them that we don't wear shoes in our house and could they just try to be careful?
They will slam our front door many times as they carry pieces of glass up and down...and up and down...I am quite certain Den's beautiful paint job will get dings and nicks.

Oh me...
Oh my...yet one more sigh... is the bright side...we can actually use our bathroom shower again!!!

And here is the not so bright side...we have not one thing to hang towels on.
And minutes ago the faucet part of my husband's sink fell apart and the entire fixture has to be replaced and mine, too, so that they match!!!

That will take a whole new skill set!!!

  1. Oh, aren't projects such fun? I remember it well. In my last house, we were doing lots of updates, including painting, installing ceiling fans, etc.

    Then a new shower in the guesthouse. For that, we hired someone to do the tile, but we did all the painting.

    The chaos and mess, not to mention the inconvenience was enough to drive me crazy. Keeping the end goal in sight helped....

    Also...hiding out somewhere to read.

  2. and when it is over you won't remember any of this ... you will just be enjoying all of your nice new pretty things! :)

  3. yea to the working shower! sorry to hear about the little hurdles. it will all be worth it in the end!!

  4. I see your towel on Lucy's kitty tree...LOL
    My kitties never did like the "man made" kitty trees, etc. They are too used to just hang out on my chairs, furniture, beds, etc.
    Don't be discouraged...before you know it, it will be all done, and will look beautiful!

  5. That bathroom ought to be pretty damn amazing when it's done.
