I thought I would write a post about finishing the bathroom caulk, when I realized I never wrote a post about starting the bathroom caulk! Too many projects going on around here to keep track.
Well I told you in this post that the bathroom, like the kitchen, is a slow and on-going project. Here are some shots of the process/progress.
First, a shot of the beginning. (Excuse the spots. Drywall dust from kitchen demo.)
Wallpaper stripped and walls painted bright white (semi-gloss paint).
Glass on light fixture changed to something more updated.
Old on the right. New on the left.
New installed. Pretty!
Oh and did I mention when the medicine cabinet was removed, we had a nice view into the demo'd kitchen? Who doesn't want a window from their bathroom into their kitchen??
We have since dry-walled over the hole on the kitchen side, and I bought a mirror at Ikea to cover the hole on the bathroom side.
It wasn't quite big enough. Bummer! I refuse to patch the hole. As stated in my Labor Day To-Do List, I will be replacing the Ikea mirror with one from my mother-in-law. I hope it not only covers the old medicine cabinet hole, but also covers the big screw holes I put in the wall by hanging the Ikea mirror...sigh.
I also changed the faucet and the vanity hardware.
Old faucet. Ew.
Old and new.
Old vanity hardware.
And finally....finally......I got around to the caulk.
The caulk before was cracked and brownish-nast. No bueno. Also, probably not doing a good job of keeping water from seeping into places it's not supposed to be.
With new caulk. Aaaahhh. Much better.
Jeez...looking at all these pictures again reminds me of how much I've done in there. And it's still not finished! But at least the next step is decorating = the fun part.
It does look bare and cold right now, but at least it feels fresh and clean. With some accessories and curtains to warm it up, it'll be good to go!
