Salutations! Mr. Manly and I have had quite the weekend, but we are making major strides in the upstairs bathroom. It snowed all last night into the early morning so I made buttermilk pancakes to help us recover from several days of steady work. Nothing like hot fresh pancakes while the snow is falling outside! They make you feel all cozy inside.
Oh where to begin, so much has been going on. Well we painted the walls, they’re a light gray color with blue undertones. I love the way the color turned out, but I was very hesitant. I painted on a couple of swatches to test it out and it looked white, but we went for it anyway. It’s just what I was hoping for.
This was my crazy idea. That cute little radiator must weigh like 1000 pounds. It took three of us just to get it from the bathroom into our guest room. The thought of carrying it down a flight of stairs so it could be painted outdoors was worrying me. So this is what we came up with. It worked! We hung plastic all around the room and set up a fan for ventilation. Mr. Manly cleaned it with a wire brush and then painted it with flat white spray paint a little at a time.
We had our tub and sink refinished by professionals, the sink is in the garage. I’m so pleased with how they turned out. Honey was a little disappointed. He was expecting them to look fresh from the factory, brand spankin’ new—they don’t. They look like old pieces that have been redone. I’m so very happy though so he says he is too.
I also received the shower curtain I ordered from Pottery Barn, it’s gray linen with a ruffled bottom. A few more things have to happen before I can hang the shower curtain and put the icing on this cake. I am so ready for a slice…
