I began off the week robust with getting stuff achieved on the grasp lavatory, however then the week with a fizzle. I don’t work on Wednesdays, after which yesterday, I needed to go to the attention physician and get my eyes dilated so she might do an intensive examination. Since I had by no means had my eyes dilated earlier than, she stated she wouldn’t order extra contacts for me till she might do this examination. So I bought there brilliant and early, had my eyes dilated, bought the examination (the whole lot seemed good), after which it took actually the remainder of the day (till about 6:00pm) for my eyes to get again to regular and the blurriness to go away. My eyes have been so blurry all day that I couldn’t see my laptop. I couldn’t see to measure and lower trim for the lavatory. I couldn’t do something that required me to see element up shut. So I didn’t get something performed yesterday, both!! Ugh! So irritating.
So I’ll provide you with a toilet standing report as we head into the weekend. I’m actually hoping to get fairly a bit performed this weekend, so we’ll see how that goes.
The partitions within the water closet are nonetheless underway (I shared the plan here if you missed that), and they’re nonetheless on the identical stage the place I left them on Tuesday evening. That is the place my focus can be this weekend, as I hope to get the remainder of the trim put in, after which get the whole lot sanded, caulked, and hopefully painted.
As soon as the partitions are performed in there, I can begin constructing the cupboard (which can be a separate, freestanding piece of furnishings) that may go towards that again wall.
I haven’t made any extra progress on the bubble mild. Whereas the additional bubbles (ornaments) that I ordered did are available, I additionally determined to order a ceiling medallion for the sunshine.
That is one which was really helpful by a commenter on the final bubble mild submit (thanks, Alicia!!), and I completely cherished it at first sight. It’s like a whimsical solar medallion, and it’s from Wayfair. I can’t wait to get it, however it gained’t be right here till subsequent week. So the sunshine is on maintain till then.
I’ve determined to maintain the ceiling white, however I’m nonetheless undecided in regards to the shade of the particular mild. I’ll wait till the medallion will get right here, after which mess around with some choices. If the medallion provides sufficient separation between the ceiling and the sunshine, then I’ll most likely go away the sunshine white. If I feel it nonetheless wants a bit of pizzazz, I’m leaning in direction of a really mild blush pink on the bubbles. However once more, I’ll have to attend and see.
Transferring on, all the trim and the door on the outside wall are painted, however the glass on the door nonetheless must be cleaned, and I want to put in the brand new door knob and deadbolt on the door. These can be black, identical to on all the opposite doorways in the home.
I’m nonetheless ready on trim to reach in order that I can begin constructing the vanities and the dresser that may go between them. I discovered a spot on-line (Distinctive Wood Designs) that sells every kind of trim in many alternative species of wooden (together with the walnut that I want), in order that’s coming from Canada, and it’ll most likely be one other week earlier than it arrives. Technically, I might go forward and construct the vanities earlier than the trim arrives, and simply add the trim afterwards. However for the dresser, due to the design, I want that order to return in first earlier than I can begin constructing.
The bathe appears identical to it seemed the opposite day when I showed the finished shower to you. The bathe curtain nonetheless must be hemmed, and till I get that performed (or simply take away it till it’s performed), the bathe is again to an unusable state.
After which on the opposite wall, the door main into the house health club, in addition to the casing round it, are nonetheless unfinished. All the nail holes have been wooden crammed, however I nonetheless have to sand, caulk, after which paint. As soon as that’s performed, I can lower away the plastic that’s presently protecting the glass panes. (The white that you simply see on the glass is primer protecting the plastic that protects the panes. The producer covers the panes with plastic, after which sprays the primer, in order that’s how the doorways arrive.)
So the progress has been sluggish this week, however not less than there was progress! And not less than I now have a path for the water closet partitions. My objective remains to be to have this room performed by the top of June, however I higher step up the tempo if I’m going to make that objective!
