i took down the first layer of 1970’s wallpaper in May.
worked on the second layer in June.
got discouraged in July.
didn’t touch it again til September.
and now, finally, in October, i’ve finished the masterbathroom:
our house is nice–nicer than i would’ve ever thought for our first house–but very outdated, and we got a “fixer-upper” price on it because of that. luckily a lot of the outdated aspects of our house are cosmetic and not too expensive to fix–a bit of paint goes a long way.
this bathroom, if you can tell, is disproportionately humongous for our house. when we gave my brother-in-law the tour, he commented “so this is where you have your dance parties?”
right now i’m not taking advantage of this space as much as i could be. i mean, what do you do with extra floor space in a bathroom? i’ve never had a house like that. my thoughts are to maybe get some sort of cabinet or bookshelf thing to put in the jacuzzi room (an indulgent add-on by the last owners–they did live in this house for 40+ years) so i can store linens in there and free up some of our decent-but-limited closet space.
anyway, i should show you the “before” picture so you can see some of the difference–this is what it looked like when we first laid eyes on it:
and the de-grandma-ing of the house continues….
