to the throne room. My throne room, to be exact.
A few things I'd like you to know about "the facilities":
My shower really does have that frosted on the glass.
And I love my master water closet. I do. It's very large and spacious. But it is in some serious need. Some serious need of attention and updating. And so, little by little, we will be working on "el bano".
First, and most pressing of needs:
The corrosion of the sinks. DON'T YOU JUDGE ME!
Just keeping it real, here. I tole ya the little girl's room needed help. And some CLR and a scrub brush.
So, the hubs got on his horse and picked out some lovely rubbed bronze taps. And then he told me the cost. And I went like this:
"ONE HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE??? EACH?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IS THAT IN PESOS?"
No, I wasn't going to spend $125 on each faucet. So we took those back, and then we ordered from overstock, and got these for $50:
Aaaahhh. New. Clean. Non-corroded. Thanks be.
I'm not the biggest fan of towel bars. Oh my gosh you can see my reflection in that towel bar! And I'm naked!
Not really. Sorry for the visual. Remember that ebay teapot dude? Hehehe.
So, I had these totally cool, totally cheap hooks from the Hob Lob:
and I had some extra 1x4 that I ran through "the shaper".
Just to give it a little curve, ya know?
And that board, some paint, some screws, and those hooks,
and I like it. Man, the crapper is looking better, all the time.
This is a really dirty post. My apologies.
And last but certainly not least, the epic failure.
The tub's faucet. My, oh my.
What you can't see is how that brass was just peeling off the end of that faucet.
And I had this great idea to save a little $$ and spray paint it with krylon rubbed bronze.
For the record, the first coat looked good. The 2nd coat looked like this:
And so I broke down and get ourselves a new one.
I love you, faucet.
What's next in the "Oval Office"? The "John"? The "Privy"?
Removal of the "Let there be light!" bar, framing in of the jumbotron mirror, and much, much more. But "The Library" is looking better all the time.
