HOUSE: Newburgh

Plumbing? In the bathroom? Really?

Yes, really! The roughing-in work is FINALLY done on the upstairs bathroom. Everything incoming and outgoing has been replaced, so even though this photo doesn’t look beautiful, this is serious progress. This week we’ll do some work to reinforce the joists, then next week (hopefully) the tile guy will come to put a new subfloor and our marble hexagons in place.

The clawfoot tub has also been flipped over (no easy feat, the plumbers did it for us!) so I can get started on getting the outside of it repainted before it’s time to have it put back in the bathroom. Frankly, it’s been in the “guest bedroom” (HA) for so long now that it will be weird to have it gone. And, you know, filled with water instead of plaster dust.

    Conjurations sort of works in this case, too! 🙂

    No shower curtain, sorry! It’s a clawfoot tub, and it will just have a hand shower, not an upright pole.

    Just the fun stuff left to do now! I think I’ll be terribly disappointed when you’re finished decorating your house because it will mean no more incredible befores and afters.

    And I bet a HUGE relief for you.

    Saw this and thought of your diy table I saw in your archives recently…

    I have been looking for good legs to attach to a bookcase thing my friend made for me, someday, some-day!

    Yey for your bathroom progress! The tiles excite me especially, can’t wait to see!

    $159 is WAY too much for that little table!

      Hi Lan, we had our tub and radiators sandblasted and powder-coated at Extreme Powder Coating in New Windsor.

      Welcome to Newburgh! 🙂
