HOUSE: Newburgh

Remember the bathroom?

Well, we’re still working on it. But look!

Yes, yes, there are walls now! The Plaster Fairy came to visit us, and he did an amazing job (that sheetrock panel on the left will be covered up after the Electric Fairy is done). The trimwork is almost finished, too—we just have to finish up one little strip under the top rail, and the shoe molding at the bottom.

(Would you believe there’s a FULLY TILED floor hiding under that kraft paper?! I can’t wait to finish painting so I can pull the paper up and admire it!)

Let’s have a look at a “before” photo, OK?

So yeah, it’s really getting somewhere!

    I’m really looking forward to seeing this looking like a bathroom (as I’m sure you are!) – it seems to have been a very long job. Looks like it’s getting there now and it’ll be lovely when it’s finished. That before photo is just awful!

    Wow I can’t believe how far the bathroom has come. I’m so excited to see how it looks in the end. It isn’t even my home and I’m excited. You must be ecstatic.

    no way!!! i can’t believe the progress (and i thought it was fun how you showed the end product first to make the shock factor even that much more, well, shocking).
