HOUSE: Newburgh

No peeking!

Tomorrow morning, the new bathroom will have its inaugural shower, and I will have my first shower since starting demo in mid-October. I thought this would have happened weeks ago, but little things kept getting in the way—a part for the shower drain was broken and had to be ordered from the manufacturer, the tub drain had a leak, I had to make time to seal the grout in the shower (which took 4 hours with a tiny paintbrush!), etc. Endless!

With the exception of the radio I ordered today, the bathroom is now DONE. This is all you get to see for now, though! Sorry, but those are the rules. I have something special planned for the big reveal, though—something I’ve never done before. I promise it will be worth the wait!

    will you be giving away a weekend for two in your new guest room?

    actually!! i just found a census from the 1880s?? for Newburgh with my great great grandmother (she was 14) on it. So I should poke around there, too! (Loskamp was the last name.)

    Oh, I hate waiting! But when I saw you ordered a radio for your bathroom, I knew before I clicked the link which one it would be! I have the same radio in my bathroom (along with subway tile and penny rounds on the floor and a wall mounted sink and a vipp wastecan…) And I have to say, the radio is possibly my favorite thing — I’m addicted to listening to NPR in the mornings while I shower.

    Can’t wait for the big reveal!

    Corey over at Tongue and Cheek did a photoshoot of herself bathing upon the completion of her very french bathroom (her husband was the photographer)…is that what you have up your sleeve???

    I can’t wait to see the bathroom…your style floors me.

    Congrats! I hope you enjoyed your first shower!
    I hate that sealing grout thing too – why oh why does it take so long?!

  • Reply anne March 23, 2009 at 11:44 am

    I am so excited to see the final result! I hope it is a video reveal — that would be SO cool!

    You are awful, how can you make me wait? 😛

    Apparently, I sounded crazy to my boyfriend when I told him that I’m waiting for your bathroom’s grand opening.

    Oh Anna…If you only knew how much I adore your style:) I live in Sweden and I am constantly telling my friends here about your blog… I can’t wait to see the bathroom.
    Love Nina
