Nailing Things to the Walls

I look forward to having painted walls so I can start hanging things on them.

This is a fairly good rendition of the bathroom wall color which is difficult to capture in a photo especially in artificial light.

Things I’ve had to stash somewhere else for a couple of years.  The back bedroom has five mirrors in it waiting for their proper places on newly painted walls.

I bought these hooks at Ross over ten years ago for $4 (the tag was still on it when I got it ready to hang up).

Since the conservatory bathroom was recently painted I hung a set of 3 hooks attached to some happy frogs.

From inside the shower of the bathroom the conservatory is visible until we put a door on.

I also painted the switch plates with the wall color.

The single-sink vanity goes between the two walls.

After we tile the floor in this bathroom we’re planning to build a rustic vanity with a ceramic sink that runs wall to knee wall. Something between this and this.

Do you save things for later or throw away what you can’t use immediately?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
