The Conservatory Bathroom — Final Details Remain

Back in November of last year we had a number of projects remaining in the conservatory bathroom. The remaining items are written in orange.

The shower will be enclosed something like this.

  3. We used the same wood to close the plumbing access behind the shower head near the toilet.
    The area to the left of the toilet will be covered with shallow shelves made from vintage wood.

    4.  The plumber returned to clear gunk out of the showerhead which prevented the water from freely flowing.

    This showerhead has limited water pressure but the rest of the fixtures in the bathroom are fine. We think some pipe shavings got stuck in the showerhead.

    The mermaid hook is the right style of rustic.

    6.  Touch up paint that’s been nicked. We have  a few spackle repairs and touch-ups to in addition to painting the baseboard, door and window trim.

    The paint color in the conservatory bathroom is "Seed" by Valspar.

Reviewing our progress from time to time lifts my spirits.

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.

  1. This bathroom has come a long way. When are you going to install the round window trim? No pressure or anything – it seems a little daunting to me.

    1. There’s more to it than meets the eye and I haven’t been able to find a YouTube video to help us. Apparently Melissa at the Inspired Room also had trouble recently having round window trim installed. We’ll get-‘er-dun though. Soon. Jo
