When I moved into The Glade over 20 years ago the powder room was a dark room with overhead metal cabinets.
When we refurbished the we had the sink resurfaced.
I had always called it “Le Bibliotheque” (that sign is still on the door) because the wall looked like bookshelves in a library. The faux books and shelving gave depth to a very small, windowless room.
The new wallpaper is much lighter, “C’est Magnifique“.
We used the same towel bar, mirror, paper holder, and over head shelf.
We changed the toilet due to a crack in the base of the old one. The new toilet’s tank does lean against the wall like the old one did.
We repaired holes and added new baseboard and chair rail trim.
Now we have a lighter, brighter powder room. I’m calling it “The Grand Tour”.
I had to plan and scheme to make the 2 showers in our new bathrooms zero threshold entries.
Since they have been finished for a couple of years now I can definitely say they were the right way to go.
While we don’t use the one in the conservatory much at this time it is a neat looking design which works well.
Our everyday shower in the master suite is used multiple times each day.
There is no water leakage issue. The floor and surround are easy to clean.
I can recommend going to the extra trouble of installing a curbless shower especially if someone in the household uses a walker or wheelchair. Those are not yet our issues but we’ll be prepared if they ever arise.
In addition to watching our sweet little dog, Dash, Sug has created a chore list for herself while we’re away.
She’s planning to secure all trim that has been cut. Then she’s filling all nail holes and finishing the project by painting all installed trim. She will also touch up some spots on the ceiling in both the pink tile bathroom and the powder room.
She plans paint the wall just outside the pink tile bathroom that was repaired a while ago.
And we have 2 interior doors that have not been painted. Sug will paint them.
She’s also going to paint the shed door which has peeled significantly.
I’m sure she won’t stop at these tasks.
Does someone look after your house and animals while you’re away?
