Unfortunately when we had the additions put on something must have put pressure on this bathroom because a couple of tiles cracked. Naturally they’re in a conspicuous spot.
In our boxes of tile I found vintage pink tiles: one designated on the back as “new” and 2 more as “old”.
My plan is to try to find additional vintage pink tiles because I need a bullnose tile.
As a matter of fact if I can find a half dozen pink bullnose tiles it would be even better since the tiles under the shelf under the mirror should be bullnose but are not. Two have even been carved out to accommodate a former medicine cabinet.
I’m searching locally first where I hope to be successful.
I’m always interested to see the photos that readers of Let’s Face the Music click on to get a better look. These results have not changed significantly from 2014.
I have been writing daily since March, 2011. Back then I didn’t know much about inserting photos into the blog but I have been learning over the past 6 years how to make the photos better and more viewable.
The top ten photos viewed on this blog since the beginning are as follows:
3. In third place with 160 clicks is another bamboo trellis photo.
2. In second place with 245 clicks is yet another bamboo trellis photo.
1. Finally in first place with 271 clicks is a color swatch guide to Hardie board siding colors.
In the end I guess the most popular things I’ve ever written about are still the versatile and cost-effective bamboo trellises we use in the garden. We’ll be building some new ones this year. In the mean time if you search “bamboo” on this blog you’ll see a number of posts with details of acquiring bamboo and building trellises.
Do you have a chore you do annually? What and when?
By definition a triptych is a set of three associated artistic, literary, or musical works intended to be appreciated together.
To finish up the space over the toilet in the master bathroom where I hung a print of Paris and a clock with a map of France I felt there needed to be one more item. I had a piece of shelf glass that would fit well.
I wanted to hang it with the least conspicuous hardware which I found at Home Depot. (Naturally the first HD I stopped at did not have it but the one heading in the other direction had a variety of styles on hand.)
Using a level and long dry wall anchors that came with the shelf brackets I managed to secure the shelf to the wall allowing enough space for the top of the toilet tank to be removed without taking the shelf down.
The brackets I chose are rated for no deeper than a 6″ glass shelf; my shelf is closer to 8 inches so I might have to make an adjustment.
I’m looking for my colorful paper fish to display on the shelf but for now I have a small Limoges box, an enamel lidded box, and a small pitcher.
