When we bought our house (almost 16 years ago) (which is freakin' unbelievable), the owner had to give us a significant "renovation allowance" . . . because there was wallpaper EVERYWHERE. I know it was high-end wallpaper, professionally installed and (I'm sure) very on-trend when it was first done. In 1989. But it wasn't me and it didn't go with my stuff and it wasn't what I wanted to look at/live in every day.
So I spent every cent of the"renovation allowance" hiring professionals to remove and paint the major living spaces before we even moved in. (Ahhhh. So much better.) But I ran out of "renovation allowance" before I ran out of rooms (because I also recarpeted) (priorities). Three rooms were left . . . for later:
And then, there was one. Which means -- Yes! It's time to re-do the guest bathroom!
Right now, it's in a state of . . . unravel.
I'm (slowly and painstakingly) removing the (truly gross) wallpaper.
There is a lovely new sink and a new granite countertop -- but no fixtures. (Plumber coming later today!)
And soon, the shower fixtures will be new and up to date. (See plumber, above.)
I still haven't decided on a paint color, but I've narrowed my choices. And I have a little time. (Because I still need to get the rest of the wallpaper off the walls.)
It won't be long now . . . and I'll have accomplished what I set out to do nearly 16 years ago: Blot out the memory of all that hideous wallpaper!
