The Death Of Pinky
August 11, 2011Posted by on
Over the past week we finally had the tile in the pink bathroom re-glazed. We need to let it set for a few days before we can put the toilet back in or do any real work in there. We couldn’t be happier with how this turned out. On Saturday the walls were done, and the fumes in the house we terrible. We had to leave all the windows open, fans running, etc for about 8 hours before it started to smell ok. On Monday they did the floor, and that thankfully didn’t smell as bad. On Tuesday they came back and took down all the paper and caulked. I am so glad I paid someone else to do this. What took them three days probably would have taken me at least three months, and I’m not even sure I would have been able to finish it after smelling how strong this stuff was.
The new floor. This is a beige stone fleck pattern. It’s fairly similar to the counter top, although we didn’t realize that when we picked it out using a small 1 in x 1 in sample.
The new walls. I’m going to re-paint the actual walls to give the room some color, and hopefully putting the shower curtain back up will hide the difference in the two shades of white from the shower and wall tile.
The finished lights re-installed. I am so happy with how these turned out, and am planning on doing the same thing to the pendant lights in the other two bathrooms.
Here is a close-up of the light.
The only thing left(besides painting the walls which is fairly easy and straightforward), is to finish sanding down the off-white trim and paint it white. You can see in the above picture with the window how yellow the trim looks next to the white walls. Here is what it looks like around the doors. I’ll need to get rid of the flaking paint, and then also paint the inside of the closet and the shelves in there. The goal is to be done by the end of September at the latest, but hopefully much sooner!
