Well, almost nailed it. Guess what? We’re thisclose to finishing the main bathroom. Over the weekend, Ben put up most of the trim. Then he ran out. Of course I couldn’t wait, so I filled holes and caulked all the seams I could. It’s looking a little rough, but we’re getting there.
But nothing is ever simple with us. That plan we had talked about a few months ago must have been forgotten, thus causing an argument or two. First off, the door trim. Ben cut a piece of the casement for the top, but it looked wimpy, and I
insisted suggested he beef it up to five inches. (That’s what she said.)
While annoyed, he must have agreed because he didn’t protest. The toilet nook (doesn’t that sound cozy) was easy to agree on.
However, the vanity area had many issues. For starters, Ben forgot that I wanted false drawers on the front of the vanity. Sure, we could cover it with a flat piece, but I think it needs some more character and bling. Good grief, I want to use pretty drawer pulls.
Until Ben decides he wants to work on that, we’ve still got this going on.
He cut a piece of trim to go along the side of the counter top, and I’m just not feeling it. Just too bulky.
And I really don’t like the way the end looks against the linen closet.
Most likely we’ll add 1/4 inch thick by 3 inch wide trim instead to make a border around the closet end. Because the walls aren’t perfectly straight, we’ve got a gap to fill at the back of the closet.
Basically, the visible side of the linen closet will have shaker style details similar to the kitchen cabinets we built for our first house. And faux drawers to match, please. Then we still have to cut thin strips to cap off the chair rail.
To cap it off, we’ll add crown molding, which I still have to find. Something simple with a little bit of detail would be great.
Gotta sand down the filled areas to get ready for priming and painting. Perhaps between scraping wallpaper off I’ll find some time.
I know Ben gets annoyed, but I’m fairly certain he likes the results, despite my uncanny ability to request changes. Hey, I have a vision and I’m not good at compromising. Haha.
What differences do you and your spouse have about projects? Did you get a project almost done over the weekend?
