It's been a while...
I've been mulling an update, but didn't feel like I had much to say since I didn't do much this winter. A few things stacked up recently, so it's feeling like time to break radio silence.
I finished updating the brown bathroom - yesterday. This bathroom started brown. The ceiling, the walls, the tile, the vanity. All of it. Except the sink, which was pink-y peach, the toilet which was peach and the bathtub which was pink. I replaced the toilet and the sink, and painted the room. Yes, it took something like six months. I'm the kind of remodeler where if there's *anything* else to do, I'll do the other thing.
It seems like people in the 1960s were shorter. Four months of the six months was spent deciding what to do with the tile soap dish and toothbrush holder that I so intelligently didn't realize would interfere with the new vanity. Then, deciding which type of not-matching tile would go in the open spaces on the wall. Then, trying my best to adjust the piping angles. And finally, calling in someone to finish the job.
Things have mostly been on hold for the last several months as I struggled to get through EMT class. It was convenient that it was also cold, yukky and dark at the same time. Now that all of that is mostly out of the way, me and the new bushes are looking forward to the impending warmth and light of spring.
