Having been fairly incapacitated for the last month due to the molar incident and a bad case of food poisoning, I started working on the trim and paneling in the bathroom today. Specifically in the water closet.
Our original idea was to tile up the walls about 4′, in the style of turn-of-the-century (well, the previous century) bathhouses. Sadly, the hexagon tile we wanted was extremely cost-prohibitive. (We were going to use the same hexagon tile on the floor originally as well.)
So we started looking at other options. We both like the look of Craftsman-style trim. While our home isn’t a Craftsman, the insides share some similarities. And again, we like the look.
As I was cutting and installing the panels and trim, the Husbear said he thinks we should do a few other rooms in the house like this. I really hope he’s joking… but I think he’s not.
I hope to finish getting the trim in the water closet area cut and installed tomorrow. Then comes the puttying and caulking and painting.
Until next time...
