There’s this thing I do. It’s like spring cleaning, intensified. This time last year I was in the midst of making over several rooms in my house. This time this year I’m–once again–making over several rooms in my house. After last year’s makeover, you’d think I would have learned to do one room at a time. But no. This time I set out to update two bathrooms. And then my oldest daughter unexpectedly vacated her bedroom and left me with yet another blank canvas of a room. So yeah. Three rooms. Here we go again.
The pièce de résistance in bathroom number one is to be the crown molding that I talked my handier-by-the-day husband in to hanging. He promised it would be done in a weekend and though I had my doubts I went with it, fearing a disaster or two. To my surprise and delight, the crown molding install was not disastrous. That’s not to say all went well here in the DIY land of weekend warriors though. We had a small mishap with the installation of a new bathtub lever. A mishap that left water gushing and consequently soaked the drywall. The mister and I may have exchanged some heated, frantic words at that point. And we may or may not have given each other the silent treatment for the next twelve hours or so.
In any case, all is well that ends well. I’m happy to report that my handy, handsome husband absolutely rocked the crown molding (which, I’m assured, is no small thing). And in case you didn’t pick it up in my tone, we patched things over rather smoothly.
Now if only he can do the same with that hole in the wall. In due time, I’m sure.
I’ll post pictures of the completed project when it’s, well, completed. Here’s hoping that happens sooner than later.
