Demolition Derby

Hallelujah, the upstairs bath no longer exists. The second floor was once just a plain, old attic. Then it seems the homeowners were inspired to expand and haphazardly divided it into a three bedroom, one bath space. Describing the work as shoddy is being kind. Our minuscule corner shower that could barely fit an average size female was discovered to have a wall held up with just one stud and nail. Also, due to a leak we were not able to use it for over five years. Good times all around.

I have documented the demise of this poor excuse of a bathroom.

The mounted the toilet on a pedestal. Yup. 


View from the hallway

The tight, small shower.



Did I mention there is absolutely no insulation in the walls? Wasn't a concern back in 1920. 


We are expanding the wall out and will have a sliding barn door. In the spot where the toilet was is where the sink shall go and the shower next to that. The Toilet will be next to the big window which will have frosted/stained glass.



And I would like to end this post with a semi-farewell song. Good bye crappily put together bathroom, it's been fun.





Cheers!

  1. You're far, far ahead of us on bathroom renovations; shortly after we began we found cast iron pipes, cracked cast iron pipes. They have to be taken out and replaced before we can proceed any further.

  2. The cast iron pipes are insane in this house. We have copper too, but the prior owners, who owned this place for 40 years, did NOT do any repairs right. It's crazy.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…
