The final touches

February 26th, 2012 at 07:14 pm

It has been an otherwise lazy Sunday, but I did get sufficient get-up-and-go to install both the curio cabinet and the towel holder in the downstairs bath...

You can see the curio cabinet in the mirror. I usually have seashells, bird's nests and wasp nests sitting there....I also have some sand dollars and sea urchins but they had gotten a little yellowed over time, so they're currently soaking in a bleach/water solution to whiten them again.

Too much stuff on the counter maybe? I've been experimenting with different decor. It feels like a whole new room.

After examining the towel rack I have, I realized there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, no scratches, nothing. So I decided to just keep what I have. And the white towel will do for now.

I'm very happy with it.

I have a ton of stress cracks around various doors and windows. I'd love to tackle them next, although it would mean painting over the whole wall, too. I saw online there's some tape you can buy at Home Depot which makes the job real easy. You basically just put the tape over the crack, then paint over it, and the crack just disappears. It's a little expensive from what I hear, but for someone who's not "handy" like me, it's worth it.

The bathtub could use both re-caulking between the tub and tiles, and also re-grouting between tiles, in the corner, where some cracks have appeared.

And 2 or 3 other indoor projects right off the top of my head.

    I do think there is a little too much on the counter, but it really is a gorgeous color theme. I might try moving either the flower pot or the basket onto the top of the toilet tank (whichever would fit there better). Maybe the airfreshner could be hidden in one of them?

    I took away the goblets. the air freshener is actually a plug-in so yeah, i could put the basket on top of the toilet maybe.

    A general rule for display is 3,5 or 7 depending on space/size ratio. Sage hand towels repeat color in flower display & soap label for example. Would it be inconvenient to move tissue box to commode since it's rectangular shaped while the other items are round-like.
