The Dectruction So Far...
Here's some pictures of the current destruction! I had wanted a corner bath, which proved nightmare-like trying to fit it in, and build around it, so we have opted for a lovely oval. It has a nice little shelves for things when it is a shower, and I think will work right well.
I needed to pick tile for the bit around the tub today, a new thing for me. I didn't want to buy an entire box, so options were limited to remnants, which got to be kind of fun. They are certainly odd, and in no way go with the floor exactly, but I think it is going to be lovely. I think. I sent the Head Destroyer over to talk to Tile Lady and see if my evil plan would work. I guess I will find out soon. I like surprises. It ought to end up a little bit of magic rocks all around the tub. If it works.
The tub was a surprise, I just told him what I wanted, and a price, and it showed up. Now I need to figure out what to paint the room, there's the wainscoating, currently pink, and the rest is ugly wallpaper, which is going. I found out too I can have new sconce lights, which I get to pick tomorrow. Yet another bit of being grownup I have never experienced.
I am going to put the fountain from the big Scream Porch up there for Lear and Mab. Venus and Mim aren't into it, and winter is coming anyway. I am really excited here about this new bathroom. If you can't tell. Another new room for the Spooky House!
Here's the Clawfoot tub, now in the dinning room. Of course. One of the things I loved about this house was that it HAD an old Clawfoot tub. My love for it until I took my first bath in it. Not so fun. I think it will go much better in the dinning room. With a Skeleton in it. The wee bookcase needs to move tho. Somewhere.
Venus and Mim seem to like it. Or not. Hard to tell. I kept plants in it when it was upstairs, it being no good for bathing. I'd like to have a couple more Skeletons, dressed in evening wear, standing around, sort of watching the Bathing Skelly. I can see it. Liven up the dinning room right nicely, I believe.
I am liking the room. Lear and Mab and I sat there for a while tonight, thinking about it. There's a lot more ROOM in it now. It's going to feel good. Bathrooms ought to be places of relaxing and refuge, I believe. Lear and Mab will have a small pool to play in, the plants will go back, on the floor now instead of in the tub. Whatever colour it ends up with enhance the relax-ness of it. And my new lights will be perfect.
Pity they can't be candelabras, but one can't have everything.
Or can one?
Love and Bathrooms,
