I have lots and lots of little projects that I've been working on that will culminate into a big project. Does that make sense?
Instead of dragging it out one at a time I'll give you a few little ones at a time. Then, when I get
You'll be able to guess what room this is right off the bat, I'm sure. If not...well, I really hope there's none of you that don't get it because then I have to make fun of you for being stooopid. And that's not nice.
There's a really long and boring story about the why and wherefore (<---is that even a word?) we ended up having to replace the floor in the boys'/guest bathroom for the second time in as many years. (crap. i just told you the room, now, didn't i? oh well.)
But that's kinda where the story starts. While replacing the floor, I decided I needed to just do it up the way I wanted to in the beginning and just never did.
May as well break the legs on two birds with one rock, right? <--- that's Big Boy's way of completely mixing up 2 metaphors he heard. Cute, huh?
When we first moved into our house about 5 1/2 years ago, I thought the bathroom fixtures were awesome.
That's them. Well, part of them. The two ends that hold the towel bar.
All of the bathroom fixtures were two tone. Gold and silver. For some reason I thought they were classy. After 5 1/2 years of looking at them, I was sick of em.
I wanted new ones, but if you've priced bathroom fixtures lately, you know they can be notsocheap.
I had this brilliant idea. I was gonna spray paint em.
You all know how much I love to spray paint. Notsomuch.
So I went to Home Depot and looked around in the paint section for a
And the heavens opened and the angels sang. And I fell in love.
I brought it home and stared at it for a couple days before I had the nerve to try it.
I sanded the stupid fixtures down and got all the old paint off of them from not taping them right last time we painted the bathroom.
Then I slapped some of that hammered metal stuff on em.
This is after one coat. See the difference between the old pimped out one and the "new" hammered metal one?? Love.
Guess what? I'm actually searching the house looking for stuff to paint with this stuff.
Here's something I found.
The cabinet that goes above the toilet.
I didn't want the entire thing done in metal, so I taped the middle off and painted the rest black.
Then I ripped the tape off and painted the middle medal. Ha. Middle medal...that sounds funny for some reason.
Finished product. Don't look too close. I had an unfortunate incident with wet spray paint.
Cursing Crafter Rating: They both qualify for SCC = Single Curse Craft. They were super easy. But right now I'm irritated I didn't stick a towel on that towel bar since I'm staring at it.
Ah well. I'll get there. One day I'll have the final review.
Next up? Framing the mirrors. I'll show you tomorrow.
