I can’t think of any sorrow in the world
that a hot bath wouldn’t help, just a little bit.

[Susan Glasee]

BathToo bad I didn’t have a BEFORE photo to put with this. I’d found myself apologizing every time a visitor asked to use my bathroom so I’ve spent the past three weeks sprucing it up with the help of my handy lady. She did plaster repairs, painting and anything that required the use of power tools. I did the cleaning, wallpaper and trim. Since my house is 80 years old, the ceilings are high. We painted the ceiling and about 14″ down the wall navy blue. Then I hung white wallpaper that is textured like beaded board, and edged it with wood trim. One of my favorite things about the makeover is the new curved shower rod—no more sticking to the shower curtain.

I like the bath so much that I’m toying with the idea of doing my kitchen in a similar manner. That style of wallpaper was very easy to hang and my kitchen is as sad looking as my bath used to be.

Meanwhile, I’ve been knitting lace and will post photos soon. As I knit, I’ve been thinking about knitting a lace curtain for the bath. I could put some of that frosted treatment on the window for privacy. On the other hand, I found white lace curtains with light houses on them. Their price is reasonable so I have to think this over.
