Bathroom Remodel: Days 13-15

Filed under: Kitties, Mini Bath — maryparadox @ 1:26 am

A wonderful carpenter came and helped us pick out the last bits of trim, then installed them over the next three days (he was sick part of the time).

The trim in the living room:


We got really lucky and found almost the exact same chair rail!


The carpenter took the trim all the way across the wall, so it looks seamless. The room is really starting to come together.

The trim outside the bathroom:


The trim around the door is actually two separate pieces, and came from multiple stores -- all so it would match the existing trim.


The picture rail in the hallway. This is reusing the piece that was originally in this area -- except it wasn't long enough so two 2" chunks are mismatched.

Trim inside the bathroom, so far:


The picture rail in the bathroom sits just above the step, essentially masking it and making it look intentional.

The hardwood floor replacement, including the inlay, which still needs to be sanded:


Amazing. The carpenter even matched the types of wood.


Apparently this is oak and cherry. It still needs to be sanded and sealed.

I’m currently in Lviv, Ukraine for work. It’s 3am and I totally can’t sleep even though I already took a Lunesta. <sigh>


While packing for the trip I turned around and found this.
