We've been living in our house for over 5 years now and it's gotten to be time to do a little maintenance around the place.
The master bath has some mostly cosmetic fixes that I'm ready to tackle.
The sink and tub surrounds are made of teak and their finishes are in pretty bad shape.
Just like a boat they need to be stripped and resealed.
Either way I'm sure will trash the walls and require a new coat of paint. I'm going to stick with the same color but might also paint out the ceiling.
Remember all that lath that Ethan and I salvaged over the summer?
I'm planning on paneling the top part of the shower stall with it.
When we built the house I didn't tile to the skylight because it saved me about 100 sq ft of material. I can't remember what I paid per sq ft of tile but this decision probably saved me anywhere from 600 to 1000 dollarinees so it felt like the right decision to make. That skylight is like 12 or 13 feet up there so it was a surprising amount of tile to go all the way up.
I have mostly seen the lath used in its rough form as paneling. I like the way these designers/stylist use it here.
I am finding, however, that I am really liking the way the aged wood looks when it is planed. (I have a planer which makes cleaning up the wood to this state a cinch.)
