Here I am crossing “bathroom” off my list (with stain-stained fingers). Please note proposed completion date of June 2010. If I weren’t unrealistically optimistic about the time frame of doing stuff around the house, I’d never start a project, and hence never finish a project.

And here are photos of the stained and linseed oiled door to the bathroom. I need to get a key for the lock and do something about the door rosettes (they’re kind of rusty, so i may paint rather than polish them). The inside of the door has a lot of varnish that I stained over as I just couldn’t get it off. It gives it an interesting effect (called good-ah-freakin’-nuff, registered trademark of Gudenov Construction, Inc.). But overall, really not so shabby. Kind of shabby, but not so shabby. And what’s best? It’s DONE!!!!!!!!

    Thanks! What a relief.
    It’s Skunkie’s turn for a nice bath in the tub — something she does not enjoy one little bit. She does this pathetic tail between her legs stance while being bathed, then runs around like crazy, and does this whole theatrical performance of drying herself off by rubbing her whole body — cheek to tail — side to side. It’s Tony-worthy!

    Thanks! I love it too. Is it weird to just stand in my own bathroom and look around admiringly? If so, color me weird 🙂

    I got a frame at Michael’s today (60% off with coupons) for the Beardsley poster I found on ebay, so just have to figure out how to hang it, and it will further enhance the beauty.
