Remember this guy?
HOwever, a little spray paint works wonders in the area of updating. So, I went to Lowes and picked out black spray paint, but not just any ol' black - Enter "Hammered" black.
I forgot to get a close up but here is the TP holder
To add to our ever growing craziness, I also started on the hallway going down to the basement. First, I had to tear off the very 80's chic rainbow V design and specklish yellow that covered it top to bottom. This stuff was not as happy to come off the walls as the shells in the bathroom however.
After getting all the paper off, I had to take a rag and a putty knife to all the glue. 3 hours later and a nice clorox bath, she was ready to be filled. Because we had taken out the saloon doors sorry Johnny Depp, you will no longer find a western bar in the basement! There were huge chunks missing that came out with the beams that held the doors. Filling them was quite a challenge, but once filled, dried and sanded they look alright for a basement wall.
And just because there wasn't enough of a mess in our house, KC promptly put a HOLE in our wall this last evening! Crazy, I know!
But ... doesn't it look amazing??!?! Minus all the broken drywall, wires, and beams ;) We have been wanting to open this up for a while and are really happy with the look already!
and thus ensues our renovation chaos!
