Bathroom Update 2023 - Part 6



Well, it's been a little while, but the bathroom refresh is finally complete.  In the last post, we had finished the wallpapering, and were putting the accessories back in place.  All that was left was a couple of little details which we'll ill wrap up here, in turn wrapping up the bathroom update project of 2023.  Let's get into it!

The New Lights 

I was never a really big fan of the old bathroom light.  But during the 2002 bathroom update, that was actually the best light we could find.  At least that's how I remember it.  It might have been the best we could afford at that time!

But it was a darn sight better than what we've been living with these last few months!

Anyway, this is actually a nice light, all chrome with the white globes, and goes perfectly with the feel of the bathroom motif.  And it lights up the bathroom quite nicely!  Not only that - this is maybe the first light that went in with no trouble and took just a couple minute!

Shower Fan Cover Spruce-Up

During the 2002 update, we installed a shower fan.  It doesn't sound like a big deal, but what a difference that's made!  Well, the plastic cover had yellowed over time and obviously we couldn't have that.  

I looked for a new cover, but they were kind of builder-grade ugly.  So I figured, like with so many other things, I could just paint it.  

I gotta say - it turned out quite nice, like brand new!

Moving In

That done, all that was really left was to move back in!  The shelves were up, toothbrushes, shaving stuff...

The towel and other stuff tower went in, which is kind of the final sign that the project was really complete!

And There We Are! 

And with that - the bathroom has been updated and looks good!  Now we're getting older so let's hope we have time to have to do it again --- someday!  But for the decade or so, the bathroom at 173 looks good again!

Hey - thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
