|You can't imagine how much I love to look at this beautiful tilework - the real and the faux!|
17. Spray painted ALOT of things "oil rubbed bronze." And when I say ALOT here, it's not like the claim that I painted a lot of things white. I really did spray paint practically everything to coordinate with the new metal. Originally everything was chrome or was painted white. So I stripped the white paint from the heat register and the hardware on the medicine cabinet and spray painted that. I also sprayed odd things like the toilet pipe and the door threshold. I must have gone though about 10 cans of spray paint - well, maybe 7.
|These lovely candle stick - or candle stands - were a gift|
from my mom to Michele and I years ago. They were originally
silver/steel, but now look lovely in oil rubbed bronze with copper highlights.
|This register had about 6 layers of paint on it. Once removed it was a very|
bright chrome, which, while lovely, didn't match at all, so shake, shake, and spray away!
|I love how the little bee hive shoots light out across the ceiling and wall.|
OK, the final five and the finished bathroom reveal will come tomorrow. Plus, you'll find out the MOST exciting thing I did over the last five weeks! Oh boy was it thrilling!
