State of the State of Chaos

Answers to the previous post:

Ugh. I'm currently "working it out" with the contractor.

Remember how I mentioned the lavatory as one of my 875,293 projects? Feast your eyes on this mess:

I can' t recall if the terrible green picked by my husband came first or if it was the birch. I hand painted the trees when the birch wallpaper was all the rage. I'm over it 2 years ago. I do, however, still love my $30 Menard's knock-off of the Tom Dixon light. Love. Not moving. P.J. says he hates it but he gently dusted it off the other day on his own merit. I think he secretly likes it.

The floors are 3/4" wood with nailhead details. I have a four year old boy that uses this toilet. You can put two and two together. It's gotta go. You can see that we started taking off the base board already.

My mug shots! I still love these and they will stay in the next rendition. Food for thought when guests are on the toilet. I have more that need to go up but right now my favorite is Frank Sinatra. He was arrested in 1938 for carrying on with a married woman. I'm sure that man had STOR-ies. I painted the wall black because I had to reduce the awful green. I let the man go rogue and look what happens. Please note this room canNOT be applied to my design style as I hate it as much as the next person. It's merely in limbo.

So as you may have guessed the "broken house" is still in the same place but will be the new vanity in here. I'm going gold handles and fixtures. Holla!

I'm glad the mug shots are staying. They're genius. Maybe we need to add mine to the wall. Just a thought…

And P.S. P.J. totally loves your Menards knock off. Nothing says love like a man dusting. Or so I've heard.
