Happenings at the Lake (Remodel Update) February 16, 2015
Greetings, from sunny, warm, Lake Tahoe!
If you have connections with the Rain and/or Snow gods, please put in a good word for us, here in California. We’ll take either!
The apartment has a separate entrance, fireplace, bath, little fridge, microwave, coffee pot, etc., and a stellar view of the lake. I plan to make it “our” room. Mr. Wonderful, as Bob likes to be called, is building a great window seat, with storage, at the lake side window.
This little room required some demo work, opening up the shower, with glass and raising the ceiling. I think walk-in showers were kind of new in the 50’s, but this one was like walking into a dark, tiled box!
I asked Pavel, the tile guy, to wrap the interior shower tile, around the outside wall of the shower. This isn’t a big bathroom and I didn’t want “little Johnnie”, to do anything permanent, should he get distracted, while doing his business!
In the middle bedroom, upstairs, I used General Finishes Black Gel Stain, from the shop, to really darken the wooden windows. The molding that hasn’t been installed yet, around the windows, with be a creamy white. Vanilla Shake, by Dunn Edwards. It’s the same color as on the (used to be darker) wood paneled walls. I’ve seen it done before and sure hope it turns out as good in real life, as it is in my head!
That’s all for now. I hope you’ve have a wonderful, relaxing long weekend!
