Again To Work! Extra Grasp Rest room Progress…


Nicely, I needed to get again to work yesterday. After our wonderful week final week (I up to date Friday’s publish yesterday to share the remainder of our week), it was so exhausting to change gears and get again to work on the grasp rest room. However I pressured myself, and bought fairly a bit achieved. I’m nonetheless specializing in the bathroom space and attempting to get the partitions achieved in there in order that I can transfer on to constructing the cupboard that may go towards the far wall in that space.

In the event you’ll bear in mind, my ultimate choice relating to the partitions on this space was so as to add the judges paneling fashion of wainscoting like I’ve within the hallway rest room…

Besides that on this space, the paneling would go from flooring to ceiling. In the primary space of the toilet, I’ll add this identical fashion of wainscoting, but it surely’ll solely cowl the decrease half of the partitions beneath the blue higher partitions.

I had already connected all the boards to the partitions earlier than final week, so I spent yesterday afternoon attaching all the trim that varieties the panels. For this, I used base cap molding, and I connected it alongside the sides of every of the boards.

This space is fairly small, making it tough to take footage in right here, however that is what the panels on this wall appeared like as soon as they have been all trimmed out, however earlier than all the ending steps — wooden filling, sanding, caulking, priming, and portray.

I needed to get slightly artistic across the water provide for the bathroom. As soon as all the paneling has been completed, I’ll add hinged spherical wall plate (is that referred to as an escutcheon?) between that water provide valve and the wall to cowl up the outlet.

It’s nonetheless wanting fairly tough…and dingy. As soon as it’s painted, it’ll be the identical shade because the trim surrounding the mural, which you’ll see within the photograph under. It’s fairly a bit brighter and whiter than the paneling seems now.

In fact, this again wall will largely be lined with a cupboard that I’m going to construct. I had initially deliberate on doing a built-in cupboard overlaying your complete wall. However I later modified my thoughts and determined to construct a freestanding cupboard that may be a separate piece of furnishings. That manner, if I ever need this space for one thing else, the cupboard could be moved out and used someplace else.

After which on the wall the place the bathroom goes, I simply did one giant body relatively than separating it into three frames. The location of the bathroom didn’t permit for 3 evenly spaced frames, and since that wall doesn’t actually present from the primary space of the toilet (you’ll be able to solely see a small sliver of it if you happen to’re standing proper within the doorway between the toilet and the house fitness center), I’ve one other thought for this wall.

So right here’s a basic thought of what a cupboard will seem like on that far wall of the bathroom space…

My cupboard received’t be pure wooden, although. Since I’ll be utilizing the French doorways that I took off of the pantry to construct the cupboard, and since they’re already painted (and so they’re pine), I’m simply going to have to color the cupboard. I used to be initially considering of portray the cupboard a lightweight pink from the mural, however I believe I’ll keep on with a shade that’s related (only a tad darker) than the blue wall shade, after which I need to paint this one panel one of many pinks from the mural…

I don’t need something too vivid or saturated, so I believe I’ll go for a pink like this flower…

After which that pink will function a really fairly backdrop for what I plan to placed on that wall. However that’s a narrative for one more day. 🙂 For now, I’ve a ton of wooden filling, sanding, and caulking to do!
