That little room ate up so many hours.
The ceiling and all the walls had new drywall. Fresh primer and paint. I had some color angst but finally settled on Benjamin Moore’s “Castelton Mist” HC-1 – sort of a toned down chartreuse, with “Nantucket Grey” HC-111 trim:
There was new antique trim around the door.
The pipes in the corner got boxed in.
A ceramic tile floor was applied, properly.
Antique baseboards and quarter round went on.
The toilet returned.
The antique marble sink, with the chrome deco stand (a Kijiji score – $ 30.00 !!!) was installed. The antique taps were fine.
The heat was connected. A reproduction cast iron vent I bought for something else turned out to fit.
Honestly, it seemed like a miracle. A very labour intensive miracle.
