I Blame...

..."This Old House". The PBS series (circa 1986) with host Bob Vila, was the rage when we were looking to buy our first home. It looked simple on TV, but those romantic notions that swirled through our heads as we signed the contract on a "fixer upper", soon slammed into the crumbling plaster wall of reality. Kids came and money flew. Now our 1920's era bungalow has a multiple personality disorder. Some rooms are finished to contemporary standards and others, not so much. Our bathroom had become the main eyesore, (I once saw a mushroom growing behind the toilet). The past 12 days have brought that to an end. Thanks to the experts, (these days I am just a go-fer and trash hauler) we now have a full functioning "green" bathroom.

Creativity and painting take a hit during a renovation, art posts will resume soon.
