The lovely flooring was added sometime in the golden age of the 1980's. What we have now, after many poor remodel choices, is a tiny bathroom that terrifies visitors and smells like a barn**. {this is the flappy ceiling above the toilet area.} Smells like a barn, you ask? {the remains of the first layer of flooring} I know, and it's not pretty. {**Let me just say that all my vehemence towards the floor in no way reflects my excitement about the project, or the gratefulness to those who made it possible.} So all of that basically describes my week. {window trim} I didn't tell you anything about the medicine cabinet, did I?
