School Light

So, we’ve got this guest bathroom. The right side of it is almost done, and the left side of it is…well…

Work in there came to a halt sometime last year, but we did install a ($25) schoolhouse-style light fixture the other day, and it’s so nice to finally have a light on the ceiling in there.

Besides the light fixture and ceiling, that side of the room hasn’t really changed all that much over the past few years. It started out like this…

…and it currently looks like this…

(The tub and toilet are down below where the pictures cut off.)

Regarding the hole: Let’s just say I got a liiiiittle antsy to start working on that wall while my husband was at the store one day. And when I get antsy, sometimes I get hammer happy.

Please tell me I’m not the only one that gets hammer happy.

Better yet, please tell my husband.

PS- We found the wood planks underneath the drywall on the ceiling and the winner of the herb crate giveaway is:

Congrats, Vicki! I’ll be in touch with you shortly!

    Your hammer-happy moment reminds me of the time that a friend of mine decided to install a window in a bedroom at the cottage. She cut the hole and then couldn’t figure out why she couldn’t push it out. She soon discovered that there was a tree mere inches away from the wall in the middle of the window! Oops. It was lesson learned to at least plan a few steps ahead at a time.

    The fact that you found those wood planks under there just makes me think that your house was waiting just FOR YOU TWO to come along and discover all of its hidden gems. I tend to think houses have feelings and thoughts, lol, and it warms their souls to be loved and cared about.

    I hope my house feels that way with every change we make, too. I also hope she LOVES the new faucet, windows and doors we just installed in her kitchen this past week. 😀

    Well I got hammer happy when day while the hubby was gone. He told me that he thought we had electrical in a wall by our front door and I wanted the wall gone. I took off the ledge on top of the wall and I could see down inside. No electric that baby came down really fast. It was fun and led to all kinds of other problems like the floor where the wall used to be. But I got a new floor from it. Yeah!!!
