The bad news is:
The bathroom fairies did not paint the bathroom while I was gone - imagine that!
So back to the grind with me.
Lots of prep must be done before painting....holes here, caulk there, mold on the ceiling, etc.
Today I washed the walls with bleach and Dawn. I sanded previous patches, scraped things I had not seen before and found - yikes - crumbling wall board (due to improper previous caulking).
I had planned to get to the painting today - but I still have holes to re-spackle - (as the spackle dries it shrinks and I need to re-fill the holes [with sanding and priming in between]). I have caulked where water is not involved, I have gone to the big box store to purchase waterproof caulk (so that I may caulk where water is involved), new switchplates @ $6.00 a pop (what was I thinking?) and I have even purchased a new light for the ceiling (I should never have cash....).
I hope to have pictures when the project is done (but don't set you heart on it!).
Let's pretend that's me and that's light blue, light green and white paint I am so attractively spreading around.
You guys are great!
