One little task that kept me busy recently, was I decided to "update" the master bathroom in our house. Although there were many advantages to marrying my sweet buckethead (he can reach the top shelf, he's a human heating pad and he's a pretty good kisser, too) one of the coolest bonuses was that I moved out of my 700 square foot apartment into a beautiful home. However, since he has lived in this house we now share for going on 9 years, sometimes I feel like I need some of my touches in it to make it truly home to me.
But trying out your creativity for the first time on a very expensive house, can be a little intimidating, not to mention kind of stupid. It would be one thing if I hadn't been a wall texturizing virgin, but reading a "how-to" instruction guide via google as my only preparation, may not have been wise. Regardless of Buckethead's fear we would end up with a disaster on our hands and an unfixable problem on the walls of his largest investment, he agreed to let me spread my creative wings and fly.
After the taping alone took 4 hours, I was starting to highly regret my decision. However, pressing on, I spent the next two weeks stripping wall paper, texturizing, painting, tearing down mirrors, making 4 trips to different stores to find mirrors and hanging mirrors (all with Buckethead's help, of course). Below it the result of our hard work.
