The Cool House: Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends

Nothing much going on in the bathroom remodel department; the ceiling in the boys' bath got a coat of primer on Saturday and I've put four coats of stain on the window, touched up the door frame and the stained the piece of molding on the girls' vanity. Luckily, Cabot dark walnut matches the door and the vanity so that's what I used on the window- it makes my life simpler.
I ordered an undermount sink from Toto to match the toilet in the girls' bath but I'm still waiting for the silestone samples I ordered from e-counters before I can finish up the vanity. I think I've chosen a faucet that will match both the round George Kovacs bathroom sconce and the linear Lew's Hardware pull. It's the Stillness faucet by Kohler, sort of modern but not too cool. As it's an 8" center spread and an American brand the plumber should be really happy with me.
Obviously, we are going to miss another deadline this week. There is no way either bath will be operational by the end of March and even though the plumber is coming Friday to hook up the water and put in the toilet in the boys' bath, the shower doors won't be ready for at least two weeks after that. So that puts us past Easter too. Seriously, I'm shooting for Memorial Day.
