Small Bathroom Makeover

We accomplished more work in the small bathroom today.  Peter got the rest of the tin nailed up along the ceiling line.

We then got the wood strips nailed up to create the board and batten effect.  (You'll remember I used this same technique, board and batten, in 2009 in the bedroom makeover.)  I liked what it did for that room and I know it will give architectural interest to this otherwise uninteresting space.

I really enjoy working on projects with Peter...we have a good "rhythm and flow" of working with each other and can ordinarily grasp the end result that we want to see achieved. 
Peter always tells me, "If you can draw it, I can build it."  Sometimes I have to explain a little more (he can't always translate my picture) but working together we usually end up with a better product or completed project. 

I think this small bathroom will be another successful collaboration of effort!

I patched the holes from the old towel bars, patched the nail holes, and I'm ready for coat one of paint...primer!
More work to come, but I think it will go fairly quickly...stay the course! (I have so many other projects buzzing around in my head!)

Till tomorrow...

Lookin' good! I know it is going to turn our great. My husband and I work well together in the same way. I think I take that for granted until I hear my friends tell me their horror stories. Happy New Year.
