With all the plasterboard up in the bathroom, it was time to plaster. Well actually not real plaster, more like faux plaster. We are using a mix of drywall compound with sand added to give the look of plaster. Since I’m not a plaster “pro”, this mix was a whole lot easier to work with. We are very happy with the results and when it all dries, Jeff will paint the walls and ceiling. We also taped and sealed the edges and seams of the “Schluter Board” around the tub surround. Tile is going in next weekend.
We have been saving this beautiful “salvaged” french door for years to use in our house. It’s new home will be as a pocket door to the guest bathroom. After a good sanding and refinishing, it looks great. And yes, before you make a comment about the glass, we will be obscuring it to block the view, but not the natural light coming into the bathroom.
With the “plastering” done in the bathroom, it was time to tackle another fun project. Using these really cool aluminum shakes (made from recycled cans), we are creating an even cooler soffit in the kitchen. In the picture above, just to the right of my hand, you can see part of the LED light strip that is hidden behind the overhanging edge of the shakes. The lighting effect is phenomenal!… and super energy efficient!
