Fixer-Upper

The best thing about your circa 1962 bathroom faucet kicking the bucket,



forcing you to the realization that you HAVE to buy yourself a new bathroom faucet, whether or not you just spent the annual GDP of some smaller third world country, or, to put it another way, your entire income tax return, getting a dangerous tree removed from your backyard,



is that if you're going to buy a new faucet you can't afford, damn it, then you might as well buy a SEXY new faucet. Maybe even one that, despite LOOKING circa 1940, actually ACTS like it was made in the 21st century.

So there.

(It helps if the new faucet is on sale.)

I like the new faucet. My house has some of those old ones.

Hm, I couldn't see the pictures today.
We thought about new taps (sorry, but I'm Canadian and where I come from, we say 'tap'), but realized since we actually know how to paint (as opposed to installing new taps), we should spend the money on paint instead.
Alas...four months into this 'project' I think we should've gotten taps.

Ooh, pretty. It's not old looking. It's vintage. And looking vintage while working modern is a total coups, especially since you got it on sale.

Apparently multiple people could not see the pictures today, and yet many other people could. I am not sure what is going on. Let me know if this problem persists and I'll contact Blogger about it.

Home ownership can really suck, sometimes.

And, oooh! Pretty!
