Bathroom Touch-up

The bead board in the bathroom needed a fresh coat of paint
and I 'fixed' a few much-needed small repairs.
Now let me tell you...
I can paint little things like four foot bead board walls,
(my sis-ta's are GOOD at that but not me...nope - i missed out when paintingthewall jobwas handed out!)
but i'm not a painter of  walls and ceiling (i'm too sloppy!),
 but Mr D is patient and does it right!

- the before's and after's -

When the bathroom was rennovated, the wrong caulking was used and it looked like this...
and no matter how many times i primed & painted, it would seep through.
So annoying!
Then I got the bright idea to spackle over it and it worked!
Oh glory!

There was this...
and this.
Now there's this...
and this.
I used the same caulking method.
Do I love success?!

And the radiator?
Oh my!
(need i say more than that this is beside the loo?! don't think so!)
Oh-la!
It's almost beautiful!

I even painted the outlet covers...
and switched lamp shades.
Oh yeah!
(it REALLY doesn't take much to make me happy!)

I took away...
to simplify.

Now i'm working on this project...
 Later-r-r-r, people, late-r-r-r!

...blessedness!
