One Door Down
We have a small issue in the kid’s bathroom.
Small issue literally. About eight inches small. That’s the distance between the two doors when they are open.
Oh let’s revisit that space shall we?!
The small bathroom is the shared toilet and shower between the room Will is in and the room Weston is going in very soon. It’s a Jack and Jill type set up where each bedroom has their own sink and mirror but share the world’s crampiest bathroom. In the beginning of our house’s journey, this space was a sponge-painted and chipping mess. Fifty eight bucks later, it became a happy place for bathtime with a sheet-turned-shower-curtain, a couple coats of paint, a little more storage and a fun bit of sticker art.
The problem was at bath time. I started bathing both boys in this smaller tub in the evening because it was faster and easier than in our big Jacuzzi tub in our master bathroom…and because both boys don’t fit in our kitchen sink Plus, I could sit on the floor and bathe them and still be able to reach Weston if he decided to see if the bottom of the tub smelled like strawberries. But with one of the doors open (I keep one open so that I can yell down at Jeremy who helps with tub-boy-extraction and to help with the cavernous screams from bursting my eardrums. Apparently boys like to yell and splash and scream loudly even at 7 months of age when plastic sharks are battling over the letter P.)….so with one door open, the room becomes somewhat cramped…and the ability to have both boys within reach becomes difficult.
So I decided that it was time for one to go. Namely this one…
Jeremy removed it for me in three milliseconds. I was all like….This is freaking awesome (say that like Macklemore with a radio edit for full effect).
So what’s the plan stan?!
Well, I’d like to put in a door that is like one of those old barn doors with sliding hardware. I loved how Emily in Country Living did hers with cheap hardware. All I would have to do is remove that weirdly located bath towel rod and have the door slide closed on the outside. It would be an awesome solution right?!
Yeah. So that’s where we are at. One door down. Ten thousand feet of trim to go…
p.s. This is Nana Camp week. Yup. The one and only. And last week was VBS. So I am feeling a bit like a taxi driver and so this weeks posts are gonna be smaller projects and little posts. You’ll get over it
