Iā€™m sure it has been a pain, but the result looks great. I hope you can enjoy it!

Hmm -- they used cement board instead of green board. I guess that's the way now.

If you learn Spanish, you sure can save a lot of money. I got a great deal on painting the house that way, but then in the evening, I couldn't remember to speak English.

This is the second thread in the forum on bathrooms. Remember the one where everyone measured their bathroom and then gave the dimensions. I didn't participate.

I have a picture I want to hang in the master bath, but my wife says the steam will ruin it. I don't believe it. What do you think??

Well, I like avocado green. It looks like a real good job. Nice quality ceiling fan too. I put in a monster fan in one of my bathrooms. I don't know why. I had to buy one, and it was there, and I had never seen anything like it. But that bathroom never gets used.

Cool! I hate remodeling, but I love it when all is done. I did this around 2001 and have since been quite pleased!

Depends how it's framed. If it hasn't been framed to be moisture proof then it probably won't survive. If you take it to a good custom framer they'd be able to ecapsulate it and/or frame it in a way that would resist the moisture of a bathroom.

What sort of picture is it -- watercolour/photo/print?

Looks good. I am doing a history of a local project here, and decided to have small sized but visible images (not thumbnails) and have the visitor click for the larger picture if they were interested further

It looks really good, Terrie. Congratulations.

Tell me ā€“ does your new toilet have a dual flush? It's hard to see from the photos.

I've had a dual flush since 1990, and thought I was a bit slow to introduce it at the time. They're enforced here these days, of course.

We could have dual-flush, but my plumber says why bother. If it is just yellow, let it mellow.

This is a small Mike Atkinson print of one of his water colors. An Israeli shepherd scene, rather than a western. I came across a similar made type print of a unicorn, and I think I'll try to frame that, and put it in there to see what happens. I think if I make it tight, it will do fine. I'll let you know on the next bathroom thread.

Thanks for the info on water tight frames.

Is there a paper cleaner for prints?? I happened upon a beautiful print of an 18th century picture, but I'm not certain about it. It's a river scene during a storm.
