  • Where should you live in Canada? (via Paperback Writer) (I got Prince Edward Island, “one of Canada’s three Maritime provinces and the smallest province in the nation, is best known as the idyllic setting of Anne of Green Gables. It’s a truly beautiful and quaint place, especially if you love beaches, wide open spaces, and abundant world class seafood.”

Linkity remodels

Randonymity
Before
You can’t tell from the picture, but that toilet was very low and also almond-colored. The light switch for the main bathroom light was a dimmer switch (one of eight (!!!), now all replaced), which made the lights buzz. It’s not easy to take pictures of my wee bathroom, but… Here’s what it used to look like:

While that vessel sink looked great, it was just too low for me. Plus the vanity developed numerous cracks over the dry winter, so the sink wasn’t level anymore and started to leak. Also, the paint on the walls doesn’t look that dark in these pictures, but combined with the tiny frosted glass single-candelabra bulb light fixture (on the wall above the toilet, not in frame)… I could barely see myself in the mirror! Also, the grout was an assortment of different colors – red-brown, light gray, dark gray.

After
I sealed all the grout using a medium-gray tinted sealer (tinted sealer looks great, but it is sooooo much work), had the walls repainted a much lighter gray-green (SW Rare Gray), had the low almond toilet replaced with a “comfort height” white toilet, had the low sink and vanity replaced with a taller but less wide sink and vanity, had the ineffective single-candelabra bulb light fixture replaced with a three-bulb fixture, switched out the (black) dimmer switches and a white, now black, GFCI outlet… Much better now!

  • Hey, there’s actually going to be a contest next week. :)
  • If linkity seems a bit sparse this week, it’s because I’m tired (from a thunderstorm that started really early this morning and kept me awake) and a bit frazzled (I have a handyman here this week to do a partial bathroom remodel).

Reading Update
Breakaway: The Inside Story of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Rebirth by Andrew Comte. Good look at the decline and rise of the Pittsburgh Penguins, from 2004 through the beginning of the 2010 season when the new arena opened. I started reading this shortly before GM Ray Shero was fired and finished it the day before Coach Dan Bylsma was fired (although after Shero was fired, I assumed Bylsma would go, too). So I read this from an odd, sort of cynical place…
