Best seat in the house...

“The flush toilet, more than any single invention, has 'civilized' us in a way that religion and law could never accomplish.”
-Thomas Lynch

Rob's big project for the week was remodeling the toilet stall in our master bathroom. What started out as "let's check and make sure this stain on the floor doesn't mean a leak" turned into  "while we're at it, let's install new flooring, paint the walls, and rebuild the toilet itself."

The process via my Instagram feed: 1. It's fun watching them do all of the work; 2. A hair dryer works wonders; 3. The trash pile is growing; 4. Our toilet's in the middle of the bathroom; 5. Painting white trim white # ohtheexcitement; 6. No wonder I feel like im going crazy... I've been staring at a blue wall and sniffing paint fumes for two days straight.

It helps to see where we started. Just a nothing-too-special little room, with khaki walls, a stained linoleum floor, and a broken foam toilet seat.

And, here's what it looks like now. Amazing, huh? Hardwood-like vinyl floors, fresh new trim paint, blue walls (paint color: Olympic Smoke Blue), fixtures spray painted oil-rubbed bronze, and a brand-new toilet seat.

Not only does it have an updated look, but it looks pretty fancy inside the tank, too.. Rob installed a dual-flush mechanism to save water... press the flush handle up for liquid waste and down for solid waste. Hooray for a high-tech toilet!
