Finished up the vanities in the master bathroom at the condo this past weekend and all went well in putting in 5 new valves and 2 drains. I shocked even myself in that all “went as planned.” Unfortunately the struggle began when mounting the polymer rather than wood molding across the back to top off the bead board and create a clean edge against the less than perfect back wall. The photo above shows the creative clamping when using adhesive rather than damaging the molding with nails. It actually looked pretty good “until” I started to add a bead of silicone caulking to fill the tiny gap and prevent any water/dirt from the marble sink tops and behind the wall. For some reason the 1 year old silicone would not bead smoothly and balled up … it was nearly impossible to clean back off and reapply new. Oh, well … I guess this proves I’m still an amateur?
The exterior painting project that has been completed on a few of the other buildings has started while I was in Florida and unfortunately that meant that I had to keep the hurricane shutters down and park my car in a different lot. Oh well, at least I was able to supervise a little bit.
Archiving a “before painting” photo below with the windows all taped with plastic.
