So, this weekend I thought that we might be able to re-hab the HALLWAY BATHROOM before our house guest arrived just in time for ATHENS POPFEST 2010. Boy, were we ambitious! Of course, we didn't get it done in time...but at least we got a head start for the next house guest that comes to stay. The hallway bathroom is the one room at RANCHO COCOA that we dreaded fixing up the most - it's so jacked-up! One of the previous owners painted over all this PINK TILE and covered it with drab MATTE GRAY PAINT. Stripping paint off tile sucks, and getting paint out of grout sucks even more. It's gonna take several more days to get the rest of the paint off before we even think about re-painting the walls...
After making my homage to street artist SPACE INVADER, we tackled the tile around the air conditioning vent. We even had to scrape paint off the TOILET PAPER HOLDER. Needless to say, it was really hard to get the paint off that. After getting most of the paint off, Missy followed up with TILE CLEANER and a scrubby sponge...
