I painted the bathroom today and have decided to re-grout most of the tiles tomorrow. Next weekend my husband is going to help me put in a new window.
Now the window. This is a huge problem.
The bathrooms in this house are small like they were in houses that were built 60 years ago.
The bathroom I am working on, the one where I read my Threads magazines in the bath every night about 11:00 p.m. is right beside the front door.
I can think of no dumber place to put a bathroom with a window. Folks standing on the step are right beside your bathroom and at eye level.
To complicate matters even more the bathtub is right under that window and the whole bathtub area is tiled, ceiling included. This means there really isn't much to hang any window covering on except just around the window frame.
In the past I have tried several ideas and none of them were great. A custom made louvered blind that needed to be cleaned continually because it would get moldy, even with a good fan in that bathroom. Various curtains made out of rainwear strung on a wire suspension thingy but they looked awkward and didn't suit the space, but at least I wasn't exposing myself to the whole street.
I have thought of etched glass (how do you do that and what if I ruin the glass of a new window) and about every thing I could think of including beaded curtains. Of course whatever is on that window will get soaked too because it is in the line of fire when you have a shower. What were the builders' thinking?
OK I really appreciated the comments left after my last post and would welcome any ideas or suggestions.
This one beats me.
Oh and if anyone is wondering about that little white square on the bottom of my screen door it is keep the dogs from going right out through the screen. They have been sort of customizing the back and front screen doors into their own dog doors this summer.
