Teaching An Old Dog New Tricks

G.O. + our dogs, Dory + Chloe

G.O. + our dogs, Dory + Chloe

Even though my blog is still in its infancy,  I’ve already managed to poke fun at G.O. at least twice.  I mock because I love, though!

The truth is that without him, my decor is nothing.  He’s always able to do anything we (meaning I) desire, house-wise.   Am I saying he’s always on board when I think of a new project?  Sadly, no.   Even after all these years, he’s still dumbfounded by my (crazy to him) ideas.

Here it is!  G.O.'s perfect choice for our vintage bath!

Here it is! G.O.’s perfect choice for our vintage bath!

Actually, sometimes he does say or do something that lets me know that he’s playing for Team Kay, that he likes what I like!  In late 2006, we bought a 20’s-era bungalow + began a whirlwind re-do.  We gutted the main bathroom + re-did it in a vintage style.

While shopping for shower fixtures, we slowly scanned the selection at Home Depot.  Without a word from me, G.O.  grabbed the perfect set + placed it in our cart!  Victory!

Way back in '06, this tile was a rare find, so we splurged.  Now it's sold at Lowes.

I love the coordinating COLD + HOT shower curtain rings from Restoration Hardware.

    Where on earth did you find that shower faucet lever????

      Oh, dear, Kayla.
      In my ineptitude, I failed to approve this comment! My bad.
      Anyway, that shower faucet lever is American Standard, + we found it at Home Depot, of all places!
      Natch, they don’t have it NOW . . . nor can I find it on American Standard’s website.
      However, I do have a new bathroom faucet company crush that I’m going to share with the class soon.
      Elizabethan Classics
      I ordered a bathroom sink faucet of theirs just the other day!
      When it comes time for me to shop for shower supplies, I’ll definitely see what they have to offer!
      Thanks for reading + commenting!
      Sorry about my blunder!

        My heart is broken! That faucet would have been PERFECT for my vintage black/white bathroom (which has the original circa 50’s version of your Lowes floor tile!!). Thank you, Kay, and love your bath!!
