My life is so glamorous. If I had only known when I painted that first bird house that my career path would take me to a thousand bathrooms I might have hesitated.
Have I mentioned that guest bathrooms are one of the most highly decorated rooms in houses today? And rightfully so. They are generally smaller (therefore cost less) than other areas, and it's the one place you know most guests will visit. They SHOULD look nice.
I'm always appreciative of a clean bathroom when I've come to paint it. I've had a few that made me gag as I've had to reach back around the potty to complete the job. It's like hugging a toilet and it's not that pleasant.
Fortunately, the fuzzy tank covers of years past are no longer much in vogue. If you think about it, why would we want to trap every bathroom germ on the toilet couture? Sure, it might look cuddly, but it's not the brightest decorating idea around. I'm down to just one lid cover and the small rugs at the base. Other than that, my potties go au naturale, and they seem to enjoy their freedom.
Today's Small Thing is something that I am loathe to do. That is to wash the bathroom rugs and tank/lid covers. I dislike this job, but it is a necessary evil in the fight against bathroom germs. I KNOW mine need it, and I'd be willing to bet that a good number of you are right with me on this one.
POINTS: 40 for laundering the bathroom fuzzy things.
