More Bathroom Excitement! (Um.)

This weekend Ant and I got back to working on the condo (a little bit)!

Ant fixed the bathroom faucet and installed the new handle trim in the bathroom. If you recall, the trim I originally ordered didn't fit because it was the wrong brand. So I ordered a new handle and tub spout for $38 from Amazon. It was listed as "refurbished" but so far I don't see anything wrong with it.

Here's the old tub trim (notice the purplish picture due to the fact that the bathroom used to be totally purple!):

And here's the new handle! I know it looks weird because the new tub spout isn't on yet. That's because it's a bit big for the space - the spout is really close to the tub. So Ant and I are going to do something magical to it, like grind it down or something? I don't know, but Ant does. So we will do that sometime in the near future. Then things won't look as nickel versus chrome mis-matchy.

I also changed out the way towels hang out in the bathroom. I used to use an over-the-door hanger like this, but the towels were always in my way:

So I bought two towel racks at Home Goods for $10/each, and now things look like this: 

And overall it's just much less annoying. Plus Martha Stewart did it, so it must be right!

Only with home decorating though. As far as anything else, particularly in regard to the interests of the American shareholder, do not listen to Martha. Thank you.
