counteract with cookies
certainly, this is not the most professional workspace out there. it is actually an accident (or two!) waiting to happen. cookies were eaten (by accident) and okay, yes, i spilled my coffee. if it is really all about the process, then i guess the term process is up for interpretation. this photo was taken while finishing up the corkboard back for the counter in the bathroom. at first, i thought of using cork tiles, but i am glad that i cut a bulletin board down instead.
if you do mosaicwork, please wear plastic gloves or wool mittens (just kidding!). i seem to always forget to put them on. my hands are finally back on the road to recovery. bits of the original green tiles were incorporated, plus my favorite vintageplate & olive dish. that really isn't a sinkdrain, but the top of a vintage snuff canister that says 'copenhagen satisfies'. my favorite part about this counter is the mirror edging. it brings the disco ball back to the bathroom.
here is a peek to the cabinet above this niche. i am picking up other shelves this morning. the wrong size were shipped...so doubleyeah on really using my new cabs. i called last week to doublecheck that i was still on my tileguy's list and thankfully he can do the tilework in the green bathroom in june. then, i can have my sink installed and we can brush our teeth in there again.
this week: learn how to either rewire a lamp or add a little pluggything on an existing cord
