I’m all about doing the necessary things to get toilets reinstalled these days. Runner-up to the shower, it’s the happiest thing about the bathroom at the moment. True story: We were relinquished to that cold freestanding basement toilet for 37 days, which was about 36.75 days longer than I actually expected it to be. But I’m more than a little bit tired of talking about toilets, and the basement toilet, the fact that it’s not heated down there there, and the fact that it’s the middle of winter in Rochester, NY, so I’m glad we made enough progress on Day 12 to install the throne before bedtime.
The real progress made leading up to that precious install was with the trim. The new bathroom baseboard is customized to flow with the rest of the 1940’s trim in the house unlike what had been installed before, and that fluidity in design makes this girl really, really happy. I think it’s especially great because it’s simple, something anyone could do if it matched their trim: basic 1×8 pine boards and base shoe.
