The Big Cover-Up ...
Just before Thanksgiving, we had some serious plumbing issues which resulted in abandoning all the leaking copper pipe in the foundation and running new water lines through the attic.

Thanks ladies ....Such an honor.
This left us with numerous areas where they had to cut large holes in the walls to get to the connections. We had from two to six plumbers here every day for at least seven days.
This wall is where they accessed the pipes that service the tub/shower/toilet in the main bath. More holes were cut in the wall behind the toilet.
This was in our office where they had to access the pipes to the lavatory in this bath. These walls were plastered, so an easy fix.
Putting it all back together ...
Walls that were wallpapered were the biggest challenge because I did not have any more paper and I did not want to put up new paper. I was able to take some paper from this wall to patch the wall behind the toilet ... (I hope)
but scrapped that idea and went with this ...
My inspiration.I had seen this in Bre's kitchen tour at Rooms For Rent
and thought it would work for this space for magazines, art and maybe towels. I printed out the picture and that was my work sheet.
It will be behind the door when the door is open and was made to fit that space without the door hitting it.
(Details at bottom of post)
2" wide shelf is just enough space for a few small books
and a picture.I did this charcoal drawing of a sleepy little kitten in 1973 and she has spent most of her life in a closet. Now she is out to be enjoyed.
Not room to back up and get a full length picture.
I sat a decorative wooden piece on the top and added some items of interest. (actually it is the top of a chair back)
The vintage pink frame makes a nice place to display pictures ... just clipped to the hanging wire.
The Santa graphic came from Karen at Graphic Fairy that I printed it on a sheet music graphic from Knick of Time.
You must visit these blogs ... great graphics for FREE !!!
Standing at the vanity; this is the reflection in the mirror.Sorry, no natural light for pictures.
Shelf details ...
Size: 80" tall ... 33" wide ... 2½" total depth.
2" display space in the shelves.
Shelves can be spaced to meet your personal needs.
This little piece was added to hold the screen mold brace.
If you have any questions or want more details, please ask.
Hope to inspire ... Thanks for the visit and hope you will let me know you were here.
Blessings and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
