excited! about! decor!

It seems to me like Aquila is a work in progress. The guys are always moving things around, rearranging and reorganizing in order to make more space for cool stuff.
One thing that never got finished (or so it seemed to me) was the bathroom. Oh sure -- it has the important parts (toilet, sink, mirror, towels). But someone had picked up some wood panels and molding for wainscoting the wall in the potty. And there the wood sat for the longest time. There was at least one occasion I offered to grab a hammer and put the paneling up myself, but let's be honest -- nobody wants that. Nobody. Aimee + Hammer = Bad Idea. (I'm much better at DEconstruction than construction.)

But I digress.

The last time I was at the studio, I noticed that the wood paneling was finally in place! The bathroom was nearly done -- all that was left was the crown molding. It looks great! I get so excited about bathroom decor!! Let's use more exclamation points!!!

And as I come out of the bathroom praising the wonders of wainscoting, Scott gives me a look. "You know... we did that like two months ago. It was like that the last time you were here."
So much for my powers of observation...

I could not resist sharing a story about the green wall: under the wainscoting the paint fades to white - its green for 2/3rd of the wall but then the bottom is still white, it sorta fades out.

When Scott first did this I did not know he planned to put up the faux wood wainscoting (who knew?!) and so I asked him "Scott, your paint job in the bathroom, ah... did you just not want to bend over?"

That got some good laughs all around. I still maintain that he just didn't want to bend over to paint the bottom of the wall, so he hung wainscoting.

Actually Jay finally hung the wainscoting :) Thanks Jay!
