Master Bath, The Window (part 3) continued.......

Working on the "Master Bath" has been both fun and alot of work... It's starting to give me more ideas as I go along.  I started with no real plan, just I wanted it up dated and interesting, soft, pleasing to the eye, with my "White Theme".
I needed to put up some molding to frame the window... it did not have any, as do most of the windows in my home.... I purchased, from the Home Depot, 3" white molding. Measured and with my trusty "Miter Box" saw, I got to work.


I have used this really nice "tool" before,  I always find a way to make a mistake.. So, I went slow. Held the wood to the window frame and marked the desired cut with a pencil... "By Golly, I think I did it"!



 Then disaster happened!  I cut the top piece of molding "WRONG"... upside down! I did not take a photo of this mistake... Being really upset with myself, "Not wanting to buy another strip of molding for one (1) 22" piece",  I simply cut a new one from the scraps then pieced together, in the center of the length. Know what? I was so careful with the 'caulking'... you will never know it unless you get "Real Close".


 After caulking the seams, "It came out better than I hoped!"

Then out came the "Paint".... It's time to rid myself of the "Brown Metal" look!


"Squeel with Delight" moment for me!!

My first post on this window "Transformation" I showed how I made the 'Shelf"... Instructions for the easy window shelf, click!

Total cost for the window redo... left over paint and nails, glue and glass. Molding $8.79, .50c twine...  
my kinda price!



"Not bad",,, Not bad at all!
(yes, I'm so happy with myself)

Now it's time to "Panic and do a bit of research"... my plan is to '"Tackle the Tub and Tile.... It's an 80's creamy color"
I want "White"... white everything!  On to read about "How to paint your tub and tile"! If I, by chance, make a mess of it.. out they go and new will take it's place.. (I really don't want to spend that kind of money! but?)
Wish Me luck!

That sounds like something I would do!! I can measure twice and cut 3 times as I measure the same way the second time or it is backwards!!! Window looks great!

Oh how I would have cried at that mistake! But you took it with a grain of salt and made it work. And it looks fab!

WOW -- I am so impressed. The molding looks perfect. Mistake? What mistake? I'm so anxious to see what you do with the tube (paint-wise), and I absolutely LOVE the glass window shelves. Putting the sparkling blue glass in front looks beautiful, and I'm going to go check out that tutorial right now. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing. You are an inspiration!

Great job! Isn't painters caulk wonderful? LOL It's bailed me out many a time.

It looks so great. I'm impressed you came up with such a workable solution. I would have cried and gone to the store to spend more $$$. :) The shelf is very unique, too. Love it!

Oh, I would so make that mistake too. You should read about how I nailed my door shut when I tried to hang a mirror once! Thanks for the comment you left about my cabinet. To answer your question, I incorporated my acrylic sealer into the glaze. I've never had a problem with sealers yellowing over time. Maybe it's the brand I use - not too sure - though I always apply a pretty thing coat.

By gum, I think you've pulled it off! No one will notice the molding trick and we wouldn't either if you hadn't pointed it out. Love your clever shelves, too!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who would make a mistake like that! The molding really makes the window, doesn' it? Good job!
