Man, oh man! First the tub gets installed (leak free, as of today) and now we have a working shower! That's right! Today, with my mom's help, I took the test pipe out and put the real shower head in.
FYI: It's Price Pfister, from Home Depot Online
Please excuse the "meh" pictures but Conan's still at work and let's just say, I'm no Conan when it comes to the snappy snap snaps.
I'm giddy at the possibility of taking a shower anywhere other than our basement!
Ugh! It's so handsome I can't stand it!
We're still working out the "antique handles and escutcheons are difficult to retrofit" issues so we're stuck with these bad boys for now
Here's a little excited/nervous video of us turning it on for the first time:
I get to take a shower in a place that isn't here:
Uh-huh. That's right. We've been showering in a plastic pan meant to go under a washing machine for the better part of a year. It ain't pretty and I've avoided showing it until now because I'm so high on shower-having happiness that I don't care (and also, a dear reader named Jennifer wanted to see it). The realities of do-it-yourself.
But hey, it forces you to be pretty clever. Case in point: our dowel rod, telephone wire shower curtain up there. Word. Next up, the shower handles I suppose. Til' then, if you need me, I'll be in the shower singing Dancing Queen at the top of my lungs.
