Watch this space

This is the southern wall of the bathroom. The window is on the western wall (on the right in this photo), the bathtub is on the northern wall (behind where I'm standing), and the new shower, which is just visible in the mirror, is built into the northeastern corner of the room. Got it? Now, that blank wall above the bidet and the chest of drawers is where the new medicine cabinet will go. It will be positioned horizontally just above the line of the tile. The cabinet door will open up toward the ceiling.

The new cabinet will help us to eliminate some of the clutter on the chest of drawers.

I got the screws and sleeves that I needed from the hardware store and will continue the mounting and assembly process today. Wish me luck!


  1. Best of luck. I hope that the screws and plugs do not disappear into a space in the 'brique' like they do in our house!

  2. and I see the ocd towel rack there too

  3. Excellent! I can't wait to see it!
    How's the electric towel dryer/warmer doing?

  4. I thought I had a lot of towels! I can't wait to see your cabinet. I hope you got the right screws, it usually takes us a couple of trips to Lowe's to get the right screw.

  5. Good luck! Who is the expert towel roller?

  6. East is east and west is west and the wrong one we have chose... Is ESE opposite WNW in France like it is here? What fun this all is... and I can't wait for you to get rid of the clutter on the chest of drawers!

  7. Good luck.
    I am very impressed with the rolled towels, so orderly.

  8. potty, they didn't! I sometimes make the holes too big, but was careful this time.

    jean, merci !

    melinda, lol.

    judy, the towel warmer is great, but it's not electric. It's plumbed into the central heating system so it works like a steam radiator.

    evelyn, I lucked out and got the right ones the first time!

    gaynor, thanks! The "spa-rolled" towels are just as easy to do as folding. Believe it or not, there are instructions for doing it on YouTube!

    mitch, and never the twain shall meet. There's still some stuff on the cabinet, but it's much less stuff and much more manageable now.

    emm, I could never get my stacked towels to look neat (I'm not very good at folding), so I decided to try rolling them.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
