Bathroom Renovation – Day 20

The bath repair man was here today and was able to fix the damage to the bath – yay!

Now we have another problem. The soft-close toilet seat won’t actually stay up when Rob wants to use it. The project manger took it off and put it back on a couple of times, but wasn’t able to fix it. He thinks it’s a faulty soft-close mechanism so has put in a service call to Reece (the place the toilet was bought from). Someone there will come out and sort it out for us.

I managed to do a little bit of prep for painting today, sanding back the two-tone suede effect paint in the toilet so we can cover it in a low-sheen paint in one colour. I also sanded the window frame and door frame in the toilet. Whoever painted them last put water-based paint directly over the top of oil-based paint and it had started to peel off.  Unfortunately all the sanding made a huge mess :-(
