Remember when I said that owning a beachhouse isn’t as “glamorous” as it sounds?
I wasn’t fibbing.
Whenever we stay at the beachhouse, it is a time of repairs and not just relaxation.
Our beachhouse is heavily rented, so it get’s a ton of wear and tear.
My sister mentioned a tip she had seen one time on what to do to make your potty look a little fresher.
In our beachhouse particularly, rust pops up everywhere.
The screws in the lid of the commode are really rusty from cleaning and who the heck knows what else.
Let’s not go there, Kk?
Rusty screws when you open the commode can make the commode look rather grungy.
One quick way to hide that rust is to caulk the screws.
You can still unscrew them if you eventually need to but it covers the rusty, dirty look that the screws can give the lid.
We did this to every bathroom this morning and the commodes look so much better.
Please ignore the lighting on these photos. I am trying out Picasa and cannot really figure it out.
Please ignore the fact that I didn’t even clean the bathrooms of our clutter to take these photos.
Please also ignore the fact that the lid on this commode looks utterly disgusting. It actually isn’t. The picture picked up a slight tinge, that is not normally visible, down the middle of the lid. Take a tip from me and do NOT spray bleach or a bleach cleaner on the lid and walk away. It discolors the lid.
It actually isn’t this obvious in real life though.
We are grungy, rusty, screw people. Not grungy uncleaned commode lid people.
So taking grungy to fresh was super easy!
Only two steps.
Step one: Caulk.
Step two: Smear with your finger or wet paper towel.
So are you impressed or disgusted?
I love the difference.
Are you a little disappointed that the first pictures I share of the beachhouse is of the commode?
More pictures are coming soon.
Until then, here is another teaser…..
A picture of the “play room” area of the beachhouse.
Can you guess how many people the beachhouse sleeps?
Want to guess bedrooms and baths?
Â Not the shabby chic beach cottage we all picture for ourselves, is it?
Like the potty trick?
We were pleased!
Do you have grungy screws? Would you admit it?
Let me know…….
I can’t wait to show you around.
