And the high-gloss navy walls, cabinets and trim.
And just when we started to settle back in (if adding a plant and nightlight constitutes settling in)...
Son of a biscuit, what the french is happening here?!? After only two showers, Mr. Sugarplum informed me the leak was back. I immediately called Rockstar Contractor, who assured me there was no way this shower would ever leak again. After his weekend housecall, he declared it the fault of the glass guy. You know, the one we waited on for 2 months (have I mentioned that already?)!
What happened wuz.....the gap in the door was installed too wide, causing water to spray out and seep down between the paint and drywall. High gloss paint is almost pliable when dry, so it was trapping the water and literally formed a water balloon on the side of the wall.
The fix is simple, but I'm wary of how it will look. They need to insert one of those silicone sweeps all the way up the gap (like the one along the bottom of the door), and I'm thinking that will look like crap! Does anyone have that on their frameless shower door? How wide should that gap be? Mr. Go-the-Extra-Mile Contractor is going to tile the bottom part of the wall too, just to be safe.
And problem Numero Dos that's preventing us from moving on, is the paint application. Since I wanted a lacquer look (which shows every single flaw), I let a professional handle it. My painter 'floated' the walls (much like he did when expertly enclosing this opening), then sanded them smooth. The trim and cabinets are painted with a brush, creating a smooth, shiny surface. But for the walls, he used a really nappy roller....which caused the paint to dry with an orange peel texture!!
I know, that picture is lame, and you might not even
