|Disco bathroom gets updates|
|Many people have asked about the small sign on the tile. It reads 'Please! Mind the faucet water is hot and flows like crazy! Thanks the Mangement.' Don't all of you wish you lived in an old house that requires disclaimers?|
The next step was what to do about a hamper. We had been using a rolling metal basket that was mine from college. It worked great, but the round shape meant we hit it alot and banged up the wall. We had many requirements for a new hamper. It must be narrow (no wider than 14") it must have a cover on it (no one wants to see your dirty underwear), and it had to match the style of the bathroom. This is actually a tough nut. There are not many hampers that are that narrow or attractive or have covers.

We finally found a small tilt-out unit from Home Decorators that was about the size we wanted and had the bonus of being a small cabinet that would allow us to store stuff on top. It was expensive and on principle alone I would never spend 100 bucks on a hamper. I searched the internet and got several coupons and decided to bite the bullet. There were two things wrong with the hamper. First, it is a little more ornate then we wanted (it has silly little feet and this curved trim moulding), second, it was cream not white. But since it fit so well we decided to overlook it's fancy pants and took the plunge. And, for the second time, I was sanding, priming and painting a cabinet for our bathroom.
