« Part 16: Tedium Part 17 of Mikros Kosmos series Part 18: Another tiny update »

this is what the table looks like un-taped. I also added the inlay which I think ties it into the rest of the house really well. I have to say, there is something about the balance between modern and the traditional.

This is what it looks like from above.

So what I did to the sink was spray it with satin nickle paint and then clear gloss. It gives an interesting look when it is finished, I think. I like it.

I encountered a minor problem with the doors upstairs. The epoxy I poured the other day soaked into the SPF wood and epoxied the doors shut. Ooops! I took them out, but they broke at the epoxied part. I dug that out, and glued them back together. So I will need to figure out how to re-mount the doors when all the framing is in place. (They use pins)

A very brief update.. but I wanted to show you all how the sink turned out! :)

I didn’t even think of that with the doors! So many details Lis . . . so many details! One thing you may not know about that epoxy is that if it gets damaged, another coat will make the damage for all purposes disappear. I poured it for coasters once and half way through the drying process, there was a hair in one. I picked it out with a pin but it was too far along in drying and left an ugly hole. I though I would be redoing that one and I needed to give another pour anyway so I thought ‘what the heck’. I re-poured the damaged one and you really couldn’t see any hint of damage whatsoever. It was like glass. I just thought you may want to know for future applications of the epoxy.

The sink and bathroom look perfect. I love the blue for the vanity top. The sink came out really nice too. I can’t wait to see the plumbing!

Thanks for even the brief update. I enjoyed waking up to it! :)

Thankfully, for the doors at least, there is no epoxy that needs to be repaired. Just some door frame. Not sure which I prefer to be honest…. The doors are repaired, but I’m still scratching my head over how to install them! I fixed a pin in one before, but I had access to the underside of the door frame. I haven’t done the ceiling yet under it so if my plan A and plan B fail, plan C is to drill through the floor. yikes!
