Our lovely house:
A less than lovely toilet phone:
|(Yes, the toilet roll is out. It's perpetually out. Because I'm too inept to be able to figure out how to work the roll holder. |
Phase II of Bathroom Overhaul: Easy to use toilet roll holder.)
I'm not sure why we have toilet phones--why someone sat down (presumably on the jon) one day and thought, "You know what our beautiful historic house needs? Phones in the loo."
The strange thing is, we have exactly three phones on the property. Two are in bathrooms. The third is in the garage. Did these people never make a phone call in a normal location?
Regardless. Despite the fact that I love the evolution of our house, how I can see when different historic styles of architecture and design had their moments in the house and stuck around, the toilet phone epoch is one I'm not terribly attached to. I'm not terribly attached to much of anything about the bathroom decor, to be honest. Case in point below. But while the overhaul will need to wait, getting rid of the toilet phones doesn't need to.
So that's my home-renovation goal for the weekend--unscrew the toilet phones from the wall.
More adventures in This Bizarre Old House to come.
