Elsie: You’re listening to the A Lovely Mess podcast this week, we’re falling down the rabbit gap of dream loos as a result of generally it’s simply enjoyable to dream and I don’t know, I actually like loos. (laughs) We’re speaking bidets, saunas, wallpaper lined water closets, all of the enjoyable and essential factors that you’d count on for us to cowl. We’re additionally speaking COVID-related Halloween plans, which is a vital subject this yr. This week’s episode is sponsored by Canon USA. We’ll speak extra about them later on this episode. Okay, so earlier than we begin speaking in regards to the dream loos, I need to speak a bit bit about my mini-makeover as a result of I’m in the midst of that, which I believe additionally is a vital factor to only say out entrance is like we’re not all going to be making a dream toilet. It’s 2020 and all the pieces sucks.

Emma: Mhmm.

Elsie: Like that, you realize, simply get that out in entrance. You recognize, we’re not placing a dream toilet in our home proper now, and we’re assuming you’re in all probability not renovating your dream toilet both due to COVID and no matter. But it surely’s simply enjoyable to speak about…

Emma: Perhaps like one one that’s like a contractor. (laughs)

Elsie: Yeah. One particular person is like, “hey, this was my yr! This was my toilet yr. I’ve been saving up for ten years for this. OK, I’m doing it.” We see you. We hear you. However you’re the just one.

Emma: Yeah. The remainder of us are dreaming.

Elsie: (laughs) Yeah. So I don’t know. I simply assume it’s enjoyable to speak about and dream. Like one in all my favourite issues about house initiatives is saving a few of them for later. You recognize, I don’t need it to all be achieved directly. That’s why I might by no means do a brand new construct.

Emma: Yeah, it’s form of enjoyable to unfold it out a bit bit as a result of, one, it’s a variety of work and some huge cash. So simply on a sensible scale, however even on an emotional scale and likewise like a call fatigue form of scale, I believe it’s good to unfold it out. So that you get to really feel such as you get pleasure from making all these selections as a result of they’re actually enjoyable. However when it’s a must to do a ton of them directly, it’s really actually overwhelming. And you’ll really feel like “I don’t even care. Simply put white tile in. I can’t assume anymore,” you realize? And it’s like, nicely, you’ll in all probability be OK with these selections. However, you realize, it’s extra enjoyable in case you get to form of dream and unfold it out a bit bit.

Elsie: It undoubtedly is for me. I do know some individuals like getting it over with, however I like spreading it out and I like renovating. Like renovating is a interest to me as a lot because it’s our job. Somewhat bit for the weblog. Extra so it’s a interest. So I might do it this fashion whether or not I had a weblog or not. So anyway, we simply moved into a brand new home two months in the past, as you all know, and it got here with probably the most nineties kitchen and loos, very unique nineties. Nothing’s been up to date because the 90s. Like you’ll be able to inform, completely nothing has been up to date since then. So my most important toilet, I’ll let you know among the options it got here with, since you guys know our home is like form of fancy. It’s a, it’s like an enormous fancy dream home. However, BUT, that is it… got here with a leaking — like my vainness completely leaks. If I even attempt to wash my face, I’ve to, like, go over to Jeremy’s vainness to scrub my face or else put a towel below it. Each single towel bar within the toilet is damaged off. So it’s similar to two knobs on the wall all through the room. Our bathe solely has one temperature, which is — it’s so loopy that, like, we simply purchased this home and like, they didn’t repair any of this stuff.

Emma: Inform them in regards to the tub. I really feel such as you’ve perhaps talked about it earlier than, however that was fairly…since you took care of it instantly. But it surely was gross.

Elsie: All proper. So once we received our house inspection, and I’ll say, like, we received like a pleasant large low cost after we received our house inspection and we knew about all these items. So I’m not complaining. I’m really simply making an attempt to bond with you guys, like, you realize, like let you know the actual story. Proper.

Emma: That may very well be the identify of this podcast: I’m simply making an attempt to bond with you. (laughs)

Elsie: (laughs) I like that identify for a podcast.

Emma: It’s sincere.

Elsie: So once we received our inspection, it got here with like a variety of photos, a variety of terrifying photos of crawlspaces. And, you realize, that’s how inspections are. They’re meant to be a bit scary.

Emma: Proper.

Elsie: And, you realize, sober you up earlier than you make an enormous choice. So it got here with an image of how our whirlpool appeared if you crammed it with water and switch the whirlpool on. And it was like black mildew within the tub. It was tremendous gross trying. And so we knew that it wanted to be cleaned out. And it did say within the notes and the inspection like “that is really quite common. It simply must be cleaned.” It’s not like a — one thing that may’t be mounted, it hasn’t been utilized in a very long time and there’s like mildew rising in there, which is disgusting. So anyway, Keely advisable to me this jet cleansing product. I’ll hyperlink it within the present notes as a result of I can’t bear in mind the identify of it off the highest of my head, however we’ve been doing that, it’s a must to, like, fill your entire tub up, flip the jets on, put a few of this product in, after which let it run for quarter-hour after which drain it out after which do this again and again and over till there’s no extra mildew. And it did work. I’ll say it actually did work. And I really feel nice now and it’s not that large of a deal. So if anybody buys a home with jet tubs which can be questionable, this really did an important job. So I’m comfortable about it. Apart from being barely damaged. Oh, additionally, yet one more factor. Our bidet doesn’t work in any respect. It doesn’t work. Non-functional.

Emma: Now wait a second, let’s inform the listeners what number of bidets you’ve gotten in your new home, as a result of that is very humorous.

Elsie: There’s three bidets.

Emma: Oh, I believed there was extra. That’s that’s nonetheless humorous. However not as humorous as I hoped.

Elsie: There’s solely three bidets. (laughs).

Emma: I believed there can be like 5 so dangit!

Elsie: And it’s not just like the form of bidet, like, individuals are shopping for now the place they’re like hooking it as much as their rest room? It’s like there’s two bogs within the toilet one’s a bidet and one’s a bathroom. Yeah. So like, quaint trying bidets, I assume.

Emma: So it’s a must to go to the lavatory after which form of scoot your self over to the opposite one? Like that’s the way it works?

Elsie: Sure.

Emma: Okay, OK.

Elsie: Yeah.

Emma: I’ve by no means used a bidet ever. I’m not towards it. I simply haven’t, it hasn’t occurred in my life but so.

Elsie: Effectively once we did purchase this home I’ll say I used to be like, how do you get a bidet training? As a result of, yeah that’s…

Emma: That’s difficult.

Elsie: As a result of I be taught most issues from YouTube and this was like, undoubtedly not one thing you need to be taught from YouTube.

Emma: Proper. Proper. Yeah.

Elsie: Anyway, transferring on. (laughs) So aside from the lavatory being fairly damaged, it additionally simply has like typically like a nasty vibe. So it’s big for the ground plan of our home. On the downstairs under it, like the identical sq. footage, there may be the film room, a hallway, the visitor room and the visitor toilet. After which within the upstairs, all of that area is simply the principle toilet and the closet. So it’s like very, very giant, like form of ridiculously giant. Like, it bothered me the primary time we noticed it and I used to be like, what will we do with this? Somewhat bit frantic feeling? So anyway, and it similar to the vibe is sort of a zero, like there isn’t any cool vibe in any respect. So I really feel like what we’re making an attempt to do on this mini makeover is simply give it considerably of a cute look, you realize, like simply make it really feel nearly as good as it may. After which ultimately in hopefully 5 years or not quickly in any respect, I don’t need to give it some thought. We’ll ultimately intestine the lavatory and make it into like an actual dream toilet. It undoubtedly has the area to have potential. However anyway, the mini makeover is imminent. It’s now, I noticed a notification on my telephone that the {hardware} was delivered like yesterday and we’re going to be simply doing a bit little bit of portray, perhaps a bit little bit of wallpaper, perhaps a pop of colour within the water closet, or do you assume I ought to do water, the water closet, a pop of colour like paint or patterned like wallpaper?
