I'm happy to report that the transformation is now complete. Yesterday, I purchased a hand towel (actually, I purchased three and returned two) and a soap dispenser (bought two and returned one). But best of all, I found a super-cool candle thingy to set on the back of the toilet. To top it off, I bought some "spa" tangerine-vanilla scented tea lights. (Probably not exactly what they smelled like in pirate days, but hey...)
Everyone, including Spouse, Daughter, and Lily, agrees that the candle thingy is a good addition and adds to the POTC atmosphere (although Spouse is now making somewhat offensive references to purgatory). But there are some issues: Lily stands on the toilet and gets dangerously close the the flames. Daughter is a little concerned that her hair will catch on fire if she uses that toilet whilst the candles are burning. (OK, that's a legitimate issue.) And I also discovered that when you flush the toilet, the six burning candles go sliding toward the newly painted wall, thus creating a fire hazard. So yesterday I purchased little felt pads and stuck them to the legs of the candle thingy to make it a bit more stable. That problem was solved. Lily and Daughter are on their own.
With the kitchen, laundry room, and POTC bathroom complete, our re-decorating efforts will shift to the dining room and entry way. Ladies and gentlemen, may I remind you that we have a two-story entry way completely covered in pink floral wallpaper. To remove it will require a scaffold.
Or perhaps Johnny Depp.
