Extreme Home Scrape-Over

Guests can now go to the bathroom at my house again. And they don't even need a tetanus booster to do so.

It's a huge victory.

I've painted and scraped and redone and sanitized.

The guest bathroom.

And I will have you know that even after a year and a half, even after thinking I had thoroughly cleaned up one of 8 of 8's more standout creations, I still found Plaster of TP in little smidges at various spots.

Join me, as we revisit a post from February of 2010, chronicling the creative delight of 8 of 8.

And as for the newly made over guest bathroom, I'm keeping it locked until company comes over. For real.

So you're thinking to yourself, "That Octa. I emailed/called/texted/Facebooked/im'd/commented her and haven't heard back yet!"

Just know that it's not because I don't love ya.

I've just been solving some housekeeping mysteries, one two-year-old at a time.

8 of 8 has created a new faux wall treatment...I'm calling it 'Plaster of TP.' The procedure is this; you very, very, very quietly sneak into the guest bathroom while your mother is just on the other side of the wall and you very, very, very quietly dip toilet paper into the toilet and proceed to throw the moist remnants of said paper at the wall. And be sure and get yourself soaked in the process so that your mother knows who the, um, artist is.

It does bring a unique texture to the space.

Maybe I'll just paint over it.

Yeah, that's it. A nice coat of latex is all this needs.

So if you've emailed/called/texted/Facebooked/im'd/commented me and haven't heard back yet, just remember, I do love ya.

I've just been a little busy.

Figuring out this latest mystery. Determining who the creative genius behind the Plaster of TP is.

And googling ideas for cleaning up toilet paper blobs.
