    Looking great! I feel your pain…our bathroom remodel continues here, too. Hang in there! Cheering you on from the sidelines!

    beautiful job! I have a silly question – when nailing anything behind the toilet, do you worry you will hit a pipe?

      Yes! That is a great question, actually! I made sure to use finishing nails that were 1.25″ because that goes through the .75″ board and .5″ drywall, without the chance of going further. This can be a huge issue in a first floor bathroom–like this room specifically. We did go into a pipe years back, and we didn’t even know it until we did, lol, so I’m always careful of this! Typically, when I try to screw something in, like a shelf, I do a pinhole sized hole, and I use a metal nail to tap to see what’s behind the drywall. It’s not only a concern in the bathroom, but if there’s duct work, you don’t want to put holes in that either!
