Vienna side project...

As I promised after almost a full month a small project from the family apartment in Vienna. It is... painting the water closet!
Seemed like a small and harmless project when I started it yesterday... wet and scrape off the old distemper, remove some old oil paint, patch small plaster holes and repaint.
Well... it perfectly prove the well-known old-house laws. Let's say I have some brick-laying to do on the exterior wall... expect pictures tonight.

For those who never heard the old-house laws:
1) Everything takes far longer than expected.
2) Everything gets more expensive than expected (well, not much in that case, thankfully!)
3) Every simple project causes at least one side-project that is dicovered during work.
