      Pullman Bathroom

      I guess this will prove I've lost my marbles entirely, but since it's crazy + railroady, I figure this is the place to gush about my latest "project."

       

      I have a basement bathroom next to my office, which I use a lot. Probably TMI, but the older I get, the more I use it, and therefore the more important the decor becomes. About a year ago I got a repro railroad brass shelf and a couple Pullman towels. Then a Pullman deodorizer jug. This last Sunday I bought a genuine PM brass cuspidor at the railroadania show in Gaithersburg MD (with our friend here, Jerry B). Also bought a few documents, small posters, and a money bag, for cheap bucks. Haven't placed those yet, but here's the early items.

       

       

      So... the longer I have opportunity to stare at the shower curtain, the more it's occurred to me, why not make it look sort of like a berth curtain? Long and short of it, I couldn't see any proto Pullman items (repro or used), or even photos of such a thing. The current curtain needs replacing, and I was thinking of... stencil-spraying a Pullman logo on a blank white curtain? Naah... But then I saw that you can get custom-printed (like everything else) shower curtains, so haaahdayem. 

       

      I hung up and photographed my PM blanket...

       

       

      ... adjusted it in Photoshop, and ordered the thing.  Here's a couple shots from the printer places. 

       

      Pretty cool, I thought. I decided to go with Zazzle because they have a 15% off deal now. Curtain cost $50, plus shipping and tax. I know, an obsessive waste of moolah, but fun. 

       

      Now, some of you who know me might wonder how I'd ever veer away from anything Virginia & Truckee related. The simple answer is that I needed a breather from the V&T, and I figger the bathroom is a good place to get it.

      Rooster, are you suggesting that Cliff should put a stripper pole in his bathroom? Curious...

      Install a TV, move your workbench and a fridge in there and you are good to go!

      Certainly a bigger bathroom than mine, which hardly has room for me, let alone a stripper pole.

      7-11 burritos, baby. Not so much of an issue since I quit smoking, but you know what they say, Safety First.

      That IS the crack pipe, and see, I'm not holding it in that pic.

      Yesterday, upon seeing that yes, you can get custom-printed towels, I think I finally crossed over to full blown nuthood. 

       

      I stretched out a real Pullman hand towel, which I'm sure you've all seen. 

       

       

      Then photoshopped it until only the middle logo strip was left. Yes, I spent over an hour erasing between those stitches...

       

       

      Here's the Zazzle product preview of the bath towel. Since I'm paying for a full-image thing, and because it looked really barren otherwise, I added the Pullman-blue border. 

       

       

       

      I bought the 3-piece set (which includes the hand towel and wash cloth), because this is theoretically supposed to remain a guest bathroom...  The set was $39 (with their November coupon) + S&H, so $50 total.

       

      If someone wants the artwork for this or the shower curtain, pm me.
