 This has been my peeve for at least a few years now. This is the main bathroom in the house we have been renting for the last 10 years. It has ZERO ventilation, so moisture has always been a problem.
 The "popcorn" peeling down.
And yes, mold/ mildew growing in patches all around the room.
  I scraped the "popcorn" down,and washed down the walls. Then Mr C primed with KILZ, and painted.

The color is a soft, butter yellow- not as bright as it looks on (my) monitor. The ceiling was not yet painted in the next to last picture, but is finished in a soft yellow beige in the final shot. Our cost was just under $40. (And a number of hours of labor.)
I am so thrilled.... I have detested the muddy, baby poop gold it had been since we moved in.
The garden is planted. This year we have 12 tomato plants and five pepper plants. Four hills of squash- yellow and zucchini. We have both pole beans and peas, as well as bush beans. We put lettuce, spinach, carrots, and leeks into containers. This is much later planting than normal for us, by several weeks.
Here is a cute little bunny who took refuge behind a board in the shed lean-to. Jaffa could smell bunny, and worried at the board for days before he knocked it over. Bunny wasn't caught... but hasn't returned to his compromised hideout.
