I have been waiting to post updates because we haven’t exactly finished one room completely yet. We’ve continued to make progress, of course, but we’re still looking for window coverings, a topcoat, some more paint, etc.
Unfortunately, all of this waiting for the big reveal has turned me into a total troll. To remedy this, I’ve decided that it’s time to share some of our work and hopefully you guys can spur me into a more positive direction again!
I’m starting with the bathroom because it has been the most fought over space between the two of us, from a vision standpoint, and is now becoming the most prized remodel of the house. (No, we haven’t touched the kitchen yet.)
As you recall, we tore out the carpet (yuck!) and then busted up the tile below. We tore off the sheet Formica counter top and removed our blue sink. We ditched the blue potty and re-glazed the blue tub. We took down the wallpaper. We primed the whole bathroom (we haven’t actually started painting yet). We (read Fred) put down new flooring, added a new sink and toilet (also Fred), and refinished the vanity (read Meg). Then we (Fred) added the back-splash and that brings us up to the present!
Not completed but there is a transformation in the works that I hope is worth sharing. Enjoy!
And the (for now) Before & After:
If you love it, please tell us what you think! If you don’t, well, remember what your mother told you: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all! And bear in mind, she’s STILL a work in progress.
