I have been super productive in getting my bathroom redone – here are some before and almost-done pictures:
GETTING THERE (status as of today, 27 May):
My bathroom has definitely taken most of my daylight hours, but it’ sbeen so worth it as I’ve been learning LOTS by doing this. My tool chest has also gotten seriously bigger. For the bathroom though, my Dad and I started this up on Friday morning with pure destruction only at that point, which involved getting out the old vanity, mirror and linoleum. Sounds easy. Wasn’t. Over the next few days though, my bathroom has evolved into what you see above. And I’m stoked. Not done yet – the water feeds didn’t reach while using the old connections, so I have to get some of those. Plus, need to put the chair rail along the midpoint (the paint top looks ragged because I knew I’d be railing over it), hang the mirror, replace the lights, put up the shelving…and THEN I’ll be done. Because this has been a lot of work, I haven’t gotten to the car stereo project, and that’s probably gonna have to wait until next weekend. I can survive though!
Went and saw Shrek 3 on Thursday (quick review: decent movie, but nothing special) and Pirates of the Caribbean 3 last night (very entertaining – so far, my favorite ‘third’ movie of the summer, as it was a lot more fun than Shrek 3 or Spiderman 3).
Hope you’re all having a good holiday weekend – can’t believe my 5-day weekend is nearly over, but it certainly has been productive. It’s been fun having Dad and Pat over every morning to help and talk to. But anyways, it’s time to get cleaned up, get some dinner, and then go over to Jeff’s house to hang out with the gang. Sweet.
Here’s a pic from hanging out at Jeff and Jeremy’s house – much needed soak in the hot tub, as my back was sore after all the work during the day on the bathroom project. Alcohol doesn’t hurt either:
