Oooh So Busy With Photos
As summer approaches many of us are so busy with camping, BBQ's, fishing and all sorts of outings with family members. That holds true for us too. I've been busy with many things lately, which I will talk about one by one with photos. We've been working on our home for god knows how long now. We finished getting our kitchen cabinets, countertops and new appliances in. I still need to put new handles on my cupboards yet, but for the most part the kitchen and living room are done. When the handles are attached to the cabinets I will post photos. A couple of weeks ago we started on our only bathroom. This bathroom had all the updates from the 1970's. White tiny tile floor, oak vanity with a white plastic countertop, and old porcelain tub & shower surround. It was absolutely disqusting! And that's putting it mildly. Everytime I went into the bathroom I wanted to take a seldge hammer to the floor. You could never keep it clean. The toilet was so old it had rust everywhere on it or in it! So let the mess begin. We've taken down a couple of walls due to the way the last remodel was done. We have the new walls up, and the new tub and shower surround in. But what a dusty mess! Sanding down the putty for a smooth surface makes for a dusty mess. And there's more dust to come. It seems you can clean and clean and it still keeps coming. I will be SO GLAD WHEN THE DRY WALL PART OF IT IS DONE! Here's a photo of some of the work, that's my hubby doing the work himself.
