Oy! I will be happy when it is done!

Posted by   + Show Post

Right now, we are in the process of remodeling our main bathroom in the house.  It was quite the fashion victim in the bathroom world.  But, oy!  I am already tired of this remodeling business and it has only been lil over a week!  We remodeled a lot of our home when we first bought it...but that was years ago...I forget how much of a pain it can be.  I guess no pain, no gain


Have you ever remodeled anything in your home??

I can see why you'd want to replace that wallpaper... Definitely not my style either! ;-)

Good luck with the tiling tonight, that can be tedious... But it looks so nice when it's done. I hope you'll share pics of the finished product, too!

We replaced 17 windows, a bathtub in one bathroom, a sink and floor in another bathroom, installed a fireplace insert, fixed some plumbing, fixed some wiring and are building a new indoor workshop. We still need a new kitchen, new wiring upstairs, insulation, soffit vents, and upgrades to the heating and cooling system.

Oh come on...I know you love that wallpaper!  Haha!  ;-)

Thanks for the luck!  Just so happened, my DH had a neighbor (who is pretty good at it) come over.  I was gone at a hair appointment and when I came back, they were done tiling!!  However, I now get to grout it tonight.

Here is the latest (they finished sheet rocking too!):

Our old house was 5000 sq ft and all needed updating. I painted pulled carpet....got out on the 3rd story for a quick (not) repair. I was getting happy with it then we have to sell and move. So I tell DH I want a new house painted just the way I want it, because I am never painting again. Got it ,and now 3 years later guess what I am doing this week. I am paint the kids bathroom! DH is staining the floor of the 700sq ft we are finally getting finished next week.
After adding on to the back of our house it kind of looks like a pizza hut.lol but we needed the room.: )

Have fun now all the stuff I did in the old house was a pain then now they are some of my best memories.
