We also gutted our horrible looking bathroom! It was just plain sad, let me tell you people! Now, I love it! The walls are a pale green with oak flooring, a new toilet that has the flush button on the top!! Woot! Woot! New vanity and vanity top. We still have to pick out a medicine cabinet, lighting, and finish the drop ceiling. But it already is 100x's better than it was!! We also had the contractor finish the drywall we started in our hallway and utility room. Those are both painted and now my husband just has to finish the floor in there, hang doors, and we'll call it good.
We also had the contractor finish our horrible attempt at drywalling in our front entrance. That is now primered but still needs to be painted and the floor put down. That will happen this spring.
Then the contractor finished our other botch job at the top of our stairs!! We suck at drywall! We can put it up but we have no skills for taping and mudding!! That still has to be primered and so does the upstairs hallway. We'll finish that when my husband has his next 7 days off!!
Needless to say we've been living in chaos for about a month and it has been driving all of us crazy! We were able to make the house look decent for the Christmas tree and we all took Christmas day off to rest and enjoy each others company. It was a lot of hard work but I feel like we really accomplished so much!! I'm proud of my husband...we made a good team!!
Please forgive my absence on your blogs. I will be making my rounds tomorrow because guess what???? I don't have anything pressing to do!! Yippee!!!! Now, I'm off to help my husband put our bed back up. We've been sleeping on a mattress from the camper on our living room floor. I can not wait to crawl into bed tonight!
