Stupid me

I'll say it once, only for the benefit of anyone who doubted our ability to do this bathroom renovation: I screwed up.

And by that I mean that I should have taken the time to move us out of our room before we started anything. And because of my lack of foresight (or laziness) I am now subject to sweeping/dusting/vacuuming every night before I can go to bed.


Other than that, the bathroom is swimming right along! Thanks to the help of my lovely parents, we were able to get up most of the drywall on Saturday. Now we are mostly done with the sub-floors and cement board which leaves us with a few solid half-done jobs!

Since pictures do a better job of showing progress than my beautiful prose, I'll share some.

At this point (in the photo) we have finished the ceiling and started on the wall. By "we" I mean "Kennedy & my Dad." This was after an 8ft piece of drywall fell on my poor Mom's head, knocking off her glasses and popping out a lens. Then I decided it was a good idea to have my camera out.

This is a view from where the shower will be. The exposed studs area is the future site of our vanity.

Kennedy's workflow differs from how I would do things, but he also works a lot faster than I would...However, don't leave drills and power tools lying around, plugged in and ready to chop off any appendages that should get in their paths! Kennedy almost lost a foot 5 times today.

My darling claw foot tub, sitting so patiently. Still needs to be painted and sealed - (I didn't know you could paint a tub?!?!)

Also, we bought floor tile today at this wonderful discount tile warehouse. Is it possible to be in love with a tile store? If so, then I am. We chose black slate tile - can't wait to get that in there!

Oh, and on an unrelated note, we have a rat in our house.
