SIL#2 will be doing any plumbing that's involved for free. I am gonna cash in on all that babysitting I've done over the past 3 years! Ha Hubby's dear head........well we would both like to see it go, however hubby might have a fit when he gets home to see it's missing. I must say this dear has been quite a conversation piece over the years. I'm just not sure if it should stay or go. Feel free to share your thoughts on hubby's pride and joy.
I have felt lazy as a slug all day long. Every single thing I have completed has seemed like a real chore, so not like me. To heck with it, I am gonna call it a day and hope for a whole lot more energy tomorrow.
Carla will be hosting a No/Low spend challenge for September if anyone would like to join in. As much as I would like to participate and NEED to participate I will have to pass on this one as September will be a BIG spend month for us!! So darn many home repairs and updates :(
The one thing other than the new "Cake Walk" quilt I am looking forward to around the house is gutting the powder room with DD#1. I have set a budget of $600.00 to do the deed. That might seem like a lot of money but there is a LOT to do.
Step #1 is to refurbish the vanity. I can't find a new cabinet that will fit the footprint I have to work with unless we destroy and replace the tile floor. That is not going to happen!! The tile is in great shape, it needs to stay. I had an estimate done years ago to have the kitchen cabinets refaced. The cost was ridiculously high and I don't want a covering placed on solid wood cabinets. The only other option is to refinish the vanity we have. Anybody in the mood to come over and sand? I will be happy to do the cooking! Ha DD#1 likes to paint, I don't, sooooo I will be doing the sanding she will do the painting. All of the hardware will be replaced, new counter top and sink installed by SIL#1 if I can find something to fit, and he will replace the fixtures for us.
The work starts tomorrow. I am not sure how long the sanding will take, I have set a goal of September 6th for this step. I am thinking it should be the hardest and longest to accomplish.
We shall see how this is going to work out. Having no central air is going to be a bugger to work in!!!! Anyone else doing any DIY projects around the house?
