Before I got all hot and nasty working on the powder room this morning I made a quick trip to the fabric store for some decorating sewing supplies
I won't be meeting my goal of finishing the powder room today but at least the hard part is out of the way. In the morning I will be able to do some touch up work then get the paint cans off the kitchen counters before the little girls arrive. The cabinet doors are still a little sticky so I am going to wait an additional day before I reinstalling them. Here is whats left on the To Do list
Replace the toilet -SIL
Install new electrical reciprocals - have to wait for Hubby
Install new light fixture - Also for hubby
Repurpose the picture frames/mats - me, who knows when
Install toilet paper holder - me, maybe tomorrow
Install new hand towel ring - me maybe tomorrow
Finish hand towels - who knows
Finish what I hope to be cute project - FOR sure tomorrow
Make wall art with the grands - Sunday dinner one weekend
AND added to the list
Install a back splash! grrrr - Who the heck knows, need some u tube time
As is always the case when you start an update/remodel project something unplanned always pops up. Of course those pop ups cost money. The new bath counter doesn't have a back splash. I could just putty, sand, putty some more and keep sanding until I repair where the old back splash was but I know in no time at all the walls would be in a mess. Our powder room takes a lickin for sure. It's the only bathroom on the first floor, yep it gets lots of action. Of course our grands are no different than any other little ones in that they lose their collective minds as soon as water starts running. I haven't started checking the price of tiles, mud, grout and whatever else will be needed.
We are going to be OVER budget :( There is no turning back, nothing to do but plow forward. For a change I am not freaking out by being over budget. We need to do any remodeling, repairs and all before hubby retires, this is one more step towards that goal. By doing the work ourselves while we can still get around (sorta) we are saving a whole lot of money. I think by the first of next week the spending will be done and I will be able to share the numbers.
Off for now, I need to do a clean sweep before bed to make sure I have all of the tools cleaned up and whatever else the little girls might want to get into tomorrow tucked away.
