The bathroom construction continues and I’ve taken lots of pictures. This morning was the beginning of tile day one starting with cement board going up. Here’s that and Sheetrock. Enjoy!

Happy Monday!





Bathroom update #1

June 13, 2012

So construction has been in full swing for about 2 and a half days now. It was a pretty quick gut and soon the plumber will do his magic and the rebuilding will begin. Here’s the look so far. Notice the hideous wallpaper found under the mirror. Ek!

Happy remodel!






Back to the blog

June 11, 2012

I am so sorry we have been MIA for so long. Life has really taken over any blogging I may want to do. I haven’t crafted, sewn, or hardly even cooked or baked in who knows how long! It’s so sad. I know I promised a lot to you and haven’t fully delivered.

To start this post I’ll let you know today begins construction on my bathroom remodel! Through all that life has thrown at us lately we are still finally able to remodel one of our bathrooms. Our home was built in 1967 and I’m pretty sure the bathroom has never been touched. Here I will post before photos as I cleared it all out in preparation for big changes.

We are changing the door to a pocket door because of how you currently have to dance with it to get in and out of the space. We are changing everything out except the toilet and linen closet. We are trying to keep some character so we are using hexagon tile in the bathroom and will do subway tile around the tub.

The remodel should take a couple weeks so I will post progress pictures as exciting things happen!

Thanks for staying in touch. I cooked this weekend and plan to bake this week! I also will try to craft while I’m home during construction!

Happy Monday!
