It's done. Everything went wrong, for the most part. But somehow we managed to keep the budget under $1500 and completely renovate the master bathroom. Most importantly, it's done. Done.
Joe really gets credit for the bulk of it.... Maggie supervised his tile job & I painted.... but the rest was really him. Well, until it came time to buy a shower curtain and new towels. I don't even remember the last time I bought new towels! I am totally smitten with the colors in there.....
Craziest part of the job, scraping grout out & having half of the tiles come with it. Seriously. Not a good moment. Much swearing under the breath, broken tiles, etc. We couldn't find square tiles that were the same size, so Joe improvised by adding the rectangular section and salvaging the broken squares to do the zigzag top. He's a smart one! And it looks so good.
Hardest part, waiting three weeks for the vanity to come in. And another week on top of that for the mirror. I guess we like to find bathroom vanities that are on back-order. But when you have a tiny budget and specific measurements to work with.... you have limited options!
In other house news, the kitchen and hallway are completely repainted. The music room and entryway walls have been washed and retouched. Most of the moulding has been repainted. Two small tile jobs in the kitchen were done. The cabinets finished. The kitchen will be ready to share here by late next week!
Things are moving along and we're hoping to have an appointment with the realtor next week to get a for sale sign in the front yard. Oh do please wish us luck.
And one last thing.... Joe finally got official orders!! They still say Providence, RI. We should be heading to New England sometime in June..... or maybe part of us sooner if the house sells quickly.
Either way, we're in for a whirlwind of events these next few months....
