NEW INSULATION INSTALLED
Last May (help me...WAS IT that LONG AGO???) I blogged about being totally excited about my guy and I starting the first phase of our second bath makeover! I thought I knew ahead of time what we were in for because I figured once you've done one total bath redo (you can see what I'm talking about here!) you pretty much assume you know it all! (Bah! That "ass-u-me" gets me every single time).
TOTALLY NEW SUBFLOOR
(Shower Will Be Here)
Anyway, I was soooo thrilled because after living nearly 18 years in our La Chaumière de Briarwood we would FINALLY be rid of the most hideous (and totally non-useful) bathroom in the entire state of Oklahoma! That ugly, tiny, barely functional thing was original to our home, too!! It was horrible from the get-go!
FABULOUS VINTAGE FRENCH POCKET DOOR
In that Post which I called "The Ugliest Bathroom in America", I showed pictures of our teensy, tiny, 1970's era master bath (yes...I said master!) that is situated just off our bedroom... Our PLAN was to have it finished by late summer and boy oh boy have we EVAH missed the mark! Since the day the first chunk of sheet rock was removed the entire experience has been an 'in our face' project. We've lived with tools everywhere, not to mention dust, drafts and just plain old stuff junking up what should be one of the most special places in our home.
Well...I suppose that is what happens when you end up having a Spring, Summer and Fall crammed full and over-flowing with unexpected ISSUES! MORE WORK and back-story planning that I can even say! It's been OVERWHELMING to say the least!
NEW FAN and CODE LIGHTING
So...the actual WORK for our "Ugliest Bathroom in America Makeover" project was forced to take a backseat until we could wrap our brains around how we would proceed. Now...I'm using the word "we" here because it makes me feel like I have a say in what's going on. If the truth be told I totally took my hands off the entire thing and gave my hubbs permission to FIGURE IT OUT! :)
I'M LOVIN THIS PART
Somebody kill me PLEEZE! I really have a hard time living in chaos and that is just what my guy and I have been experiencing for months and months.
PAINT READY SINK and CABINET
(I'M WAITING FOR MY PAINT JOB MR. DeMille!)
The good news is this... A few weeks ago we were able to once again return to the pesky project and after moving ALL the water pipes (the shower position is being changed) and having to change ALL the wiring, etc., my guy was finally able to get the new insulation installed, sub-floor completed, vents and overhead main light and fan installed and the 'I didn't think he could do it' vintage French Door refashioned into an amazingly fabulous Pocket Door. I know it's hard to even figure out what's going on here but I promise to post more pics soon to you can see even more of the process.
I'm also over-moon happy my sink's cabinet will finally be painted this weekend. "Cottage White" rules!
