bathroom remodel part II

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! I can’t tell you how happy I was to read everyone’s comments about the remodel. I appreciate all the color choices that were given. In fact the bathroom is going to be a color that one of you suggested! (Keeping that a secret for now) Like all projects in my home this one is yet to be completed. The sanding is done. That took a good three days. It was a major pain in the behind and it is STILL on the walls. The walls will just not be as smooth as “normal” walls are. I do have the primer up and the walls will just look textured. We decided that we are going to add wainscoting to the bathroom. So because of that decision and Jeff’s travel schedule it will be the beginning of August before the bathroom is totally done. I will give the finished pictures then. Here are the photos of what has occurred so far. Jeff gave me a good scare and said “you never know what is in that paint”. So I have the mask on. Good thing too. When I blew my nose that night I noticed the ‘Smurf’ blue dust in it.

Painting the primer

Primer done! Bathroom is in this state as we speak. Paint has been bought and the next step is to paint! :)

Congratulations to Kim!! She is the winner of the Target gift card. To show that this was fair we photographed the drawing as it occurred. I had 13 in the original post and then 5 in the next post. So I just added them and got 18. I used the first post first. So if the number drawn would have been 17 the winner would have been commenter 4 in the second post. Hope that makes sense.

Kim is the blogger on Keeping the Faith and Amazing Grace. Please e-mail me so I can mail you the gift card!! Thanks again to all of you. Please keep posting comments.

looks good so far! Thanks for the hair comment - it's so wild at the moment I don't have much of a choice! I owe you an email - just have to do a calculation!!!!

How fun to change the color! Reminds me how much work painting is, but you are giving me the itch to find a room in my house to paint! LOL.

Thanks for your sweet words, by the way. I really appreciate you coming by my blog, and I enjoy coming by yours!

I love the picture of your kids watching you paint the primer. Good luck with the project.

Thanks also for your nice comments recently on our blog. I'm glad you enjoyed the video montage- it was fun to make in between changing diapers, feeding babies, etc.

Let's hope CC Sabathia can help the Brewers win 7 in a row tonight as he faces the Cardinals. That guy must have been a blast to watch in Cleveland.

Take care,

I'm glad I saw this so that I'll remember never to do sand paint. Wow. Can't wait to see the new color.
