Mr. and I finally closed on the “Preacher House” about six weeks ago and moved to the water!
We are adjusting to downsizing and a different way of life; therefore, I am starting a new blog, “Saltwater and Sawdust”, which should be up and going very soon.
I hope you’ll join us over at Saltwater and Sawdust as we begin a new chapter on updating a new house and living salty!
Y’all have a great day and hope to see you soon!
That’s right, the clock is ticking on my deadline! If you remember, I gave myself a deadline of May 1st in this post to get the To-Do List done! Well…..that is NOT going to happen! (I’m making a face and rolling my eyes at the computer screen right now). Since that last post (which I can’t believe was six weeks ago), Mr. and I have spent six days in Dallas at a conference, eight days in Oklahoma, and seven days on a cruise for Mr.’s 50th birthday! Sadly tho, also during this time, Mr’s 99 year old grandma passed away. She was a wonderful g’ma and lived a long and wonderful life! She will be missed by all, but we have lots of great memories of her!
Therefore, I have had approximately three out of the past six weeks at home. So one would think I would have lots scratched off the To-Do List. But alas, I don’t! BUT…I do have the upstairs bathroom 99% completed. Well, not 99%, but closer than I was when I started! 🙂 I need to finish painting one side of the door tomorrow and have Mr. hang it and I’ll be finished! Woohoo! At least with Phase 1! The countertops and faucets still need to be changed out. As you can see, the sea shell sinks are still here! And there are two in this bathroom!!
The floor is holding up great! I dropped a metal level on it and Mr. knocked over the metal toilet paper holder. No scratches! Yay!
If you missed me talking about the linen closet also in this post, I removed the door and I love it!
We bought this picture in Galveston from a local artist at Galveston’s ArtWalk. The Galveston Art Center hosts it approximately every six to eight weeks. If you’re ever in Galveston on the weekend of the ArtWalk, be sure and attend! For more info: http://www.galvestonartleague.com/ArtWalk.html
Here’s a recap of what’s on that wonderful To-Do List for this bathroom and what I’ll be scratching off at the end of the week!!
replace tiles in tub area and walls (I’m scratching this one off for now, since we’re not replacing – but updating)
- replace faucet/showerhead in tub
replace flooring (Again…just updating for now)
- install new countertop and sinks (sea shell sinks again! Two of them!!!)
- replace faucets
- replace or frame mirror
paint cabinet (will keep to save money)
- change out lights
take door off linen closet
And in case you forgot what the bathroom looked like when we started, here’s a before and after shot for ya!
Y’all have a good week! Later gators! 🙂
