Bathroom Remodel

Dad has been remodeling the downstairs bathroom for the past six months. This past week he began on the floor, so he is about halfway done with the project. Here is a picture taken before Dad started taking the bathroom apart-IMG_2780and below are some pictures that I took this morning:

DSCN2368DSCN2372DSCN2370Dad pretty much took the whole bathroom apart; the toilet, sink, and tub came out, and he repainted and installed a new shower unit. Then he did some rewiring for the heated floor, and a little plumbing for the pedestal sink; last week he laid the wiring for the floor and spread mortar over it. The mortar is still wet, so I had to get these pictures from the carpet in the hall 🙂

When the bathroom is complete I will post finished pictures, especially of the shower unit which is amazing!

Painting in Our Craft/Etsy Room

DSCN1914.JPG Late last week we started repainting our new craft room (Kerstin moved out, and since we use this room for all our photoshoots for Etsy we are turning it into a craft room. We should probably just call it our Etsy room though 🙂

Dad has been busy remodeling the bathroom downstairs, so the job of painting the room fell to Gabrielle and me. At first we were only going to repaint the green walls. However I did some touch-ups on the opposite walls and ceiling that didn’t didn’t blend in, so I ended up painting the whole room. I stayed up late last night finishing the ceiling, and although I didn’t get much sleep, at least I don’t have to paint today!  Yay!

Our plans for the room after the paint has dried a bit more include moving our Etsy inventory in and hanging pictures that our nieces painted. We also want a comfy chair or sofa to curl up to knit or read books in and new blinds or curtains.
