New bathroom

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Well after living in our house for 13 years I finally had the downstairs repainted. I was always going to do it myself but it was an overwhelming task with all the wallpaper I had to take down first. So with the added stress of taking care of my parents I thought now I really have an excuse to hire someone. He did a great job and watching him, glad I never tackled it. Well new paint...Have to spruce up some of the rooms. Lets start with the bathroom. Counter and cabinet looking bad. Oops also new toilet now because I accidentally dropped lid in tank and broke it when toilet wouldn't flush. Well toilet was very low, lets get a higher one for my mom and us in near future. Of course we need a special size (learned about rough in) so special order and more expensive. My brother says he will help me it should only take a few hours. 8 hours later toilet is in. One obstacle after another. People at Home Depot were our saviors.
( And my brother has installed many toilets with ease). That was yesterday. Today is new cabinet and sink. He assures me it will go smoother.....we'll see.

    Congratulations on your bathroom redo! My husband and I have remodeled all three of our bathrooms in the last couple years to get ready to sell our place. Everything takes longer than planned. We joke about measuring our projects by the number of trips to the hardware store.

    It will be worth it. Just seems like a forever job when things don't go right first time. And when it is all done the other rooms will look so in need of a spruce up. \hope you have saved plenty.

    We had a similar thing happen with a pedestal sink. We couldn't get it to install so gave it to our daughter whose happen is very handy. They had to get a plumber and it cost about 3 times the amount of the sink to get it installed.
