It’s late. I’m tired. I pushed too hard today.
Around 4:30 pm I got sick of twidling my thumbs and staring at the paint on the counter. Remember I said we were going to remodel our bathroom? Well I decided today is the day. As in I started painting at 4:30 pm.
I’ve got the first coat on and some of the second coat but now we are up in a debate. Several actually.
Debate #1: Are we going to tile it or hire someone to tile it? Craig is getting in the field now, we don’t know exactly what we are doing, we can’t take the boys anywhere for the weekend to really get into it. Craig’s co-worker suggested someone local, we called him and hired him and he should be able to fit us in actually pretty quick! That debate was solved and I’ll order the tile online in the morning.
Debate #2: The toilet. I say we are getting a new toilet but what the heck, who knows ANYTHING about buying a toilet?! Thankfully, our tried and true Home Depot also has a tutorial on how to select a toilet. Got one of those picked, also going to order one in the morning, also talked to a guy who can install it for us.
Debate #3: The tub. I love our tub. It has jacuzzi jets. There’s nothing wrong with it. We primarily shower upstairs and the boys always bathe downstairs. It’s just this awful cream color. So do we just replace the wall? What do we replace it with? Should we replace the tub too? Should we tile the wall and leave the tub? The tub is pretty old… our tiler suggests tiling it all the way to the ceiling. Should we paint it? IDK! I’m still not sure about the tub but he said we could tile it all for a pretty cheap rate but not till mid May.
Debate #4: The vanity. I bought supplies/a kit to transform the cabinets to a charcoal grey, we would replace all hardware, and keep our same shelving which we don’t hate but…if we switch out vanities, or want to switch out the vanity, now is the time to do it while we are re-tiling! UGH! I was eyeing a few DOUBLE vanities online too! Spendy but CUTE!
Debacle #5: It’s so hard to work on anything with the boys around.
Anyway, that’s where I’m at. I’ll finish the paint tomorrow, do some more research and go from there. Any thoughts and opinions are welcome. I’m new here to the remodeling world and while I love a challenge, this is challenging.
