A Work In Progress

Today I started my DIY project -the half bath. This room has need some serious attention since I bought the house but it always seemed another project or activity took precedence. This is the wall paper in the room ( don’t judge me-I didn’t pick and have never liked it)



I planned to get all the wallpaper off and at least get a coat of paint on today. Um I don’t know about you but where are the Bath Crashers on DIY network when you need them. First I went to take the baseboard off and found someone had put enough caulking on them for 10 houses. The nails were not the usual ones used to attach baseboard and I could nail them straighter into the wall than the so-called professionals that did these walls. A quick trip to Home Depot enabled me to get the tools I needed.

Then I discovered I am going to need to take out the sink. As par for this project I cannot get the faucets and nut off of the old sink. That will have to wait until tomorrow and I enlist some help.

I didn’t get as much done as I wanted but it takes time. This is my first major DIY project and am excited about undertaking it. I will share the project with you and provide periodic updates. But if you do see the crew from Bath Crashers can you send them my way.

      I figured I would start off with a small room and I have another bathroom if I have to spread out the project. I have always wanted to try my hand at remodeling so there is no time like the present. I will definitely keep everyone updated
