Guest Bathroom Re-do

 Day one of my bathroom destruction, April 23, 2012.



Gross........................ :(

3 weeks later, looking better! I see a sign of hope!!! Sheetrock on the walls and plywood ready for my floor!

This very sad bathroom, (which was way too sad for "before" pics) is slowly being transformed into a beautiful guest bathroom, which will also serve as Daemyan's bathroom. For years, this was the "boy's" bathroom and later on, "Whitey's" bathroom. After discovering how soft the floor was by the tub one day when I was brave enough to enter, I decided that it was time for a major face lift (for the bathroom, not me.....although.....oh never mind.......
So, after ripping out the ugly paneling that I had painted over years before, the warped vanity, the much hated linen closet, the grungy bathtub and the wall between the shower and the throne, we were ready to rock and roll!
One of my High School bff''s hubby is a carpenter, and our neighbor from our first home in Stanwood is a plumber and so I railroaded them into helping me with this project, (actually into doing ALL of the work), but that's besides the point!
Today, one month later, the floor will go down in my newly painted bathroom. Vanity and linen closet next week. Still picking out shower materials. (I've got to come out of my sticker shock first!) I went with just a shower, rather than another tub-shower. Guests normally take a shower rather than a bath and so does Daemyan. Besides He can always use mine if he gets a hankering for a bath.

I realize that this is way more exciting for me than it is for you :(

TA DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woo hoo! Turned out even better than I had pictured it! Love it when that happens!

Next, the vanity and linen closet.....

July 1987-May 15, 2012

After a long fight with laminintis and other health issues, I made the decision, with my very caring and humane vet's approval to put Mel down today. I didn't want to see him suffer any more and though I am broken-hearted, he is now without pain. Without going into a lot of detail, I am assured that I made the right decision and as animal lover will understand, he was almost "telling" me it was his time, which was confirmed by my vet. He will be greatly missed.

April Happenings

Wow, I can't believe April got away from me!
I had to look back at picures to figure out what I was up to!

I am always fascinated by the progression of my flowers in the spring, so I usually get out there and practice my photography "skills". I got a new camera, point and shoot, nothing fancy, so I'm still learning!

Thanks for looking!
