Painting and Remodeling

What started as a simple paint job ended with a wall being pulled out of the old bathroom.  How did that happen?

On Thanksgiving morning I got out my paint can to finish a job I started almost 7 years ago.  I painted to as far as a person can see in our house without heading up the stairs... literally half way up the staircase......(side story: since we had to replace our microwave and remove the old one, I painted the small area I couldn't reach when it was installed) with that being finished and the can in hand, I finished the remaining walls going up the stairs and to the bedrooms. I had wanted to paint our old bathroom for years, but, with our plan to actually remodel it, I had waited.  But, I am sick of the paint in there and decided a $20 paint job for a few months (more likely YEARS) would be OK.  When I headed to Menards for my paint (which was on sale for only $8 with rebate by the way...yay) I mentioned it would be nice to tear out the old shower so we can see what we will actually need to do to finish it...for good!  The last time we ordered stuff before ripping things out we ended up ripping out more than we thought and our cabinets were too short.  NOT THIS TIME!  So, I have a half tore up bathroom, but I am OK with that.  At least it looks like we are trying to do something in

OK, so other than that, life has been busy.  I worked most of the Thanksgiving weekend.  It was fun, but tiring.  We had a early Black Friday morning sale and it was a little crazy.  The day went pretty fast though.

So, off I go to see what Menards has for right.

Since you now have lots of practice remodeling, you can come here and I can have you do a couple of remodeling jobs here. LOL

What's up with this, you don't have any snow? Then where the heck is all this white stuff coming from? It still hasn't stopped. Grr....
