Gitt'r Done!

Hello all! I was hoping to come to you tonight with a finished bathroom to show off- all sparkly and clean and new. But alas- there is still more to be done. I had set a limit on how much I wanted to spend on the remodel and we reached that limit on Saturday. So it was time to take on the finishing touches myself. Sunday I spent part of the day grouting tile and painting.



And last night as I sat on the floor of my bedroom trying to cut baseboards with a mitre box instead of a mitre saw (I really want one of those!! So Bad!) I wondered if it would have been worth paying the extra money to have these things done so I wouldn't have to be up past my bedtime covered in saw dust.  


But just as I was starting to despair the inside corner that I had cut for the baseboards actually fit together; my measurements were in fact accurate! I swell of pride and accomplishment was such a good feeling that I remembered why I decided to take on the rest myself. I love working on things with my hands and seeing a final result. I'll be able to say that I worked on a part of this bathroom no matter how small.

So with those thoughts in mind I leave you with a short post with the promise of a finished bathroom to be seen soon; to go and finish cutting the crown molding. Wish my luck, I'm going to need it!
