Talk about scary...

This house is so clean after the party that I hardly recognize it!

Storage Ottoman

We have been talking about buying a storage ottoman since we moved in ALMOST A YEAR AGO and yesterday we finally got around to doing it.  Mako is very pleased by our decision.

He climbed right on as soon as we brought it in the house and hasn't moved since - even when I pushed it around the room trying to find the best place.  I'm glad he likes his new bed.

All we need is the perfect mirror...

Bathroom - Day 71

Check it out - our showerhead is now installed!

Chris couldn't wait to take a (fake) shower.  Also, our toilet - which we just bought yesterday, is already installed and operational.  That was fast!

Isn't it lovely?  I never thought I would be this excited about a toilet, but here we are.  Being an adult is weird.  And if both of these new bathroom additions weren't exciting enough, the vanity and vanity lights also went in today!

It's even more beautiful than I imaged.  Now all we have to do is buy a mirror.  Hooray!

Wallpaper In Progress!

Bathroom - Day 69

Are you ready for the worst panoramic collage ever?  Here it is!

See, wasn't that terrible?  Unfortunately, it was the only way I could think of to get the entire shower stall in one image.  The lighting in there is pretty iffy right now, and it doesn't help that it is mostly dark by the time I get home from work during the week.  So weird, ill-lit pictures are the best I can do for now.  Trust me, it is better in person.

But yeah, isn't the tile awesome?  It is exactly what Chris and I had hoped and dreamed.  And the floor is pretty great, too.

We've also gotten some new windows since the last update.  These actually open without a crowbar - and they stay open without props.  Amazing!

As you can see, the drywall is all smoothed and painted and wonderful.  You know what that means - it's wallpaper time!

Our rolls arrived today and I think they will be going up pretty soon.  We're going to be buying a toilet and a mirror this weekend, I think, because I am told things will go pretty fast from here.  I can't believe it is almost finished!  As Aunt Candy said on the phone this evening - I never imagined I would be so excited about a bathroom.

Bathroom - Day 58

My bathroom mostly has walls! Hooray!

I took these pictures on Saturday. Since then, work has begun on the tiling. Well, there has been prep work for tiling. There is now cement on the floor of the shower stall. I am not sure what comes next as far as prep is concerned, but I do know that I am really excited to see it all tiled up.  I have heard some rumors about the tile that will be put in, and let me tell you - it sounds like just what I was hoping for.  I am so excited!

perhaps you would like to check out some free newsletter templates?  newsletters are a great way to share information with co-workers, family, friends, and clients - and these particular templates are the best!

Bathroom - Day 53

So, here are some pictures of my current half-walls.  As you can see, it is starting to look like a legitimate room.  How exciting!

Also, I was only a half right when I guessed that those panels in the last post were the ceiling.  They were for the ceiling, but there will apparently be something going over those panels.  In any case, there is now a hint of a ceiling.

The room looks a lot... taller than it did before, with that dumb drop ceiling.  I am so excited to see this room finished!
