It is Friday already! Time certainly does fly. I guess when we are busy it flies even faster. This past week we have been giving the guest bathroom a make over. I previously cleaned with Clorox top to bottom, painted the walls gray and painted and antiqued the vanity, put up a new oval mirror I painted and antiqued it. We started last Friday and thought it was going to be a two day job taking off the old flooring and putting tile down, grouting it and putting in a new throne. No such luck. Every inch of the old flooring was glued. Scraped, patched, sanded and primer took days. Then put the new tile down and grouted it the next day. The new throne was next and it was an American Standard. They use to make them in nearby Salem but this American Standard was made in Mexico. First of all the tank had a big crack down the back so it was returned for another one. New tank on and it seemed to be fine. Last night the seals started leaking. Fred could not fix it so off today to buy another throne, (NOT American Standard) remove the broken one, return it and install the new one. I cannot wait to scrape off the flooring, patch, sand and primer the master bathroom. Then new tile and grout. It is three times as big as the guest bathroom. At least we already installed a new throne in there. It will have to be pulled up for the flooring job...bummer! While I was telling Fred I would like to put a roof over the deck and basement entry way he very nicely said, "You should have married a contractor!" Working on a giraffe when I can this week. This is a picture of my sweet grandson. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
