Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic Easter weekend! We sure did! We celebrated my son’s 4th birthday, Easter and the kickoff of soccer season. We intended to take a break from our remodel, but my hubs wasn’t having it. He’s ready for it to be over!
We finally made a decision on flooring in our master, and although it wasn’t tile like I originally planned, I think I’m much happier with our choice. After some research we chose to go with natural bamboo and it turned out fantastic! It is so warm and spa like. (More details on that later.)
Our master bathroom has two parts. It has a closed off toilet/shower part and a vanity and tub part that is open to our room. The builder actually put carpet in the tub/vanity area and that just grosses me out! It looked terrible. We are recarpeting our master and there is no way I’m putting carpet back into the bathroom, so we had to make a decision on flooring. At some point I need to come up with a way to close off the bathroom to our bedroom. Maybe a curtain? Sliding barn door (I’m loving the looks of those!) Hmmm…I’ll tackle that at a later date. For now I just want to get this remodel done!
This is our bathroom with its disgusting dingy carpet:
So this weekend my husband tore it all out and started to lay the bamboo.
We got a little further on our dining room too! I had no idea how much work it would be to prep, caulk,and sand all of that trim!
Even with tenting it off, there was no containing the dust. My hubs keeps informing me that dusting at this point is like shoveling snow while it’s still snowing, so for now it will just keep driving me nuts.
We had drywall to repair:
For this part we called in a professional. There are just some things that you’re better off not doing yourself. So there it is. I can’t wait to show you the completed project! We are getting there! Thanks for all of your comments and opinions about refinishing the stairs. I think I’ve made a decision and I’ll post about that sometime soon. It won’t be long now! Thanks for coming by!
