Remodeling the Bathroom. . .

Image found here.

This weekend we have been working on remodeling our guest bathroom.  Yesterday morning, Jimmy and I went to Ikea and picked out a sink, vanity, and medicine cabinet that we liked.  We stopped off at Lowe's for a few items and then headed home.  Jimmy managed to get the old sink, vanity, and medicine cabinet out of the bathroom and also assembled the new medicine cabinet.  I (all by myself!) took up the old vinyl tile on the floor.  Of course, at about 9pm we realized that we had brought home the wrong sink and had forgotten to get legs for the vanity.  So today it was back to Ikea for us (it's about a 45 minute drive away)!  Now we are working on taking the texture off the walls before we put down the new tile.  It's a nightmare! 
I'll be posting some pictures of the mess soon.

  4. Christina - It's turning into not so much fun. lol I just hope we don't kill each other before it's all over.

    Sarah R. - That is funny. I think you should do the cabinets. I loved the colors you picked out!

    Collette - I sure hope it turns out well! Thanks for the vote of confidence. : )

  5. The only good thing about making mistakes while that USUALLY you don't make the same ones again. I love to re-model. I've had to turn many a sow's ear into a silk purse in order to have a place to live. Good luck. I look forward to the pictures.

  6. cinful - That is very true. Our house was built in the 60's, so we've had to do a lot to update it. We get better with every project we do, but this one is a doozy!
