Happy Birthday Sissy!!!! For Janae’s birthday this year I told her I would write a post so she could have the day off. Feel free to to wish her a happy birthday in the comments because I’m sure she will check those out.
I’m excited to share with you my latest remodeling project! But first a family picture because they are my favorite :)
So my latest project was the main floor powder bathroom. This wasn’t originally at the top of my list of project priorities, but when your son comes up from the basement telling you water is pouring down from the ceiling every time someone flushes you tend to make it a priority :O
So this is the before picture. I don’t know if you can see in the reflection but the door opens into the toilet, which drove me crazy! Also not quite sure why you would need double sinks for a powder bathroom?
The whole room needed a complete overhaul! When we lifted up the linoleum to find the source of the leak, we found that the leak had been going on for quite sometime. The subfloor was completely disintegrated! We were lucky no one fell through! We needed all new plumbing and electrical. Luckily my hubby knows how to do both because I have absolutely no desire to learn how to do that. I like doing everything from sheetrock on :)
I saw this tile and fell in love with it! $1.29 a sq/ft from Floor and Decor (just in case you fall in love with it too :).
The final product! I love how it turned out. I found this antique table on my local classifieds for $120 and turned it into a vanity.
I know a wood countertop isn’t ideal in the bathroom but I love the look of it and since it’s a powder bathroom it doesn’t get as much use. So I sanded it down and applied a coat of tung oil on it every couple of days until I had eight coats. Then I let it cure for a month. In the end you get a much more water resistant wood :)
Now a couple random happenings…
One of the little ones found his sister’s polaroid camera and I have been finding random pictures throughout the house :)
I never know where I will find a kid randomly passed out sleeping in my house… he barely made it into the house from the backyard :)
Has this happened to any of you??? One day I’m going about my day picking up kids from school and when I get home I happen to glance in the mirror and see a bald spot that came from out of nowhere?!?! Somewhere there is a big clump of hair with my name on it. I went into the dermatologist and I guess I have Alopecia. Luckily my mom blessed me with a lot of hair…so comb over time :)
Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for letting me take over for the day :) I’m going to be joining Janae on part of her 33 mile long run. She will be posting all about it on her Instagram!
Any home projects you are working on?
Has anyone else had sudden hair loss?
Tell Janae happy birthday because I’m sure she will read them (a few times… she loves birthdays;).
