At this point, either we are committed or we need to be committed. Why did we think we wanted to start this project?
We've lived in this house for 8 years. We've never done anything with our master bath other than talking about doing something with it. No more.
Say good-bye to the 1980's style wallpaper. It started coming off today and it wasn't easy. The only area we completed is the small area above the shower. This is going to be a looonnng process.
Once the paper is all off, I'm eliminating the popcorn. That awful popcorn texture on the ceiling. I hate that stuff -- it's too hard to keep clean. You try to remove a cobweb and you get a face full of popcorn.
Then there's flooring. We want tile. Several people have told us how easy it is to "do it yourself." I suppose we'll try that.
Then it's time for new light fixtures, new drawer/door hardware, new towels, new accessories. Oh, and did I mention we'd really like to have a new tub/shower unit too? And add in a big shower head.
Have I forgotten anything? Can you see where this is going? And why it may take months to complete?
