New Chandelier Over Tub

Still waiting for the tile for the shower but until it gets here we did get the chandelier from Lowes.
 That night Ron got it installed.  
 It is really sparkly.
 It looks so pretty against the snow.

This side of the bath is now finished!  Yippee.

Closer, Closer, We Are Almost Done!

Alright, got a lot of pictures of the master bath project for you today.
 Got the massive tub in place and hooked up.  NIGHTMARE!  Thank goodness my husband is a man of infinite patience, strenght and skill.
 I think it looks great against the tile floor.
 This tub is 6 feet long and 3 feet wide.  We brought it out about 9 inches from all the walls so it's footprint in the room is huge.
 This tub is not meant for a small bathroom.
 Next day we brought in the vanity.  It is made of solid wood so it was a bear to move.  We took out the drawers to lighten it up a bit.  Really love this vanity.
 Here it is pushed back against the wall.
 And a few hours later the drawers are in and the marble top is on.  (Also heavy!)  The faucet is brushed nickel and super cool looking.
 Another angle.
 And just before going to bed that night my husband put up the curtains.  
 Today we put a little extra storage into the toilet room.  No more running out of toilet paper.......
One last look at the bathroom.  We can close the curtains for privacy.
We are working on molding today.  Lots of painting and sawing and nailing.  Maybe the tile for the shower will get here soon.  Then we can start on it.  Oh and the light above the tub is still on order........and the shower door we want appears to be on back order........so we do have a bit more to do before we can relax,,,,,,,in that giant tub!

Master Bath--A Few More Projects Completed

The new tile floor is in!!!!  It is that cool new tile that looks like wood planks.  We choose a grayish barn wood look.
 Here is a pic of the tile without grout.....
 Closeup.......
   Area where vanity will be going.....
 New vanity light.......
 Grout on tile........
 Always looks so much better once the grout is in........
 And once the grout had dried the toilet was installed!!!!!!
 Vanity mirror is now on the wall......
Love this mirror.  It is huge and matches the vanity which we hope to install in the next day or two......once we get the tub in and a little more molding painted and put up.
It is really getting close now......I can feel it. A week or two and we might be finished.

Embroidery Buddies!

I just finished machine embroidering some sweet little blankets for two of my nursery children at church.  They are turning three next week and I thought a personalized snuggle blanket would be just the right gift from their teacher.
 I got the blankets from Country Club Embroidery Blanks face book shop.  They are very reasonably priced and they ship quickly.  The quality is very good too!  And if you purchase from her there are free embroidery designs to match the stuff toys.
 The lamb is for a little girl and the puppy for a boy.
The designs stitch up nicely too.
I have already ordered more buddies for upcoming birthdays!  Don't want to run out and disappoint one of my little ones.....

Almost Ready To Tile

We are finally seeing a end to all this remodeling.  The walls have a coat of primer on them and the shower is ready to tile.
 The toilet room is also ready for the floor to go down.
 Here is the main room where the tub and vanity will go.  The vanity arrived today.  460 pounds that had to be unloaded from the back of the pickup.
 I thought it would be fun to show you the tub we ordered and have waiting to be installed.  Six feet long and super deep!
 And below is the vanity we just got.  I love it.  It is so well made and has a beautiful finish.  Don't know how we are going to hang that mirror yet.........guess I need to do a little Internet research.
Tomorrow we are picking out the floor tile!  Once the floor is down we can move in some of the fixtures.  Yippee!

Demo Done In Master Bath

Finishing up week 3 of the master bathroom remodel.  The Onyx shower pan is in.  It is a massive 4 foot by 4 foot and weighs a ton.  So much fun dragging that thing in.  Today we got in some of the green board in the shower surround.
 and more drywall work done.
 All the wiring is done and some of the pipes have been moved.  Below you can see the Redi Tile shower niches.  I am so excited to have storage in the shower that doesn't include a nasty wire shelf hanging from the shower head!
 Below is the new shower light and fan.  Super quiet.
 We scraped off the fake stained glass film off the window which gave us our view back.
 Keeping it real, I thought I'd show you all the stuff we have to move to do each new job!  The drywall has been plastered for the most part and sanded.  Well at least half of it has been done anyway.  This area will be where the new vanity is going.  By the way, the floor isn't really white, that is all the drywall dust!
 Last picture is of the new doorway into the bathroom.  I am still working on that plaster.  Side note......never try to pull out a nail you bent without first making sure you have a good grip on it.  Claw hammer slipped and gouged a lovely cut above my eye.  Picture this.  Me running out of the room with my hand over my eye, blood dripping, saying "Oh crap" over and over.  My husband who was doing plumbing in the basement came running to me and that was what he saw.  Must have looked a little scary, until the blood was cleaned off it wasn't really much after all.  But I did have bit of a headache for the next day or two.  Getting hit in the head with a hammer will do that.
Maybe I will show you some of the goodies we have waiting to go in on the next post......
