The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8



in with the new




This was quite the reno.....almost everything we did...we did at least twice. It started with the sub-floor....the fella (Bob) who installed the original floor glued it down with excellence in mind....it took about 13 man hours to take it up literally one square inch at a time....argh!
Take old mirrors and vanity out...fill and sand, fill and sand, fill and sand...then prime, paint..hmmm...fill and sand some more, prime and paint again.
Hang the mirror...mirror falls off the wall, breaks....hang second mirror. By this time, we were really laughing at the challenges at every turn. We expected complications with everything, and for the most part, we were not disappointed.

Dido that! What a transformation. I mean it looked great before but wow, it's like a show home! Dustin and I have done all our own reno's on two homes, we flipped them. We had them down to the plywood, but what a payoff. It's a lot of work hey? Now we're building a home so it's a treat. But kudos to you both...fabulous!

Very swanky! I am in awe of you as usual. Looks like a showhome. You did a great job - twice the trouble means twice the pleasure in a job well done. Good job Bob!

Really lovely!! And well worth the wait for pictures ;o) Lots of work - but you and Bob do make a great team and the results are wonderful. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy for a while!

Wow. I haven't read your blog for 2 weeks! Such fun posts going on! I want to comment on them all, but I think that wouldn't be too productive for my work day. :) Have a good day Joanne!!
