A little bit of weekend sweat equity and about $500 in materials brought a nice update to the bathroom. Some paint colour changes and an installation of Shaker room batten style trim work.
Another good hand cleaner is made by adding a pinch of Baking Soda to a squirt of liquid soap. The tiny grits in the baking soda help the scrubbing action, but are not rough on your hands.
Mix liquid hand soap and sawdust for an excellent hand cleaner – the abrasive action of the sawdust makes a big difference.
It only took a couple of years (start here) but worth the wait I think 🙂
We bought this tub through Sears, its made of fiberglass and acrylic. A few months after we bought it we found another style at Rona, which, for $200 more was better styled and thicker walls. Almost like a slipper foot style, but I was committed to this tub, so it stays.
Now, let me preface this by clarifying I said earlier “I’ll get to it.” Ok…ok…yes, its 30 months later. But at least its getting done! Right? 🙂
The hallway to the bathroom needed to be fixed, along with the bathrooms themselves. It took a few days to get it all done.
Well, we’ve been in our brand new house for about 2-1/2 years now. The dear wife says its time to remodel. 😮
Spent the day finishing installing the Durock cement board, installing most of the drywall except where the plumberneeds to work. I’ve been told that 1/2 plywood could have been used or “green board” (moisture resistant drywall). I opted to use the Durock.
Removed the tub and framing. Patched the hole where the tub drain went through the floor.
