Right now, we are in the process of remodeling our main bathroom in the house.  It was quite the fashion victim in the bathroom world.  But, oy!  I am already tired of this remodeling business and it has only been lil over a week!  We remodeled a lot of our home when we first bought it...but that was years ago...I forget how much of a pain it can be.  I guess no pain, no gain


Have you ever remodeled anything in your home??

    Currently picking out colors for the upstairs bathroom. It's a nightmare for DIY'ers but think of how pretty it will be when it's done

    Yes it is!  :)  What colors are you thinking of using for your bathroom?

    I was thinking like a deep blue accent wall but I can't find the perfect shade yet. Then white mocha wash for the pine wall that I couldn't get rid of without major major work done

    Remodeling is SO MUCH WORK! We did our entire kitchen over the winter: cabinets, new appliances and moving the location of appliances, building a new island, stripping wallpaper and painting...

    And now I love it!

    I hope you feel the same about your bathroom once it's complete. What all are you doing to it?

    I have a dh who says "hire someone to do it if you want it done" so that's what I do...I pulled the carpet out of our home...we lived on sub floor for 4 years and finally put down interim flooring until I make my mind up of what I want...the interim flooring was put down 3 years ago...I still can't make up my mind.

    We've done small things, which my dh never seems to finish. When Derek was three my dh and his friends closed in the dining room to make a room for him. He still hasn't put up the molding on the new wall which is in the living room. He laid new flooring but never finished the parts by the doorway. Aaargh.

    We completly updated our old house before moving.  We did a full kitchen and both bathrooms from cabinets to countertops and fixtures.  Replaced all old tile flooring with new wood, put in all new baseboards, bullnosed the corners on the walls and painted every room. We however did not do the work ourselves.   Even took on the landscaping for both front and back yards after the inside was done.  It was a huge mess and we had a 3 year old, an infant and my eldery mother in law living with us at the time.  We sometimes would have to wash dishes in the bathroom sink.  So glad it's over and not sure I would ever do it again.  Have to say it was an amazing house when we were done.  1970 ranch met the 2000 updated ranch.  Good luck on your remodel project - sure it will be amazing when your done.

    This is my favorite color scheme. Both my bathrooms are done in browns and blues. I hope you find the right shade soon!

    We remodeled the master bath in our old townhouse during the six months between receiving our referral for our older son to travel to bring him home. It certainly kept our minds off that long wait. Though there were many times we thought that the remodel would make us lose our minds. (And except for the painting, we hired people to do the work.) Good luck to you!
