Bathroom Race

Originally uploaded by modernemama.
The race is on. Although the boys' bath was started way back in late fall 2006 and the girls' bath only began last month, it's going to be a toss up which gets finished first.
Porcelanosa called today to say the tiles are in for the boys' bath, then I got a call to say the vanity I bought on ebay for the girls' bath had shipped and I put two coats of Benjamin Moore Cotton Balls on the girls' bath walls. In an attempt to stop spending money I also soaked the shower head in Oxy Clean until it actually delivered a decent flow of water. I was surprised at the weight of the shower head when I unscrewed it, in fact I almost dropped it. If that had happened it would probably have gone right through the bath and then we would have had to replace that and of course all the tiles too.
It could so easily have been a very expensive remodel after all.
