LIttle by Little....
It's becoming a bathroom again!
Amazing how such a small room can take so much work to complete!! After the tile cured for a couple days I did the grouting and caulked around the tub I put 3 coats of tile sealer on...
I wish I could go with glass doors on this tub have to look into it...its not a "normal" tub with the extra length at the back....I put the handles on ....this is a Moen, and Im not too happy with it, everything is so crapily made these days! Where is the quality? Probably in the $300 faucets? I really wish I could find some old ones made of all metal! I don't think these will last long..
Then I stained the floor
I nailed on the baseboards, then installed the toilet..
I got the tall oval in white...once again not top line I will eventually replace the seat; why do they put these floppy seats on a new toilet? There was one marked down because it had a cracked seat I thought of getting it but was afraid the bowl may have a hairline crack...so here is the Throne..*G* the water is not turned on yet...so I'll fill it to check for leaks once the floor is dry. And record that first flush!!
I put down one coat of Poly so far it needs 2 more...then start figuring out the vanity and the rest of the fixtures to finish it all off.

And I found 2 wood chairs for my dining room at the Habitat store I think they are maple, love the carved backs...Now I have enough seating to have a dinner party!! :0) They are quite sturdy for a simple chair.
I have ordered the 3 canvases for the living room wall as I mentioned....and I expect them to arrive any day now..
