Since I was off work for almost two weeks (which is unheard of), I'm out of school for a few more weeks (again, almost unheard of), and I (gasp) don't have too many other things on my to-do list other than DIY projects, I figured I'd start to tackle one of the projects which has been on the painfully slow moving to-do list for awhile. Like, for a year and a half.
Step into my
This is Tyler's bathroom. Well, kind of. I took this picture after I had already started in on some of the makeover. Oh, not those blue blocks. Those have been there for a year and a half. Yeah, I'm a little slow. I had already started moving in my tool friends and had removed the cabinet doors by time the thought occurred to me to grab my camera and document the process for you blogger friends of mine.
The next few pictures are courtesy of my over eager six year old. Ty wanted to help SO bad but there was just no way I could give him a paintbrush during the (much dreaded) cutting in phase. So, I told him he could be the photographer instead. I must say that the kid might have some talent. At least they came out clear. This pic is of me cutting in around the tub. Unfortunately, Tyler doesn't know how to zoom in and out on the camera so he didn't capture the interesting way that I had myself positioned with one foot on the edge of the tub and the other braced on the back of the top of the toilet. This is dangerous work, people!
Another photo of the cutting in process. I HATE CUTTING IN! I don't mind painting. . .well, not a whole lot. . .I don't love it while I'm actually doing it, but I like when it's done. I'd like painting much better if I could just snap my fingers and have it be done. Regardless, I HATE cutting in. It's slow, it's painful (seriously! My wrists hurt really bad right now. Typing is killer after painting for several hours!), and it's dreadfully boring. I'm much happier when the cutting in part is over. And right now, it's far from over. So, I'm far from happy.
