Antiquing the legs of my mom's old 1914 clawfoot tub! 🛁 Lots of work still to be done at my late 1800s, childhood home, but there is light at the end of the tunnel as we ready the house for renting! Dividing my time between being a caregiver for my mom at my own home, working, taking care of my family and being a weekend (and weekday) warrior DIYer is exhausting! It is a true labor of love - updating, while showing reverence to the past. 💗 The #homedecor community is so supportive and inspiring....especially when my drive is flagging. 😘
Yes, I’m posting a pic of my bathroom. Why? Because it’s come so far from the scary wallpapered mess it was before! I’m so proud of it. I wish I had a before pic but I can’t seem to find it. Thanks to @josh_cole_az for all of his sweat & hard work. Our little fixer upper home is coming along! It’s been somewhat of a slower process but it’s moments like these that can make all the difference 🖤 #fixerupper#homesweethome#cactuslover#bathroomremodel#hardworkpaysoff

Here is our bathroom in all its 70’s glory! This is the next project up on deck. We are thinking, enlarging shower, removing drop ceiling, new vanity/lighting/mirrors, new tile, freestanding tub...so pretty much everything is changing. This is exciting and terrifying at the same time. I am still in the space planning stages of this makeover (we are taking this one SLOW), so I would love feedback if you have gone through a master bath remodel!
A week ago when Jeff was removing the wax ring and part of the drainage stack, he called me and told me he was feeling overwhelmed and like he was in over his head. We talked and I told him to just stop what he was doing and come home. It was time for a break-Rome wasn’t built in a day. Fast forward a week later and here he is with a totally different demeanor and attitude... and with newly acquired skills and knowledge. So grateful for all the sources of knowledge that have come to our rescue during this journey. Also, in case you can’t tell, I’m über proud of this husband of mine ❤️

A lot of the hard work we’re putting into the house have to do with things that hat no one is ever going to see! But that’s how it is with old houses. When it’s all said and done, we want a house that not only looks good on the outside but that is also in top notch condition on the inside. We now realize that is going to take MUCH longer to accomplish than we initially thought... but that’s okay. We are enjoying the process and are so happy for everything we’ve learned thus far and are excited for everything we have yet to learn from this home renovation journey.
The restoration of the original bathroom vanity continues. Today I took on the brass hardware. With a little #brasso and some elbow grease, I could hardly believe they were the same knobs.

Our home inspection pointed out that at some point there had been water damage in the corner where the tub and toilet meet, but at the time there was no way to know if it came from the toilet or the bathtub or the extent of it. It wasn’t until we bought the house and started poking around that we realized it was definitely from the toilet and that it was bad enough that something would have to be done about it. When we finally exposed the subfloors we were disappointed to discover that the water damage might also extend underneath the tub 🤦♀️ and then we kinda held our breath and crossed our fingers that that wouldn’t be the case- as that would require the removal of the existing tub. And once removed we’d probably just end up replacing it and reinstalling a new one and if anyone has ever been quoted for a tub removal and install then you know 💰 💰 💰 and that CERTAINLY WAS NOT in the bathroom remodel budget. Today we made some exploratory cuts and discovered that THANKFULLY, the water damage does NOT extend underneath the tub nor to the floor joists. Hallelujah, our bank account just breathed a sigh of relief 🙏

We hit our first couple of bumps in the road last night. We weren’t able to get the correct tools to complete the bathroom demo and we found out that more likely than not, our windows were not properly installed. We were suppose to have finished taking off the tiles on all the window sills so that our contractor could come in today and do some drywall work, but we decided to not go any further when we realized our window frame was sitting ON TOP of said tiles, which were sitting on top of 2 inches of mortar. I swear, the tile work in this house is gonna give me a grey hair or two. We will have to wait and see what our contractor says this morning. I did start taking off the bathroom wallpaper so... at least I can say there was SOME progress made yesterday 🤦♀️

We continued demoing the bathroom over the weekend. We were surprised by what we found underneath the shower tiles. We had watched lots of videos on YouTube on how to replace the tiles around our bathtub but all those videos showed a totally different type of cement backer board underneath the tile work. What we found was about 2 inches of cement/mortar over wire mesh, over drywall. It left us scratching our heads. After a few hours on google, we now know it’s a very old, outdated method and that it’s called a “mud wall”. Thankfully we found a very helpful video on YouTube that explains how to safely remove it without damaging the studs or the surrounding drywall. Is there anything you can’t learn on YouTube? now off to Home Depot to buy a angle grinder and a masonry blade.

We finally finished up what seemed like never ending floor prep and had a few hardwood floor refinishing companies out to give us some bids. For a hot minute we were seriously considering refinishing the floors on our own, but now we are not so sure. We got some very competitive bids and will get a final bid on Saturday before making up our minds. Decisions, decisions. On the bright side, with the floor prep completed we were finally free to begin the bathroom demo.
We've got some serious decor envy whenever we see people getting in touch with their wild side. This bathroom absolutely stuns with an evocative jungle print wallpaper from our friends at @rebelwalls. Their wallpaper murals are innovative and totally unique, turning any room into your dream theme. 🙌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lazy Sunday 😴 Just lit a new Autumn candle and put my jammies on 🙌🏻 Going to lie on the sofa with my kindle. Currently reading ‘Three things about Elsie’. It’s not my usual type of book (I like suspense thrillers!) but it’s for book club this Thursday! It’s going to be our first meeting after organising it for 10 local women on the ‘Next Door’ app. #wishmeluck#hopefullytherewillbecake 🤪
