Just found out the bathroom floor tile that we special ordered is in at Menards - whoo hoo!

Bathroom Snapshot

I haven't posted in a while because we do not have a project completed. But who cares, right? We have at least one "in progress" at any given time.

I loose track of time but I think it was two weeks ago that Polly Anna put in the tub surround.

This is the bathroom on Day 1:


This is after removal of personal items and floor tiles (thank you Gandalf):


Work in progress:







This is the new surround:

The Rise of the Kitchen Floor

These are two photos of the kitchen floor when we bought the house:



Polly pulled up the floor tiles to reveal this:



He chiseled and scraped his way to this:



Then added black and white Armstrong vinyl tiles. Below is the mostly finished product:



Job well done Polly!

Happy F*ing Valentine's Day Home Depot!

Or - How Home Depot tried to screw me again...

I got three gallons of Behr paint on Tuesday at the HD in Kohler. I specifically asked if paint would go on sale soon. If so, I would wait until a sale to get my paint. I was assured that paint would not go on sale. The employee even indicated that, as head of the paint department, she "would know".

So, Thursday paint went on sale - a five dollar mail in rebate per gallon.

I went back to home depot and explained the situation the the box of rocks behind the service desk. She responded, "I would have to return your paint and then re-ring your paint". The statement was delivered with a look and tone of voice which clearly indicated how crazy I was. At that point, I said, "Yes. That is what you will have to do".

After 7 (I counted) sighs, I received my newly dated receipts. Thanks a lot, HD!
