An update of progress.
We are still working on the main floor bathroom. The tile is finished, grout finished, dry wall finished - all but last sanding, sink plumbed- installed - removed for final staining of mirror frame, over-toilet-cabinet installed (needs to be scraped and repainted), bathroom cabinet partially completed, paint color chosen.
Several weeks ago I went through and made a list of everything that needs completed on the main floor with the exception of the kitchen - 3 pages long - rather overwhelming. Oh well. I guess I wished I'd stayed in the dark and kept thinking oh we just have a few more things to do. Eh - what's done is done....and what isn't - isn't.
We do probably have a better attack plan at this point and way to stay more on track. That's a plus!
Here's my take on drywall. Hanging it - great workout - especially for muscles you're not currently introduced to. You also learn to use your head as a arm/hand appendage. Great stuff.
First round of mud and tape - hate it!!! Probably due to wanting it to look perfect instead of changing my mindset to - umm - put it on - you're going to sand it off and then it will look fine!
Second round of mud - ok - I like this stage - rather artistic - you can see what it's going to be.
Third coat - walk away - don't touch it, quit messing with it.
Then it became rather addictive and I started mudding things that didn't need mudded because it made it look like PLASTER!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh - it's beautiful!!!!
Can't wait to get back to it so we can do the final sanding and paint.
