Definitely a Tortoise

Remember the childhood fable called The Tortoise and the Hare?  Well, I'm definitely the tortoise.

We started a project a month ago to give the downstairs main bath a face lift.  I'm still plodding along.   Slow and steady may win the race, but I have yet to glimpse the finish line.

In my last installment, I lamented that the sheetrock had damage from removing the wallpaper.

Since then, we have

Fill with spackle, then sand



Mask the room with plastic and mask yourself!  Respirator required!

I have also painted the trim with alkyd paint which I'll cover in another post.  Baby steps, but the fun stuff is coming soon!  I hope to have a reveal before the end of April.

Oh gosh you are going at an awesome speed. Do you have any idea how long I have been working on my bedroom. Take your time with these things so it stays fun and you don't burnout.
It is going to be beautiful.
