Home Rehab Day 28: Tiling and Styling!

We took more boxes and such to the house today, and we were able to reorganize a bit so it’s becoming functionable!

But before we go any further let’s pause for another DIY style moment:

I’m kinda jealous of Poppy’s headband.

So retro.

Now, onward to tiling…

We broke out the wet saw:

We were able to get enough tile cut to get me started in the shower. I was a little nervous since I’ve never tiled before (and I’m working with a mix of tile), but I think it’s going okay!

IV worked upstairs until he needed to make a hardware store run. He headed to Lowe’s and set us up for success tomorrow.

Can’t wait!

Also, tomorrow is this cute guy’s birthday!

Moving on up to 6 years old!

Praise the Lord!

Home Rehab Day 22: Bath, Floor, and DIY Fashion

Taylor came out and made even more progress in the bathroom today…and then he was gone.


IV took over, and as soon as he gets the walls framed in and the backer board up it’s all me with the tile!

Also, IV’s going to nail up some beadboard in the bedroom and then I’ll be able to finish painting.  After that, I’ll get to work on the wood floors!


That’s a full week’s work lined up for me!

While Taylor was working in the bathroom, IV was clearing the way in the kitchen…IMG_20170722_135427_933

That plank floor is super cool but it’s only that section…the other tongue and groove flooring is buried under layers of glue and nails so we have to come up with a solution here.

This is the bigger picture:


Much to do…

But we should all pause here and give IV some major style points for his outfit of the day. 🤣


Gotta love him!

(And he’s gonna kill me.)

Praise the Lord!
