Bathroom Update

Well my husband worked late into the night & all day again today. My tub & shower surround are beautiful!




Unfortunately, there are 2 leaks in the plumbing. My husband has not really done any plumbing before & was soldering his little heart out. I really think that 2 leaks is not bad for someone who hasn't done this much, but obviously he just wants to be done & is really disappointed.

He could have had it fixed tonight, but he took back some of the parts he needed already. Once he gets that fixed, my dad can come in & work on the walls.

The bathroom will be done in crisp white bead board & a pale green apple color. This is similiar to what I'm doing.


My guys have worked their hearts out & I love them so much for all of their effort!

Only 2 leaks??? And he's a first-time??? I'm completley impressed. Of course, I don't know anything about plumbing. But, I'm still impressed ;-) Can't wait to see the finished product! And I'm sure you can't either!

That is going to turn out so fabulous!!!!! Mine is in mid-deconstruction/construction so I can appreciate how far you've come!

WOW! He's done great! Even experienced guys have some leaks. I have one that even a plumber can't seem to find. I have a recent hole in the dining room ceiling from the new upstairs shower to prove it. LOL so I do know how how feels! I love that green. Mine had bead board also and I've been playing with a wheat yellow color, but maybe I need to go bolder. Thanks for the inspiration!

It will be so beautiful when it is finished. We need to figure out a day that we can meet. Tuesday & Thursday would be best for me because Kolby is in school those days. Let's figure a date and then a middle place to meet.

That looks gorgeous! I really love the color, I might consider that when we redo ours in the spring. We badly need a new tub and shower with shower surround. We bought this house last year but its a 70s model house lol with the blue tile and everything. The bathroom was the only part of the house I didn't like. Hope you get the plumbing sorted!

I guess that's why plumbers make so much money, huh?? That sounds like a longgggg day and alot of work, poor thing. But your bathroom now looks pretty fantastic!! I really like the green color too, it's very original and fresh looking.

Thank you for stopping by for the birthday wishes!
