Labor Day

We took Labor Day seriously by laboring away in our bathroom. What started as "hey, let's take down the wallpaper and paint the bathroom" turned into a much bigger project than expected. First, this wallpaper was clearly designed by SATAN and consequently took a dozen hours to fully remove (and we haven't even finished the ceiling - yes, they had wallpapered the ceiling, who does that?!). It also did a fair share of damage to the walls, so we'll have to do some patching.

One thing led to another and we were dreaming up big changes, but we're holding back and just replacing the mirror/vanity for now. But even that will take more labor than expected - changing wiring to move the lights on each side of the mirror, patching a part of the wall because the Ikea model we found doesn't quite fit into the hole in the wall, etc.

But don't worry, we also got some quality water, sun and BBQ time in this weekend - more to come on that! In the meantime, if you know of anyone who does pro-bono bathroom work, send them my way :)
