Home Improvement

December 4th, 2007

One day Mike said to me, “There’s a lot of projects I could work on but I’m going to do one of the one you want done.” And that was the start to the master bathroom home improvement project.

For years, I had noticed the wallpaper curling on the edges in the bathroom. We also had a broken floor tile. For me all I wanted was the wallpaper removed and the walls painted. Mike thought this would be too “plain” so he added the wainscoting to the project list.

We started out by taking down the wallpaper. The girls helped with the first layer of wallpaper removal. I wet the walls and took off the second layer of wallpaper.

Mike did the remainder of the work including painting, changing several of the fixtures, adding wainscoting, caulking and fixing the broken tile. It was an on and off project that took a few months. Luckily, the bathroom was usable during the entire project. Getting a photograph of the final room is tricky but this photograph gives you an idea of the new color scheme and design.
