I will paint anything that stands still. And I've used a glue gun on more things than I care to admit. But when it comes to the hard-core projects, I don't DIY. And I certainly don't let Mr. Sugarplum do it, either! I don't mess around with load-bearing walls and jack-hammering tile. Especially when I have a rockstar contractor who works faster than I can blog it!
This is not a pretty post, but it's behind-the-scenes and progress. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can catch-up on this un-planned project here.)
Gah! I can't even imagine trying to rip all that out!! And thank goodness I have the pros on it, since most of the wood was wet and rotting, they had to replace the entire side of the bathroom. Not to mention the plumbing they have to do on the faulty drain and shower head. Dang, am I ever going to miss those big plastic knobs on brass plates! (You read that as sarcasm, right?)
The good news just keeps piling up on this project though. Turns out the corner of the bathroom is completely unused space. Huh, good choice Mr. Builder.
So that wall came out, too, and I'm getting floor-to-ceiling linen cabinets! Yay for more room to store crap!
And you see this greatness?
Hole? What hole?! TWSS They popped this piece of something up (sorry for my lack of vocabulary, but I have no idea what I'm talking about with this kind of stuff!), and are going to work some magic to make it blend with the rest of the wall!
I'm pretty psyched about what's happening on the other side, too. Not to mention grateful that I didn't attempt it myself.
And after hearing so many horror stories of renovations gone bad, I can't sing the praises of my contractor enough! What types of projects do you leave to the pros?
