home improvement…..and it begins

The Infernal Revenue finally pulled their heads out and sent our income tax refund…it shall be the last one we ever get as both of us are retired now…so we hemmed and hawed, we argued, we pleaded and we finally decided…………

the entire refund will go straight down the toilet!

Oh wait a second….not actually into the toilet toilet, but into the bath remodel we so desperately need!

The 1920’s bathtub is scheduled to be removed…next week! Then we pick up the shower kit (did you know you can buy a kit? Like a model for kids only ginormous) and it will be installed.

We’re keeping the stupid sink……it looks horrid, but it still works. We’re adding a shelving unit between the sink and the shower. We probably will have to replace some of the flooring but that’s okay.

It’s going to be a total pain getting the tub out of the house, but the guy who wants to buy it is coming to help tear it out…so I figure it is his problem.

I ordered the shower kit today, and the shelf unit. I get to pick up the shelves tomorrow afternoon, and then get to put them together! I love putting stuff together. George keeps saying I should just leave it in its box until we are ready to install it…………..but I really don’t want to.

That would be like getting a present and never getting to open it! Where’s the fun in that?

So, I’m off now to go through my ten thousand paint samples and decide what color we want the room to be…………..George wants a pale blue…..I was dreaming about hot pink, magenta and orange myself.

We shall see.

  1. Enjoy your project. Tell George that we have a spare room with a pale blue bathroom for when his eyes burn out from looking at hot pink, magenta, and orange. The only thing hot down here is the weather and girls in bikinis.

  4. Thank you for sharing!… after all these years I have come to the conclusion that when it comes to “home improvement” there is no beginning and there is no ending… πŸ™‚

    1. there is actually an “end” in sight. the floors and roof must be redone…but I am hoping for a grant to do them both.


      1. Well, I hope you get your wish, and the grant, but is seems there is always something that needs doing… πŸ™‚

  5. We only had to replace the shower here as the bathroom was probably the best room in the house as regards decor! I shall be thinking of you in your new bathroom which will be finished by the timee we’re ready to start on our kitchen! (hospital appointments come first)
