The only two things we have to do with this house is to remodel the bathroom and kitchen. Hmmm…that’s not too bad. Yeah right.
Those two rooms are the two most expensive ones. There isn’t all that much to do in the bathroom. I went out yesterday and picked up the ceiling and wall paint. The problem is that the people who did the work the first time were on crack. I wish they just left the sheetrock bare, so I could finish the room correctly. It looks like they smeared the wall spackle with their kid’s hands. Now, I have to do it over. Yee Haaw.
Here is a list of what I have to do in the bathroom –
– Fix ceiling and paint
– Fix walls and paint
– Buy new bathroom vanity, cabinet, mirror and lighting
– Install new tile floor
– Install new moulding
This isn’t too bad, considering we were going to gut the entire room and redo it. Now, we just want to make it look nice. It’s a small area, so we can’t go too crazy. Also, we have to keep in mind the maximum value of the house. As I always say, we could line the thing in gold, but we can only get so much for the place when we sell.
Here are some photos of the fine craftsmanship the previous homeowners left for us…
As you can see, they neglected to sand the spackle. Hmmm…that’s an idea, but it could’ve saved me some time and paint if they had spend a few more hours on this project.
This is the one half of the existing bathroom. You will notice that the paint is green. Do you know what the reflection from the green walls make your face look like when you are looking in the mirror? I’m sure you get the idea.
