About the pictures.....

Just as a note.....the bathroom remodel pictures are hideous but they are a work in progress. Our home was built in 1971 and has not been remodeled since then. I have stripped wallpaper, painted air registers, painted light fixtures and removed all the crown and trim around the tub and door. I have still got to finish stripping the wallpaper, scrub the adhesive off the wall, spackle, sand, paint, install beadboard, new trim, hardibacker on the floor and then lay tile. After that, I get to grout and clean that mess. Then I get the honor of reseating the toilet and installing the new vanity that has been sitting in my living room for 2 years!!!!(I told ya'll this was taking foreeeeevvvverrrr)!!!

Maybe after all of the above gets done, I can then have fun with my decorating. I have a new shower curtain, mirror, shelf, and hooks to hang towels on.

My joy will be short lived I am sure. I have a 13 year-old son who cannot remember to put his dirty clothes in the hamper or how to hang a wet towel up. Hmmmmmm, maybe I will hide the game controllers until he remembers how to keep the bathroom tidy!!! I am sure that will do the trick (bwahahaha)!!!

Until next time have a great evening!

Bathroom redo- during

Here are some pictures of the bathroom remodel that is taking forever. I've got the materials ready to go....I just have to get the time to put them in. I've picked out some great finishes to fix this room but you'll have to wait and see the end result. I have taken the old paneling out (which went 4 foot up the wall and was brown maple paneling) and removed the old medicine cabinet which left the lovely hole in the wall. I am in the process of stripping the old wallpaper which has really been a test of my religion!!! I am officially banning wallpaper at the Hollingsworth House!

The new bathroom is going to be light and airy and much fresher looking! Hopefully those pictures will appear soon! (Note: It is never a good idea to remodel your son's bathroom when the has to share your bathroom during the process!! AAAAAHHHHHHH, I could just pull my hair out sometimes!!!! (LOL)

Does anyone out there have some remodel pictures they would like to share?
