I Lied!!!

I'm not done with the floor tile. I found some more loose ones the other night. Part of me just wants to just grout them in and call it good, but they will most likely pop up later and result in more work. And I've had about enough of extra work.

I am almost done with the window sill and hope to get pictures of that up soon.

Stay tuned again...

Back to work!

I'm finally getting back to working on the bathroom and to adding posts. Hopefully, it will continue.

Quick update on progress:
- Finished putting down loose floor tile that didn't have thinset under them.
- Slowly rebuilding the window sill with wood putty.
- Plan to grout or at least mix a test sample for the color we are trying to achieve.

Stay tuned...

Bathroom update...

I actually did some work on the bathroom this past Saturday. I managed to strip most of the paint from the window sill. The last few layers proved to be much more of a pain in the a$$ than the first few. And it didn't get to the point of seeing the beautiful wood, covered by years of paint, moment that I had hoped for. What made it easier to stop was knowing that it would be painted white anyway. At least I think it's going to be painted, unless Mrs. Forest had a change of plan.

I also started rebuilding the missing portion of sill with wood putty. I went with some cheaper stuff, again because it was going to be painted. Of course, it's not going as smooth as I thought it would. But then again, nothing ever does...
