There's No Turning Back Now

Family and friends!  It's been over half of a year since I've posted anything, for no good reason other than I've had nothing to post about.  But as of last Thursday the beginning of July (I even procrastinated publishing this post for nearly 2 months!), we have officially started our next renovation and finally have something to post about.  Since you aren't all nearby to see each stage, you can follow along right here if you like!

If you remember our updated goals for this year, we're finally getting around to #1 on our list - the upstairs bathroom!  In that post I listed the many, many, mannnnny reasons that this room needed to be redone so I won't revisit that now.  I'll just show you a few pictures to jog the memory and knowledge that it.needs.to.be.done.

So last Thursday in the first week of July we got to demo (thanks to Darryl's Dad who devoted a few hours of his day to getting us off on the right foot!), and demo continued for another three days.  Who'd have thought that one tiny little room would take more than the 1 day timeline we had originally projected??  Ha!  Out of curiousity I just had a scroll through some of my first posts from when we demoed our entire main floor and saw that we hadn't entirely remembered the lesson we had learned the first time around: when you're DIYing, things always take longer than expected.

So Thursday (July 4th) morning I had my last shower in that bathroom.  It was my last bonding session and farewell to that poor little guy (and my last chance at a half-decent shower).  That evening, there was no more bathroom up there...

I'll share the demo pics with you very shortly - and if I can stand it, I may even show you where we've been showering for the last 2 months *shudder*.

Have you done any demo recently?  Knocking anything off of your to-do list?
