Fixer Upper

We got a jump start on the upstairs bathroom this week since it's been rainy and Mike's been off work.  Normally the bathroom upstairs has about 10 boxes of Marley's old clothes in there. I sell them online (Tiny Monkey Resale )  So the first step was taking all those out of there.  Next we took out the toilet and the nasty old paneling that was in there.

As you can tell this bathroom is right off the "hallway" that leads to our bedroom.                                                               There is no door. Who needs privacy anyways?! 

This picture shows it the best. The ceiling of the bathroom is slanted. So if you're taller than me at a whopping 5ft 5 inches and you stand near the toilet, you will hit your head on the ceiling.  We can't really fix that, which is why it's perfect for 3 foot tall Marley. 

Then we made a trip to Menard's for all the supplies we would need. Since this will eventually be Marley and Corn Tuck a Tuck's bathroom, we let Marley pick out the color. She picked shocking green. Which is NEON GREEN!  We have some wood/laminate flooring already that was given to us, so we're going to use that.  And where the paneling was we are putting some more paneling, but it looks like white tile so it's a major improvement over the wood.  We also had to get 2 pieces of drywall to finish the wall in the "hallway" and some other necessities.  We ended up spending $100.75.  Not to shabby for a bathroom remodel.  So in true Mike fashion, we got home around 9pm from Menard's and went to work.  We are maybe halfway done as of right now. For a 25 sq. foot bathroom we sure are taking our sweet time.

Our hallway wall.  Exciting huh? 
We should be done soon. Then we'll move onto the big switch a roo of our rooms. One day Marley will be so excited to be upstairs and other days she'll say she doesn't want a new room.  Silly child.
