What was a simple repair has turned into a remodeling project.
It began with the hot water shut off valve under the sink leaking. It has to be replaced. It's hard to work inside the sink cabinet (think contorted on your back) especially when the old shut off refuses to budge. Why not remove the sink and the base cabinet for easier access?
Should I mention that the wall was damaged as it came out? LOL! Since we have to fix the wall, we'll have to paint it. Guess we'll go shopping for paint. Here we are trying to find a paint color that will go with the ugly gold tile in the bathroom. We're going for a bolder color this time.
The sink cabinet didn't survive the removal very well. It is being replaced with a pedestal sink that we purchased today.
I've never cared a lot for that faucet. Shouldn't we replace it too? Shiny faucets water spot. So why do they sell so many of them? Luckily, we had purchased a new satin finish faucet for our second bathroom (which still has to be remodeled).
Hubby didn't like the old baseboards so they're going to be replaced too. LOL! We picked out a trim color to paint them.
We might as well replace the wall cabinets too.
The plumber will be getting a call soon.
Kitties aren't real impressed with what's going on as you can see from these pics. That's Pookie on his double decker pizza box hammock. He loves it so what you gonna do? Boo is upside down in hubby's chair. I cover it with towels to protect it from fur. The towels are easy to wash, the upholstered chair, not so easy to clean.
In the meantime, t
The wild Opal socks are finished. I've got a couple of new design ideas bugging me. I worked on one of them yesterday.
I've signed up for two swaps on Ravelry. One is the Autumn Sock or Scarf Swap and the other is the Amazing Lace Swap. I've got my swap partner for the first one. I'm starting to collect items for Ja
Our garden is winding down. Most of the plants are dying. I've been freezing tomatoes for use this winter. I have to get out and pick the pear tree. One of the limbs broke it has so many pears on it. As well as giving some of them away, I may make pear sauce, pear butter, and/or pear jam.
So much to do, so little time...
