Working hard, or hardly working?

{A Bathroom Re-do}

We are still in the process of fixing up our home. We have much to do still, but we're taking it little by little. I've been waiting to tear into the bathroom.

Holes needed to be patched, the walls painted, and the mirror was screaming "help me!" We are in the finishing stages and I'm looking forward to the end result.

Here is our work in progress.
We're putting up board and batten. I'm super excited for this. I love this look.

Painting the boards, getting them ready to be nailed up. Two of our empty Panda boxes came in handy for this job.

Painting the walls. We went with a green celery color. White on the bottom, green on the top.


The day I started this project our local Panda Express was having their family day. Buy 1 get one free. Can you say A-W-S-O-M-E! I got there at the perfect time, just before the line really got long. I ordered 10, two entree meals. Since it was buy 1 get 1 free I only paid for 5 of them. Kurt thinks I'm crazy. I didn't hear him complaining though.

(I hate it when I'm working on a project and I have to stop to make dinner. This was perfect. Not only did I not have to make dinner, I had lunch for after church the next day. Even better!)

We are replacing the fan in the bathroom with a light/fan combo. The room is soooo dark, and this will really make a difference. Kurt had to climb in the attic to replace it.
Kurt stuck his head down through the hole and was talking to Gavin. Gavin couldn't figure out where he was, and kept looking in the toilet. He couldn't figure out why it kept talking to him. He finally figured out to look up, and saw where Kurt was hiding.

I couldn't get Eli to stay off the ladder.

We are framing out the mirror, which I know will do wonders for this space.

I am hoping to get it completely finished by the end of the week.

I love the board and batten look. I haven't seen it anywhere here yet so maybe I should start a trend. :) Can't wait to see the finished result.

That's too funny about Gavin looking for his dad in the toilet. That's so Kurt!
