This weekend was more bathroom madness.
Friday night my mom called and asked what I would be doing on Saturday, I said dentist appointment (at *gasp 8 am), bathroom stuff and errands. She said well I think I am going to come over. Apparently she was planning on being bored and wanted to help me paint the bathroom. Cool beans.
Saturday morning I went to the dentist and was informed that since I broke the tooth below the gum line I most likely will need to have it removed. *Sad* So I got a temp filing, a nifty full mouth around the head x-ray and a referral name and I was on my way. I still haven't called the oral surgeon because basically I know it will cost money and I am scared. blah
Anyhoo, mom came over around 10 and we went to Chez Depot for a few things. Then I had to hike over to the bird store because we were out of food for the "Chickens". It was the first time at the bird store for mom and she seemed to enjoy looking at all the parrots.
So back at the house I wiped the remaining wall paper paste off the walls and we commenced painting. It was cheap because I used left over paint from the living room. YAY cheapness. Well after the first coat of paint mom decided she was no longer bored and went home to hang with dad. So I decided to strip paint off of the medicine cabinet that had 4 layers of paint on it because it looked horrible.
Ugh just got interrupted with work...how rude.
While waiting for the stripper (hehe not that kind) to do it's thing, I finished the second coat of paint and fiddled around with things in the bathroom, like sanding and crap like that. Stripped the bubbled up paint off and it was such a mess began contemplating that maybe it was a bad idea. The I realized I had to patch the big giant holes in the wall that our electrician made. Basically because tile won't stick to holes. So I had to bring out the sheet rock again (pic of patched hole on left). Beyond tired on Saturday, went to bed around 10:30 because that's as late as my body could muster.
Sunday was the changing of the clocks and I still woke up at 8 a.m. Tried working out but was just too tired. All weekend I felt completely run down, but that's besides the point. I decided to make my second trip to Chez Depot of the weekend, in which I purchased, primer and white spray paint for the medicine cabinet, foam rollers and a rubber door stopper thingy so the door won't break the tile walls.
We have some tiles that fell off the wall when the electric was being done and I was trying to figure out how to either put them back, find replacements, or find another solution. So I had a piece of tile and was looking for some kind of accenty type tile. Found nothing at the depot. So I called my mom and went went to the Big Giant Tile Store Extravaganza Depot Warehouse. They have a lot of stuff so I thought I would find something. Alas the Big Giant Tile Store Extravaganza Depot Warehouse had nothing that tickled my fancy. Bastards.
So I thought maybe AC Moore or Michael's would have some kind of crafty mosaic thing I could put as an accent. Happy days! They had mosaics in a color that I could use as a complement to the horribly ugly pale yellow tile that takes up about 60% of the room. So I mosaic-ed (see left) and painted trim and tried to clean up a little bit. It isn't perfect but it was a cheap fix because we need the bathroom looking somewhat presentable by Thanksgiving when we are having approx. 15 people for dinner. So the mosaic works to cover the bare spots where tile is missing, or where there were complete holes in the wall.
So that's the bathroom fun. Can't wait until we get a little bit of money and are able to gut the bathroom. That will be so much fun. And I will be able to get new fixtures. In good time.
