Take Tue: Cones and Construction

It’s Take Tue day!!! However, I don’t have a super fun post for you guys (worst person ever.) But I will fill you in on the 2 big reasons I am so unprepared…and I promise it’s not “the dog ate my homework” bit:

1. Yesterday Beau had to get the big (well in his case, little) snip done.  And I feel like the worst puppy parent ever. I know it has to be done, but seeing my normally happy-go-lucky boy so mopey and miserable, hurts my heart.

And since mister fussy couldn’t leave his sutures alone (even with the small cone), we upgraded to the Biggest. Cone. Ever.

Yes, you can laugh at his expense. I just wish everyone could see this circus in real life. Priceless.

2. Kevin and I have started our next big house reno project. Adding to our master bedroom a walk-in closet and bath. It’s going to be so nice once it is done, but, man, it is going to be a lot of work in the mean time.

One of the things I enjoy about new reno projects is learning new skills. Thus far I have become much better at mudding drywall (and considering I had never mudded before, I think it’s a grand improvement!)

We have framed in the two rooms and hung, taped, and mudded drywall for the closet. The next step will be sanding and painting the closet drywall then hang the closet organizers, and rough in the plumbing for the bathroom.

Be prepared for some pretty sweet pictures (do you know how hard it is to take pics of framing and drywall?! You really can’t tell what you’re looking at.) But nonetheless here they are!

You can see the doorframe leading into the new bathroom on the right side of the new stud wall.

View of bathroom from new closet.  The toilet will be on the right in front of the shelf and the shower on the left where all the crap is leaning. (Um p.s. found the closet door leaning against the wall at Lowes with frame, pre-hung, and painted white for $25. Score!) 

Closet. Please appreciate that drywall mud job. I think I may have a new career…not.

I am finishing up a really fun little project and hoping to share that with you guys next week! Until then, share what you guys have been working on. We always enjoy seeing your DIY projects and reno's!!

Xoxo, Christie
