2 weekends of updates – I missed last weekend and we had started tiling! So here’s a recap of progress from the past 2 weekends.
The weekend of the 15th –
Friday and Saturday Ryan got the Kerdi system installed in the shower after sanding the bathroom. Once sanded I was able to see what needed touch ups in the spackle department and I worked around his tiling project (mostly last week). Sunday the tile started going in! We went with a grey porcelein tile and a marble mosaic accent tile to break it up. The same grey will go on the floors too.
I got more spackling done (Ryan and I spackled late Saturday night), some electrical (got the outlets in Alex’s room figured out so now we have 3 working outlets and I just have to wire up the rest of the circuit. The boat also went in the water officially that Saturday so we have been enjoying some breaks out on the Lake!
This past weekend…
We stayed late Friday night again after putting the kids to bed at the house. We spent the night spackling some more – I finished up the bathroom touch ups and worked on Bella’s room while Ryan got one side of most of the corners in Alex’s room done.
Saturday Ryan finished tiling the shower!
The shower looks awesome! We’re waiting to grout until some painting is done (paint comes off tile easily but not grout) 🙂
Sunday I sanded the bathroom walls/ceiling for the final time and cleaned up. Then I got primer on the whole bathroom – it dries in 1 hour to recoat so then I got the first coat on the ceiling! Monday night we returned and I got the final coat on the ceiling so that’s officially done. We’re going over tonight so I can put the first coat on the walls!
Paint colors for future reference:
Behr Ultra paint used Flat Ceiling for ceilings and Eggshell for walls. Colors ‘Swiss Coffee’ for ceilings and ‘Beach Foam’ for bathroom walls.
Once the wall paint is done we’ll tile the bathroom floor. We can’t grout the floor until we get the doors (a few more weeks on those) but we can grout the shower. We’ll also work on trim – we’re going to do bead board in the bathrooms so the bottom half of the walls will be white (Linen White Satin Impervo from Benjamin Moore for all trim just like our old house).
We’ll get another late spackle night in this week probably (one of us not both) hopefully as I’d like to get Bella’s room closer. I bought fabrics for making curtains and matching pillows for the girls rooms as well as the shower curtain and window curtain for the bathroom. So now I have sewing projects too!
