Less remodeling

After further review...

Wife has decided that maybe we'll cut the remodeling short.

It all started when she decided to make everything match a $10 shower curtain she liked.

So, after new floors and new paint, she decided we needed to do a little more.

That "little more" meant replacing the toilet since the tank was cracked. She decided to get one like she always wanted: chair height, dual flush, slightly different color. So, we did.

And, of course, we needed a new vanity top. So, we did.

And, of course, that meant a new faucet. So, we did.

And, since nothing else matched the faucet, new towel racks, toilet paper holder, and such. So, we did.

And, since she wanted a walk-in shower instead of a tub, that meant ...

As I explained earlier, that meant new shower. Which meant shower doors. And that $10 shower curtain that started it all would be replaced.

She thought about that. Plus, she did a quick total of how much it had all cost to date, and how much it would cost to replace the tub with a shower.

So, no shower. Not this year, at least.

Which means, once I get a shower curtain rod that matches the faucet in the sink, we're done.

And no more long trips to the other side of the house at 3:00 AM.

  1. I feel your pain. *heh* Painting the kitchen cabinets here at twc central resulted in:

    new countertops, new dishwasher, new fridge, new wall color, refurbed cieling and new lighting, new faucet.

    But we kept the sink!
