Our construction continues, and with Thanksgiving next week, I will have to perform amist tools, dust, draping, and no completed dining room. No matter how well planned things are, SOMETHING always delays SOMETHING!
What can this grandma do but roll with it, right! After all it is the last room to be done and can be assured that NEXT year we will definately have a dining room to be be THANKFUL for. I have been promised it will be done before Christmas. In fact, if he can get the wall textured this weekend, painted over the Thanksgiving weekend, then carpet can be laid the following week and I can begin decorating my finished home for the holidays.
I can't believe it will be finished...we have been working on it for so long. Like another blog I have found, we too have done it all on CASH basis, in between work, travels, work, parties, work, medical test, and 3 weddings.
Allow me to recap this unpredictable, sometime frustrating, JOURNEY!
We started with the master bathroom in 2002 when we found out I would someday be in a wheelchair. That project took us 4 years to finally complete. (actually, if you add up all the time it comes out to like under 2 years) Sounds like a long time but we got very detailed in the tile work and are are so happy and proud of the finished product. It doesn't even look like a handicap bath.
AND WE DID IT ALL OURSELVES!
We added the french doors which are now painted black and frosted.
