Last update 6/1/2016
I am tracking our bathroom upgrades, partially to keep my non-financial records in one place.
First, I scheduled the countertop replacements so we could have under the counter sinks. In retrospect, it might have been more practical to buy new cabinets. However, I made a trip to Home Depot and selected 2 different types partially because I cannot visualize and thus this will make the choice for the master bedroom bathroom easier when we reach that point.
First, I removed items from the walls and discovered one should never, ever use liquid nail along with screws and wall anchors to attach a magazine rack to the wall. Obvioiusly, drwall replacement will be included now in the update plans.
Note that this magazine rack cannot be used again because that drywall is NOT coming off.
We will not discuss what the library and living room look like at the moment as they've become the "staging area" for everything that is going on in the kitchen.
The countertop installation date will be June 9. In the meantime, I have purchased flooring for the downstairs bathroom only and have scheduled an estimate for some work on the cabinets.
