Part 4. Wow- I thought I’d have this one in the bag long ago. You too, huh? Thanks for hanging in there with me! If you’ve followed along this far through our mini bathroom makeover adventure (click here for part one, or here for part 2, and part 3 is here), you might be wondering if we have a floor anymore. Yes. Yes we do.
With any project, especially of the DIY kind, come great opportunities for learning. Learning through failure, that is. (You like where this is going already, don’t you?) DIY-ing on a budget, for instance an extremely tight budget -like ours, presents it’s own set of difficulties. You’ve heard the expression, “you get what you pay for”, right? Well, what if you can’t pay for hardly anything? What happens when you can’t afford to be very choosy?
Hey there! Were you in suspense after reading Tuesday’s post? You lost sleep, didn’t you? Yeah… sorry ’bout that. I fully intended to post Part 2 yesterday. However, I ran into some tech issues and spent the day learning that I don’t know squat. But never fear! We are back with part 2 of Our (teeny) Budget Bathroom Makeover.
When I moved into my husband’s home almost 7 years ago, it was a total bachelor pad. He used the home as a place to eat and sleep, and the rest of his time was spent out in the barn, or working 60+ hours a week. The weeks leading up to our wedding involved a major plumbing overhaul (thanks Dad!), and some pretty intense cleaning (thanks Mom!). The place was quite neglected long before Prince Charming took ownership. As such, I’ve run into my share of mouse spines and old termite damage in my efforts to give it some love.
