I Did That





I finally put my money where my mouth is and did some work on our project. "Our" because I recommended it, and he's been doing all the work. That is until now.

Now I see why people pay professionals an arm and a leg to do this. It looks so easy on all those DIY shows, but they don't show the real work. And although I had knee pads, my toes hurt, and my hands are definitely not as soft as they were before all of this.

Suffice it to say, we'll finish this project, but I won't be clamoring for us to do any more such tomfoolery any time soon (read "ever again").
I'll post more pics when its all done. Until then...

Be Safe.

Thanks, it was really a challenge. I think I pulled a muscle in my arm lifting whole boxes of tile. (Against my husbands advice, trying to prove a point...arghh)

LOL!!! Lil' Miss DIY... seems like you were the one who got done! HA! You're so funny... using words like "tomfoolery" n' such... I learned my lesson with DIY when we painted our kitchen a couple years ago... NO THANK YOU!
