I'll admit, this is a text-only post. So here I am, just jumping into the story of our bathroom remodel and our fireplace restoration (can I really call it that?). What's the relationship? I started talking a bit about all of our planned projects here but never really described our "logic". Are we just going at this all ass-backwards? Back around Christmas, when we finished up the small Rec Room Project we decided to take a break and quit renovating for a while. Of course, that didn't stop us from doing our entry (which now needs to be entirely redone and WHAT? I never posted that? Okay, I will) but hey. We vowed, at that time, to approach it all with a bit more rationality. A bit more, you know, control.
Things happened, life moved on, and we became motivated to get the bathroom overhauled this summer. And well, as with any major reno project there is always the opportunity to just add a bit more on. I mean, why not? Who doesn't want to do a massive reno project all at once (/sarcasm)? With our bathroom reno, we decided to absorb a closet from our master bedroom. With that, we realized we would have to remove allll the furniture from the bedroom so then we got thinking - why not take out all the furniture on the second floor? It's only one other bedroom. And with all the furniture gone, we can get the floors refinished! You know, I just realized that I never posted a tour of the second floor. So add that to the list (entry project, second floor tour, oi).
BUT WAIT, why finish there?! My God, the hardwoods are the same EVERYWHERE. We wouldn't want the floors to be a little off, would we? So with that, we decided to take all of the furniture out of every room (leaving us with just the rec room and kitchen) with hardwood and have them all refinished at the same time. And rip off the last bit of remaining carpet on the stairs - get it all done, oh!! Exciting, right?
Well, you know how we got the house releveled? and rewired (oh wait, it appears I never wrote about that. My list is getting long!)? All of this led to some serious wall repair - walls were cracked throughout the office, master bedroom, stairs, entry, living room AND kitchen. Only a few - and all after we painted everything (oh and wow, I never posted that either). So we patched and decided to wait for the electrical - which punched little holes everywhere and moved numerous boxes and blah blah blah. End result? Patches, patches everywhere. We just hung art, placed furniture strategically, etc. No big deal, right?
Apparently, you want to prime that shit up as it keeps throwing dust. And you wouldn't want that dust in your newly finished floors, right? Right. So what does that mean? Time to finish up all the patch repair! And paint!
