And the award for the longest bathroom remodel in the history of Lottabusha County and possibly all of Mississippi goes to [insert drum roll here please] Suzassippi! Technically, this remodel has been going on for 6 years because you have to count the year we tore it all out and it sat for 6 months with no tub. Which, actually did not matter anyway since when this tub was finally installed in August of 2010 it still could not be used.
Yesterday, almost 5 years since getting that tub in place, I started tiling. Tiling is art, and it takes a lot of physical labor along with it in order to produce stunning results. Results like our first bathroom remodel, which only took 4 years.
It seems like not a lot was accomplished yesterday, although it took two weekends of prep work to get those 5 rows of tile finished. I’m not certain if I can stand up to another 5 rows today, but I am hoping for a post-ibuprofen miracle and a burst of enthusiasm for making art through hard labor.
Update after day 2: How’s this for one wall of artwork? Rand gets to take credit for the idea of the design to spice it up a bit. We used crown molding on our shower, but planned to stay with plain bullnose in the hall bath. Can’t wait to finish this up now that I have finally gotten started!
