I’d like to make a public service announcement about sanding ceiling drywall without wearing safety glasses…
Also, the t-shirt-as-a-dust-mask is not recommended, but it is convenient. I always have a t-shirt on hand, but dammed if I can ever find a dust mask.
I am so OSHA-approved.
Anyway, PPE aside, bathroom drywall is… ongoing/neverending. But remember when I ended up tearing most of a wall out of the bathroom?
And then managed to create the ugliest patch of ceiling drywall ever imagined?
I’ve mostly smoothed that out.
One or two more coats and I should have this wrapped up (thank god.)
And I really should have done more tile board this weekend, but I got distracted… by beer. And also, painting.
Remember the door and drawer-fronts I bought a few months ago for the bathroom vanity? I decided it would be good for my soul to have them painted and ready-to-install. Which means I also masked off the cabinet bases…
And then spray-primed them without proper ventilation. Because beer.
Things are starting to come together.
If you’ll remember, when I first bought the place, it looked like this…
And then I did some minor upgrades that included smashing the original sinks with a hammer… and eventually ended up here.
In retrospect I probably should have scrapped the granite counter, taken out those ridiculous mismatched cabinets, and put in a real vanity. But. That’s not what I did, so we’re going to make this work…
I’ve decided to try and devote just one hour a day to this project for the rest of the month. I tend to think that anything less than a three or four hour block of time is worthless, but even the worst parts of last weekend taught me that I can make some progress with just an hour.
So. An hour a day. That’s doable…
My goal is to finish the vanity and get the bath prepped for tile this weekend (which means more tile board, mudding the seams, and putting a waterproof coating over the entire surround.)
I can handle that in the next five days, right?!
