I've really been wanting to complete at least one room. So I set my sights on my bathroom. I think it's going to be my favorite room in our home. The husband went to work on refinishing the old claw foot tub. (i don't have a before pic) It turned out beautiful! Nice work babe.
Well, as the story goes... we had a little set back. Brett decided he was going to surprise me one evening by getting the tub inside and set. I was gone with little miss, so the boys went to work. They managed to get the tub inside without any problems. I have no idea how Brett manages to move such big heavy pieces by himself but he does. All was going well until the end when B-boy knocked this purple glue/sealing agent out of Brett's hand.
The good news is that it did not get on the beautifully refinished tub. The bad news is it got on everything else and that stuff STAINS. There is no chemical to remove this bad boy! All Brett could do at that point was open all the windows to air out the home and wait for me to get home as they both had a good coat of this stuff on them as well. So, Brett pulled off surprising me! I took my little boy to my moms and soaked him in a tub. It took a few days for the purple to wear off his skin. Brett cleaned up as best he could. Then we took the next couple days to try to get the bathroom cleaned up. Brett didn't want to pull out the floor boards so he decided to scrape it all up with his chisel. Then he stained and finished that part of the floor again. I used a couple coats of stain blocking primer and then four coats of paint on the walls and trim. I think we covered it up pretty well.
Well, perhaps one of these days I will get to complete a room. If you knew my husband as a boy and all that he put his parents through I think you would say the same thing my mom did: "Honey, I think Brett has it coming to him." These boys are sure sweet but they are a handful to deal with on a daily basis:) Lord, please help me!
