After the plumber installed it, he was so impressed he took a photo on his iPad!!  It was actually pretty funny listening to him install it. There were some choice words, lots of sighing and a bit of head scratching. But he did it. It’s in, it’s beautiful and by Saturday it will usable. Woo hoo! When my husband saw it his response was “now that’s a bathtub.” Of course he followed that with “I don’t understand why you get so excited about a tub.” My sister made a similar comment. Let’s face it – I love bathing. I love soaking in a tub, so getting this massive beauty is pure joy. I know not everyone cares about tubs but I do – especially a freestanding tub. So beautiful. But enough about that.

I said earlier this week that I would finish up my board and batten this weekend. Well I’m almost there!

Caulking the board and batten (it’s cold in Texas this morning and this was the best outfit I could put together since my closet is still inoperable)

Last night I caulked and sanded the back wall. This morning I caulked the stairwell and once it dries, I will sand and caulk it. And then????? Priming and painting and I WILL BE DONE! Well maybe not completely finished (I still need to add the wainscoting cap) but I can do that next weekend.

After I knock out the board and batten project, I have to get the trim cut and painted for the bathroom and then start putting together the center section of our new closet system (yes, we are taking on building a custom closet unit). Last night I worked on painting the bathroom doors black (I have a small obsession with black doors).

It’s going to be a busy weekend but I’m so close to knocking out a few projects so I’m really excited to get this weekend under way. Hopefully by Sunday I’ll have some “after” pics!

*Sorry for the low quality pics. My camera battery was dead so we had to rely on the iPhone.
