I last left off talking about gutting our bathroom, having new walls built, with rough plumbing and rough electrical, new door frames and window boxes, and the promise of progress. I am happy to say that, eight weeks after the initial gutting, we have a shower again!!!!! Not one of those exclamation points is excessive. Two months with no shower is too long!

There’s nothing like a good old renovation to get you feeling frantic about your home. I posted earlier this spring about preparing for our bathroom renovation, and it’s well-well-well underway!
I posted last week about the small modifications we’ve made to our bathroom over the last several years to help us get by until we were ready to totally renovate this room – and I couldn’t be happier that the time is finally here!
As you can see, I am feeling drawn to whites, grays, and blues – light, airy spaces! It feels nice and clean, which is always a good feeling in a bathroom.
We are on our third year of renovating our 1940s New England Colonial fixer-upper and have learned quite a bit along the way.
Once upon a time, people loved knotty wood wall paneling, drop ceilings and linoleum floors. And strange uncomfortable built-in benches.
I must say, this wood paneling was in GREAT shape and really quality stuff. Part of me hated taking it down, but Moose convinced me *and he was right, per usual* that we needed to re-insulate this room.
