Just a couple of hours..........

That is all we thought it would take to put in the new sink in the bathroom. WRONG! Turns out that "standard" size 30 years ago is not the same as standard size in 2006. The sink was too small. We looked at getting a new vanity then realized that would mean the floor would be too short and on and on and on....................
So, DH undertook the massive task of putting new laminate over the old ugly yellow stuff and then putting back on the existing vanity and the sink we had (which was a fine almond color) back in. He did a great job, but it consumed the entire weekend and was super stressful. Starting to look pretty good in there. Now it is my turn to get busy with all the painting.

I can relate! My bathroom project - which started 8/21 and was only supposed to take 2 days - was finally completed yesterday when the plumber came and attached all the new hardware. What a pain! But it looks really nice now. :-)

Ouch! Interesting how all the small projects turn in to big ones. I'm terrified to start moving kids furniture around ;)
