Painting, RE-painting, and RE-painting yet AGAIN!

I've continued working on my bathroom painting and redecorating, as I didn't 'quite' GET R DONE last Friday. The ceiling needs a touch up yet, and I thought I was finished with the walls and cabinets on Saturday. WRONG!

Mr. Wonderful decided it would be a superb idea to install a new vanity top! He has good taste and enjoys picking out things for our home. He chose a dark brown patterned top which reminds me of granite, and it goes well with the paint, and then he spotted a sink on clearance that he loved - only $30 for that, so, why not?

As he worked on the installation, minor scraping and bumping of the walls resulted in painted surface damage. When it came time to remove the old counter top, it didn't come off as easily as it should have - the former owners put it all together with 3 layers of cheap OSB, and screwed it all in place with huge screws - he found that out when he had to take the Sawsall to it! And, if you aren't watching carefully enough, the Sawsall can take off in another direction and saw through the vanity, too. I learned that when I heard some "not so very nice" words echoing out of the bathroom. Hmmm. More painting and re-painting for me to do in the morning, I figured. It is so true - a womans' work is never done....This project has been no exception!
Monday I spent re-painting parts of the vanity, and then I started on the fun stuff - the hanging of the decorations! Remember I told you about the "hospital theme" I was going for - until Mr. Wonderful informed me that the pan I thought was a metal basin for hospital patients was really a WORM BOX??? Well, the blogging scoffers that picked on me so shamelessly (could it be Penniwig and Lady Jane??) will be eating WORMS soon, as Friday I will be showing off my wall decorations, and everyone will be able to see the unique bathroom concepts I have come up with! Very different indeed! This has been a fun adventure! I will have everything completed (except the flooring) for Friday.

This has been a huge project, and I will be glad to finally GET R DONE!

Oh don't we just love all those extra do overs we usually wind up doing, when DH's decide to
Can't wait to see what you did with the worm box.

I can't wait for Friday to see your finished hospital themed bathroom!

Hope the rest of the project doesn't have anymore surprises for you!

See...that's where the trouble comes in....
you innocently start a little ol' project..then something happens, and it grows into a monster of a project. It never fails!
Cuss words are just part of any project I think...I mean, I've never experienced one any other way, he hee!

My husband is like Tim the Tool Man Taylor - a five minute job ends up a full days work!

Can't wait to see the finished room.
