The wood trim has finally been completed in our bathroom project. We are pleased at the way it turned out, from paint colors to flooring choices. Even the 'worm box' fits in with the fishing and camping theme!
Mr. Wonderful has been working on a different project this week - the hearth that will be underneath our corn stove, and the wall behind it. Recall THIS SIGHT from Monday??I just couldn't wait till Wordless Wednesday to post about it! Later, I heard about how he 'jacked up the ceiling and main support beam to adjust the area he wished to put in the vent pipe for the stove - I'm glad I didn't see that! I did see the results, however. He cut the beam in that wall, and inserted a horizontal board and two verticals, to keep the support but allow the vent pipe to go in as he planned. If it was me, I would have sealed up the big hole, and forgot about ever putting in the corn stove! That's the difference between us, I guess!
Pardon the mess, but the house has been a disaster. Perhaps this weekend things will be closer to normal. You can see Mr. Wonderful hard at work, here. He claimed the camera flash scared him - earlier, he 'shorted out' the power, a big snap and a huge spark made us BOTH jump for a second - and the circuit breaker DOES work, thankfully.I hear him cutting the stone now, to work around the elecrical boxes in the wall.....I hoped to get pictures of it this evening, but it will have to wait for next week. Thanks for visiting - and if you wish to join in today, please sign in on Mr. Linky below, and visit any others who have signed in for GET R DONE FRIDAY!

I like the fishing lodge theme and the bathroom worked out well. Your hubby does look hard at work and look at that variety of tools.

The theme of fishing fits the cabin idea perfectly. You guys are so wonederful together. He sure has done a lot of work. Your place will be fantastic when completed.

His butt is cute!

So your next project is organization (lol)?

I love your bath, the wall paint with the wood finish looks great. Can't wait to see the corn burner set up.

I need a lot of remodeling around my house. I just hate going through the messy process. If your Mr. Wonderful holds out, I am sure it will be worth it all. Thanks for visiting my post. Please come again on Tuesday, 9-1.

I love your new bathroom floors! I just love the look that real hardwood floors give to a house. I can't wait to see your finished corn stove.

Get R Done!

Good gravy, your hubby is amazing! I would have no idea what to do...maybe run in a circle, screaming and whining...but he knows what to do and can DO it!

Sure wish projects didn't invade the whole house - but they always seem to!!! Keep working away at yours - you WILL succeed!!! :-}
Your listed on the August list of "Theme day's", which is what I finally got finished and linked up ... ;-}


The bathroom does look beautiful! I bet it was fun to decorate!
Sigh...I was so busy trying to get her done over here/and with problems from our carrier I had no time to get my Friday getrdone in in time! least the bathroom at my place is getting done...AND shares its ouwn story...perhaps titles WHY NOT TO WALLPAPER A SMALL BATHROOM...anyway! Hope the corn stove progress is coming along...and hey...take a break and enjoy a bit of the weekend!
