Hi Everyone! What a busy but wonderful weekend! B and I got to spend some quality time, a lot of which was spent chugging away at the bathroom, but it was just wonderful. Today we worked the Nursery at Church, had brunch with some friends at a fabulous BBQ restaurant, and then celebrated the announcement of B's soon to be nephew with his family. What a whirlwind of a weekend!
Here's an update on some of the progress I've made in the bathroom. First on the agenda was cleaning up the woodwork, that didn't need a lot of patching. If you remember from the other day I used TSP, which was a recommendation from the guys at Home Depot. I donned my rubber gloves and tackled the rest of the baseboards, and the door frame. Here are a couple before and afters:
Dirty, dirty wood:
Next on the bathroom list was to caulk some of the seams. Aka spots like this:
The first thing you want to do is twist the end of the gun tight, squeeze the trigger, and apply caulk to your crack. I worked in about 2 feet patches. Once I had applied 2 feet of caulk, I loosened the gun so that none would leak out, used a paper towel to squish the caulk into place, and then went back over with the wet sponge to wipe away the excess. The nice part is that the caulk is easy to clean up with a little soap and water. How easy is that?!
