You would think that after almost 8 years of marriage and almost 14 years together, David would know that I’m always right. One day he will get it (hopefully).
He took out the tiles that had the bad spacing, replaced them with new tiles, and spaced them much better this time around.
Once they were dry, he grouted. It looks so much better, and it was such an easy fix, but such a waste of time to even have to fix something that should have been done right in the first place. Oh well!
In these pictures, you can see the dark spots in the grout. They aren’t dark now that they are dry, but it gives you a good idea where the tiles needed to be replaced.
It’s such a relief to have this done- after all, its only been 5 months since I mentioned it needed to be fixed.
It seems like ages ago that I gave a laundry room update. I think the last time david worked on the laundry room might have been in December. Yikes! Sounds about right though. Anyway, back in December I shared the spacing issues that we were having with the floor.
I warned David that I thought it looked off, but he insisted that it would be fine once the grout was in. Well, he was wrong, and it took one of his coworkers to notice the spacing in the picture to get David to agree with me.
We need our final bedroom upstairs cleared out so that we can start Dax’s big boy room. That means the laundry room has to be completed since the majority of the crap in the bedroom belongs in the laundry room.
David took apart the tiles that had funky spacing last weekend promising that he would be able to fix it. Fingers crossed!
I never thought I would be writing this, but our mudroom is complete. I repeat, the mudroom is complete. I gave David a strict deadline, and he got it done. Ok, two days later than the deadline, but baby steps right? It looks beautiful and I love it, but I do think it would have been worth a few thousand dollars to have hired it out so that it would have been done months ago. Oh well.
He basically built everything from scratch and it’s so nice knowing there is a place for muddy and wet shoes and coats now. I also feel confident that we will have a designated place for keys, especially for David’s since he is always losing his.
The cabinets were a great addition since we have so much random stuff in the garage that would go better in here. The sink will be great to rinse off after playing outside.
Now that the functional stuff is done, we get to decorate! The wall behind the sink needs something, as does the blank wall between the bench and the cabinets. I am thinking a mirror will make the room look bigger, but I have to play with different ideas.
Next up, the planning center! Yep, David had a deadline for that too, and it’s complete as well!
