But before I started cutting out the diamonds, I stitched my name and date on the bottom part of the third tier - the tier with the bee hives.
I spent most of today running around picking out items for our upcoming main bathroom renovation. I picked out, ordered, and paid for:
- floor and wall tile (pick up in a week)
- sliding glass shower doors (2 - 3 weeks)
- whisper quiet ceiling vent fan (2 - 3 weeks)
- vanity top and sink (3 - 4 weeks)
The vanity has been ordered and has been shipped. Not sure when the ETA will be.
I have a good idea of the shower/tub fixture and tub that I want. They're open stock items so can be picked up any time. I need to also decide what towel rods and toilet roll holder, and light fixture that I want.
When I get the floor tile, I'll have to decide what colour grout to pick.
It's exciting to be getting a new bathroom and Skip will be happy to have a bathroom counter 3" higher than the 1983-style one, but I find making all the decisions about fixtures is stressful. Mistakes are very expensive. Fortunately I kept all my notes from the ensuite bathroom renovation 6 years ago so I just ordered the same tile and a fairly good match to the vanity.
Unfortunately, some of the items will take almost 4 weeks to arrive so the demolition won't begin for a couple more weeks. Hopefully everything will be done by the end of August. Fingers are crossed.
Our contractors will get to decide when demolition will start as they will have a pretty good idea of what the timeline for the job will be.
Next renovation? Our kitchen in the fall... $$$$$
