Hello Y'all. I am sorry I am so late to the party. I traveled all week for work and then flew on Thursday across the country to visit my sister and nieces and nephews for Easter. I meant to post yesterday (Linda, I suck, I know...I am so sorry) but I was busy with this girl.
So, week three of the challenge has been...challenging. There are many, many things that I am good at when it comes to home improvement. Armed with a good attitude and my Master's Degree from Google University, I can pretty much accomplish anything. Plumbing? Check. Electrical? Done. Tile work? Easy. Mudding sheetrock? Epic fail. Seriously, I suck. Bad.
Before leaving for Easter break, I knew I needed to remove and replace the tile flooring, hang new sheetrock and prep the walls for their moulding treatment and wallpaper. Guess how much got done? Not much.
The cut tiles from where the walls used to be were removed and coordinating craptastic tile was sourced and purchased. For the bargain price of $.98 a square foot. Wonder why it was on closeout? Uh, maybe because it is ugly? Yeah, that's definitely why.
New sheetrock was cut and hung (by yours truly, with many, many, many curse words uttered...just sayin) and I began taping and mudding the seams. I got about 1/25 of the way done and realized that it just isn't my forte. I never could ice a cake very well either. Maybe I should have known. So...I tearily had to call in reinforcements aka Mom and Dad. They came to the rescue and began working on the seams the day before I had to fly out.
So as not to leave you with nothing pretty to look at, I promise some progress has been made. For instance, I have sourced the following. I will leave it up to you to decide where and how I plan to use it all.

Until next week. Hope you have a Happy Easter.
