Making progress...

Last weekend, we installed the vanity, mirror, toilet and all the baseboards

We also installed the new cabinets in the laundry room and had our new washer and dryer delivered. I absolutely LOVE the new washer and dryer and Matt is fascinated with the spin cycle on the washer and how fast the clothes get dry in the dryer.

On to the next project

The toilet in our laundry room bath was not working, so a couple of Saturdays ago, I talked Matt into ripping out the bathroom and replacing it all at the same time.
Bathroom before (above) and bathroom in progress (below)
And since we were at it, we decided to do the laundry room at the same time
Before and in progress This past week my brother, Brad , helped us lay this travertine floor and I am way happy with the way it turned out. We just need to grout and seal it and that portion will be done. Then on to the painting, installing baseboards, hanging doors, installing the toilet, etc, etc....


Well almost. As my sister says, it's been all but finished now for a couple weeks and I've been working on it, the problem is that I keep deciding to do more. But now I really think it's almost completely done. I just need to paint around the light fixture since we got a new one and do a little touchups in a couple of places on the wall.
The new light fixture (give me a break, it's hard to take a picture of a light)

New towel bars, with matching toilet paper holder

Freshly painted countertop and vanity, complete with new knobs
