Demolition Woman

This weekend was excellent! A nice mix of productive and relaxing, much better than last weekend and no one was seriously injured! On Friday, Brien's parents took both kiddos so we had our first date night of the new year. Brien had steak on his mind, so we went to Texas Roadhouse for supper. We rented some movies. Current movies, for the first time in a long time. It was nice to feel up to date for once!

The next morning we slept in until nine, NINE O'CLOCK AM! That never happens either! We got a game plan together hit the Starbucks, hit the Lowes and then we started demo on our master bathroom. It was glorious! Here are some hideous befores...

Brien doesn't find tearing things apart nearly as fun as I do! 
There was something very therapeutic about smashing 1980's tiles with a hammer and ripping out skanky, old, moldy shower doors! It was delightful. I told Brien that a career change might be in order. As in, I want to quit teaching and start tearing down ugly things! But apparently there is a lot more to demolition than just destroying things. Back to the drawing board. 

We have decided that we are going to put in a tub, cause there is room and why not?! This made things a titch more tricky as we have to reroute some plumbing and there was some rust and water damage to the subfloor around the toilet. THIS IS WHY YOU NEVER, EVER PUT CARPET IN THE BATHROOM, EVER!!! So it was a little more difficult. Thanks moron previous owners...

So now we have everything out and are ready to start making things pretty! My favorite part!
Down to the studs!
I have some great ideas for freshening up the joint, oh pinterest! This is what I want to see happen...

                   Wide plank tile for bathroom. Great grey color! Great option if you can't do wood throughout.
Half bath
Ooh, i am going to have to add a shelf above mine! Never thought of that!
Tub, glorious tub!
Now, I know we have a lot of work ahead of us, but I can't wait to see how everything turns out! More updates to come!
