Remodeling - Not For The Faint Of Heart!

TGIF, Shopaholics! Hope you've had a fantastic week and a fun weekend on tap! :-)

Times have been very busy around here...last weekend we had a bunch of company for the Alan Jackson concert. Don't worry, I'll blog about that in the next few days - we had such a great time!

Another thing keeping me and DH very busy is a remodel - actually it's a "gutting" - of both bathrooms here at the beach. Let me tell you - from what I can tell so far, this remodeling business is not for the faint of heart.

So many decisions must be made. Tile colors and materials, tile size, grout color, paint color, light fixtures, granite countertop color, backsplash, mirrors, white or biscuit colored toilets? I mean seriously - does it matter if the toilet is white or biscuit? Apparently yes, it does!

I'm living in a construction zone. I had to close the hotel down, told everyone "no guests" until further notice. At this point, I'm not even sure where my Aveda paddle brush is........and I'll need it approx. 6 hours from right now!

Thought you might enjoy some photos, this is tile that was put down today in the master bathroom. More tile will be installed tomorrow, as well as grouting...

For a good laugh on a Friday, I'm sharing this photo. There was a full mirror installed over the vanity/dressing area, it's been there forever. Today we removed that mirror and found this wallpaper behind it. Hello - 1985 called and they want their wallpaper back! :-)

Now, for the real question - can we get through this without someone being injured? Stay tuned!

Have a Fab Friday! We are finally enjoying cooler temperatures here at the beach and it's nice for a change!


  1. Good luck Sweets! OK, funny story - Yesterday Miller (who is 4) and I were doing a puzzle of the US. I was telling him the name of each state and a little tidbit about each one. We got to Alabama and I told him I had a friend who lives there and her name is Shopaholic! He was confused and then hysterical over your name :) Have a great Friday!

  2. Ahhhhh projects! Alsmost as fun as MOVING!!!

    Are you going to Christmas Jubilee??

  3. Hey, when the hotel is back up and running put me down for the Shrimp Festival. It's going to be great - your style and the hubby's diy muscle - can't lose. Are the new colors pink & lime green by any chance? heehee

  4. Good luck! We are doing the same thing at the Lake House right now. What a headache but I keep telling myself it will be worth it when we finish!! And I LOVE LOVE Alan Jackson. Can't wait to read your post.
