Bathroom Saga - Part 1 of an unknown quantity
Yep. You read that right. It's a saga. I never knew this bathroom project I had planned would turn into this. Let me give you a little background first. I live in a mobile home. My husband and I bought it when we got sick of living in an apartment and couldn't afford a regular mortgage. One of the things I learned the hard way about our home is that having a carpeted bathroom is probably one of the single most stupid things one could do. Therefore, this year when it came time to decide what projects to spend money on, I decided that the carpet in the bathroom had to go. I had put up with it for too long and it was starting to look really nasty.
This is where the saga comes in. Being I am married and co-own this house with my husband, I figured we needed to decide together what we should do. That was probably my first mistake. I kid you not. I think it was like 5-6 trips to Menards/Home Depot later and we still hadn't decided on what to do with the floor. Literally, that was the only thing I wanted done at that point - a new floor - that's it. Every time I would ask my husband what he wanted to do with the floor he would start listing options. I would stop him and remind him that I didn't want the options. I wanted to know what he wanted to do. Then I would get the options again. At one point, while we were standing at Menards - yet again - he came up to me with a marble, yes marble, tile. Very pretty. Very strange to put in a mobile home!
We went home and discussed the project, yet again. I decided at that point I wanted to paint the walls as well. Oh boy did THAT open a can of worms. Now we had to decide what color to paint the walls AND what to do with the floor. I was really in for it at that point. Cue more trips to Menards/Home Depot.
The discussion on what color to paint will be part 2 of the Bathroom Saga.
