Beautiful Bath Bottom

Oh no, Melinda!          What’s bugging ya now??         Are you really gonna talk about your bottom??           NO!!      Silly, I’m talking about the bottom of the BATH!        Ya know, the floor??

AS a reminder, as if you need it, I’m sure many of you germophobes (Kristen) are still retching from seeing it the first time.        My carpeted bath floor.

slob, humor, bath carpet      OH!    And I didn’t even show you the WORST part!!

There’s worst???        Noooo!!!         (People fainting, as they clutch their heads, moaning.)

slob, humor, petrified poop




That, ladies, and gents is petrified poop.      In my bath vent.         The legacy of the lady(?)  with 3 cats, who evidently didn’t know their litter box, from a hole in the ground.

Thank you, Jim, for shoveling that up for me!!!

Yes, I closed the vent when I moved in, and pretended it no longer existed.      But it’s hard to ignore when you see it every time you sit down!!        He only left it there a day or two.        Maybe to make sure I realized what a great debt of gratitude I owed him???

Anyway, y’all can all open your eyes now, it’s gone.

The materials piled up, ready to go.     slob, humor, new bath materials

{Can’t WAIT to show you the sink!!       But that’s another day.      It’s on the floor now, but it doesn’t belong there!}

Here’s how it looked after he ripped up the carpet.

slob, humor, stripped floor  Those strips of double backed tape ain’t no joke!!       After 50 years, they were still so sticky, I got stuck to the floor!!       And I had gone in barefoot, not even giving it a thought!        Come to think about it, maybe it was good that I went in barefoot, otherwise, he might have had to tile over a pair of shoes!!       Seriously, it took pulling with all my body weight, to pick up my feet!    Then, I had to walk to the sink, and reverse the process all the way back to the door!       So now I have literally invested skin in the game!  lol

Thankfully, that stage only lasted overnight.  WHEW!

slob, humor, backer board stage    The backer board stage.

Oh, just in case you were wondering, SF let me stay at his house that whole week.     He was the only one who had 2 bedrooms, with an actual bed in it!       Thanks, SF!!         I can’t live without a potty!!

slob, humor, self explanatoryThen of course, the project had gotten more involved, since there was no shut off valve for the toilet, so the whole house had to be shut down for the whole week.      Thankfully, he knew how to do that too!!

slob, humor, almost there!    Almost there!!

slob, humor, grouted       The grouting stage.

The toilet I had had sitting in the workshop for a year!!        Now, finally I was gonna have a taller potty!!   YAH!!

He decided to also add a tile baseboard.     Looks wonderful!!

slob, humor, beautiful new floor!

I can’t thank you enough Jim!!

(Now the cabinet looks so bad, it needs to go too!!     Plus, it’s so low, I almost have to bend in half to reach the sink!!      Who did they build this for?      A Little Person??)

It only makes sense, if I get a new floor, and sink, that I get a new vanity too, right??       And about that ugly tub…..      Please, a new shower curtain too, that’s NOT blue??

  1. I am still wondering how the cat poo got there and how it was covered up to be discovered by SF. I am so glad you have all these friends and family in your life to take you over the hard parts. I am a tall person too. I have problem getting clothes my size as I am big sideways too. And I can so identify with low cupboards- who are they built for- happens in my kitchen cupboards all the time.
