We can do it ourself - Remodeling

Well, there are a handful of projects that we wanted to do around the house and my dad was anxious to come on up and help. So, Wayne asked 3 days off and away to work we went. We made a full page list of all the projects we wanted to accomplish…or at least attempt to accomplish.
The big ones were:
1. Put up pebble board in the upstairs bathroom
2. Build a cabinet for the upstairs bathroom
3. Take down the dropped ceiling
4. Paint Sydney’s room
5. Paint Elijah’s room
I posted this one ‘last’ so that you will read it ‘first’ on the blog. The posts below detail each project.
We really had no idea how to do a lot of the projects we set out to do. However, we felt confident that we would be able to power through the various tasks. I mean, how hard could it be? I’ve watched HGTV…I’ve seen remodel work…we can figure it out.
You’ll see how it went in the following posts.
(sydney decided to 'help' - she found a screwdriver and started trying to 'fix' the baby gate)
Elijah did such a great job...he spent most of the time hanging out in his little excersaucer.
