There's A Lazy Boy in My Bathroom

This remodel has finally invaded the whole house.
We had to empty the new bedroom to stain and poly the floors.

It has officially gotten crazy here.
There is a lazy boy in my bathroom.

I kid you not.

And a shop vac in my bathtub.

All so we could finish the floors.

New entrance through Mr. M.'s closet and new hallway.

We put a new entrance through Mr. M.'s closet, now his clothes are in our bedroom, the hallway, the bathroom and my daughter's room.

We, meaning I, decided to change the color of the stain for our new bedroom.
I freaked out on poor Mr. M.
I think I might have even screamed.


Thank goodness we were only in my closet and we had only just started putting the stain on.
I don't like it!

Far doors are entrance to his and her closets.

Mr. M. gave me a look of what now.

I went and got the original stain we have in the rest of the house and put some down next to the new stain. 
Mmmm, not so different.
Of course the lighting wasn't helping.
We have not put up any lights yet and we were working with one of those blinding spot lights.  
And it was 7:00 at night, with no natural light.

I kept pacing back and forth, saying it looks purple. 
What do you think?  I asked him a million times.
Then he wiped off more stain.
Well, maybe not so purple now.
I asked again, "do you like it?"
"Can't see it from my closet." He says.

We did the whole closet and let it sit overnight.

Then we did his closet.
I asked him a few hundred more times if he liked it.
Mr. M. responded with, "what am I supposed to say, no.  I'm not changing it now."
Just great.

We did the whole room.

No purple.
Just how I wanted it.
I love it.

We are putting a second coat of poly on tonight.
Next week the work goes into over drive.

Install chandeliers.
Final coat of paint on walls.
Start putting up window, ceiling and door trim.
Install dryer and washer in laundry room.
Install closet systems.
The list goes on...........

We are hoping to be in the room and have my youngest son's room almost complete by Christmas.

It is amazing how far we have come in only a few months since we started putting up the drywall in July.

After these rooms are done Mr. M. says he is sitting his butt down and relaxing until spring. 

Then we have the monster garage to finish.

Our little guy is turning 7 this week so we are going to take a break from working and celebrate.
Cake and family.

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful week.
