Projects projects..

Today we decided to get cracking on those projects that we have left behind.. ( mainly the bathroom) We started on it and quit. So allan started patching things and mudding things and sanding things and .. well on and on and it's going to have a coat of primer on there before we go to bed tonight. We also picked up some new laminate flooring stuff. We decided to try the peel and stick tiles. I'm not sure if that will be harder or easier than a whole sheet of the stuff. The people in the store swore by 'em so we will see.
So this weekend is the bathroom weekend. We have a major project out in the garage. We have to build a whole wall out there but there is some concrete work that has to be done first. We also have to frame in about 4 walls down in the basement bedrooms too.
I also want to move one cabinet in the kitchen and redo the flooring in there too. Oh and build a fence in the backyard this spring. can you see how this could go on forever? We just want to get it good enough to sell later and not spend a fortune. lol. wish us luck!

make sure you seal those peel and stick tiles. Otherwise they will bubble up if they get moisture under them. They are easy! We used them in our old bath to spruce it up.

what do you seal them with?

There is a tile sealer. We could only find it at home depot when we were looking. It's a little bottle, just like super glue kinda stuff. And you put a bead all along all of the seams so you dont get moisture under them, and ruin all of the hard work. Especially in bathrooms, where there is a lot of moisture. If you dont put that down, you may have problems. It took us awhile to find it, but I'm sure they will know what you are talking about. Like I said, its in a small bottle, just like super glue and you put a bead all along the seams.
