Homecoming and girls

Amanda went to homecoming with friends this year and they came over to get ready together. So Tom and I went to Lowes and got some mirrors for the master bathroom because three girls getting ready for Homecoming will require mirrors. 
Doing hair:
Doing make-up:
And three beautiful girls ready for the ball:

Then there's the aftermath:

But the mirrors are set and the mess can be cleaned up.

Preparing for carpet...

While 3 shots of Fireball before painting molding *sounds* like a good idea... To quote Fat Amy, "mmmmm... Better not.".
I'm going to bed now... :)

Masonry

Now that I have admitted to my ineptitude at masonry and contacted a referred mason, I feel so much better! Crap. These rocks have been on the living room floor for over 2 months now... It is time for them to be on the fireplace so we can get the carpet installed.


Big Door

So I installed a door yesterday. Yes, we've already installed aost all of our door, but this one is special. It's the fire door to the garage and its HEAVY. 

So on sawhorses and it seems we have a problem...


That tile we installed should have stopped at the drywall not the framing. So, Sandi's idea, scribe the line with a glass cutter then thump it with a chisel (I used a drift) to break it of. Worked well, better than taking the tile up for a re-do.

The door vendor I thought measured the rough opening, but the door was EXACTLY the size of the opening height so would not go in. I have a power plane so used that to take off about 1/8" on top to make it fit. 

Shims to help with squaring and we have a door to stem the cold incursion that has begun with the advent of fall. Now for some paint...

Painter's putty.

Why did I not know of this wonderous creation???
The flippin' molding would have been done and painted this weekend if I had putty instead of the f#^*+#¥'ing caulk! *sigh* back to work now...
