Girls' bathroom paint. Again.

I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to find the tile for the girls' shower. Of course, when I did find the tile I wanted, the paint didn't match. Well, we re painted yesterday to a denim blue color that works well with the tiles and I think it compliments the grays in the granite better, also.

Piano moved!

I think the Browns may regret stopping by today. Tom wrangled them into moving the piano from the mobile to the real house. 

Here's Mike, Matt, Scott & Hailey holding the piano while Amanda blows the dust out with the air compressor. 

The hardest part was maneuvering it out of the mobile. Love the French doors into the real house!

And the first song played was 'Tears of the East' by Phillip Westley performed by Amanda.

Living room carpet

The carpet is in the living room. I repeat. The carpet is in the living room. Thanksgiving can proceed as planned.

New beds...

...'Some assembly required.'

The girls got new beds. With drawers. Tom is gone for the weekend and I will be leaving tomorrow for a few days so I thought I'd get some stuff done today. Of the long list of 'to-do's', we accomplished... One. The beds.
Amanda and I started it off. She was feeling confident until I told her the instructions were upside down.

But hey, we're girls! We can do this!
It took us several hours but we got it done!

Hailey opened the boxes and threw out the cardboard while Amanda and I assembled hers.

She enlisted the help of her friend, Maya. Here they are putting the last screws in:

Oh, and did I mention that TOM took the cordless screwdriver with him so we did it all by hand.  Looks like that list of things I need Tom for is getting shorter...

Prep work

The girls' bathroom is prepped for re painting to a blue/gray that goes better with the tile for the tub. Or for easy cleanup of the perfect crime. I'm adaptable. Has anyone heard from Tom lately?

Electrical Final Inspection...

Prepping a tub surround for tile

So I've watched a couple YouTube videos and I'm ready to tile the girls' shower now! :) well, almost...
I have put the mesh tape on all the joints and corners and will paint the waterproof membrane on tomorrow. Then to measure and mark the level lines and figure out where to start. :)
