The Bathroom Project Begins! And Landscaping. :)
While I was out running through clouds of colored powder this weekend, Pete was hard at work in our backyard. He started another landscaping project and this one is going much faster than the last. A few weekends ago, he took out some shrubs in our backyard that were overgrown and ugly. This weekend, he started building a retaining wall around the spot and plans to install some new plants there. We're thinking we'll probably have some form of hibiscus there, for sure. We'll probably also get some lower, leafier plants (I liked the burning bushes we saw at the Home Depot this weekend).
It's not done yet, but here are some pics of the wall. Looking good!
Also, I thought I'd show you the tile we picked up for our bathroom. We're saying that we're not 100% sold on it yet, but I think we kind of are.
This is all very preliminary, though. We still have to contact the tiler and cabinet shop, but I'm getting excited! Oh, and for this project I actually remembered to take some before shots of the bathroom.
See? Not TERRIBLE, but that tile is ooh-glay. And although the shower is old (and dirty! Oops!), it's pretty neutral. The problem, really, is the tub, which is tiny tiny. No way to bathe comfortably in that thing!
So that's what we're working with. Hopefully I'll have updates on this room soon!
