Blogging has really taken a back seat lately. It's not that I don't have anything to blog about it's just that I'm not good a juggling my time. I'm all over the place and I don't take many pictures lately.

My house is turned upside down and there is dust all over the place and things dragging everywhere but I'm happy.

 This is the BEFORE picture of the plywood stairs without a guard rail because when the carpet was removed the iron rail didn't fit anymore and was disposed off and never replaced.  I painted the plywood.

After the steps were ripped off, boards were tacked in place so we could still use the stairs  very carefully.

This is what has been done so far. The guard rails need to be put in place and some finishing touch  here and there to hide the nails under the lower steps. I'll keep you posted  when the jobis done.

This is the picture of the vanity that I promised to show you with the double sinks of different color. The Double sink will be replaced by one sink only and  a few minor changes of knobs and a coat of paint.

Here the counter top of the vanity has been removed and the wall paper also has been removed on top. You can still see some wall paper on the right side.  The flooring has been removed.

Here is the new vanity top. The sink is not in yet.

Some shelves for towels.

The old tub and enclosure was removed but I forgot to take a photo of the new tub so it will have to wait.

The tile floor was put over some newly laid quarter inch plywood for durability.
My remodeling job is very simple  because I learned a long time ago that  renovations are better kept neutral .
I hope that you enjoyed visiting and please leave a comment to let me know that you were here.  Have a safe week.  JB
