I have a new bathroom, y’all!

Master Bathroom: Deadline April 19

You may have noticed I’m in the middle of a bathroom remodel. Well, “middle” in the sense that it’s ongoing, but not quite “middle” as in we’re halfway done… unless it being fully demolished counts as halfway, since now we just have to put it all back together. 😉 I mentioned my remodeling anxiety earlier […]
