It’s December 1st. It hardly appears attainable, however right here we’re. On this last month of the yr, I wish to do my perfect to complete the yr with a robust push in the direction of getting the house gymnasium completed.
Now for those who’re questioning, “Wait. What concerning the rest room?” don’t fear. I’ll be exhibiting you the completed rest room simply as quickly as I can. I nonetheless have to do some paint touchups, hem the bathe curtains, and put the privateness movie on the lavatory door. After which there’s this…
That will be Matt’s vainness mirror, which is now damaged in to 6 items. Ugh!! Thank goodness it’s mounted on a thick cardboard backing, or it will be in much more items all around the ground.
I used to be attempting to take the mirror out of the body in order that I may paint the body, and though I attempted my finest to be as cautious as attainable, it had been put into the body utilizing a lot caulk that it simply snapped like a twig. In hindsight, I want I had simply taped off the mirror to color the body, however after my mirror got here out of its body fairly simply, I figured his would, too.
So now I’ve to take this to the native glass store and get this mirror recut, and with its customized form, I’m positive that gained’t be a one-day turnaround. So it’s wanting prefer it’ll must be subsequent week earlier than I can get the mirror, take all the photos, edit the images, and share the entire earlier than and after (and in between) rest room with y’all.
Anyway, there’s no use crying about it. Stuff like that’s sure to occur each once-in-a-while, so it’s not an enormous deal. Within the meantime, I plan to complete up these final two or three remaining gadgets, after which flip my consideration to the house gymnasium.
Our poor dwelling gymnasium. 😀 For months and months now, it has been used as a storage room for all the rest room supplies and as a workshop the place I exploit my miter noticed to chop the whole lot and construct the vanities and storage cupboard. So now it’s time to get all of that cleared out and picked up, as a result of as of this second, it seems to be just like the aftermath of a storm.
So right here’s what I nonetheless have to get carried out within the dwelling gymnasium earlier than I can name this room completed:
- Clear out the room.
- End the trim alongside the ceiling (the small trim that I opted for as a substitute of crown molding).
- End the door and window trim (nonetheless must be sanded, caulked, and painted).
- End putting in hardwood flooring within the closet space.
- Vacuum your complete room, ground to ceiling, to get all the sawdust off of the whole lot.
- Paint touchups on the wall.
- Paint the door.
- Set up the froth gymnasium flooring.
- Construct the Swedish ladder (which is able to go towards the wall the place the extensive teal stripe is between the 2 home windows).
- Purchase or construct a storage cupboard for the closet (will probably be used for Matt’s gaming space).
- Purchase a TV and cling it on the wall within the closet.
- Add cabinets to the closet space.
- Set up the ceiling fan.
- Set up recessed lighting within the closet space.
- Dangle curtains (I made a decision to go forward with the sheer curtains that I bought for this room).
- Dangle the mirrors on the wall.
- Transfer in the remainder of the gymnasium tools.
I don’t have any expectation that I’m going to complete each single factor earlier than the tip of the yr, particularly contemplating that I normally take off the week between Christmas and New 12 months (that’s after I get all of my tacky Christmas rom-com watching carried out 😀 ).
However I’d like to make an actual concerted effort to get as a lot carried out as attainable over the following three weeks, and cross off as a lot of these gadgets from the listing as attainable in order that I can begin the brand new yr off with a room that’s simple to complete.
After which I can get on with the room that many people are anxious for me to complete — my studio.
So there’s nonetheless fairly a bit to be carried out in on this rooml, however I’m positively on the downhill slide in the direction of the end line. All the actually difficult issues — these striped partitions, putting in the window trim, and so on. — are carried out. Of all of the mission left to do, essentially the most tough one will probably be constructing the Swedish ladder, however I’ve gone over these constructing plans so many occasions in my head that I don’t anticipate that mission being an issue.
I feel as soon as I get this room cleaned out, that may encourage me to get busy in right here and get all of those remaining initiatives completed. How good will probably be to have a completed, usable grasp rest room AND a completed, usable dwelling gymnasium!
