It’s December 1st. It hardly appears potential, however right here we’re. On this ultimate month of the 12 months, I need to do my highest to complete the 12 months with a powerful push in direction of getting the house gymnasium completed.
Now in case you’re questioning, “Wait. What in regards to the lavatory?” don’t fear. I’ll be exhibiting you the completed lavatory 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 may 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 flooring.
I used to be making an attempt to take the mirror out of the body in order that I might paint the body, and regardless that I attempted my greatest to be as cautious as potential, 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 certain that received’t be a one-day turnaround. So it’s wanting prefer it’ll need to be subsequent week earlier than I can get the mirror, take all the footage, edit the images, and share the entire earlier than and after (and in between) lavatory 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 lavatory supplies and as a workshop the place I take advantage of my miter noticed to chop all the pieces 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 appears to be like just like the aftermath of a storm.
So right here’s what I nonetheless have to get accomplished 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 all the room, flooring to ceiling, to get all the sawdust off of all the pieces.
- Paint touchups on the wall.
- Paint the door.
- Set up the froth gymnasium flooring.
- Construct the Swedish ladder (which is able to go in opposition to the wall the place the huge 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 hold 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.
- Grasp curtains (I made a decision to go forward with the sheer curtains that I bought for this room).
- Grasp the mirrors on the wall.
- Transfer in the remainder of the gymnasium gear.
I don’t have any expectation that I’m going to complete each single factor earlier than the tip of the 12 months, particularly contemplating that I often take off the week between Christmas and New Yr (that’s after I get all of my tacky Christmas rom-com watching accomplished 😀 ).
However I’d like to make an actual concerted effort to get as a lot accomplished as potential over the subsequent three weeks, and cross off as a lot of these gadgets from the listing as potential in order that I can begin the brand new 12 months 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 accomplished in on this rooml, however I’m undoubtedly on the downhill slide in direction of the end line. The entire actually difficult issues — these striped partitions, putting in the window trim, and so forth. — are accomplished. Of all of the venture left to do, probably the most troublesome 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 venture being an issue.
I believe as soon as I get this room cleaned out, that can encourage me to get busy in right here and get all of those remaining tasks completed. How good it will likely be to have a completed, usable grasp lavatory AND a completed, usable dwelling gymnasium!
