About Me

Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Renos - Day 4

Click photos to enlarge and see details.

The bathroom floor is finished! Yay! But we have to wait until about the middle of next week to get everything else finished because the window won't arrive until then. While one worker did the grouting in the bathroom floor, the other one put up the backsplash tile in my kitchen. Looks so much better already!


Have you ever noticed that when one job is almost finished you realize that another job needs doing? Looking at the bathroom walls makes me see that they need to be painted and, if we're going to do that, we might as well do the bedroom as well. They have to match or at least coordinate, after all - don't they? So now I'll be looking at paint swatches and trying to decide on new decor. Hmm...what colour scheme???
Also, now I'm thinking I need a new kitchen counter top, but there's nothing at all wrong with the one I have - except the colour is wrong. Maybe I can get that special melamine paint and just simply paint it. It'd sure be a lot cheaper than having a new countertop installed!

Guess where I'm going to be tomorrow? Yep - at Benjamin Moore's.

Oh......... that is looking good!
I have used the melamine paint but make sure you rub it down first with fine sandpaper to give the paint a grip!

It all looks good to me!

I really like that bathroom tile! Is it smooth? It looks like the tile my sister has and I love hers. And you'll really enjoy the backspash! It just wipes off!

Your bathroom looks great. My husband is a contractor who schedules one week for a bathroom. Somehow the homeowners always find extra stuff that they want done and it throws off his schedule for the next waiting client. A little frustrating for him sometimes since he has to explain to the waiting client. Of course they end up doing the same thing...ciao
