And Footprints, too!

Six years ago we bought a house.  For six years we dreamed of ripping out this hall bathroom.

I took that picture on a visit before closing.  It still grosses me out.  We hated that tile and vanity so much that we painted it.  We had already gutted the master bathroom and weren't ready to go through that again so soon!

The paint was a great short term solution.  It really brightened the small bathroom.  It just couldn't stand up to the torture of three kids.  It was peeling off the counter and floor.

The bathtub was in pretty good condition, but it had a big chip that was starting to rust.  So it had to go, too.

Last weekend we finally pulled the trigger.  Goodbye ugly vanity!  Goodbye peach and brown tile! 

This is our little helper.  She's wearing googles.  Safety first.

You are probably wondering why the title of this post is Footprints.  Well, to get this...

We had to do lots of this...

Which also left this...

My little Eureka Maxima vacuum has been working overtime.  I can't say enough great things about that vacuum.  It outperformed our shop vac, that's for sure.

Here's another view of our living room during the first day of demo.

We are making major progress and I'll have more updates soon!
