On April 21, 2009, I painted the inside of the medicine cabinet for our master bathroom. I did it on the balcony which you can see is being used as a construction site for the time being.
When the bathroom kind of got to a point where I wasn’t of much help, I decided to start a new project that was very much needed. A closet in the “Office”. Yep, I was going to build a closet All By Myself! Kyle was pretty much doing the shower all by himself, so I wanted to do something impressive as well. We didn’t really take very good pictures of this process because there was so much junk in the room that you couldn’t stand far enough away to get a good shot.
Now we’re back to Kyle’s progress on the shower. He’s putting up cement board (which is what you’re supposed to put behind tiles (instead of drywall). We got the cheap kind which is called “Wonderboard”.
Here’s the floor of the master bathroom with cement board down. You can also see that Kyle put the shower liner in, which you also have to put in a shower before you put mortar and tiles down. You can also see on the far upper left of the photo where Kyle finally put some support studs where he had to remove them before to make room for the pipes.
I wasn’t smart because I used flat paint, which isn’t good for moisture (shower steam, for instance). So before we put the house on the market, I ended up painting another coat with glossier white paint (satin to be exact).
So that’s what we did on April 21, 2009! Progress on the bathroom, and the start of the much needed office closet (for all our junk!).
