Two Project Saturday

Last Saturday we took on big two projects.

The first was replacing the window in the shower with glass block. My dad did all of the work on this project, by framing the window and placing the block. He used a kit that did not require mortar, so it was a fairly clean project. Now, it is not necessary to have a shower curtain over the window, so it makes for a more comfortable space.

I also painted the bathroom before the glass block was installed. The color is Quite Moments by Benjamin Moore. The only project left in the bathroom is to re-tile the floor.

Bathroom before and afters:

The second project of the weekend was headed up by my mom. We decided, since it turned out to be a nice day, to clear out the weeds and brush in the backyard. This involved a lot of pulling, cutting, digging, and sweating. We debated on keeping the raspberry bushes that were scattered throughout, but I decided that a manicured swatch of grass would look best.  I will be seeding the area in a couple weeks to hopefully stay dormant till it grows in the spring.
