To make matters worse the people who constructed this house probably took one gallon of white paint, watered it down and then sprayed the whole house white, which means the paint is dingy looking. Which brings us back to today. We promised ourselves that the next rainy day we'd start on the painting upstairs. The landing, the 2 sides of the the Jack and Jill bathroom and the third bedroom all need painting. In addition we're ripping the carpet out of the 2 bathrooms and replacing it with tile. Don't contractors know that carpet in the bathroom is a no-no? I can just hear the homebuyers from HGTV saying, "Oh no, I can't buy this house there's carpeting in the bathroom." So the tile has been bought and the carpet is being pulled out. In addition to that we're putting in granite counter tops, feeling cheap though so we're probably going in use granite tile. Though there's a granite place not too far from here that sells slab remnants, don't you just love the idea of buying a leftover yard of granite? So we're going to price granite there too.
