Dad and Tony came by again last weekend. You may remember that on their last visit, I learned a new vocabulary word. One that I probably could have gone my whole life never knowing and still have been fulfilled.

This time around, the linoleum was out, the floor cleaned up, and we were ready to roll with putting down the hardibacker and picking out a tile layout. We had plenty of hardibacker in the garage thanks to the last time we needed some (and I still have more for the kitchen when it comes time to do that room… someday). To cut a hole for the toilet, we used the old twine and sharpie trick to create a circle.

Then drilled a hole for the jigsaw and cut it out.

A few screws, and the bathroom is about as clear as it will be for a while. After they left, I changed gears and went back to the stairs. If you follow on Instagram, you’ve seen a few sneak peeks of that. More coming tomorrow!

(Oh, and this post is very late today because I already have my first exam, and as most of you know, blogging becomes sparse/unpredictable on exam weeks. Lucky to have a holiday just before it, so I’ll be spending the day with my nose stuck in a book and trying to make sense of financial analysis of the stock market. Really. Wish me luck!)


Want more? I love to post sneak peeks on Facebook and Instagram. You can also find me on Hometalk and Twitter at uglyducklingDIY. Some links may contain affiliates – please see my Disclaimer page for more info.
