Some More Before and After

Just because I couldn't be more proud...


As you'll see, we weren't spending much time lounging around eating ice cream.


I'm not your average wife. I have my own mini-size work gloves. I get dirty. I hereby dub myself the Demolition Queen. Where's my fucking tiara?!


One year later. Astounding, eh? Considering that the task was completed on evenings and weekends.


What's with me and the shitty picture taking? I'm definitely more of a fixer-upper than a photographer. But you get the idea.

Anduin said...

Great job Zube.

My wife sometimes tries to get me to do stuff like this so I talk her out of it.

Kuddos to you guys! DH and I are fixing to finish our main bathroom, it's been partially strip now for over a year and a household of five has been using the master bath...you've given me inspiration to get my ass in gear and finish!!!!

Zube Girl said...

Shrinking Wop- Absolutely! I've never been to California, so it sounds like a perfect opportunity!

Cassiopeia- That's right!

Suzi- Thanks!

Storm- Aren't those orbs crazy?!

Chickie- The frame was a wedding gift. I love it!

Kjersten- Thank you!

Anduin Andorian- I wouldn't be jealous. It was damn hard work! But thank you for the compliment.

Old Guy- Wives can be like that, can't they!

Phil- I'm sure I could squeeze it in my busy schedule!

TXSM- Glad I could help! It seems like our remodel is just taking fuckingforever!

Muse said...

amazing! I love doing stuff like that myself, i've laid tile which was no biggie but also an entire wood floor in a living room. real wood - not the lock in kind, so there were saws, buckets of glue and lots of crying. It was worth it

my belle said...

wow tree!!! your room looks beautiful!! I can't believe everyone on here saw it before your own sister! i'm jokin. I can't wait to see it in person!!

Zube Girl said...

Muse- Thank you!

My Belle- For real, you need to get your ass out here sister. :-)

PaintingChef said...

FABULOUS! Hmmm...maybe I should go and look for pictures of the gold lame (luh-may, not lame...although it was that as well) wallpaper we used to have all over our house...

Jess said...

Im very impressed, need you to come help me .. Martha Stewart I am NOT...
For real though , it is very nice looking and your right to be proud.

Zube Girl said...

PaintingChef- I'd love to see that!

Jess- Thanks!

mothergoosemouse said...

I am so impressed! Isn't it great to renovate and then ENJOY it, versus selling the place immediately thereafter?

Zube Girl said...

Mother Goosemous- Zube Boy was talking about buying another house to move into and remodel, and renting this one out right away after the remodel, and I cried enough that I think we're going to take it a little slower than that.
