WARNING: there are no pretty pictures in this post.
I've been gradually collecting porcelain and decorative tiles for quite some time with the intention of re-tiling the shower off the kitchen. Having obtained the sum amount required for the project, I asked Michael to remove the old tiles. Well, because ours is an older home, there is no home improvement endeavor that does not beget several more.
Here's dearest standing in a hole where the shower used to be. He's non too pleased about my renovation ambitions and even less thrilled about being photographed in the trenches:
Turns out the walls and floors are significantly rotted and mildewed and plumbing must be replaced. Now we're into major renovation. Me, whining: "...I just wanted to re-tile the shower..."
The pile of debris is our driveway is extremely unpleasant and growing. Is there an abstract/cubist painting here?
Of course, this affects studio time as the bathroom is just on the other side of one wall. I found out that it's difficult to paint on a canvas vibrating from sawzalls and sledgehammers.
