How do you like the addition to my landscaping? Let me introduce you to Johnny. Johnny has been a fixture in my yard now for the last week. He sits under the shade of the oak tree. He's here all the time ready to do his job. Unlike others, I won't mention names. He's a lovely shade of blue-green. He's conveniently located next to the hammock in case you are exhausted and need a siesta.
Starting this little bathroom project, what we thought would be little, was a major milestone for me. I have issues with commitment. I'll admit it. I have a hard time with decision. I've gotten better. Really. But when it goes to big ticket items like hiring someone to rip up your house, I'm back to having issues. So, this may or may not fit in with Funky Junk's idea of Gitter Done. Even though it's not officially done, it is started and for me that was a major Gitter Done moment. We needed the half bath and I was just going to have to suck it up and go for it. Isn't that your motto Donna? No? I think it should be.
This is what the back yard is like. A long and winding ditch. It starts at the back wall by the pool. The other side of that will be the bath. Dirt and white dog don't go well together.
It runs past all the camellias and towards Johnny. Then rounds the corner of the garage. I'm making the pictures extra large so you can experience the enormity of the mess along with me. What's that mess behind Johnny you say? Well, that will be an extension of the driveway. New home for my husband's second wife, the boat.
They had to jack hammer a strip of the driveway out and then continue the trench through the flower bed, or what used to be the flower bed, all the way to the street. I'll spare you with more pictures of trenches and pipes but trust me when I say it goes on and on. The driveway is not short.
Where there once was a closet filled with .....stuff.....
There is now this..... While you're looking at my lovely laundry room. Look down at the floor. I'm trying to find more of that tile. I haven't yet. But I'd like some ideas and opinions on either using the same tiles, which are large almost 18x18 or going with something else. I think they are called Azteca Vecchio Tesoro. I got that off the box but there were only a couple in there. It's also in my kitchen which the laundry is connected to. I'm not sure how I feel about switching to something different or how it would look. How to transition it?
There will be a pocket door there, not a swing door. Which I need to pick out. I'm thinking a two panel. I'd like to switch out other door eventually and they will be easier to paint. Thanks for coming by and looking at my mess. Let me know your thoughts, I'd love to hear them.
