Last summer we bought a 1994 Ford Econoline conversion van camper. We had outgrown our charming but cramped and delicate vintage travel trailer, and wanted to take our rv living onto the fastlane (ie. highway) with a conversion van that could go the distance from the midwest to visit family in Florida… and we wanted to take our dog.
All in all, my hubby did a wonderful job laying tile, hanging bead board and installing trim. It’s because he really, really loves me and it was that love that drove him to finish. LOVE is a powerful thing! It had nothing to do with me nagging him. I don’t nag! In as little as one day, at about half the price! Without the mess, stress & outrageous cost of traditional bathroom remodeling!
Here’s a photo of swatches showing the colors of the elements I HAVE to work with (interior dash & rug colors) and the paint colors I’ve chosen to lighten the mood a bit. Thanks very much for your comment. It was quite a challenge for me coming up with this hub for this week’s WTI, so I’m really glad it’s useful for you! Thanks for your comment. Labor hours include time for basic job planning, setup and site preparation, material handling, fabrication of installed materials, installation and cleanup.
But if you don’t have a kitchen island just yet, don’t feel left out. Hanging pendant lighting is versatile enough to enhance any part of your kitchen. Of course, care is always warranted as with tile or wood or almost any floor finish. I have seen cans dropped and the linoleum torn. The denting of the wood floor from such as drop of a can be refurbish with sanding. Water dishes for animals will need a different home but other than that your wood flooring is a great option for the kitchen.
Patty – I am enjoying. Really, really enjoying. Then again, now my excuse to get to the gym all the time is gone 😉 They had awesome showers there. The two big exterior jobs we hired out. We got lots of recommendations and then had our driveway and walkway redone with brick pavers. The front step was unnecessary and removed completely, not to mention that the pavers raised the level of the walkway, so they went right up beneath the door.
