Home perfection, I mean improvement

I got home yesterday to find my downstairs bathroom gutted. I didn't know they would be able to do that in one day. I'm very impressed. Today the framing is supposed to be done and the tub installed, so it's just a matter of choosing tile, which I have a feeling is going to be difficult. I'm already planning to fall in love with all the expensive tile that I can't afford. But maybe I'll find a reasonably-priced tile that I can love.

The painting is also continuing. I got to look at swatches on the walls last night and am liking them, for the most part. I think the peach color for the den and the loft might be too pink for me, so it could be back to the drawing board for that. I realized this morning, when the painters were discussing all the wall repairs they planned to do, that *this* is why having painting done professionally is such a good idea. I seriously would have no patience for all the prep work. I could paint all right (but not the great room, which is why I hired painters in the first place) but the prep work would kill me.

All of this work is so exciting for me! I'll post pix when it's all done.
