Bath and Nursery Update - Day 2377897854

I can barely open my eyes today, I’m SO tired from the work we did this weekend. But, it was a very productive one, so I can’t complain. I do miss weekends where you get to actually just relax, and I only vaguely remember what they are like…but soon enough I’ll be relaxing in my tub in our finished bathroom…

Saturday was focused on getting in the new sub floor, which was suppose to be an easy job, but no such luck. Always the way! However, it got done and is nice and solid.


With this out of the way, it was time for tiling to begin! And I’m happy to report that I actually got to participate in this project! I officially love tiling. I can’t wait to tile our kitchen back splash…it’s so much fun! And WAY easier than I thought it would be. We have about half of the shower surround done, and our plans are to finish that and the floor tile this week. If we can manage that….then this weekend we can get the plumbing in place and get things set up!!



My Mom and I also got to tackle those Ikea boxes that have been lining the halls of the Duckworth house for months now. I was pretty nervous about the dresser, it looked like there were enough pieces to build a house…but it was so simple! And tackling that first made the bookcase an absolute breeze.





Amongst all of this, I also managed to get away for a lovely birthday dinner in honour of my Mom at Papagayo....and was pleased to discover they do in fact offer a virgin option of their amazing margaritas!!!

So, here we go with another busy week. Tonight we’re crib shopping and making a stop at Ikea…and the rest of the week will be tiling adventures!


  1. I am so looking forward to BabyWorld and Ikea tonight! Let's hope we find the perfect crib and bassinet AND Matilda curtains.

  2. Everything looks so good, I love the wainscotting and that tile is going to look amazing!

  3. This brings back so many memories for me! My husband tiled our bathtub surround with the exact same tiles while I was pregnant with my daughter!

    Now we're expecting #2 and he's ripped our basement apart!

  4. Ha ha, it must be a baby-on-the-way thing to start overhauling the house!!!
