Bathroom Project

This is the master bath that has been redone and I just completed the mirror trim. I bought the trim at Lowe's and it's that plaster type material that I painted black. This type trim is much lighter weight than wood trim. Since my mirror was so long I thought it would work best. We attempted framing the mirror and failed when we used a glue that Lowe's said would work. It did not. So I went to Home Depot and bought Goop Tape and that held the trim up. You should start at the top and put that piece on first. Use your level to make sure that it's straight. You may also have to notch the trim where the mirror clips are on the sides of the mirror. I used a sharp knife to notch my pieces. My mirror was put in when we built our house which was 25 years ago so it needed a "face lift". As you can see in the before pictures it had some places around the edge that were not so attractive. This project was much cheaper than buying a new mirror.

I love Spring Time!

We were on Spring Break this past week and I enjoyed the week. Haley came home since she had Spring Break from U.T. and we had a nice visit. I got several projects finished that needed to be completed. I'll post pictures on the next post. I went to Houston this weekend to visit Dad. He is being moved tomorrow to a rehab facility. The doctors keep saying that it is going to be a long slow recovery. Please continue to pray for his healing.
I will have pictures next post of the Bathroom mirror that I framed with trim from Lowe's. I will explain the products that I used to hang the trim.
I'm tired and have to get up early in the morning for school.
Take Care and God Bless.

Prayers Please

Dad is having surgery on Tuesday. They are going to drain the psuedocyst into his stomach and possibly remove the gallbladder. The doctor explained that sometimes the cyst has to be drained more than once but we are hoping and praying that one time will do it. Please pray for my Dad that the surgery will be successful. He weighs 152 pounds. He used to weigh 174. He has not eaten since Jan. 12 when he had the pancreatic attack. His spirits were good today, I think he is so ready to get well and back on his feet. Thanks for keeping us in your prayers. I will post after Tuesday.
