Well, Folks, a project that Stan and I predicted would last 2 or 3 days, ended up taking more than a week to get it completed. We put the final touch on the bathroom with the exception of some tile work that needs to be done on one side of the soaking tub, yesterday. Everything else is done! I don't know how this family of four managed to get by on just one bathroom for that time but we did it anyway. The finished project? It looks BEAUTIFUL!!! As always, Danley did a great job! The floor is once again sturdy and looks better than ever with the Allure laid on top of it.
This was our first time to use Allure but we would definitely do it again! This product is very thick and easy to work with. Given the fact that it comes with a 30-year-warranty, we feel like we could not have done anything any better. If you are interested in reading up and looking at pictures of the many designs and colors of Allure out there, please go to www.allure.com . You can also check it out at www.homedepot.com under FLOORING. It is recommended everywhere in your home or office where water may come into contact with it. Before we purchased it, the salesman told us that it is even durable in bathrooms and kitchens. He also told us that some people are purchasing it to lay on their countertops!
So what is next, you ask? The next project is the master bathroom. Right now, the same bathtub is in place there that came with the house back in 1978. Needless to say, it has definitely seen it's better days. For the past couple of years we have been discussing that we need to put it out of it's misery. On Saturday, we took in the Flea Market at Colorado Springs. A gentleman there was trying to sell some ceramic tile that he had purchased for a large project at his house. Before he got it done, he and his wife decided to move to the northeastern part of the United States. Now, he just wanted to sell the materials that he had purchased. He offered the many boxes of tile and bullnose pieces to us for a whopping $20.00!!! That was too good of a deal to pass up! The tiles are bisque and beige in color. They'll be perfect for building a whole new shower for the bathroom! Even after what we use on the project, there will still be extra tiles.
Anyway, that is our next project that I'll be telling you about sometime fairly soon.
