I Had Work Done in My Downstairs Bathroom

I had a faucet in my downstairs bathroom that had the cold water broken for years. It was just one of those things that you ignore because it is going to mean other repairs. My husband also broke the pedestal on our old sink years ago. This week I finally put my stimulus check to good use. We got a new Kohler comfort height toilet, the new pedestal sink and new faucet. I am so happy, I am literally doing the happy dance. I love this sink, my old pedestal sink had no place to put your toothbrush or hairbrush down or a razor. This one is perfect. I still need to get a new mirror, light and baseboard heat covers but that means getting in an electrician and that is another person I have to find so I am just waiting a bit. But soon. I still have eough left from the money we got to do some other small repairs. I am one happy camper.

That is great you were able to put the stimulus check to good use! I'm sure you're very happy to have that project mostly knocked out of the way.

@BelleStarr Oh yes, it's the little things that often makes us the most giddy! I just cleaned up my back patio and removed a lot of junk that had piled up there over the past year. I feel elated to have my patio back to its former glory! Of course, it's too hot right now to sit outside on the patio, but still, I'm pleased with my accomplishment!

Its looking good. I ordered two toilets from Home Depot- got one the nice, chair height size and the other I goofed on. Its awfully low. Low toilets are hard for folks with bad knees.

@BelleStarr I wish in a big way that we could return our short toilet but hubby has it installed so I will just have to deal with it. Toilets are something that most folks find impolite to talk about but I think you are right, you can love a toilet.

I know I could look it up but what is a stimulus check? Glad you were able to get those improvements done.

The government sent each of us a check for $1200 it was called a stimulus check. Free, no tax and I thought I would use it for something useful.

Yes I figure one thing at a time. The flooring in the family room is probably next.

Yes that ledge is perfect, I don't have enough room for a vanity so this was the perfect solution.

@BelleStarr Yes it sure is, the only reason I never liked pedestal sink was the lack of room

Enjoy the new fixtures in your bathroom. By the time you get the other done the walls will probably be crying for you to give them attention too

I am sure they will, the wallpaper should be removed but it is too big of a job for me to tackle right now.

That's wonderful. I need to get repairs done as well but I'm going to wait a couple years. Once I've paid off the car I'll have a little extra each month for that purpose.
