We're getting close to finally finishing the bathroom friends. Most of the big stuff is out of the way. In my "Part 1" blog post I showed the floor plan and identified the walls that we were planing to move. Last week I shared my custom tile shower and today I'm moving to the other side of the room - the water closet.

Learn how to overcome the daunting task of building waterproofing and installing a custom tile shower yourself DIY shower remodel

So where did we leave off friends? I think the last time I talked to you about Modern Master Bath remodel I was sharing the building plans for my double vanity.  The bathroom remodel is SO close to being done! All that is left is to build the linen closet and touch up paint. The showstopper of the whole makeover is the new custom tile shower we installed and that's what I'm focusing on today.

I have a problem friends. 

My shop (A.K.A. my half of the two car garage), is a disaster. I desperately need more storage and organization. My husband is a maker too (cars, not wood) and we are just running out of room! I've been dying for a mobile workbench that I can assemble my furniture on but I had no idea where I would store it. I started brainstorming and decided I could create a folding or collapsible workbench that could be stashed out of the way when not in use.

Hi friends! Has this year been kicking your butt too? I had the hardest time getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. I'm guessing I'm not alone. It's just so hard to get motivated when it's cold and dark outside. 

To get me by, I've been focusing on smaller, indoor projects. I love smaller builds! Sometimes you don't want to spend days in the garage. It's fun to have something you can bust out in a single afternoon and hang it up right away.

I have been up to my eyeballs in a bathroom remodel friends! Like most big projects, it's taken us much longer than expected. Back in October I shared the before photos and my design inspiration. My husband and I have done all the work ourselves, which means we've had to squeeze work hours into nights and weekends.

I'm usually a HUGE procrastinator, but I' actually planning ahead for once in my life. I just happen to know that my boys will be getting a few small collectibles for Christmas next week. (I have an "in" at the North Pole). Until now, I've been the mean mom and haven't really caved on collectibles like Tsum Tsums and Shopkins. I have a low tolerance for clutter, so the idea of welcoming dozens of little tchotchkes into my house gives me hives.

Christmas is less than a week away. Are you in a total scramble mode yet? I got a late start on my decorations this year. I sweet talked my husband into helping set up the Christmas tree a few days ago, but we didn't have a tree skirt to put on it. If you're a procrastinator like me, no worries! I've got an easy tutorial that will give you something I think is even better than a boring old skirt.
