I finish first two coats, and it already looks great. But the tub definitely needs a third coat. Dry time between coats 1 and 2 is an hour. Directions say wait 24 hours before the next coat. Why- thatís dumb because itís already dry. So I mix a whole new can and start on coat 3- I think I ruined it 😭 the can apparently only lasts 6 hours- so now I think Iím gonna have to buy a whole new kit for the next coat.

Goodness that tile is so shiny! It looks very nice!
Sorry, but I can't keep wondering why the toilet paper roll and holder is so far away from the toilet?!

Baha Lazylake!

Itís because I was obsessed with turning this dresser into a vanity. I loved the look of it, and knew it would be a tight fit. Then when the baseboards went in, I lost some more minor space.... so thereís really just not space. So basically, it boils down to poor planning 😂 didnít even think about toilet paper until after everything was done... and itís not my bathroom lol.

Could you put it on the side of the vanity? Also, I LOVE that!

It would be digging in your side if itís on the side of the vanity- itís that close 😂

You are so brave to do that. Did you do the vanity by yourself or did you need a plumbers help? Love it.

with people who can DIY. I cannot.

Meanwhile, my bathroom remodel has officially entered its fourth month. And I am completely at the mercy of the idiot contractor I hired, who claims it is "70% done." Even worse, I hear the same stories about contractors from so many people.
