UGH! What a hassle! Home repairs always seem to be more work and more expensive than planned, don't they?

How's the project going? I need to do the same thing in the kids bathroom and afraid it will cost me big $$. Yikes - its great you are able to do most of the work yourselves, saving lots of money. Aunt Cheryl
