the bathroom project (days 1 & 2; June 1-2)

2011.06.03

Day 1

Okay, so job 1 was removing the two cabinets above the washer and dryer. Remove the screws joining the stiles. Remove the screws holding the first cabinet to the wall. Keep the cabinet from falling on the dryer. Simple, huh? Should be.

Removed all the screws, but it wouldn’t come loose. Stuck to the wall with some sort of glue and a dozen coats of paint. Tried to pull it off the wall and it started coming apart in my hands. I knew they were crap, but I didn’t know how bad. Some kind of pressboard. Halfway between particle board and cardboard. Staples. Crap.

So after a hour or so, I got them down. Oh, and by the way, they didn’t have backs. The shiny white surface I’d assumed was the back of the cabinet was actually the painted wall. Did I mention crap?

Medicine cabinet, complete with glued-on glass beady things, came down much more easily.

Day 2

Removed caulk. Repaired drywall. Measured. Ripped Filler. Attached filler on cabinet. Measured again. Primed repaired walls.
