Well Lil’ Iron wanted  a bathroom redo for Christmas.  I did not think it was much of a gift but as you guys know…….if the wife ain’t happy there is a good chance that…..oh well, you know the rest. 

The one thing I’m not is a carpenter but I wanted to undertake the task.  I mean, how hard can it be?

Is it perfect?  Heck no!  But as you can see it is a thousand times better and prettier than before. 

Lil’ Iron always knows the best presents.
