I have heard my mother say for years that time goes faster as you get older. She wasn't lying!
The last month has been a whirlwind in a GOOD way!! The dude and I have been doing some remodeling (I was sneaky and redid a bathroom while he was in Europe for work) and then he came home and we pulled the 1970's paneling out of the hallway (we live in the paneling palace!!!) and put up wainscoting and painted...it looks SO good. I don't have pics of the hallway yet, but I have some reealllly crappy cell phone pictures of the bathroom.
It is the world's smallest bathroom (seriously) and so taking pictures is HARD because you can't get far enough away to get details. However, here is a crappy cellphone picture of the "before". Wallpaper and florescent peach trim. Seriously u.g.l.y.
The mirror is my all time favorite. All I used is paint. I pulled the wall paper down, and then painted the ceiling ultra pure white, then painted the walls "Silver Screen". I looovvveee it. It's so pretty.
Total cost: $92
I had the white paint, my mom painted a bedroom in her house the "silver screen" and so I used her leftovers (the plus to the world's smallest bathroom!) and I had the super cute shower curtain from my old house...so all I had to buy was a new light fixture, new towel bars, new shower rod and new knobs.
Best $100 I ever spent. Hands down.
Here is an "in progress" picture of the hallway. I looovvveeee my floors. They are the original floors from when the house was built. We have pulled the carpet and redone all the floors in the back of the house (looks like a runway!) And my big girl helping daddy mask the floors :)
AND once those projects were done I started in on my Christmas Decorating. I love the holidays.
First there's this piece of classic Americana....
