Well I have something to show you ..................finally!
The upstairs bathroom was never a huge issue in my mind - as unappealing as it was, I knew I could do something on the " cheap " with it -
Here's the before ( this is the actual MLS photo that appeared on the original listing )
and here's what very little work did for it ( and I do mean very little ) so don't be expecting any huge miracles here lol
I had just enough left over paint ( from a few years ago actually ) to do the walls ..............it's a very pretty sort of aqua.............
I had bought the shelf unit for our last home.
I painted out that heater thingamabob and the window frame with paint I already had on hand - switched the towel rack for the one that was downstairs ( since that bathroom has to be gutted )
and then I simply shopped around the house for accessories - so not one dime was spent on this little
Oops sorry - I bought the mat..............19.99 - and it's totally the wrong color because I bought it before I knew what I was doing in there!
The accessories are strictly what I could find because truthfully we still haven't unpacked most of our stuff and so they will most likely be changed before it's finished - but since I change things weekly it won't exactly be out of the norm for me anyway lol
My little bird cage bought at Michael's a year or so ago - and the jewellery box Lindsay and Tony gave me at their rehearsal dinner.
My " star " tea light holder ( with the chain beside it - it's supposed to be suspended but the chain fell off and I have no idea where it goes - so I have to go back to Pier 1 and hope they still have them - so that I can inconspicuously examine it ) Inspector Clouseau at your service once again
The biggest change came from painting the heater vent white - don't you think?
I still have to hang something on the window - but it does have a privacy film on it for now at least.
John says - What the hell is a wreath doing hanging on the towel bar?
Suzan says - I think it's pretty
John says - How am I supposed to grab a towel from behind it?
Suzan says - DO NOT TOUCH THOSE TOWELS - YOU UNDERSTAND?
Suzan says - It took me 20 minutes to fold them the right size
John says - Here we go again - candles we can't light - dishes we can't use - now towels we can't dry with?
Suzan says - Take a towel from the linen closet - what's the big deal?
Suzan says - BUT DON'T MESS IT UP WHEN YOU GRAB A TOWEL.........PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
The linen closet makeover is Here
Tomorrow I'll show you the bedroom - and the curtains I found to almost - oh so close - match these
But for now I'm going to soak in a very hot - very bubbly bath
Oh - and then I'm going to run downstairs and look at my sanded floors - before they're stained dark
and torment myself for a couple of hours on whether dark was the right decision after all :)
P.S - had I changed the floors I would have most definitely went with wide planks - but since we're NOT changing them - I have to tell you - I'm really loving these skinny slats almost as much!!!
( except that we had to pay a fortune to have them replicated in areas where they had to be patched e.g. where walls used to be - they don't make them this size any more )
You all have a wonderful Sunday everybody :)
