Rub a Dub Dub…

I can’t believe I actually got my bathroom walls painted this weekend, plus a few other finishing touches…Not quite ready for its debut, still need to add some color and a new shower curtain. Which brings me to this, why are shower curtains so ugly? I have found a few that I would be willing to own, BUT they’re all about 2 inches shorter than I want.

So, the options are

Buy a curtain that’s too short and will drive me crazy…

or make/ alter one myself…I could add fabric to a ready made curtain…

And, I really like the look of two curtains…

Would it be bad to show off all that ugly green tile?

That Wasn’t So Hard…

  I’ve been wanting to do something with our hall bath for a long time and I finally got my chance…the paper started peeling!!!

It may have been because I started picking at the edge but that’s neither here nor there…

It came off easy peasy!  I was so happy because with wallpaper, you never know what kind of job it will be.

After doing my brother’s old room, I really wasn’t wanting a hard, long job…only one patch to fix…

I think I’m going to copy Danika again  and do something with gold metallic…

Gorgeous Shiny Things

I’m thinking I’ll keep mine a little more simple,  maybe just vertical lines…hopefully by the end of the weekend.

We’ve Got Progress…

I finally got the chandy and moulding Rub n’ Buff(ed) in my dining room finished…

We started with this…

Then it changed to this…

And here we are today…(taken at night with a flash so sorry for the poor quality)

And…I’m considering re-doing my dining room table...again

The finish on the table and chairs was really bad and after about 5 years of looking at it something had to be done…

I think I jumped too soon. I should have stuck with my original idea…

Don’t laugh, yes it’s the dining room from The Blind Side, BUT I like the look of the stained table and painted chairs, but I’d like something with no sheen.

Of course I’d rather have this…

But I’m gonna have to work with what I got.

So after probably only 6 months of it having been redone, I want it redone…again

Back in the Saddle Again…

Sorry for the extremely long absence.  I was literally working day and night to get ready for our auction.  I’ll post the final pics when I get around to loading them. 

I’m ready to get back to normal…clean house, wash clothes (I was on the verge of having to borrow the hubby’s undies…oh yeah, I got REAL behind on the housewife duties)  have some home cooked dinners and catch up on what’s been going on in the blogosphere…

It may take me a few days to come up with something post worthy…I’ve got some unfinished projects to finish…and that book that arrived unexpectedly last week…haven’t cracked the spine yet…I (still) can’t wait to dive into it!!

Be patient and check back in a few days…

I Can Relate…

I walked past my front door last night and noticed a brown box.  Of course I get very antsy when things I order arrive, but I wasn’t expecting anything this time.  I brought in the box, it was from Amazon.  What the hell is this??

I shakily cut the tape with scissors fully expecting it to be a bomb. 
It wasn’t.  It was this book that I had pre-ordered and completely forgot about…

The title is something I can relate to, it sums up what this house looks like on a daily basis…if you took out the “perfectly” part…

I can’t wait to find some spare time to absorb every page!!
