My first post! And a Bathroom Facelift

So welcome one and all - well, really it's just one (thanks Tiff) - to my very first blog post. It's a new world out here in blogland that I still need to discover so if anyone else decides to follow me, please be kind, patient, and forgiving as I make tweaks and work this thing into what I'm imagining it to be.

One of our first projects in our new home we bought in September, 2009 (it'll be a year in 2 weeks!) was to give our sad bathroom a facelift. It looked like this after we took down the three-paneled mirrored medicine cabinet:

Then we painted the walls a neutral beige tone and added some oil rubbed bronze to our hardware. I'm happy with the outcome and think it looks very crisp and simple:

Since these after photos were taken, the toilet paper holder has been finished, my husband helped me install an ORB light fixture above the mirror, the hubbs and my father-in-law installed an ORB faucet, and I hung a striped linen valence at the top of the window frame.

I'd still like to install a nicer flooring. The current flooring is a laminate tile and I'd like to do a wood floor look, even if it's not real wood - I'm ok with the new peel and stick laminate wood planks :)

Also, you can't see the linen closet, but it's a hot mess with 80's inspired heart cut-outs on the door and all. Sooooooo, that's gotta go. I'm thinking of doing an open shelving concept with pretty baskets hiding our essentials for a fresh, organized look. More to come on all that later, but right now it's on to other more important things, like enjoying the arrival of Fall and, oh yeah, PAINTING!! ;)

Bye for now!


  1. I feel so inspired after visiting your blog. I look forward to many, many more posts to come. Happy blogging, you little blogger you!

  2. I like how the pumpkins turned out! I believe Halloween spelled coming down the steps as you have pictured is the best way to display as I think ones eye is drawn to the top of the stairs first. Can't wait to see more!!!!!
