Be our guest…touring the guest bath

All aboard the tour train. I believe our next scheduled stop is the guest bath…

When we moved into our new home in July, I was already fond of the dramatic dark gray found on this bathroom’s walls. A few pops of red really made all the difference….

There are really only two things left to complete in this room. First, the mirror needs it finish being transformed into a glossy red…

And the picture frames above the toilet need…well…pictures.

Just in case you are wondering, here is a short list of where we purchased our bathroom decor.

Shower curtain- Target
Shower curtain rod-Target
Shelves above toilet- Target
Red picture frame on shelf- Hobby Lobby
Distressed white picture frames- cheap frames from Wal-Mart with a DIY distress
Orbs on shelf- Pier1
Red paint on doors and mirror- Olympic ONE in the color “apple-a-day”

Kitchen rewind…

Alrighty, people! You’re going to have to hit your mental rewind button for this post! Our next stop was SUPPOSED to be the guest bath, but, low and behold, an amazing miracle happened. I was able to give the ol’ kitchen a makeover this weekend! Woo to the hoo!

Let’s start with the pictures from before the mini makeover…

You get the idea. Let me start the mini facelift pictures by bragging about the fact that it cost us $25. I used leftover paint from the other rooms in the house. The only items we purchased were two cans of Valspar chalkboard paint (thus our black accent wall). By Tuesday afternoon, that wall is scheduled to have some little girl art-work gracing its surface…

Now normally in life, I live by the motto of avoiding drama, but this dramatic look (courtesy of our black chalkboard wall) has me doing a happy little dance. And the white? Wow. You don’t even have to be able to see the white walls to notice how much more light is being bounced around the kitchen.

There are only two projects left until we can label this room finished. First, our pantry door ( the only white non-windowed door in the pictures) will be painted a deep red. Luckily we already have the perfect paint, so that will cost us zip! I would also LOVE to replace the 15-light door that leads to the garage with a stained wooden door (with a smaller window). Windows are great, but being able to see out into the garage seems pointless.

There you have it: a great summary of how I spent the weekend. It was totally worth it. Next time we will try to get this home tour train back on track. Our stop? The guest bath…
