I Get an A++!

When it comes to procrastination I get an A. Plus. PLUS!

It's been since March that I last posted an update on our bathroom/bedroom redo (that's 3 months, people!) and I've spent that long procrastinating. Delaying. Coming up with better things to do than paint, sand, scrub, clean (did I mention paint yet?)

In my defense, March came along and brought with it gorgeous Spring weather, so instead of working inside, Olivia and I spent our time outside enjoying the mild, sunny days. But, recently, since the outside temps have been such that the Devil himself would be comfortable right here in the great state of South Cackalacky, it's forced me to stay inside and get stuff D.O.N.E!

This is were we started with our bathroom...

Bathroom before.



Bathroom after.



Cabinet before.


Remember my $45 cabinet from the Habitat ReStore?? We cut off the towel bar at the bottom, cut off the extra wood at the top, added crown molding and "Voila!" It's one of my favorite additions to the bathroom!



Cabinet after.


I have been working diligently in our bedroom, too, over the last 2 weeks. Everything has been touched with a paintbrush--walls, ceiling, baseboards, crown molding, window casings.



Bedroom before.



Bedroom after.


There are still a few things I need to do in the way of accessorizing. I would like to find some sort of sconces to hang on either side of the picture above the bed, and I have 2 mirrors that need to be hung above both nightstands.



Before.



After.

Top of our armoire.


I still have some little things to finish here and there, but for the most part I can finally cross these two rooms off of my "to-do list!"

Sincerely,

Leigh
