Before I show you pictures of my completed bathroom, can we just establish that I am officially too old to be doing these marathon room makeovers anymore?
I know that I am, as a mother, supposed to be setting a good example for my children. But I am pretty sure I complained for two solid days about being tired or sore or overweight. Sometimes I just complained that I didn’t have anything to complain about because they were such a great help.
I mean really….when Jacob and Hope are gone I am going to be in serious trouble. Who will cut all of my boards and build my insane ideas? I feel confident that when James is the only guy left around here my shelf building days will be over.
I’m not going to share the technical details. For one thing, I’m tired. And for another, I’m sending those over to the One Project Closer folks to share with the world. I’ll let you know when there’s a link, if any of you are interested in how to do wear yourself out saving money.
I am just going to give you eye candy….delicious bathroomness that will make you smile.
And this morning, when I went to use my non-leaking potty, this is what it looked like.
Want to see more?
I will put my hand on a stack of Bibles and swear that I didn’t buy anything but one gallon of floor paint. Apparently I have a lot of junk around here. I didn’t even realize how much!
Don’t you love the old doors on the back wall?
I had my minions build me some shelves for over my toilet. We used wood from a pallet. The galvanized tub holds my “private lady things”. I desperately needed a place to hide them.
Now I will show you how I used my love, the Cricut, in the room. I really should get some kind of endorsement fee from them.
Would you believe that I had these little knobs already? We bought them for a project that we never did. Hooray for procrastination!
Of course I had to monogram myself a towel. I have informed James that just because it says “His” doesn’t mean he can use it.
The word for the day, boys and girls, is burlap. I used it everywhere. Window covering, closet door curtain, towel bar, shower curtain, and to cover the enormous hot water heater.
I know it sounds impossible, but I even had a chair cover. I bought it at IKEA about a year ago and it has been sitting in my closet ever since.
I need your opinions here….do you think I should monogram it? Or is it enough already? If you think I should, then what to put on it?
Wait! You can’t fully appreciate this unless you see the before:
An how about the floor color? I love it! I used it to paint a bunch of little things in the room, including the clock hands.
There you go….there’s nothing left to complain about. Bummer.
