I have more news. As of now, we are not moving. Which makes my head spin because there are so many things that I want to tackle.
I went right to it with our powder room. I've been wanting to redo it for sooo long. Can you believe that it's been 10 years since I painted that room. That is long for a girl who likes change. I was pregnant with my son and it took me forever to measure and tape off all those diamonds. My hubby loves that pattern and always said no to the re-painting. I already mentioned that he doesn't do well with change.
It is so outdated and I'm very excited to finally get my hands on it.
|Look at the dork in the mirror (aka myself)!|
I'm not sure about what I want to do in there exactly but I have some ideas. Guess I just have to make up my mind.
And I'd like to work with what we have. I can't rip out the vanity since the flooring was built around that boring standard builder's cabinet and we don't want to redo the floor. I do like the storage the cabinet offers and I will redo the vinyl kick plate. Can't stand those!
After ripping out the plain mirror, I realized that the light is hanging way too low for my craigslist mirror that I wanted to hang instead. So I either have to buy a different mirror or have someone hang the light higher. But I really love the mirror:
|And I have to fix all the holes left behind by the mirror|
In case you are wondering how I removed the glued mirror, all I had to do is put a putty knife behind it and slowly start to move it against the mirror. Eventually it popped of in one piece.
I will hopefully be able to get the sanding of the walls done this week, to hide all the lines. And then prime them with some good primer. I think a clean slate is good for applying some new ideas.
There are also several ideas floating in my head for the vanity top. Lets see!
I was so excited to find out that we finally have a "Restore" (Habitat for Humanity) location but when I went there this weekend I was so disappointed. I don't know if it's just me or our area but their prices were ridiculous. Way too expensive! At those prices I'd rather buy new stuff. Do you have any experience with them? If so, please do tell!
Lets see how much I can get done this week. I was also thinking about going to some counter top places to get estimates for our kitchen counters. So much stuff to do and never enough time.
Talk to you on Wednesday.
