Master Bathroom Ideas

Hi all, hope you had a great weekend. Can you believe that it's August already?  My summer vacation is almost over, and in a few weeks I will be headed back to work. I really didn't get much accomplished pertaining to home improvement, there were other things that were more pressing. After I finished my office the plan was to add the finishing touches to the master-bedroom. Well, that didn't happen, instead my attention was redirected to a busted pipe in the master bathroom. Ugh!



 About four years ago we encountered the exact same problem, but on that occasion we enlisted the services of a plumber. I guess I don't have to tell you what that meant, a whole lotta cash. When it was all said and done that plumber had ripped us a new one. No pun intended!


This time instead of hiring a plumber Hubby tackled the job himself. He rented a jackhammer from the Home Depot and busted up the floor. Several hours later the leak was fixed at a fraction of the plumbers cost. Thank goodness for a handy husband.

 

Did I mention Hubby also fixed a leak in the wall? ( see drywall  patch ) Since the plumbing episode I have been sourcing the web for bathroom ideas. I think now would be a great time to remodel. The bathroom is super tiny, (Tom Thumb size) but the goal is to make this space amazing. The ideal bathroom for me would be mostly white, with an amazing piece of furniture turned vanity, topped with brushed nickle faucets/accessories. Below are some inspirational pics that caught my eye.

This bathroom is stunning, and the floors are awesome. And I really like the wall color too. I found a porcelain tile similar to the one pictured, called Calcutta. And I have the perfect shade of  gray-blue for my walls, (secret passage/Olympic). hm!

Another beautiful piece of furniture turned vanity. I would love to find an amazing piece of furniture for my master bath as well. So I'm keeping my eyes open and my fingers crossed hoping that I will.

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
