Master Bath Remodel.....Demolition

Happy New Year again. I hope your new year is off to a great start. I am excited about todays post so bear with me, this is part one of a three part post. In August of 2013 we had another pipe to spring a leak in our master bathroom you can see it here.  Since Hubby had to jack hammer the floor we decided that this would be a great time to redo the master bath.

Dream Bath in Blue: Stunning Statement Pieces
I found this pic and the one below and they were the source of my inspiration for our space. I knew for certain that I wanted the bathroom to be mostly white with light gray walls.

Think White
I love the addition of yellow that was brought in by using fresh flowers.
Since the leak was under the vanity it had to be completely torn out. YAY! So my guy/guys got busy with the demo.  
Hold onto your hats you have just entered the demolition/danger zone!

This place is about to blow!!!


The shower surround was ripped out as well and it will be replaced with tile. I can't wait!

The leak was in two different places and the Hubs had to bust through 18 inches of concrete to fix the problem.

This is how the space looked after the leak had been fixed and everything was removed from the bathroom. Yikes! Now that demolition was over we knew we had a long road ahead of us, so we prepared our hearts in advance. The first order of business was to select/purchase the tile. This would be easy since I already had a general idea as to what I wanted.

These are the tiles that were selected and I really like them a lot. Come back soon to see how amazingly awesome the tile looks in our master bathroom.

Have a Magnificent Monday!



  1. Hmmmm!!!! Eager to see what's happening there.

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!

Chat soon...

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…
