Baby Shower Bliss

Today I am popping in with a few highlights of my Daughter's baby shower. Yep, I am going to be a Zsa Zsa again. Yay! We haven't received the professional pictures from the shower yet, so all of the pictures were taken with a cell phone. Once my daughter decided on a theme Bumble Bees/Daisies we went to work. Several weeks of prep work was done to make the baby shower possible. But in the end it was worth it. Enjoy the pics!  Lots and lots of prep work was done before the room got to this point. Let's see, we painted the terracotta pots, made all the paper flowers as well as the place mats, just to name a few. Did I mention we made all the paper flowers? If you look to the left of the picture you will see my little sweet heart and my good friend Mandy. My grandbaby was super excited, because she was going to be our little Hostess for the day.   This is how the room looked before we put our special touch on it. That's me in the black/white fedora. And y

Styling the Master Bath....

Today is reveal day and I am super excited to share our finally finished Master bath with you. It has taken several months to complete this project and I think you are going to be amazed at the results. Just in case you don't remember what this bathroom use to look like you can see it here . Our old bathroom had been stuck in a time warp and after living with the space for several years it was time to do a major reno. So we rolled up our sleeves and went to work. You like? Since the space is Tom Thumb size it was really hard to photograph but some how we managed. In order to keep cost down we did a lot of repurposing. My Husband had taken the above pic several months ago. So I shopped the house and found a frame that would work nicely with this picture. Initially the frame was brown, but I painted it a crisp clean white and that did the trick.    The glass shelves were another way we cut cost. We had a large piece of glass from a previous project just sitting

Make Me Over Again...Dresser Turned Vanity

Instead of purchasing a vanity for our bathroom we decided to transform an existing dresser. We knew that we wanted the bathroom to be mostly white, with a pop of color. So when it was time to makeover the dresser painting it white was the easy part. The dresser was primed and two coats of white paint was applied. Thanks Hubby! You like? When I first purchased the dresser it was beige and it was heavily stained. I think the previous owner must have been a smoker, ( no offense smokers ) so I painted it a rust color. I was hoping that the paint would cover the heavy staining, and absorb the unpleasant smell. Luckily for me it did both. This is actually one of the pieces I purchased from my friend John. You can read about John here . That's me standing on the bed trying to get a before pic of the dresser. Unfortunately this is the only before pic that I have of  the cut out for the sinks. So you know what that means, I don't have any pics of the process. Sorry!

From Worn Out to WOW!...Tiling the Master Bath Shower.

Where did the time go? It's been three months since my last post. But what can I say? Life happens! Any who the past three months have been a blur, but now I am ready to get back into the blogging groove. The last time I popped in we had demoed the master bath, painted the walls, and tiled the floors . So today's post is all about the shower. Are you ready for this? DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!     Behold the finished shower!!! But before I go any further I would like for you to take a trip with me down memory lane. Whose with me?      This is how the shower looked before Hubby rolled up his sleeves and went to work. Yikes! The old shower surround had to be cut into pieces in order to get it out of the bathroom. Major headache! Even though this remodel was long overdue at this point in the Reno, I became a tad bit nervous. Once the shower surround had been removed the old insulation was replaced and the shower floor was prepped. Now I could  breathe a sigh of
