i feel like that grandma who takes out pictures of her grandchildren (all 19 of them) or your cousin who just got a digital camera and went on vacation to a stamp museum and has taken a picture of every stamp in the building. so with that in mind, (and complete understanding if you nod off) here's some pictures of our almost finished but at least finally usable, bathroom. in case you haven't been avidly following along, you can click here and here for the before pictures.
|extremely pale blue on the walls (maybe would have liked them to be a bit less pale but you didn't hear that from me)|
|so much trouble finding a light that would fit with the medicine cabinet and the position of the existing electrical box and the outlets below. finally found a galvanized outdoor light from lowes that fits my opposites attract design sense.|
|added an old glass knob from my collection to the medicine cabinet after we painted it a shiny black|
|in this light the walls look just right. the tub has been peeled of it's magenta paint to reveal what looks like gold leaf. can you have both gold and silver leaf in the same room? um... yup! i'm in love with the tub and the ceiling.|
we still have things to figure out, like what to do with the sink/stove and the floor but we're getting there. now comes the fun part, right? looking for fabric for curtains, maybe an old distressed shelf for the wall, shower curtain, art... yay!
here's a preview of our downstairs bathroom. maybe in the winter i'll be ready to sand and peel again.

and on a completely different note, here's some new work in the shop
didn't mean to offend any stamp lovers out there. i really do love them! just maybe not a museum full of them.
