Master Bath Gets a Face Lift

Just as an update to my last post, with the addition of the deduction of the real estate taxes paid at closing our combined total state and federal refund came to $1600! We haven’t actually received our return yet, but that didn’t stop us from spending some of our proceeds in anticipation, thanks mostly to […]

The Housewarming Party Blues

After all of the stress, money, last minute renovations and repairs our housewarming party was sort of a bust. I KNEW things weren’t going to go well when friday night (the night before the party) we discovered that the faucet we bough for the downstairs party room didn’t have the bolts on it.  We had […]

Smooshing – Don’t Try This at Home!

Have to be quick, preparing for party tomorrow! We tried the smooshing, rolled on the BM metallic veil cream over the BM revere pewter undercoat.  Applied the plastic sheeting and shmooshed.. then peeled and it looked really weird..the patterns the plastic made seemed too busy, too close together. Maybe we didn’t do it right? So […]

Muddy Gray Powder Room – EEK!

We painted the BM Revere Pewter in the downstairs powder room last night.. its one of those chameleon like colors. It looked like a pure gray in my test patch, but when I got the fan deck outside in the natural light it had a distinct mauvish pinky gray undertone.  And last night, but the […]

Weekend Update – in which Not Much gets done

Baroque Brocade Bathroom Inspiration

I can’t possibly write a real post today, my head is swimming with random ideas and bits of information on wall treatments and how I can get a metallic-ish, brocade-ish, baroque-ish feel in the powder room. So here’s a little pictoral peak inside the madness: (image from Decor8 archives) from Brocade Home Farrow & Ball […]

Preparation for the Housewarming Party

…that may never come. I’m having a terrible time picking a date when our small handful of close friends will be available. So instead, we decided to have a few people who are around this holiday weekend over for a small gathering this Sunday and schedule a bigger to-do for the last week in September […]

Powder Room Progress – (Though it doesn’t look like it)

The weekend started with a trip to Lowes Friday Night to look for a pedestal sink. Jeff decided to head out to the garden section (which is outdoors) to look for a large planter. Spotting one he liked on the shelf above his head, he tilted it towards him to look inside. Big mistake! Jeff […]

Yay, Jeff Comes Home Today!

So I can finally reveal the ultimate reason almost nothing has gotten done in past 10 days – Jeff’s been away on a business trip! (I was hesitant to broadcast over the world wide web that I was home alone or I would have mentioned it earlier.) So now that we’ve set a date for […]
