New bathroom

While browsing the internet last week I stumbled upon Nesting Place. What a lovely, refreshing site. I have redone my bathroom about 2 times. Never happy with it. Always seemed cold. White cabinets, very light green walls. Just not my style. I wanted to be wrapped in warmth. I kept the colors masculine so my husband can enjoy the bathroom too. He likes it! Yippee!

PS: I already had the paint.

In the process. Pumpernickel cabinets. New hardware makes SUCH a difference.

Someone decided to put these HORRIFIC 80's lighthouse and boat themed tiles in the middle of the tub. I couldn't stand it any longer. I painted over them. I think I'm gonna need to seal these. Total difference for now.

Shopped the house for this Atlas jar. I love these and collect these.

Bought these pictures at Garden Ridge. Buy one get other 1/2 off. Toasted Almond on the walls.

I'll put the toilet paper under my new....................

..............darling curtain under the sink. No-Sew fabric glue and a dowel rod.

So there you have it. Our new relaxing bathroom. I added a lamp to the counter top to give it a soft glow. I love lamps!

Thank you for your inspiration!

Project Red Desk

I was searching Craigslist one Saturday morning and someone had this desk for free. It was near our house and the chances of it still being there were great. It was off the beaten path but
I knew the path!

It has 4 coats of paint on it. Green, white, blue then this lovely shade of red. NOT! It's gonna be alot of hard work, but I love this kind of hard work.

I'll be sure to repost the finished product.

Are you a junker? What projects do you have lined up?
