The tour continues...

Here are some before and after shots of our upstairs bathroom, the only full bathroom in the house. We were happy to have inherited a newly tiled bathroom with beautiful 4 foot wainscoting. The paint color was left unchanged as well. I like that I have the option of completely changing the color scheme of the bathroom on any given day!! I'm a seasonal decorator, so I would say that this is my spring/summer bathroom...I have yet to find/create my fall/winter bathroom decor. Oh, what fun lies ahead!!!

This is a picture of the landing at the top of our steps, just before you enter the bathroom.

First things first, "honey, please take down that shower door right away!!" The first day we started remodeling, sure enough, the shower door was taken out. I was 7 months pregnant at the time and felt so crammed when I was in that shower. By removing the shower door I had the illusion of more space! (side note: it is not recommend to move into a new house while being 7 months pregnant and chasing after a toddler. If this should happen to be your fate, you will survive, I promise!)

that's my Mom in the background! What a hard worker! Thanks for all you did!!!

We have a pottery barn outlet near our home so I had a fun time decorating with some goodies from there! My color scheme originated from a beautiful card, (framed below and hanging on the wall) that my friend Jeane gave to me. I kept it for many years thinking, "someday I will have room that is apple green and pink!"
Here's an old shutter I found at Goodwill for $1,
I use it for my jewelry.
That's all for now.
come back soon,
I'll be here...
