My new favorite room



I worked so hard on this tiny room i can't believe it. The stripes took a very long time- because of the texture of the walls, i drew the lines on the wall in pencil then painted them in by hand. FOREVER. But, now i love it. there's a great new light fixture, floating towel holder, a new terrycloth shower curtain, it's just really cool. I've divided my home projects into months. A couple of different reasons for this, one- we can't afford to do it all at once, two- it's overwhelming to think about everything i want to do in the house, and three- i don't have time to do it all at once. So, last month was the guest bathroom, this month is the office, Nov. is the guest bedroom, Dec is a free month because I will have too much else to do, Jan. is the den, Feb. is the kitchen, and March we will start working on the yard again. At the end of the month i'll post a before and after of the office. I probably won't get it painted by the end of the month but organization is the goal and i'm already 1/2 way there.
Hope you like the bathroom. If you want stripes on your wall, i'll tell you how to do it but i probably won't help... sorry but i'm tired of stripes for awhile :-)

WOW!! That looks great Cat. You did a fantastic job on the stripes because I know how hard it is to do that. Pat yourself on the back!

I have the contact paper.

I know what words I want on my wall.

I know what font I want to use.

I know where I want to the words to go on my wall.

I don't know where the motivation went to put words on my wall.

It's gone. The wall remains blank.

The bathroom looks super cool! Terry cloth shower curtain? I need that. Then when no one has a towel b/c I never do laundry we can take it down and use it.

I need to come check it out and play Wii golf.
