That 'ol project list just keeps getting longer... I haven't been able to accomplish much on my bathroom reno with the rainy weekends we've been having, so I have been doing little things. Like the bench in my front entry that needed a coat of paint, except that then it was too white and so I added a coat of dark wax to warm up the colour:
|Don't know if you can actually see the difference! It has an|
amber hue to it now. Looks much nicer against the tan wall.
or the brown box I had in my bathroom that needed a makeover when I repainted the room and went with white towels and accessories:
Funny how I can see now how awful that yellow paint was in the space!!! Sigh, wish I could figure out colour on the FIRST try - lol!
The baskets in my entry that were dark brown got rollered over with off-white paint:
I love the way these turned out! Lighter but I still get to keep some of my favourite espresso brown...
which led to me rollering over the laundry basket in the bathroom:
and then I wanted a little window box overflowing with flowers. This is the window I look through when I'm sitting in my breakfast nook:
A hanging window basket from Superstore and a trip to the nursery for plants - I'm in heaven!! I've hardly done any gardening this year so far.
All the projects were super simple and quick and sooooo satisfying!
Easy, peasy projects - you gotta love 'em!!
As it turned out, Sunday was mostly dry and I did get a few of the beadboard panels hung in my bathroom. I pulled muscles in my back & right shoulder in my struggle to install the first ceiling panel and gave up the ghost a little later. I popped the vanity and toilet into place so I could get a feeling of how it will look. Here's a sneak peek - forgive the mess!
I hung the mirror up high so I can install a shelf underneath it. Oh I can't wait to get to the decorating part and hang up this diy contractor's hat for good! (well, maybe not for good since I bought over $1000 worth of power tools in the last two years...) Oh and "rollering over it" is a technical term for us painters who always keep a mini painter's cage with a sleeve on it that is full of paint (in a baggie in the fridge) for these little jobs that we can't put off until the next time we paint... Yes, I'm that crazy.
Have a happy & creative week!
