Well I think I have reached the end of the nursery decorating. The room we had to work with is very small coming in at 8×9, perfect size for a nursery or office. I was a bit nervous it wasn’t all going to fit at 1st, but we got it all it.
Take a gander
The nursery is not the only new thing in our house. For the past 4/5 months we have been on the search for a new couch. They were either to expensive or to big, so on. We finally found one where the price was right! We were able to pick a fabric we loved and have it custom built. They said 8 to 10 week wahhh wahhh. Well thanks to a christmas miracle it showed up in a months time!
Here is what our living room looked before
And here is what it looks like now! It’s going to take some getting use to, but I LOVE IT!!
The rocking chair will go where the tree is now.
That back left corner is kinda bugging me, but what can I do? I’m also not crazy about the couch not being centered under the window but again it fits better this way. SO welcome to the world my new baby… couch!
Remember way back when, I started the EASY basement bathroom reno? Yeah me either 🙂
Any who we hit a few road bumps and I had to bring in a plumber to help finish the job. So much for an easy quick project. After taking a look at the plumbing he was shock that there were no shut offs either. A few hours of him banging around the old sink was out and I was able to install the new floor. Which would have been easy if the floor was square. Cutting peel and stick tile out around pipes and the toilet was not fun! He came back a few days later to put the new sink in, again not as easy as I thought it would be. Here is a peek back at the old bathroom.
Are you ready for this…?
It looks sooooo much better, yes it turned out to be a pain in the ass but some projects are just like that. Here is a side by side look.
Well I did it… well not all of it, but most of it. One second I was just weeding and doing normal yard work, and the next I was chopping down the large pricker bushes. I didn’t do as much as I originally planned on doing, but I’m very happy with the outcome!
DAY 1 ( rip em out)
I wanted to transplant all the pachysandra to the side of the house but it was just to hard to dig it all up. So I ripped it out, I know, I know lame. I’m paying for it though, my arms are killing me!
I bought 5 new bushes to plant as well. They are tiny right now but next summer they will look great. Girls on a budget but at 6 bucks a pop not to shabby. Here is what they will look like one day
I messed around a bit more with photoshop last night. What do you all think? YAY or NAY??
With it being spring and all, I LOVE working in the yard! So far I’ve just been cleaning up this winters mess. Take a looksy to what I’ve been up too.
I have a few ideas up my sleeves too, here is what I’m thinking about…
Take a peek above to see what it looks like now. I want to take out the two big pickery bushes on either sides of the windows. They are to big and a pain in the butt to trim up. I’d also like to paint the siding on the peak of the house a light grey, to jazz the house up. This might just be a memorial day project! 🙂
The basement bathroom project has been humming along until this weekend. I started painting and taking down all the fixtures I didn’t need or want. 1st thing to go was the toilet seat, the new one was only 5 bucks and SO worth it (ewww). Next I made my way over to the vanity and started undoing all the screws that seemed like they were holding it together…and thats where the progress stopped. I found 2 problems that were above my knowledge.
The lights– I unscrewed it and was expecting to see a junction box. NOPE just this hot mess!
Not really sure where to go from here… any thoughts out there in cyberspace??
The Plumbing- ummm where do I begin? So we have no IDEA where the hot water shut off is, so how does one change out the fixtures then??
The pipe on the left is the hot water line, it go’s into the wall behind the vanity. Leaving the vanity trapped, in its UGLY location. Again anyone out there with any ideas??
So yeah thats where I’m stuck I hate not having this project done already 😦 Here is a peek at how it all looks right this very second.
I laid the new tile down just to see what it would look like.
look how lonely he looks 😦 just waiting for his new home.
OI I hate this mess, and I thought this was going to be a easy little project… boooooooooooooooo.
