I had a crazy, busy, fun day today, in which I neglected to do anything productive, but found important ways to share my time with people I love. The best part of the day was watching Ella Enchanted with my kids on our new couch, where we all fit and no one had to sit on the floor or wiggle around on my lap. It was heavenly!
Now that the kids are in bed, I’m too tired to do a “real” post, so I’m going to take the advice of the comedian on my NaBloPoMo badge below and not overthink things. Since it’s clean and there are no more boxes to unpack in it, I will unveil my new bathroom to you. I think this is my favorite room. Seriously. I might just paint my bedroom this color.
For comparison purposes, here’s the old, yucky bathroom:
And here’s the new, pretty, fresh, clean bathroom:
Brand new sink (that is NOT a laminate kitchen one), brand new vanity (they broke the old one pulling it out), new faucets, brand new paint job, brand new sheet rock, and NO wood paneling. (Hallelujah!)
New vinyl flooring, new towel rack and toilet paper dispenser, new tile on the bottom of the shower, new paint and, most importantly, NO WOOD PANELING.
The color we picked is called “Geyser”, and it is the softest, palest blue. (It looks dark in this picture because the lighting is terrible.) Austin, the contractor, offered to texture the walls for me, and with the uneven surfaces, the paint reminds me of wispy clouds.
Walking into the bathroom makes me smile. My family is acting strangely, however, and they refuse to use it, preferring to keep it in its pristine state. Now, I’m all for a clean bathroom, but when they start chastising me for using it the way it was intended, well, that’s where I put the seat down.
