Picture post 1 - redecorating

I've posted saying how frantic I've been the last week with keeping my mind OFF of surgery. I also documented this in pictures.



Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the huge garage sale. I DID take pictures of the results - what I have been able to do with the money.

Ok, I need to be honest. I did a lot of this WITHOUT garage sale money and was just damn glad I made enough to make up for what I had spent. *laugh*

Here is what I did with the guest bathroom - new paint, new shower curtain, new floor, new lights:







Here is the master bath. I want to put new flooring in here too, but it will be a MUCH bigger job than the guest bath since it's about the size of a small bedroom.









This is the mirror I've been refinishing and need to find a good place to hang. I still haven't decided whether I will paint it or leave it as is.



Not to forget that I did clean out a HUGE closet and put up shelves in there to organize the kids' toys and crafts, as well as my crafts.



Finally, the small amount of work I've done in our room. Ignore the fringes of the junk that's in there. That's where I throw everything when working on OTHER parts of the house :)





I'm quite pleased with myself. Now is time to rest and recover.

Wow! Quite impressive. I really like the flooring in the guest bath. Is that linoleum or is it real wood?

I covet your big tub in the master bath!!!

But I also had to laugh that your toilet paper seems to have the same malfunction that ours does. We always buy that defective brand that never can seem to put itself on the spindle. I'm thinking of writing and complaining to the manufacturer.

It's linoleum or some sort of vinyl tiles. 12" x 12".

That damn toilet paper. It's amazing how quickly it learns to take itself out of our contrived cages and live like it does in the wild.

I LOVE my bath, but don't use it enough. Big corner tub with power jets. Mmmmm.

I would love to do things like that. Only problem is, I have the attention span of a gnat. I throw myself into projects and get a TON done, but know better than to take on big projects :) Sometime in the next year, I'll get an idea and attack a room upstairs for my kids...sometime. :)

Oh, I see you found me through the wonderful georgiaskydiver or standbackstevie. Welcome to the fold :) It'll probably be a week or two of bitching, and then return to our regularly scheduled nonsense.
