If you remember, this is where we left off on the guest bathroom: One day it was storming in San Antonio so Matthew and I decided to build some shelves in the little closet. Because the closet is so shallow, … Continue reading
A few months ago, Matthew and I finally got around to building shelves into the guest bathroom closet. The linen closet is very shallow so we brought the shelves all the way out to the front of the door trim, … Continue reading
I had a dream the other night that I stole a handbag. I just slipped into my larger handbag with no problem. The following night I had a dream that picked up where the previous night’s dream left off. In … Continue reading
I hope everyone had a great weekend. We enjoyed a little bit of rain on Sunday afternoon, perfect for hunkering down inside and figuring out how to sew in a zipper. Ha…I’ll just say this – it’s in but no … Continue reading
Last Sunday we finished the master bathroom. It was a hard weekend getting it done. It felt like the universe was against us getting this room done, but we finished and we love it. Here’s the before photo for a reminder of the hunting lodge:
And now for the after photos:
Got to have a monogrammed towel:
Our little gallery wall:
There are a couple of items in the gallery wall that I want to call attention to. The first is on the top right. It is one of my great grandmother’s (on my mother’s side) handkerchief’s. Her name was Bernice Cone Brooks. I think the “B” is appropriate, yes? It’s very special to me. I carried it at my grandmother’s funeral in November but was too frightened to use it for fear of getting makeup all over it. Then in December I carried it at my sister’s wedding in my bouquet. Now it has a special place in my bathroom.
The plate in the middle on the first row doesn’t really have a special significance, it is just my favorite plate. It’s from Anthropologie and about this time last year Matthew and I were working out in the living room of our old house and it fell off of the piano where we had it and shattered into four pieces. Luckily I was able to glue it back together.
This is actually from a card I received from a friend, but it was created by a very talented lady I know. I would love to have a huge piece of art from her in my house one day. Click here to purchase some of her smaller works from Etsy.
The last piece of art in our bathroom was a Christmas present from my sister. It was created by the talented Inslee. I just love her work and this is one of my favorites. Maybe it’s because I tend to rock a pony quite often!
So there you have it: our newly painted, much brighter and fresher bathroom.
