Additional Bathroom Pics

Here is a couple of additional pics that I forgot to take of the bathroom :) I haven't really decided what to hang on the towel rack. I would love to find just a small quilt type piece to hang there or towels. I haven't found any that I like yet. The tissue holder I found at the Good Will for a $1.00 painted and primed it up! I love the color it ended up being.

Dining Area Progress

Well since I shared last week my bathroom I thought I would show you what is actually on the other side of the half bath. As you enter our front door we have a small and I do mean very small entry areaWalking through the dining area My pic in between the walking area.... Its says at the bottom "God's Promises are like the stars, the darker the night the brighter they shine"
once you come through the door you can either go up the stairs or head straight through the dining room.

The little entrance area goes to the small bathroom down in my last post.

This is suppose to be I guess a dining area ....... but if you know me Im so not a formal foofoo kinda gal :) I still haven't gotten it the exact way I want it but, Im getting there! Slowly but surely. It definantly looks alot better than it did since it was a complete empty room for a year! I want to actually get a buffet or table to go on the wall where my star picture is. I also know that my table arrangement will eventually change. Just gotta get some more money!! A little at a time for sure! I also have been on the look out fo some candles that I can afford.

Half Bath Remodel Project!!!!

I promise my bathroom wasn't as ugly before as it looks in these pics :) When we moved in the previous owner had just completely had the house professionally painted... I could not justify putting the money out to paint so I worked with the green color in this half bath that is between our formal dining area and our family living room. It also wasn't as bare as it is in the pics I had already taken some stuff down.

Fixtures I bought at Home Depot and primed up.

These pics are on the main wall as you are walking into the bathroom

This pic is on the wall in front of the toilet. I also hung a towel rack above the toilet with another sampler pic. (I forgot to take that pic) Im still not completely finished. Im on the lookout for a trash can and I want to find some prim towels to match the samplers.... of course I will probably end up making those.

Table Re-do!

Anyone who knows me know's that Im definantly a budget, goodwilling, thrift store, coupon cutting kinda girl :) I love garage selling too! Which is where I found this ugly little table about a month ago! It was soooo ugly! But, HEY.... it was only $5.00 and I could just see the potential! I have a small wall coming out of our half bath that I *thought* this would look perfect under..... I was sooo wrong! Thought it would also work in the half bath but, it was to big so it found it's permanent home in our very small entry area!!!

Im very happy with the end result! I also made the stacking boxes and found the doily at the dollar tree and "primed" it up!
