There's Always a Room for Improvement

The house projects continue. Yesterday we primed and painted the bathroom off of the kitchen, and Michael installed a beautiful new light fixture in our entry way. We spent way too much time at Lowe's and Home Depot picking out a beautiful new Venetian brass faucet for the bathroom we painted, along with new towel bar, lighting, additional brass accessories and matching brass knobs for the bottom cupboards and drawers on the vanity to replace all the silver. I'm excited, Michael is exhausted.

We've had quite the day. In addition to putting in a new ceiling fan, removing a toilet, and cutting a new hole in the wall to fit the new light fixture, there's a mess in the hallway and my kitchen table is covered in everything from tools to accessories. Thank heaven we don't have to update the cupboards or counter tops. Lucky for us, the previous owners remodeled this bathroom and put in granite countertops and nice wood work before we moved in. At least that's one expense we won't have to endure.

That being said, I really can't wait till the house projects are done. The bedroom in the basement still remains tore up as we haven't had a chance to start working on that because we've been consumed with upstairs projects. I know it will be totally worth it, but I can be impatient and want it done now :) I guess the good thing about doing it ourselves, (besides doing it right) is we'll certainly have a new appreciation for it once it's all done.
