I knew that I've changed the way I do projects -- at a pace that suits me instead of being totally obsessed until a project is completed. However, the photo dates from the blog has almost put me to shame....but not quite. :D
This photo was taken February 20, 2009 and sent to Layla at The Lettered Cottage for an online design consultation sometime around the first of April or May.
Layla sent back this suggestion sometime in June 2009.
I mulled over her suggestion but played around with Behr's Colorsmart program and decided to go in this direction.
This photo was taken August 30 while I was working on the shower curtain.
I started taping the walls on September 16, 2009.
I kept dragging my feet before painting the cabinets. There was an aversion to sanding inside the cabinets. The cabinets took three coats of paint inside and out. It was not until yesterday that I finished taping and painted the edges. Hopefully, the walls will only require one coat of paint. The walls are on today's, Sunday, October 25, schedule. :D During the intervening days, I bought towels, baskets, towel bars, a picture, and gray bath rugs.
This light fixture is to be replaced with a brushed nickel, 3-light fixture. The towel bars are a brushed nickel.........just waiting for me to finish the walls.
I've picked out a brushed nickel/stainless light plate and hope to replace these ugly cream light switches and plugs. I plan to call an electrician to make the changes. In addition, I still have to design the backsplash to do fused glass tiles. I've been looking around various decorating and fused glass sites to get some ideas. I bought the glass September 2008. lol But, as soon as the walls are finished, I'm going to get serious about the tiles. The first design idea will not work, so it is back to the drawing board.
I must say that it is much more pleasurable to take one's time when doing a project; however, I did not realize just how long. Blogging, however, about various projects, etc., does have its good points; but then again, does it?
Life is good, isn't it!
Until next time, God bless.
