This morning I woke up with one heckuva cold. The pressure in my sinuses feels like an anvil on my face. The sisters are still sleeping currently, and I’m hoping and praying that they wake up not feeling like I do. Because this momma is in no shape to win parent-of-the-year today.
I won’t be winning blogger-of-the-year either… because we’re mid-project at the moment, and I have no beautiful finished awesomeness to share. But I will let you in on some of the action.
Our upstairs bathroom has been a little neglected when it comes to home improvements, other than the detoxifying we did in there when we first moved in. But this is our only bathroom on the second floor, and it’s extremely small considering we have two daughters that will eventually need to blowdry their hair and exfoliate their faces. The counter space was LACKING. Not to mention FUGLY.
I love taking pictures with a mirror, because I prefer everyone to see me at my worst.
As you can see by our toiletries strewn about, we have an apparent lack of storage as well. The lack of organization makes me cringe and twitch a little.
So anyway, Nick is extending our bathroom vanity on either side, and will be building a butcher block countertop and installing a new sink and faucet in the next week or so. He loves building cabinetry, so this is all right up his alley.
This is where we are so far, just so you can begin to visualize. The doorway is to the left, so we rounded that side off so we won’t gouge ourselves when entering and leaving the bathroom.
And that’s where we stand! Don’t worry, it’ll all be one color when we’re through… and NOT that tragic peach color either. And the countertop will extend over the entire thing! We’ll keep you updated!!!
On a completely unrelated note… Nick came down the stairs this morning, and said …Happy April Fools Day, in a mono-toned voice. I briefly looked up from my computer and said… oh yeah, I’m pregnant. And he said, congrats… did you make coffee yet?
