I have been overwhelmed lately-my excuse for not blogging. My mother passed away June 26 and I have been literally reeling with things to get done. Things have slowed down a bit so.....on to the bathroom!

                                                                     Painted door

                                                                    old lights

                                                             painted vanity

                                                                vanity hardware

                                                       My oh my...the ceiling!


                                                                        old closet doors

                                                          Cabinet doors

                                                           Window treatment????

                                                              Wall treatment?????  oh, boy!


                                                        shower doors


                                                                    lovely light fixture from the 70's!

Well, again it's been awhile since my last post. My mom got out of the hospital on Monday and on Saturday was back. It's been a roller coaster ride that unfortunately continues on and on. I thought I would post pics from our kitchen redo....

                                                 I peeled off at least 15 layers of old wallpaper...some so old that it had turned brown(it was the paper kind). This is the plaster wall with lots of holes to repair...

Shots of the ceiling...eewww! Past water damage.....
Starting the repair work!

ceiling and lighting done!

ok, so I see it's been a few months since I last posted and didn't load the kitchen pics. My kitchen is now almost complete(except the backsplash) so I will wait and post finished product. My mom has been in the hospital and is still in the hospital for the last 6 weeks-which explains my absence. Please keep her in your prayers as she has a long road yet to travel.

Long time, no see all! It's been awhile since I've blogged! I've been busy with various things but the most pressing right now is my mom. She is in the hospital and I've been dividing my time between there, work and home.....needless to say I'm a little frazzled! Good news though she is getting better and hopefully will be dismissed real soon!
It's pressing on towards Easter and I've not got ANY pics posted....believe me it's on my to do list! Should be within the next few days....stick with me please!

Whew!!! Crazy weather here in the Midwest lately! Last week:sleet and now SNOW! Oh, well another snow day. We went out to build an actual snowman NOT a sleetman. LOL! The boys had a great time and it wasn't too cold either. The snow is melting rather fast so I don't know exactly how long "Bob" (the snowman) will stick around.
Well, I have to tell you all that I absolutley love my kitchen counter tops. My sister is already biting at the bit to come and take a gander in person. I'm hoping to convice her to try it out...or maybe I should do them for her :)
Next project is going to be bead board on the ceiling and my new light fixtures up....gotta get my husband in gear or learn to run a power saw....hmmmm....might be a good idea! Then I'm going to paint the kitchen and move on to the next room. I LOVE doing this kind of thing. Anyway, I'll keep ya posted!
