Before and After

This is the sad state of my kitchen tonight. 

I have all of the Christmas decorations down, just not put away.

 They are scattered all over my kitchen rendering it useless for all practical purposes.

There is one area of the house looking better these days.  We've finished the never ending bathroom project.  Here are the befores and afters to compare our handiwork.

We replaced the vanity and added a second sink.  Somehow the makeup table in the old vanity was a total waste of space for me.  You know how prone I am to being made up at any given time!!

We redid the wallpaper border by painting over the flowers and then applying vinyl decals.  The words were a quote from the book "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People".  David and I both read it a few years ago and both really liked the quote then and now.


This was the border before.

This is the border now.

It worked out great with one exception.  THIS is the saying that ended up being right above the shower.  THIS is what I read while showering!!! 

 I guess there's no better place for this, huh?  I laughed the first time I looked up and saw what it said above me as I lathered, rinsed and repeated.

Overall I'm pleased with the results.  Plus, I didn't have to peel wallpaper!!

Nothing else tonight.....
