Bathroom Redo!

Over the weekend, our bathroom went from this...



To this....









I guess a few of the "don't do this while pregnant rules" were broken because I did use a ladder and painted the room myself. Various family members lectured me, but I just really wanted to get this room put together! I survived, and I'm pretty sure the baby is OK too!

So you've likely noticed that there are still a few things needing to be done in this room. 
-trim needs to be installed
-a door would likely offer a little more privacy than the blanket that's hanging there now
-the tub will be replaced (someday)
-there's a serious shortage of storage
-some artwork/decor on the walls would be nice, too

And, I suppose I should have run an iron over my shower curtain before hanging it.  I hate ironing. You should see my husband's shirts! 

But, we did get the wall patched where we removed a window (I posted about this HERE), the walls repainted with SW Realist Beige, and the ceiling renewed with a coat of SW Crystal Clear. We also installed the new light fixture, and I finally got my shower curtain hung up!

Are you curious to see what this room looked like when we bought the house? It was covered with peel and stick tiles. Ceiling. Floor. Walls. Do you know how fun those are to remove? Not very.





I should mention that my mom has been here all week helping us get things ready for the baby who is due in less than two weeks! Over the next few days, I'll share some of the fun we've been having along with the other progress that went on this past weekend.
