Cabinet painting... again!

It's so refreshing to have a little peek back at move in condition. Makes me not feel so bad for the 1/2 done makeovers. But can you see the carpet in this pic!? It was by the toilet too, yuck! I'm surprised they didn't roll out carpet in the shower.



Here's the new shower minus the new glass shower door. (Thanks Mariann and Mark for the curtain, rod and shower hooks! They totally surprised me with a happy-new-tile-job-in-the-bathroom gift and I love it.) And the cabinets after my 2 second sanding job.

Justin wanted white, but I just had to do black because... it looks SO GOOD!


So when I'm takin' a shower in here... it's awesome. H-U-G-E! Almost a little too big and dare I say, drafty? But I love it. There is nothing worse than touching the side of a shower while in the process of scrubbing, eww.
And the floor! The tile boy had to cut almost every single piece. I felt so bad for him, but LOVE to outcome. We never would've done the diamond thing on our own.

And now back to the kids bath. I went out and bought hooks, but Justin wouldn't let me hang them directly on the wall, "they're just gonna get ripped off." So he routed a piece of wood, slapped that up there and THEN put the hooks up. I love them! Thanks for the ideas. Still looks a little bare, huh.

Wow! Amazing how much you can get done when the children leave you alone for an hour or two. I love the new bathrooms. It's getting much harder to remember the "old" bathrooms until you put up the before and after. A couple of more projects and you will have your "new" house.... How is it going on the NEW Granite Counter Tops? Is Justin ready for them YET? You'll have to keep looking for another "good deal"!

Love,

MOM

Pick up a canvas at Michaels and let Kennedy do an "original" to stick over the toilet in the kids bathroom....space filled for like 3bucks...

Love the shower curtain! *wink wink* Have you made a decision regarding the wall color? I know you weren't sure if you were happy with it. I love the black cabinets, they really look sharp.

SO AWESOME! I'm going to be painting my cabinets any minute now...I hope they can look as nice as those. I'm also going with black. I want it to look like a stain almost...but darker....thin enough to see the wood grain. I LOVE what you did!

Rhonda said...

OKAY your house looks AMAZING! We really need to get together so that I can meet your kids and see your beautiful house! (I would say meet your husband but... I didn't know if that was like creepy)The families blog that you showed me about adoption is amazing! AND one of my best friends from college told me to look at the same one because she knew them too! SMALL WORLD!!
