Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Powder Rooms and Bathrooms!

Some of these are just so pretty, they make me want to totally redo mine -- and the bath upstairs isn't even finished yet from the last (long-time coming -- started in November, 2009) redo.  Enjoy along with me:

So pretty from Free Stylin':

A Stenciled Bathroom (How to Stencil)

Love the pattern and the color, but I would never have the patience to do this.  Kudos to Beth for hers!  The room was utterly transformed.

Debbie-Dabble's blog never fails to inspire me.  Check out her bathroom transformation using, among other things, double wallpaper borders!  She's a brave woman, flying in the face of convention that currently calls borders a faux pas.  Fie to you, Debbie says!  She does what makes her happy and it works every time.

I Now Have a Pretty Bathroom!
August 16, 2012

Photo from Debbie-Dabble's blog.
Debbie added a border to both underneath an existing wallpaper border on the lowers walls as well as to the ceiling ("above" the existing wallpaper border) that coordinates beautifully not only with the existing border but also with the material she used to make a valance to add to the shower rod.  She edged the valance in lace and added silk flower arrangements and Home Interiors sconces to the one "free" wall in the bathroom (behind the door) in addition to framed prints. 

Looking at one of Debbie's rooms is like being in another always peaceful, beautiful world...

At Hydrangea Love, I haven't even seen the entirely redone bathroom yet and I'm already loving it, just on the basis of the light fixtures, the wall color, and the shower curtain!

I've no clear idea of how, exactly, Kirstie did this, but she combined an already-owned "crystal" candle-holder with a light fixture kit she purchased at Home Depot and somehow ended up with this:

...which she installed herself after removing the old and tres uglee fluorescent light fixture herelf.  Yeah, she does wiring!
