Bath Crashers - Ross Style!

We are FINALLY finished with the guest bathroom!!!

So I get to link up to Tara's Made-It Monday - yay!


Well, not really TOTALLY finished, but enough to show you.

I still have some decorations I want to get/make...but it takes time...

So, to start with, let me show you what it WAS...

And what was wrong with it....aside from the color scheme, which was NOT working in this bathroom...

Now mind you, the unfinished painted walls have been like that for OVER A YEAR!! lol

We ran out of paint, and I guess I just didn't like it enough to go get more...lol



So...we started painting...

Let the record show, that I DID paint, but then hubs came home and he didn't approve of my painting job, so he took over...lol


...took down the huge mirror and ugly shell lights...which left holes in the wall...



...put up wainscot and chair rail...



and VOILA!

So the new color scheme is gray walls with white chair rail and wainscot and yellow and white accents.

I LOVE it!!!





yay!! it's finished!!!
(Tara, I hope you don't mind me posting my Made-It Monday on a Thursday...I will link up next week to it!)

now....onto the "cabana" bathroom...lol...well, it WOULD be a cabana bath...if we had a pool.

But we don't.

YET!

So, I guess...it's just a 1/2 bath for right now..lol

OOH....

ORRRRRR we could do the girls' room - oh the wheels are turning, my friends.

And I want to leave you with THIS beautiful picture...

after THREE full days of rain, the sun FINALLY came out around dinner time and the blue skies were above us!!!

LOOK!!

Photo: Do you see that?? Y THAT is a shadow from the SUN on my bike ride :) http://instagr.am/p/MZVNwsOxSy/

THAT, my friends, is a shadow, that was cast by, none other than THE SUN!!!

It was a BEAUTIFUL bike ride....to Publix....to get my ice cream.
And cereal for breakfast.

What?

We all have priorities, right??

And they fit nicely in my little basket.

haha!!!

and one last thing....

I finally finished my sports A.R. pack - so it's up and ready for y'all!

Hi Jen:
That bathroom looks FABULOUS!
Loved the shadow picture... After five rainy days on my vacation, sunshine was almost as good as ice cream!
