The upstairs bathroom was something I wanted to tackle right away; it was an "English Pea Green" color, and let's be honest, does ANYBODY actually like English Peas?
So here's a Before:
The color still doesn't really show up in the picture, but it's a soft grey. I love it and LOVE all the colors in the shower curtain! One room down......all the others to go! HA!
While I did the bathroom, J started on a much bigger project that took more than a weekend! He wanted a media unit that would
hide hold all of our electronics and also give us some more storage. So after MUCH planning, calculating, drawing, and a few trips to Lowe's, the carpenter went to work.
We started out with this: (obviously the TV, stand and side table were on the wall to the right, I just forgot to take a "Before" picture)
And our house was full of this:
And the final product looks like this:
We are waiting for some cushions to be sewn that will go on top of the benches on each side.....but hey, we've come a long way, baby. There are no words for how PROUD of my hubby I am!!! I knew that he had skills, but honestly, he completely impressed me with this. He worked so hard; the only thing I had to offer were my painting skills. The best thing.....there is not a cord in sight! LOVE it!
And here are some extra pics of the living room for those of you requesting pics. There is still a lot of decorating I want to do.......but it's HOME. : )
