|Note the amount of crap gathered not only on the window sill, but the toilet tank. Speaking of toilets, I couldn't even close the lid for the picture? Geez. This was one of the last days of mint green. I was done.|
|Not the greatest light balance in this picture, but you get the idea. It looks SO MUCH BETTER.|
|I don't miss anything about this picture. Wait maybe the... nope. Nothing.|
|You can't really tell, but the vanity and the medicine cabinet are espresso, not black. The paint we used is called Studio Taupe by Behr and my sister is obsessed with it. It makes me happy because it reminds me of chocolate milk or Weimaraners.|
|The tub is gone. The one million pound tub is gone. So is that so-stained-not-even-pinterest-can-cure grout. So are the 7 bottles of various shampoo and conditioner with a tiny bit left in each.|
Let's talk about this shower. Do you know how easy it is to wash dogs now? I know that shouldn't be a top priority, but it is. They run, but they can't jump through glass like they could with a shower curtain. You can't get to a corner where that sprayer won't reach either. I have cleaner dogs now. I imagine it would work for crazy toddlers as well ;). That big square rain-like shower head up there is awesome. I wanted one of those, and Don wanted something that had better water pressure. He found this one by Delta, and it is the best of both worlds. If you want a great shower and you're in the neighborhood, come on by... unless you're creepy, then forget it! hehe. You can choose the main shower head, the sprayer, or both. If you have the sprayer on, it's pretty much like a main shower head for short people. The grey tile in the shower matches the grey tile on the floor. I think Don did an excellent job at design... I wonder if it has something to do with being an engineer or if it's contradictory to being an engineer. The things I wonder about.
So that's the bathroom. I like it. Moving on! It's definitely Spring (Other than that random hard freeze a few nights ago) and flowers and trees are beautiful!
|This house has ridiculous curb appeal. It's SO CUTE. It makes my house look like a shack. I'm not sure what that flag is doing there, but unless it's for a good cause, it should probably go because it's messing up the wonderfulness of this porch. ;)|
I made a welcome mat for the front door. Don saw it online and wanted it. I found the blank floor mat at Goodwill for I don't know... let's say 79 cents (when things are 79 cents a pound, it's hard to determine how much they cost without actually weighing them). I made stencils and painted it on. You're welcome husband.
This is the side of my house. We're going to ignore the empty box, and look at what came in the box! See the garden arch? I got it at Aldi for 29.99. I looked at Goodwill and everywhere else for the past year and couldn't find one, and I freaked out when this one popped up in the Aldi ad. Originally I thought I'd have to build one, but this was better. It's gorgeous, and it's only going to be prettier when it's covered in moon flower vines. It's about a foot in the neighbor's yard, but he didn't care. He never comes over to this side of his house and I mow that strip of grass for him in the summer anyway. Deal.
So overall, I'm very happy with the house right now, and I know that it's only going to get better as things start growing and I get the flower box and garden in. Sigh. I've missed you warm weather! Monkey feels the same way.
