Happy Holidays everybody...are you all ready for Christmas yet or are you like me and still have a bazillion things left to do?...I still have to wrap EVERYTHING...I haven't baked one single thing yet, nor have I gotten around to setting up my Christmas tablescape or cleaning the house from top to bottom...I guess you will be reading about those endeavors AFTER Christmas...LOL...

Want to know the reason that I haven't gotten any of that stuff done?...well, it's because my husband FINALLY decided it was time to tackle finish our bathroom remodel...remember this GREEN monster?...

Yes I know,  oooooooooooh gross...every square inch of this bathroom was mint green...and NASTY...that's what you get when you buy a 70 year old home that hasn't been updated since the 50's!!!

I started a remodel on this WAAAAAAAY back in July...I ripped out not one but TWO layers of tile flooring and gave the cabinets and woodwork a fresh coat of white can read all about that HERE and HERE...

I have been WAITING ever since for my husband to take out the toilet and sink so we I could finish this project....he waited until two weeks before Christmas to do this...GO FIGURE...anyway we are making some serious flooring has been layed, wallpaper has been hung and board and battan has been installed...Our progress this far...

This bathroom will be finished by Christmas...NOTHING ELSE will be done but by golly this bathroom will be finished!!! LOL...The final reveal coming soon...STAY TUNED!

  1. Sheila, I love makeovers and it it so much fun to see Before & After shots! You're new bathroom is looking great! Love the wall paper!! BTW-Your hubby sounds like mine...timing issues!:)

  2. First, Thanks for the award...I will be sure to pay it forward! And your bathroom is looking fantastical! Love the board and battan treatment! Thanks for linking it up at Hating Martha!

  3. Wow, what a transformation! I am loving that wallpaper and the wainscoting. How fun. It is worth not cooking and wrapping. Buy gift bags this year and get the goodies from some great bakery - you deserve it!

    (By the way, that is a myth that Mrs. Claus is chubby - she works it all off running after the elves and doing all the behind the scenes work - I know, I know her personally!!! Ha ha!)


I LOVE hearing from you...please leave me a comment!
