It is a cool and rainey day, so a good day to stay in and "piddle". Finished up a little project for my 1/2 bath, made some homemade pimento cheese, played on the computer and finished some cleaning that I started Friday morning before I decide to go "play" for the rest of the day.
Time for Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/. Thank you Susan for hosting this fun weekly event. First: I want to ask - Do you know how hard it is to photograph a tiny 1/2 bath !?!? As some of you may remember I started on a 1/2 bath project a while back - in August I think. Before:Then I did this:
Since then I spray painted one of the fenials I got at HL on sale and put it in the opposite corner.
I could not find what I wanted to add with the candle holder and wall piece with the keys - Gotta be odd numbers you know. :-) So spray painted an urn that I already had, added a little raindeer moss, a spray painted white pumpkin with an added rubon and Wa La!
I will replace the pumpkin with something in a cranberry or pomagranate color after Thansgiving.
I found the rug at TJ Max yesterday, but may take it back. I like the rug - it is a cream colored, with a black and tan design on it, but not sure it is big enough.
Sorry for the blurred picture, but this is the picture I pulled the pomegranate color from.
While at TJ Max, I looked for a couple of prettier hand towels and black and white soap dispenser, but they did not have what I wanted. Will check around at other places when get a chance. Other than that -
I am calling this project done!!! I had hoped to get the flooring replaced before the Holidays, but not sure that will happen. A friend just got an estimate to have her 1/2 bath flooring replaced (same size as mine), and it seems that the better known places have what they call a set "small project" fee. In other words: They may only charge so much per square foot labor, but they also have a minimum labor charge - They are gonna get you one way or the other!!! Got to re-think the situation.
This is my contribution to Met. Monday. If you have not already, go over to visit Susan to see what she and the other participants have to share.
Have a great week.
