Where have I been?

Well, it has been a busy couple of weeks. We had loads and loads and loads of snow, topped off by three feet by Christmas morning at my Mom's house just outside of Seattle!

We had a lot of christmas fun, full of lovely decor. My Mom's tree is always my favorite...

But, we didn't do too bad ourselves decorating our little living room.

I was so sad to take it all down, but by New Year's Eve, it had to be done! We had a great time ringing in the new year at a local pub with friends...

And to top it all off, we've almost finished our bathroom...we spent the first couple of days of the year painting and painting...

First, we had to scrape off some of the old flakey paint. Can you believe the colors that have been used over the past 80 years?

Well, we took care of that with a nice clean coat of silver grey paint. I love it!

We have a nice new shower head, and it is at the proper height!

The grey looks so great against the white trim, sink and toilet!

Now, the finishing touches. We have a new fan/light combo which is functional and great

And our gorgeous light fixture will go up here, above the medicine cabinet next week!

As soon as the light is up, I'll post more pictures. Now, on to the dilemma of staying with a neutral grey, white and black palette or going for a pop of color. We still need a shower curtain and perhaps some art above the toilet. There are so many options, I just can't decide!

Thanks! We're so excited for it to be done. The light goes in soon and is going to make a beautiful finishing touch. I can't wait.

Heather, the paint is "Splinter of Silver 141-3" by Mythic Paint. I really love the line...it is a bit harder to apply (I think, I can't tell if it is the paint or our crazy plaster walls) but i love that it is NO VOC and has no scent at all. Makes it much more livable when you are in the middle of a home makeover and have to live through the painting!
