Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Hello my friends hope everyone is having a good start to the weekend. I finished my guest bathroom and wanted to share with all of you what a simple change can do for a small bathroom. All I did was take the border, down put a fresh coat of paint on the walls, and hang all the mirrors and pictures I had laying around that I have not used. I love the way it turned out.. OH, and I did paint the cabinet light grey and found some inexpensive peel and stick tile that I got at the Home depot for  $25.00 on clearance... Seriously I can't believe what a difference small changes can make.... If you look in the mirror you can see the border. The paint went form cream to white. I took the towel bar down and placed it behind the door. This whole project cost around $35.00 dollars.I am joining Kathleen @Faded Charm for White Wednesday. Please go visit her blog and join in.

Hope you all like it as much as I do, Have a great weekend

Junk Trip...

Hello my friends and happy Thursday wanted to share with you some things I found while out with my new BFF Krista and our girls Saturday, We had planned to get out by 7:30 go to all the local garage sales and score some great deals.....Well after three hours of going in and out of subdivisions we came out empty handed... Bummer.... So we desisted to seek out some junk stores and lo and behold I found some cool stuff, Not sure what I'm going to do with them but you all will be the first to know....

I am loving the iron urns and the old tool box, And the old windows I have an idea for those that you will see later this month .... I have a day off today witch is very unusual So I am taking advantage of it. Have a great day what ever you might be doing....

Kitchen Painted.....

So as promised... The kitchen cabinets are done... I could say I am NEVER painting another one as long as I live.... But we all know that's not true... I am wanting to get new counter tops and replace the appliances , I have been looking and I have desisted that I will stick with white, Because I think it will be to much grey... So with that said I hope you love it as much as I do... 


And After......

I can't believe what a difference inexpensive paint can do... Hope you all have a wonderful day....Next up what I have been doing outside....
