I have a short and sweet update for y’all today. I had planned to just work on windows this weekend and get the four windows trimmed out in the bathroom and home gym. But once I got the window trimmed out in the bathroom, I was so anxious to install the sconces on that wall to see what they were going to look like against the Modern Masters Venetian Plaster wall finish.
First, here’s a look at the one window in the bathroom. Here’s how it looked on Friday…
And here’s the window all trimmed out…
I still need to do all of the finishing (wood filling, sanding, caulking, priming, and painting), but it always amazes me the huge difference it makes once trim goes onto doors and windows.
The way I trim out my doors and windows makes a really big impact on the rooms in my home, but it’s so incredibly simple. If you have a miter saw (actually, just a chop saw will do) and a tape measure, you can do this because it requires no miter cuts!! They’re all just quick and easy straight cuts.
You can find the tutorial here: How I Trim My Windows And Doors (Easy DIY Window Casings With No Miter Cuts!)
Once I got the trim installed, I had to keep going on this wall and install the sconces. These things have been sitting around my house in boxes for a few months now, getting shifted from room to room, so I was so anxious to get them out of the boxes and up onto the wall. Here’s how they look installed. Unfortunately, I didn’t have light bulbs for them, so you’ll just have to use your imagination on that part. 😀
These are the Tracie Curved Arm Classic Sconce from Shades of Light, and they’re only $76 each! Since I needed four sconces, I wanted something that looked great without breaking the bank, and these fit the bill perfectly.
And once those were up, I was curious to see what the mirrors would look like on the wall as well. 😀 I know I jumped the gun on these things, but if you’ve been around here long enough, you know that I almost never do things in an order that makes sense. I’m always so anxious to get to the pretty and decorative stuff. And it all works out in the end, so I just go with it.
If you followed my Instagram stories over the weekend, you know I had this mirror propped up on the ladder, and I said I wasn’t going to actually hang it on the wall.
Well, I actually hung it on the wall. 😀 Y’all! I just couldn’t help myself! I lost all self-control. I’ll take it down, and remove the glass shades from the sconces when it’s time to install crown molding on that wall, but in the meantime, here’s a peek at the sconces, mirror (just one for now), and trimmed out window all together. And I just love the reflection of the wall mural in the mirror.
The mirror is the Marco Moroccan Gold Arch mirror from West Mirrors. This one is the medium size. I probably could have fit the large size in these spaces, but the large would have been taller than the window trim, and in my mind, the window trim needs to be the tallest thing on that wall. Don’t ask me to explain why, but that’s just what seems right in my mind. 😀
So yes, I got a bit ahead of myself with this, but that’s okay. 🙂 Allowing myself to do things out of order, and get to projects that help me see clearer what the finished project will look like, helps to keep me motivated to keep on going. I’m so excited about how this will turn out!
