You know how yesterday I said I was going to spend one more day working on my room, and then show you the progress? Well, I didn’t lie to you, but I did get sidetracked. It’s just something I do…often.
You see, in order to work on my bedroom, I really needed to go to John & Alice’s house to pick up a couple of tools. But once I got there, I decided to inspect the newly-painted cabinets that I finished up on Friday. Then I decided to go ahead and attach the rest of the drawer and door pulls. Then I decided that I really was in the mood to use my tile saw, and wanted to get the rest of the tiles installed on the backsplash.
You get the picture.
So after leaving before noon to just pick up a couple of tools, I ended up getting back home after 5:30. But I did snap a few pictures before I left so that you could see the progress. The “big picture” is really starting to come together.
First, here’s a peek at the “before” of the left side of the vanity area…
|The “before” vanity area, with white cabinets, brass knobs,
cultured marble countertop and backsplash, and massive mirror.
Of course, you can see the wallpaper reflected in the mirror.
And here’s the current state of the vanity. It’s not finished, but it’s much improved.
|The cabinets are now an earthy green, the brass hardware has been exchanged
for drawer and door pulls straight from nature. The cultured marble countertop
is still there, but a new backsplash freshens up the look. And of course, the wallpaper
was replaced with a hand-troweled wall treatment.
|The tile still needs to be grouted, and the faucet needs to be updated, but it’s getting there!|
You can move your pointer back and forth over the picture below to see the “before” vanity and the current vanity area.
So, since the rest of my week is shaping up to be pretty busy, I guess my bedroom will have to wait until next weekend. But that’s okay, right? That just means I’ll have even more progress to show you next Monday!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
