The BLUE bathroom!

Since there were already holes in the ceiling from the complete rewire- We thought, why not just make a few more and update the plumbing!

All the plumbing had previously been updated except for the upstairs bathroom that we lovingly refer to as the blue bathroom. This is because-well- EVERYTHING IS BLUE! The tile on the walls, the tile on the floor, the sink, tub and yes, the toilet! But as of today, have new plumbing and a new toilet! We are having the tub refinished and it will be shiny, new and WHITE! I have a few tricks up my sleeve and will post pictures promptly once it is completed ;)

David and I went to home depot to pick out a WHITE toilet. Who knew there where so many different toilets to choose from?!? David picked the one with a rating of 10 out of 10 for BEST flush performance. This just made me laugh! Wow, If only I knew how happy this would make him, Christmas could have been a lot easier!

Now we are just shopping for a new counter top and sink!

The house has a ways to go, but so far it is coming along nicely!

Guest room #1:

Guest room #2:

Dinning room:

Living room:

Master bedroom and future closet:
pre polyurethane

not sure if you can tell in the photo, but there is the random little nook that is not really big enough for much of anything- but it will make a GREAT closet! Hopefully I can snag a couple of old doors to put up here. I am really excited about this. I love old homes, but also love having a closet!
At the other end of the room, there is a window in the small nook from the dormer. There is a lot of great natural light that fills the room!

I am missing pictures of the third guest room-which according to David will be his work out room!

I was watching an HGTV show the other day where the girl said "I love brand name toilets" and she was so serious. I've never, ever paid that much attention to toilets! It looks like you got a good one though!

Wow, you really do have a gorgeous home there. I can't wait to see it all filled up with your treasures.
And good score on the toilet, too! ;-)
So nice to meet you!

My husband and I have redone so much of our home, and you know what? We never remembered to get before pictures! The bed in your guest room (I don't have a quest room) is nice!

Thanks guys! This has been such a learning experience, but a fun one as well!

Decorating is one of my loves...I am just itching to get in there and put my touch on it! It is really a blank slate now and I look forward to really making it OURS!

The bed was actually the previous home owners and I LOVED it so much I purchased it from her! I can't wait to dress it up with cozy bedding!
