It's a fact, we are on our way. To where? To turning this house into our home. Hubby helped me put the finishing touches on the downstairs powder room last night. What began as a simple, 'Hey - let's paint the bathroom.' Turned into a redo of all other than the vanity and throne.
We pulled out the mirror that covered the entire wall.
And replaced it with a vintage mirror that came from my mom's home. Also installed a new light fixture - something a little plainer than the fixtures throughout the house.
The new mirror left room to hang other things on that wall.
A stitchery from one of Cheri Payne's books. On the adjacent wall, we hung a flower press. the counter top has a few knickknacks gathered from all around the house. Before we knew it, there was a definite birds-and-bees-theme happening.
This little birdhouse found a new home.
It fits in perfectly and makes good use of the hook in the ceiling. I have already tried a plant there, but the lack of sun makes it a pretty hostile environment.
I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It inspired me to continue. Next up the 'laundry hall' and the quilting space.
In other decorating news, I came up with a topper for the butter churn.
Not sure this is the final, permanent solution. For now it works just dandy. The bonus: the tray was right here in the house. Love when that happens . . . and Hubby LOVES it more!
Over the weekend, I got the last stitches in the binding of the June Lake Camp Quilt. Yesterday it received a coffee bath and dried in the sun.
I love how the coffee takes the harshness out of the white and took down the brilliance of a couple of the pinks. Now it looks like one of my quilts. Those are my favorite kind.
