{our home} gallery walled

I’ve been talking about doing a home tour here on the blog, and today I was inspired by Sarah over at Thrifty Decor Chick to share our bathroom.

Our little, tiny powder bath.

We painted and put a new vanity and light in there over a year ago.

It was improved, but boring.

If you’ve been to our home, chances are you’ve been stuck in the powder bath lately (up until last week, the pocket door would stick…bad).

The good news is there is lots for you to look at if you do get stuck in there.

After the holidays, I finally got around to hanging artwork and photographs up on our walls (it only took 4 years).

This spring, I started to find some fun items while thrifting.

Along with some original artwork from family, some photographs, the kids hand and foot prints, my old teddy bear, a chalkboard from The Farm Chicks Show, and a few frames filled with cork the walls of this small room filled up quickly.

There are still a few frames to fill , but I love this room.

After we installed the new vanity, I was bothered by the fact that the wall around the vanity needed to be repaired, the flooring needed to be replaced, and we were missing some trim. You can see it all in the photo below…

In hindsight, I would have left the old vanity and just painted it.

The artwork, paint, new faucet, and lighting add what I was really looking for in this room.

home is…something to look at.

on a lighter note

Yesterday’s post was hard for me. I got butterflies in my belly when I posted it. And, believe it or not, I am still scared that some of those “mean girls” from high school will read it and post mean comments on my blog. I am also worried what you all would think of me if you read them! Seriously?! Ugh!

The good news is that this is MY blog, so I can write what I want and delete “mean girl” comments if I wish.

Moving on.

So, on a lighter note…no pun intended…

I think new lighting can make a big difference in a room.

Our master bedroom is in need of a makeover.  Seriously people, we sleep in what we call the “duck blind”.  I have no idea what the people who lived here before us were trying to do with this wall finish, but it is horrendous. Of course, the only rooms we have painted in the whole house in the almost three years we have lived here are the kids rooms, but I digress.

I would love to add this to the ceiling…

What do you think?  Do you think lighting can make a big impact in a room?

home is…moving on.
