{Evie's Bathroom}: THE REVEAL!

Today is an exciting day because I can finally say we are done with Evie's bathroom!  If you are just joining me, you can see the bathroom progress HERE.  

We had to completely gut this bathroom and start from scratch.  Nothing was worth saving.  It was a very small space but a huge project!  Everything from plumbing to electrical to drywall had to be done.  Luckily, we saved so much money by doing the work on our own.  I can't wait to total up the receipts and see if we stayed under budget.  Regardless if we went a little over, it is definitely thousands of dollars cheaper than our lowest contractor bid-- and that feels amazing!!

I have major design commitment issues so it takes me a while to make up my mind on most days.  I always fear that I will get tired of something after about a year of seeing it every day.  However, the moment I laid eyes on this wallpaper, I knew it was perfect for this bathroom!  

Let's refresh your memory with a before picture of the bathroom.  Gorgeous, right? 


We are so proud of the finished result!  It's been a long summer renovating this home but a fun journey, for sure.  We have 4 more rooms left to renovate and the entire exterior... Say some prayers for us!  Shout out to my sweet husband for making all of my crazy design ideas come to life!

Decorating Pumpkins.

Hi all! I hope you have been enjoying the beginning of fall as much as we have! We have been busy baking pumpkin cookies, watching Hocus Pocus, visiting pumpkin patches and decorating pumpkins!  We haven't been working on the house as much as we should be, but we are enjoying every single bit of my favorite season...(outdoors)

My siblings and I had a family pumpkin decorating day last weekend.  It was our first cool front of the fall and the weather was absolutely perfect!  Evie found a couple of kits at Target that didn't require any carving (thank God!)  They were so cute and easy enough for her to do them on her own.  

My sweet sister and brother!

So proud of her black cat and witch!

My little family.


House Update--
We are still living in a construction zone- Our kitchen, laundry, master bed and bath are still under construction.  Evie's bathroom took forever to complete because the counter top company installed her marble with huge scratches all over.  The guys came back and ripped it out leaving the sheet rock damaged.  Dustin had to completely repair the sheet rock and re-paint the walls so they could install another piece of marble. Fun times!  I promise I will get around to posting Evie's bathroom pictures soon! 

Happy October, friends!
