~ BIG BATHROOM REVEAL ~

Good Evening Ladies! Well, it has come to the evening of my BIG BATHROOM REVEAL. I must say that I am quite happy with the choices that I picked out and I am VERY pleased with the way it turned out. It turned out beautifully and prim which is what I was aiming for especially after the purple bathroom. If you don't remember what the purple bathroom looked like then be sure to check out my previous posts for a picture. Trust me - it is definitely a HUGE improvement. My husband told me that he thought it looked too nice to use and well I agreed. I told him it was just for show (lol). Well, if you are all ready then I will show you the first picture. Keep in mind that I still need to add my frame around my mirror and I am thinking I need some greenery on top of my cupboard so that isn't complete either, but here goes nothing.

I fell in love with the shower curtain as soon as I saw it. They just came in and they didn't even have one hanging up yet so I was one of the first to get one. I loved it and thought it looked great with my Bark Gray paint.
I was able to get my paper mache boxes painted and completed and put on top of my cupboard. I was quite happy with the way that they turned out. Just perfect for that spot on top of my cupboard.
Here is my sink top. My husband asked if we were going to be able to use the towel and of course I must have gave him "a look" and as soon as I gave him "that look" he knew it was just for decoration. At least he asked before using it - right?
Here is my lovely powder room sign that Kath made for me. She is such a sweetheart and of course the sign looks PERFECT in my new prim bathroom. Thank you again Kath for your kindness. It is greatly appreciated.
A closer look at my new and improved bathroom cabinets. After I re-did them, I wasn't too sure that I would like them, but now that the bathroom is prim and complete.... they look beautifully and I am of course very pleased with what I did. Thank you ladies for keeping me positive and looking ahead at things. Of course after I painted, added my prim pretties and added my special touch, I am very happy and thrilled by my cabinets. My kitchen cabinets are next!!

One of my favorite sayings is KEEP THE FAITH in everything you do. This weekend I found this little sign that says Have Faith and of course I had to have it. As I was going through infertility treatments, I kept telling myself to KEEP THE FAITH and well the little sign just means so much to me. It is what I am all about..... FAITH.

I think adding a little greenery will be perfect for this area. Don't you just love my boxes that I finished? Shawn's dear cousin Stacey gave me the bowl and I love it. It looks prim perfect in my bathroom.
Here are my jars that I added labels to. I filled them with cotton balls, q-tips and make-up sponges. Of course they are just for decoration (lol). If you open the jars then you get a big whiff of pickles so I would say definitely don't use those items (lol). The candles that you see here are made by Carolee. I thought they looked perfect in this little area.
So, now that you have seen the BIG REVEAL - Was it worth the wait? Did I do a nice job? Am I tired and worn out - most definitely yes, but I am absolutely thrilled and so happy with the results!!

My favorite is the cabinet
above the toliet.
I can see you put lot of
time and work in the redo
of your bathroom.
I do not decorate in prims
but I do like looking at
the pictures.
I do county and traditional
with a little bit of
formal fancy thrown in.

Hi Lisa....I have been reading your blog for quite some time now and I just had to drop by tonight to check out your bathroom. It is absolutely terrific! First of all, you did a marvelous job with the sink cabinet. I know how hard you worked on that. Everything is so nice right down to every last detail...such as the "have faith". I think you deserve a big pat on the back! This room is great!

Lisa, I'm just catching up on my blog reading from last week. I LOVE your bathroom, you did a fabulous job - when are you coming over to my neck of the woods to do mine! On another note, my BIL & SIL live in Millersburg and I've been to several of the stores you visited in Berlin/Walnut Creek - wish they weren't 4 hours from my house. Glad you had a good time. ~Ann
