New Bathroom

DSC_2907While cleaning the main floor bathroom I notice that the mirror had lost part of it’s mirror-i-ness due to cleaning for the last 20 years. After many years of watching HGTV, I consider myself a bit of a remodeling expert (insert sarcasm here). Everyone on pinterest is doing it, right? So I took that mirror down to see how much damage was done to the wall behind it. Lucky me, no damage. I set it in the hall so that I could go get a new mirror. Dan was afraid it would break in the hall so he moved it… and broke it. So lucky me, there was no going back it was a new mirror. I bought a new mirror, brought it home, hated it, so I decided the counter-top had to go. I think you can see where this is headed. When all was said and done, bringing down that mirror resulted in a whole new bathroom. Let me tell you $84 for the Costco toilet was the best money I have EVER spent. 2 trips to the store for a light, 2 trips for mirrors, paint, toilet, faucet and of course a new granite counter-top and sink and the room is now my favorite 15 square feet in the house. Thanks to my fabulous husband and his new found remodeling skills, he is the best. Too small of a space to get a great picture, I still need to touch up the paint on the walls where the sink banged it up going in and put one more coat of paint on the cabinet.


MoTab and June Storm

Had a great evening as a family watching/listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Watched a massive lightning storm all across the sky on the drive home. Bracing for a 180 mile long storm system with 80 mph winds, expected to hit in about two hours. We may not get much sleep…
