We are just about finished with the hallway bathroom. I’ll share the final results soon. This bathroom was a light lavender. Soothing…maybe but not quite the look we were going for. Also wasn’t a fan of the light fixture. I can handle the paint, no biggie but switching out the light fixture would have resulted in electric shock. No thanks! Who do you call when you want something jimmy-rigged?!
Dun, dun, dun… Mr. DIY!
As you know, my company was amazingly nice enough to allow me to work from our new location in C’Ville! I’m so glad we found a house with a functional room to allow me to do my job with the same abilities I would have if I was in the office. Thanks technology! I’m going with a neutral color palette throughout the house: cream, tans, grays but I wanted my office to be a space to allow my creativity to flow. So, I veered from my color scheme and choose to go with a refreshing color. I went with Olympic’s ‘Tenderness’.
We are certainly keeping busy with plenty of DIY projects. Greg is building shelves for the laundry room. (Will share an update soon.) His dad and uncle came to visit and in their spare time, built a multifunctional table for the laundry room! Maybe they should come up more often, wink wink. Stay tuned!
The next room on the fix-it list was the adjoining hallway to the laundry room. It was covered with wallpaper that was a bit out of date so I took it upon myself to tackle it. You know the feeling when you start to peel wallpaper and you’re not sure whether it’s going to come down in clean panels or small, annoying pieces? Yeah, me too. Thankfully, the wallpaper came down in clean panels! Cue the church lady dancing!!

We’ve been at the new house for about a month now but with the handy man (Greg) being deployed I’ve been plugging away at working on the works in the house on the weekends. Stay tuned for the big reveal once we’re in a good place! I thought a little preview of the laundry room would hold you over until then.
When we moved in, the laundry room was unpainted yellow drywall and even more unappealing laminate. Eek! I picked up a creamy high gloss, threw a rug on the ground and went to town!
