Bathroom Weekend and Mini Rant

With all of the spare time we have we like to fill it with home improvements, this weekend it was filled with bathroom home improvements.  Honestly, we were able to go shopping for the bathroom and get it painted - pretty good considering everything else going on.  So here is a little round-up of some of the things you will be able to find in our bathroom pretty soon.

Just a quick glimpse of what state our main bathroom is in now (looking very beigeriffic, yes that's a word) ...

A soothing green/gray paint is now on our walls, we chose Misty Lake in Olympic Premium no VOC.  I remember this weekend how much I hate painting bathrooms.  In general, I love to paint, I've enjoyed almost every part of our house painting so far (with the exception of knotty pine).  Leading up to painting this bathroom I tried to convince myself it wouldn't be that bad but I was just fooling myself.  The room is not large, that's not the issue - it's the little nooks and crannies, corners and edges that hide and reveal themselves while you're painting.  I really think I deserve a medal for the acrobatics and contortions I performed while getting this room painted.  Craziness.  But, it's now finished and looks wonderful so I will live.  Only one more bathroom to go. Ok, finished with my rant now, you can put away your small violins.

We are going with a brushed nickel finish for all of our hardware and such like this hand towel ring (not the exact one we bought but very close).

We have a leaky shower head so we will be replacing it with this Moen Nurture 3 cycle one.  It's supposed to use less water and not sacrifice on water pressure - we will see.

We scored with our faucet purchase with this delta faucet - on sale at Lowes!  It was actually our favorite so we were pumped.

We still have dreams of installing a new granite tile floor and purchasing a new sink/cabinet.  The little finishes we purchased over the weekend will work wonders for now.  Stay tuned for more bathroom updates this week and also a few other updates that we were able to squeeze in.  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Megan,

    You might have some luck on a new sink at the Habitat ReUse store. Sometimes you can find some great tile there as well.

    Love reading about your home remodel! :)


  2. Thank you for the suggestion Cyndee! I just found out about the Habitat Reuse store a few weeks ago from someone so I really want to go check it out.
