Picking Up Where We Left Off....

Last year we started a little remodeling project - our upstairs guest bathroom.  Then, I was waist deep in paperwork for the adoption and all my thoughts were elsewhere but into that project, not to mention the finances involved with the adoption halted anything else planned.

Also last year about this time, I used birthday money to purchase the ceramic tile for the bathroom.  Jason did all the trim work in the distressed deep barn red and we painted the walls a color called Molasses.  Isn't that a yummy sounding color?  That's as far as we got.  As a matter of fact, when we had our homestudy for the adoption, it was just stuck in construction mode. 

Here's where we are right now:




Now, it's time to finish it!  I just had a birthday again (the end of August)....and wouldn't you know it......I always end up spending most of my birthday money on things for decorating my home, more so than personal things.  (I did get a new purse and wallet though).  Anyway, I just purchased this shower curtain that comes with rag ties. 


This is my starting point.  I'm not even exactly sure what direction it will take, but my wheels are turning.  I just knew that I needed a little break from using red in my curtains and shower curtains, so this is a change for me.  I've never used this much black in decorating.  I'm looking forward to using the black and tan. 

Oh, and my mom bought me this stool as part of my birthday gift.  It was also inspiration for the black.  



I'll share it with you as  it all unfolds.  I'm excited to be decorating again! 

As always, I'm very appreciative that you stopped by today!  Have a great day!  :)

I've been in a decorating funk so I decided my bathroom was next! Took old glass doors off the shower and put up a neat shower curtain and curtain for my window! So much more to come! Love your pictures!

I really like the color in that bathroom. It sure looks nice against the trim. I love to use black while decorating. My daughters room has a lot of black in it. I can't wait to see what how it unfolds!

I love the color combinations. What brand is Molasses? It looks to be just the right color I am looking for.
