When we originally bought our house we thought we would only be here a couple of years and then move on. Well, six years and a bad economy later, we are still here. We really wanted to be out of our house before Reese started kindergarten to be in a better school district but that is not going to happen. So we will make the best of it for now.
Our goal for this year is to do a ton of home improvement so that hopefully we will be able to sell this house sooner rather than later. We started that excitement on New Years Day. Thanks to Pinterest we had our first project and were off to Home Depot for the supplies.
In our bathrooms we just had the basic builders mirrors and we wanted to dress them up a bit.
We started with the half bath down stairs since it is smaller…less area to mess up. After we knew what we were doing (sort of) we moved on to our master bathroom.
After getting it all cut and glued, we put some tape on it to make sure it stayed in place while it dried.
Finally the next day we were able to take the tape off and see what it looks like. Apparently I didn’t take a picture post tape in the half bath. I love how they turned out.
I still need to caulk the corners and then I am going to paint them (this will be a nap time job). I think I am going to paint the downstairs one a dark color but haven’t decided on the master frame. I kind of like it white because I feel like it makes the bathroom lighter.
Now we just need to replace those ugly lights…and about a million other things in our house. Ha! We are off to a good start though and it was a fun project.
