We're looking into getting a round pedestal table such as the one below from Ballard Designs. The small buffet would be moved to the left of the window closest to where it is now, and I'd like to get a taller piece for the other side of that window. I'd also like to put up two large shelves above the buffet for decorative plates or something like that. Ooooh, ooooh and I really want a capiz chandelier to brighten it up, since I think we're going to stick with black furniture in here.
I also almost finished the half bath this weekend. The main stuff has been done for quite some time, but I finally finished most of the decor. I still want something for the wall to the right, and I have two small canvases that I've been meaning to paint, so I might see what I can whip up. Mind you, I am no artist... at all... I mean, truly... no artistic talent outside of doodling.
picking my own.
I apparently do not have a before picture on my work computer (yes, I blog at work... when else would I do it!?) ;) but it was bad. It was the same putrid yellowish, peachy horrible color as the rest of the house but to add insult to injury, it had terrible fixtures and a gold light fixture that looked like it was going to fall off the wall. So, we replaced the ugliness as noted in my previous post and painted. We will likely re-tile at some point in the future, as well. I also didn't do the best job edging around the ceiling (thankfully we have 9 foot ceilings on our first floor and most people aren't in the bathroom to look straight up), so I told Matt he should install some crown molding. I'm not sure I've ever seen a powder bath with crown molding. It's my solution to all wall to ceiling oopsies.
And, one last picture, because what the hey. This is the gorgeous amaryllis our amazing realtor, Mary Stuart got us for Christmas. It is unbelievable!
Oh geez, and because this post isn't long enough already, I almost forgot! The stairs look SO MUCH BETTER. Not close to perfect, but as close as they're going to get, and I really don't think anyone will even notice now (shoot, they probably didn't before until I pointed out what a bad job
