Yep, that is correct. I laid the final strip of baseboard, caulked and touch up painted and family will be arriving in one day for Thanksgiving.
Here are bits and pieces and then the reveal.
The wall color second one is Techno Gray. The first gray/grey was way too white and glaring when you walked in. The room needed a touch of color and there is a bit of green in this paint. Which flows with the rest of the house as well.
I custom made the shower curtain. I am a tad bit paticular with shower curtains and I need them floor to ceiling. It takes three shower rods. One for the topper, one for the panels and one for the clear vinyl shower curtiain hidden behind the panels that slides to make the shower functional.
Just adore the new honeycomb white floor. New baseboards helped update the area too.

AFTER - Taken with new camera that was purchased with the money I saved doing it ourselves. And when I say "our"selves, that would be me and baby girl, Lynley. Thanks Lynley!
$50.00 shower curtain fabric
$130.00 tile and stuff to apply
$19.00 clearance Martha Stewart paint
(Home Depot is not going to carry her paint anymore)
200.00 dollar total makeover
But that makes for a bad blogger. Sorry, we have been working on the honey do lists and I discovered Pinterist! We will be having 26 for Thanksgiving dinner. All out of town guests. The family will be dispersed between Coppell, Richardson and McKinney, Texas. Everyone will be here for Thursday dinner. I will try to remember to keep my camera going.
So below, of course, the napkins I will be using and a sneak peek at just one of my projects. I bought the new Wilton Armetale napkin holder with the weight for an outside table.
New shower curtains I made for the updated bathroom. Lynley and I tiled the floor and painted. I put in new baseboards. It is fabulous, I can't wait to show you. With the "labor" costs we saved by DIY, I am going out today for a new camera. Yay us, yay me.
Happy Thanksgiving, I am thankful for family, friends and being busy!
You will be too after seeing what Ann Marie and I got to have fun wondering through and purchasing pretties in last weekend.
Laurie Anna's Vintage in located in Canton, TX. Located off Interstate 20 between Shreveport, LA and Dallas, TX. Home of one of the countries largest flea markets. The market is called First Monday Trade Days. Because it is only open the weekend before the first Monday of every Month. Since the first on November fell on a Tuesday. The market was November 3,4,5 and 6th. And Laurie Anna's shop is not on the flea market grounds anymore, but in her own location. You still have to go during Trade Days. That is the only time she is open too. But get there you must. Next trade days are December 1st - 4th.
Every inch, every table just filled brimming over with lovely white and snow.
Iron, greenery, trees, burlap and tin.
Bed scenes decorated and ready for a cuddly nap.
These marvelous soaps filled the entire space with marvelous scent.
Tablescape after tablescape each as beautiful as the first.
Light fixtures and chandeliers galore.
Just heart warming and packed with shoppers and we were there late in the day. I heard some ladies who had come back, that you couldn't even move around that morning. If you get the chance and are around the Dallas area on the weekend before the first Monday of the month. This is a must see.
