Monday Morning Musings

Monday, October 31, 2011

I think it's become an annual tradition now--the upcoming holidays gets me in the mood to tackle some DIY projects around the house.

I am going to have lots to show you in the coming weeks once again. I've already shared my kitchen, dining room, and living room vintage/thrift shop chic makeovers over the past couple years.  I've headed upstairs and we are in the process of transforming the bathroom at the top of the stairs to take it out of the dreadful 50s salmon tiles, am making some minor cosmetic changes to our bedroom, and just painted the boys' bedroom yesterday.

I thought I'd share a bit and stay tuned for before and afters as the projects are finished. My goal is to have the bathroom all done by Thanksgiving. We are re-tiling and getting a new sink and toilet and this is DIY, so this may change!

 Our Room:

I bought this Country Living quilt & sham set last week at Sears. It was on clearance for $22.99 for the queen!



BOYS' ROOM

The boys also have new bedding. These complete bed sets were on the end clearance at Target for $14.98 each:



Safer paint options from Benajmin Moore. Here is the shade I painted yesterday:

 Bluefish from Benjamin Moore


BATHROOM


I think this is the ceramic tile I'll be using. Love this!


STAY TUNED!
