HOO-BOY! START OF A NEW PROJECT...

The last time we started a bathroom remodel it took 6 months.  So can you sense my enthusiasm?

We decided to update our master bathroom, but not do any new tile or really big things this time...just paint the walls and all the woodwork.  So hopefully it won't take us too long!  We got a good start this weekend texturing over the existing wall paper.  It already looks much better to me!

 We put up this wallpaper when we moved here in 2000 - there was navy striped wallpaper in here and I wanted to lighten it up.  I liked the gold swirly in the pattern.  Now I'm ready for neutrals.
The gold oval mirror originally came from the powder bathroom near the kitchen.  I just couldn't give it up so I moved it to the master bath just for decoration.  Not sure what I'll do with it now!  I only have the plants in here half the year - the rest of the time they are on the patio.





We put joint compound (mud) over the wallpaper to cover it and add texture to the walls.  So clean and fresh looking!  Exciting!

Someday in my bathroom I'm going to have a nice soaking tub!! At least that's my goal.

Paint the mirror with chalk paint and use it as a chalk board.

How exciting! Can't wait to see the redo when it's all done! Great idea for the chalkboard mirror!
