DRESSER RE-DO UPDATE


As we near the end of this part of our reno journey it is so hard for me to believe 
*this much time has passed
*this much has been taken apart and put back together
*I am still in a good mood

this is not the beginning...it is the middle
if I remember correctly---this summer I was thrilled to be here

because...this was the beginning
don't you really like that color of green though?  I sure did!

 Disaster!
here we go!

MY VISION
some random page I tore from a magazine that I can't properly credit 
because I can't remember where I got it

I remember this wonderful little thing sitting in my garage for what seemed like
E.V.E.R.
I had to talk Mr. P.V. into it for our vanity
I used the "it's free" tactic which seems to work when you near the end

you can visit here to see how this started

and here we are today

let's just sigh a little shall we?
Grand le Sigh

our 3rd set of sinks
they were going to be the last even if they looked bad
(that choice was a lot harder than I expected)


The mirror is from Hobby Lobby and lighted from behind with rope light
(um...this year's Christmas lights -- I was in a hurry because 15th Anniversary is
MIRROR
nice surprise right?)

Some dear blog friend suggested I was a soap Ninja
I concur

Man I love this shade of blue
HEAVENLY 
"Sea Salt"


Remember when we went to buy our bed and bought this mirror instead?
It reminds me of when I went to buy a hat for the Kentucky Derby and bought a birdfeeder

but we did get our bed finally
and I'm telling you what...it feels nice!

these past 3 days I just lay there and look up at our view 

and over at the view

and think to myself

now that wasn't so bad at all!

I think renovating is like childbirth - once it's over, you forget the pain because of the joy from the results.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the dresser/vanity - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the mirror with the rope lighting - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sinks (3rd and final option!!).

Too gorgeous!
