    Master Bathroom Progress

    Happy Tuesday friends! Posting a little later than normal for me because…well, summer. Can I get an amen for sleeping in?? (If you have little that still get up at the crack of dawn…I’m sorry, this too won’t last forever.) I shared a couple of weeks ago my new faux roman shade for our master bath. That project spurred me to finish up this part of our master bath. If you’re new here, you may not know our master bath situation. You can see it here in our master bedroom – yes, yes, that’s right we have what I refer to as a hotel bathroom. Part completely open to the bedroom, part not. The part I’m working on is the tinniest little (smaller than our closet) room that houses our shower and toilet.

    DIY Faux Roman Shade

    Hey there friends! Are you surviving May and all that comes with the school year ending?? Today is our kiddos last. day. of. school!! Surprised that I’m excited?? Allow me to explain – I get to sleep in. Yep, one of the benefits of having teenagers is that they appreciate sleep as much as I do! WooHOO! I’m still gonna try to get some projects done through the summer. They may be a little more spread out, but I’d like to be a little productive! 😆  Today, I’m sharing a project I have been wanting to do for a looonnnnggg time. Not sure why I put it off. But, it’s done now!

    Shared Bathroom Inspiration and Mood Board

    About a month ago we discovered that our shower fixture was leaking in the kids/guest bath. Like you can’t turn the water all the way off. This unfortunately is not the first time this has happened. We have band-aided the situation several times. This issue lies in the original plumbing which honestly needs to be redone. But for me, and probably most DIYers, that just means an if-you-give-a-mouse-a-cookie-experience. Not familiar with that reference?? You should look it up – great children’s books about cause and effect. 😆 Here’s part one of the update that was completed for the ORC last fall. Be sure to keep reading to see my plans for part two!

    Spring 2016 ORC

    Guess what starts this week!?! The spring session of the One Room Challenge {ORC}! The One Room Challenge is an awesome 6 week blogger challenge designed and hosted by Linda from Calling It Home.


    Through this challenge I believe she has helped hundreds of us bloggers/DIYers to start and finish rooms that we were otherwise dragging our feet on! The idea of course is to begin and finish a room in six weeks, while posting weekly updates on your blog. My favorite part of the ORC is the encouragement from everyone else that is in the trenches with you. It’s our own little community of crazy, committed, get-er-doners! {yes, I just made that word up}
