I’m almost as excited for this as I was watching tonight’s episode of GOT. Sam the Slayer!
It’s been a bit since I posted on the bathroom. But, we’re finally done!! We’ve been functional around here for a while, but had some issues getting our fixtures to arrive un-shattered, read: 2 busted mirrors on delivery. So now that we’re painted, sealed, accessorized and photographed, I present to you the Neuzel shitter!
Let’s have a quick reminder of what it looked like before -
I’m in love with it. Its small, but we managed tons of storage and character.
And in other bathroom news, I’ve been given the exciting opportunity to help out on the remodel of another bathroom as well! My good friend Rachel’s parents have asked me help out on the reno (that hubby is doing!) of their bathroom. So more reveals to come! It’s going to look so great!
Read. To make your home a happier place.
Look. Abandoned places around the world. I want to live in/at a lot of these places.
Watch. By now everyone has seen the Dove ‘women are more beautiful than they think campaign. Here’s one for men, funny.
Watch. again. Oh hipsters.
Cook. Casey is on doctors orders to eat more fiber. So this was on the menu this week.
Shop. Want these in every color. Case, do you read this?
Laugh. Funny – can’t wait for teenagers some day. A twelve year old girl and her mom at the museum.
I had to repaint the living room, again. Tip for renovating, do your trim first, then paint your house. After we did trim, we had to caulk and paint. When I went back to touch up the walls around the trim, the paint color on the wall and the color in the can had miraculously changed color, which sucked. I took it as a blessing in the living room because I wanted to lighten up the grey by a shade or two anyways.
Can you tell the difference? Yeah, me either. But it is lighter in person.
I also took this opportunity to replace the enormous painting I had hanging on the only available wall in our house for said painting. It may be on loan if anyone is interested. Its awesome and I can’t part with it because it reminds me of the drive to Pullman.
Lets get back on track. Gallery wall.
I spent last weekend clipping Michael’s and Hobby Lobby coupons for my frame shopping spree. With all the coupons, plus a 25 dollar gift card to Michaels (Thanks Ing) I only spent 50 bucks on this little gallery! Casey wasn’t as impressed as I, but trust, that’s a good deal!
Little trick I learned from YHL -
Not totally complete, needs a little something…..Pictures. They’ll probably hang there blank until we move because picking pictures is way harder than buying and hanging frames.
And one more frame for the right corner is needed…
Feel free to send pictures to put in the frames. Your kids, pets whatevs
Cook. I’ve made this two times this week and it’s amazing. Don’t be a child, brussels sprouts are good!
Read. Who knew Dax Sheppard had such a way with words and a touching story.
Laugh. My husband asked me this week in all seriousness, “don’t you ever just Google cats and laugh?” Could I be married to this?
Watch. Would you ever have the balls to do this?
Decorate. Sometimes I get the urge to paint our whole house white and clean things up. Like?
Do. I’m gone this weekend, and the hubby is gone next. We’re going to need some date night ideas.
I’ve been a little lax on the posting, March somehow got away for me. There was not a lack of doing though. Minor details left for a completed bathroom, some crafty projects, a new guest bedroom…Just need to find the time to take pictures. Why is that so hard when I find the time to watch all 5 seasons of Mad Men in 30 days?
In the latest installment of Craftholes we convened at Chelsea’s house to paint wine glasses. Never one to be outdone, she killed it on hosting! Check out this freaking table.
Is that awesome or what? Chelsea popped her dollar store cherry for Craftholes and did it with a bang. All this was dollar store finds; paint sets, little paint pallets, glasses, sponges, stencils.
Going to be hard to top this one.
After painting we sent them to the oven and stuffed our faces with mac & cheese. They turned out great! Mines the pimp chalice. I thought my medium was puff paint for some reason.
Susie, Lauren, Bre, Chels, Jamie, Camila, Erin, Jen
Another great Craftholes in the books! Thanks Chels!

Since we’re planning to sell this summer – I need to start declaring rooms finished in this project. So I hearby pronounce, the kitchen is donezo!
Now the fun part – before and afters.
It still blows my mind that this is what we started with. How did I live in that kitchen for so long? I must really be in love with the hubby to not see this mess and just be so excited to live with him!
Notice the kitchen just keeps running on into the laundry room.
Fridge at the entrance to the kitchen.
This one’s crazy to me – no window in dining room and that wall next to the fridge, really closed things in.
This was no gut job and rebuild in a month or so. We slowly updated wiring, drywall, appliances, cabinets, counters, paint, floor, backslash over about 2 years. Some of the details of those projects are in posts here, here, here and here.
And here we are, as finished as she’s going to get. Because we have other projects to work on to get this baby on the market!
There are so many things we learned along the way and things I would have done differently if I had the option to redo, like take the cabinets all the way to the ceiling but overall I really really love my kitchen.
Last week I didn’t get to posting, but there was a lot of work going on around the Neuzel Project!
Sneaky peaky at the this room that was painted pink (no I’m not pregnant despite what the lady at Home Depot thought) and got some wedding art…
Sneaky peaky at what’s going on with the bathroom remodel. New floor tile = no toilet for the Neuman’s. Its been real. This picture is sans grout, that’s why its all crappy looking.
Back soon with a bathroom and bedroom reveal!
