This post focuses on the double vanity we had installed [back in September 2012!] in our master bathroom. Jim has always maintained that double sinks are the key to a happy marriage and now that we have them, I’d agree!

Back in June 2012, [a few weeks after getting married *happy squeak*] Jim & I flew down to MD to visit his Auntie Alice and her husband Ben. We stayed for a long weekend with them at their gorgeous home on Tilghman Island, MD.
This is project #3 on my 2015 Projects list. I got the idea from the Young House Love blog and thought it would be perfect for our kitchen. This was probably the quickest DIY project I’ve done yet! 15 minutes from start to finish and that includes having a war with the 2 spare boards.
Project #4 on my 2015 Projects list is “Paint Small Bookcase in Girl Cave Purple”. The scope of this project recently changed, in part because of something that will be revealed in a forthcoming post, and in part because my parents would love to have it back. So today I completed the project as far as I can in terms of the new scope, so I’m calling it DONE!
Updated 4/19/15 with better pictures – mostly because Birdie is posing in them 🙂
OK, remember last week when I ordered the cool little swirly rug for the front hall before realizing it was too small? And then I ordered a bigger one, which is basically a big black square? Yeah, that arrived today. I excitedly laid it out in the front hall, and it fit beautifully! But the door [the inner one which leads from the front hall to the house] wouldn’t open over it! Gah!!!

Last weekend I painted the walls and closet interior grey. I also got down on my hands and knees and gave the tile floor a good scrub. Between the new wall color and the freshly scrubbed floor, it was painfully obvious that the old area rug/doormat HAD TO GO.

I had today off from work. I had some extra vacation time built up, so I’ve taken 3 Wednesdays off over the past couple months. I like taking Wednesday off because you work 2 days, then have one day off, then work 2 more days, and have 2 days off. I prefer shopping on weekdays because the stores are blissfully vacant, so Wednesdays are perfect for errands.
