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!
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!
At the beginning of April I started my front hall entrance overhaul. It involved ripping out the hideous carpet from the closet and painting the walls and closet Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal. Now it’s time to start thinking about TILE.
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.
Guess who went to the local hardware store after work and bought a full sheet of ¾” plywood? That’s right, this girl! Woohoo! I don’t know why I love plywood so much… probably because it’s the first wood I’ve ever bought and I haven’t graduated to “real” wood yet.
The front hall has needed an overhaul forever. I sort of sporadically decided to paint it grey this weekend. Well, let me backup a bit. Last year, when I was re-doing the laundry room, I was torn between Benjamin Moore Night Flower [a bold raspberry] and BM Kendall Charcoal. I chose raspberry for the laundry room but kept Kendall Charcoal on the back burner.
