I've finally decided on what I am doing with my master bathroom. I bought a piece of art for the wall at Hobby Lobby the other night, a towel bar, magazine rack, some new drawer pulls, some towel hooks and a thingy to hang a hand towel on. Everything...1/2 off. Lord, I love Hobby Lobby. And this week, the metalware stuff, candle holders and candles are on sale 1/2 off. There were a couple of black metal baksets I wanted and some candle holders I want for the tub. Now, I need to pick out paint. I am going with some neutral colors. Black, taupe and creams. Brian has no idea yet. I am thinking I am just going to pick the paint, buy it and start doing the cut in and then let him see it. Then he will have no choice but to finish painting! Sneaky me! He needs to put down the moulding on the floor that was never done. Please don't ask me how long ago he did the tile.... I also need to paint the baseboards, door mouldings and the doors. I still need some curtains, a rug and a couple more things for the wall. I would love a round mirror to go in the "water closet" area. I would also love a new light fixture because the one that is in there is old, nasty and has started rusting! I saw some curtains at Target that would work, but I am not sure if they are exactly what I want. The curtains don't really serve a purpose in there other than decoration. I would like to have one room in my house actually completed. I can never commit, so nothing gets completely done. Story of my life....unfinished projects. If I just worked on unfinshed projects and never started anything new, I would have enough stuff to do until I am like...88 years old. Honest to God truth! And yet, what do I do almost every week? Start a new freaking project of some sort!'s LATE, so I need to get to bed. I am going to work on getting the bathroom cleaned out, so I will take some "before" photos and some "in progress" photos and then "completed" photos. I am DETERMINED to finish this room! But, you know what they say about the road to Hell....paved with good intentions!

Blog ya later!

Heehee! I need to send you some of our in progress photos of our bedroom. We got two walls completely finished yesterday. 2 coats of kilz to cover the red and 2 coats of paint. We did the trim too. B is going to work on the ceiling to day so that we can hopefully move the furniture around so that I can work on cutting in the other two walls while he is away for some of this week. So much work so little time. Good luck on the bathroom project. Definitely post pictures!
