Bathroom & Belly

22 Jun

Hi!!

Wow I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last post.

I apologize for such a long absence, it’s just been so crazy over here.

We (mainly the husband) have been working on the bathroom every night and weekend to get it done before the baby shower on July 1st! yikes! We have one week left and still have a good amount to get finished.

seal tile and grout

install shower trim

hang mirror

install vanity and chandelier light

finish electrical (fan, switches etc)

install door hardware

install towel and tissue fixtures

Woo!! Did I forget anything?

Anyway here are some progress shots so you can see what we’ve been up to.

We decided to open up the wall to install a pocket door, which has made a huge difference for the space.

Here it is all framed up and installed. I love it!

So here we got the tub in, insulation in, and are starting to drywall.

The drywall going up has made a huge difference, now we could really visualize it!

And now today has been all about paint, Left to Right: Wickham Gray, Horizon and Moonshine all Benjamin Moore colors. We actually already primed the walls, tinted to Horizon so that’s why you can barely see it.

We are painting tonight so I’ll surprise you with the color I chose ; )

Oh and by the way I’m 30 weeks as of yesterday! Yeee!!

Here’s a belly shot from week 29

Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Wish us luck on wrapping this bathroom up! My poor husband will be busy all weekend ; )

the perfect mint paint

23 May

I’m on the hunt for the perfect mint paint.

I’ve actually already tried about 10 colors, with still no luck.

This is what I’m looking for

The above color is actually Robins Nest by Ben Moore. But of course with lighting and camera settings it’s a beautiful mint color. Which I must have!

BTW I tried Robins Nest and it’s way too dark for the space and of course not mint.

This one is Spearmint Stick by Behr…pretty right? well the swatch is almost fluorescent green. Not exactly what the photo reads. But I still love this color and want it!
