my bathroom needs some oomph

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

When we moved into our new house a year and a half ago, we added a powder room on the main floor. I like the room but it needs some oomph. Here are some pics of the room (do you know how hard it is to take photos in a super small room???).

Here are the issues -- I like the grey colour but feel it needs some texture so I was thinking of getting some fun wallpaper to punch up the room. Also, I think there's enough room beside the toilet to put a bench or a shelf or something but what to put? (I also need to figure out how to straighten that darn toilet paper holder!) I work at home and use this washroom 18 million times a day (esp since being pregnant) so I think about it a lot. What would you do?

Deck - Before and After

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

What better time to show the before and after of our deck than on the first day of fall??? I meant to post this sooner but I didn't get around to it. The flowers don't look near as full as they do here and everything is getting a bit orangy and crispy but that's ok...

So here is the before shot:

And the after!

Mark designed it and then we enlisted the help of a work friend to put it together for us and he did an amazing job.

Next before and after will likely be the baby's room! We're ALMOST done. I still need to make a window blind, pick up and recover the glider and ottoman from my Mom, put up some pictures and a few shelves and that should be it! Oh I'm going to make a cute little owl softie too... better get too it all!

Happy Fall y'all!

new toy

Thursday, September 09, 2010

Mark came home with a new toy tonight -- a new mac! I've been bugging him to get one for the longest time, but he didn't seem convinced. We had macs in our house my whole life growing up because my mom is a graphic designer and I haven't been using them at all in my day job so I missed them. We had some fun with the photo booth app tonight... can't wait to dig into this thing to see what other fun stuff I can do!

This is what happens when it's raining outside, the hubster is golfing (in the rain) and I'm 30 weeks pregnant.
