Update...

Last week I didn't do much blogging. Monday and Tuesday our house was turned upsidedown as old windows were replaced with new ones. {Gorgeous} I didn't know what a difference it would make, but it's phenomenal!

Wednesday we had an incredible snowstorm that brought with it a lot of collateral damage. Tree branches snapped like twigs under the weight of that heavy, wet snow! Let's just say there was a little clean-up associated with that disaster... 


Thursday and Friday the sun came out and I started painting our master bed and bath in preparation for the big overhaul -- a master bed and bathroom redo -- that starts today. Fortunately, I am not very involved in the demo or construction of the bathroom, so that leaves me free to reintroduce myself to my sewing machine and whip up a few items. I'm looking forward to that! The first things I'm going to make are some extra-special kid's pillowcases for Christmas presents. More on that later this week!

Here are a few pictures of the "before" bathroom. We got up extra early this morning to clear it out and remove the carpet. Saturday I gave the ceiling its first coat of paint. I also painted the widow ledges with the new paint color before we replaced the blinds after the new windows were installed.



I'm going to miss this soaker tub. That tub took me down from many a ledge as the kids were growing up. Half hour in there with steaming hot water and lots of  bubbles and my cares drifted away...


"Before" pictures are always a little embarrassing. One can live with something for quite some time before the realization hits you that a little update is required! Ah well, looking forward to the changes...

I can't wait to see what this bathroom is going to look like! The last bathroom you redid was so pretty!

Good luck with your remodel. Be sure to take pictures all along the way so you can confirm that progress is being made. It can get quite depressing but the end result is fabulous. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Looks like you have lots going on! We just added a new master bath last year and it was the best thing we've done to this house...especially the tub!
Good luck with the snow! I'm not sure I could handle that!
