Hello awesome friends!! I have a redo of a redo for y’all today!
But first, congratulations to Malia S. She won my latest craft junk box giveaway. She has already been notified and her package is on the way! Thank you to everyone who entered. I’ll have another fun box of goodies to giveaway starting the week of July 15th!
At the time, my youngest was still a toddler and I liked that it had a back on it so he could use it to sit at our larger kitchen island. Later it worked perfectly as a extra seating and looked cute sitting at the end of our mini rolling island:
The grain sack stripe was cute in that space, but the base was a creamy white (Cottage White by Behr) to match our cabinets, and it was looking pretty dingy against our bright white trim in our new house.
It was time for a refresh:
Of course I had to go with my new favorite blue, Sunken Pool by Behr. (DIY chalk paint recipe HERE.)
This is in our downstairs guest bath…
I actually used the same color on the walls in there although it looks a shade deeper in these photos. You can see that full makeover HERE if you missed it. (Or go see it again…it was a good one! 🙂 )
I let several areas of the creamy color show through to give it a more time-worn look, but I may go back and add a touch of bright white to those areas instead.
It just adds a touch of whimsy. I used spray adhesive on the back of the stencil to hold it in place, then I used a small brush to fill it in…
This won’t be staying in this bathroom. It will head back to the kitchen to live. There isn’t really a need for extra seating in here two feet from the commode. Unless you want a friend with you in there, but I’m guessing no.
Here are a few peeks of our guest bath. (Actually Jack has claimed this one.)
Even after I just redid the boys’ bathroom, he prefers this one. See that HERE if you missed it. (Or go see it again, it was a good one too! 🙂 )
This bathroom is nice and bright and he can make all the noise he wants when he’s getting ready for school at 5:30 in the morning without disturbing anyone. This Mama appreciates the extra sleep!
Remember this cute shelf I made out of my neighbor’s trash?
I loved this one so much that I hung onto it when I knew we were looking to buy a new house, hoping I’d find a place for it. You can see this makeover HERE. In case you can’t tell, the bottom portion is the back off of an old porch rocker.
In other more exciting news… we are going on vacation!! We closed on our old house the week before Spring Break and my hubby was desperately trying to squeeze together a little vacation to celebrate while the boys were out of school. However it didn’t happen.
Then on Friday night, my husband came to the dinner table with his iPad and we knew he was up to something. He had planned a Disney cruise to the Bahamas! Actually he hadn’t hit GO yet, but had it all planned out. I couldn’t say GO fast enough! We are super excited! Any hot tips for us?? We’ve cruised before, but not with Disney.
I’ll still be back here on Thursday (even though my body will be poolside) with one of my favorite outdoor projects that will also make a perfect Mother’s Day gift, this sweet teapot garden feature:
See ya then!!
