A Blue Bathroom and other pictures of my Homework

We decided to switch rooms with the girls again. We are back in the master bedroom and they're in the small room. I had an idea of what I wanted to do with the lighting in their room, but I had to try out every configuration. After moving almost everything around like five times, I realized I should have taken pictures so I could compare. So I went back through the process taking pictures. These pictures are from that process (that's why there's so much junk in the pictures) In the end I decided to go with my original plan. There's a nice before shot of the door to that room too (we replaced it on Saturday).

Besides the obvious cleaning and organizing, I just need to move the pictures and attach the skirt fabric to the bottom part of the bench. I also need to figure out how to fix that nice floor lamp I just bought at target since it's now leaning like crazy!

Saturday morning we went to the home depot kids workshop and made orange race cars. The kids were thrilled, especially since we've packed up so many of their toys already.

Here's a sketch of our deck plan for the backyard- just waiting for approval from the condo association.

The dishwasher now has some faux metal contact paper and just needs a coat of black paint on the bottom pieces (and they come off- happy, happy, joy joy!) and a little touch up on the top.

The bathroom is finished. I have a pretty hotel-ish fabric shower curtain I'm going to put up when we list the house and some nice towels that match them. They're both white with a brown line. It's hard to take a good picture of a bathroom! But I think it has turned out well and Bob doesn't think putting trim around the mirror/medicine cabinet is such a dumb idea any more.

I spray painted the outlet covers with the same bronze paint as I used on the mirror trim. I wasn't sure if it would work, but they're cheap to replace, and I think they turned out just fine. I also spray painted the antique brass hooks that are on the wall behind the door too. Now every metal in there is either bronzey or silver. I neglected to get a picture of them today while I was taking pictures. I think our little cannon is on it's last rubber banded together leg.

Spring has sprung in the kitchen! The branch I brought in now has flowers on it.

We're getting our house ready to sell. We want to buy a bigger one in the same area. We'll still be here (in the ward) when you guys get back :)
