I have been so extremely busy this past month and have not been able to participate in Kelly's Show Us Where You Live Friday. I was determined to do it this week, even if, for me, it is Show Us Where You Live Sunday:-)
I always do before pictures so no one thinks I'm perfect:-)
Bathroom #1-Our Guest Bath
The baby bathtub, some toys, magazines...
More mess... I would say my house mess is 90% random stuff everywhere!
Poor John and Kate!:-( (see PEOPLE on counter)
And here is after a bit of cleaning...
I love the pop of the white against the green...although White hides NOTHING. These counters are a PAIN to clean and show every hair, every dust, everything!
Above the toilet.
Cute picture of Barclay when he was just teeny tiny!
My precious bird nest and eggs that I LOVE and found at yard sales. I am in love with this cup and soap dispenser! I got them at TJ max a LONG time ago before I even had a house to put them in. Very modern and organic!
Now here are before pictures of our Master Bathroom:
Clothes, luggage, all kinds of random things.
Spilt makeup, and rollers in the sink. Last time I dressed up was ALONG time ago, so it's been a while.
To do list, dirty diaper (yuck I know!) and I'm noticing in this picture it is near my toothbrush. Lovely...
Bathtub with all kinds of random bottles.
Now after A LOT of cleaning:
Again, these beautiful white counters are such a pain to clean! But it looks so pretty! This bathroom was originally a mushroom brown, I like this dark brown a lot better.
Our WONDERFUL storage shelves, I try to not fill them up so I'm ok with some empty ones. It's nice to have all this storage though.
A little painting I did of a lady getting out of the tub.
I know everything looks better in 3s so I couldn't figure out what to put in the 3rd jar. Cotton balls, q tips, and ? SO I filled another one with rocks. I LOVE it! I must admit, I was out of cotton balls, and instead of running to the store on this lay Sunday, I filled it with Breast Pads so you could get the effect. Hehe
A beautiful old vase my friend Rebekah gave to me a couple Christmas's ago! I LOVE it!
My favorite place in the whole house. My calm in the storm. I just have to take a little time to tell you what this bathtub means to me. We have lived in this house for 1 1/2 years and I've only taken 3 showers. The rest have been baths. I take baths at least 2 times a day. I have horrible migraines, and I when I'm in pain, I take a bath, when I'm sad, I take a bath, when I'm overwelmed, I take a bath. I spent hundreds of hours in this bath when I was pregnant. I held my belly and just imagined what life would be like with this new baby. I labored in this tub for about 20 hours before we finally went to the hospital. Now I take baths with my sweet baby. It is truly a special place to me and I'm so thankful for it!
I just figured out to do this today and am so excited about it! I found this cool wine rack at a goodwill in San Fransico for $5 when I traveled California my senior year of college, I carried it all day long in the city and brought it back and had to sacrifice a lot of things to pack it in my luggage. I love it but haven't liked putting our wine in it. So, since I do a lot of my reading in the bathtub, I decided to put magazines in it and also prop my books on it. I think it turned out awesome! I put the bottle I found at goodwill last week in the middle for some color.
I decorated with this cool pottery vase we got for our wedding and a painting I did in college of a nude form:-) It's totally my favorite:-) It's nice and hidden from people who might take offense to it in here though:-)
Behind the door is my husband's shower. Since I never shower, I had no clue the condition of the shower. I was pretty horrified when I opened the door. It was BAD! It took me 30 minutes of hard core scrubbing to get it presentable. Kelly was right, glass showers are a pain to keep clean. Thank the LORD for Magic Earasers! They are great.
Thanks for checking out my bathrooms!
