But not until the end, because I'm mean like that.
Remember a really long time ago, when I told you that Roon and I were remodeling our half bathroom? If you're new around here, allow me to direct your attention to THIS POST about our stupidity involving our new sink. You don't have to click it now, but I would encourage you to click it later. It's a really funny story. Especially now that we're over the embarassment of the whole thing...
Here are some "before" shots:
Here is a view of the particle board medicine cabinet we originally had in there. It no longer closed. I really hated it.
Here you can see the floor, horrible pedestal sink, and some of the damage done by little hands trying to wash at the sink.
I HATED this sink. It is the whole reason I insisted on a remodel in the first place!
Horrible manufacturer mirror, bottom of the line towel ring, and plug in night light. It ALL had to go.
Flat paint is so hard to clean! Houses with little hands that tend to get dirty, need something easier to clean!
Bottom of hte line toilet paper holder, and another view of our gross floor, and more effects of little people. I HOPE it's all chocolate...
The remodel is not complete, but it practically is, so allow me to give you a tour of our NEW AND IMPROVED half bathroom!
FIRST, we took everything out. It was bare. We painted, and did some other stuff before we laid our new floor...
We settled on a light blue paint, because our bathroom is so small. We installed subway tile on the wall behind the sink and toilet, and topped it with some decorative tile. I love the overall look. It makes me happy!
Here's a good view of our new vanity. Don't you just LOVE the sink?! I especially love that I have room to store things like extra toilet paper now! You can also see that my accent color in here is lime green. I think it's fun!
We bought, spray painted, and installed a framed mirror. It's big, it's beautiful, and it adds a nice design element to the room, I think.
Here you can kind of get an idea of the color. Eventually there will be 2 shelves hung right there, with baskets in blue and lime green. We bought all new accessories, and everything matches.
So what do you think?
I know what you're thinking! Who won the dang giveaway?!
Okay, fine. I'll give.
For the record, random.org hated me this time. I did the drawing 3 times, and the first two times it gave me numbers for people's comments who were not entered in the giveaway. Like...the designer herself, someone who entered after the giveaway was closed, stuff like that.
So, technically, this was my 3rd draw, but my first REAL winner.
That winner is...
If I counted right, (and I think I did) comment #29 was MiMi when she said "And BAM, my post is up! :)"
Since MiMi was not entering for herself, that means that the winner of the blog design makeover is:
Congratulations to you! Get in touch with Erin, and she will get started on your design as soon as she can.
Thanks everyone for entering! I wish I could give away more than 1. :(
