I really didn't have a chance to think about an anniversary of sorts.
In early September,
We started the 7th year of our homes renovation!
Each year at this time, I look back at what we've accomplished and celebrate the
Woo Who moments...
And of course "Another one bites the dust" sing-a-longs!
This helps me get through...when I get depressed about the length of time it's taking... the cost of the whole thing...or sometimes even when I just don't feel like working on one of our many ongoing projects.
It allows me to see things from a different perspective. To celebrate our accomplishments!
I thought I would take you on a tour of sorts...
Through the rooms we have already completed...Share a few of our woo who moments!
I thought we would start in the upstairs bathroom. (Bare with me, there are no windows in here and the lighting really affects my photo quality!
Once upon a time, this was merely a closet.
|we removed the original glass and replaced it with an etched one|
That little door to the right...was our only access to the attic areas.
We decided to leave it for nostalgia purposes. A point of reference.
This closet/bathroom renovation was the final room to be completed upstairs.
One of the things I really wanted to focus on in here was the use materials that were either reclaimed or... Possibly used at the time our home was actually built.
For example, beaded board or cottage planking and LOTS of it.
This old ladder was my Gramps...we found it out in the garage after we bought the house. I love the patina and the fact that it was my grandfathers!
Our Home is an early 1900's craftsman bungalow. In our case, this means a story and a half.
With lots of weird angles. Quirky but quaint.
|before...you can see the vintage dresser waiting in the hall!|
I was very fortunate to have found some fun cottage style antiques in my favorite color...Aqua!
This old wood storm door and the chest of drawers we used for the vanity have their original paint intact!
Having a bathroom upstairs was one of the most important things I wanted to accomplish during our homes renovation. I am so glad we were able to do so!
Having grown up in this house...with only one bathroom...well, I didn't want anyone to have to go through that again!
Incorporating galvanized accessories and lighting was something I wanted to do as well in here since it's one of my favorite metal finishes. Kind of funky and fun!
I was even able to use chain link fence parts for my shower curtain rod and rings!
Whimsical little touches for our playful upstairs bath.
This old mirror I got at a garage sale...when I was 20! okay, so awhile ago!
I had to find a place for it!
The Aqua tin star once hung on the little shed out in the garden.
I kind of like it here in it's new home!
What do you think?
Is it a woo who moment or "another one bites the dust" sing-along?
Actually, I think we did both! Maybe all 3!
Thank you for always encouraging me in our home reno projects!
I can't tell you how much it means to me! Oftentimes, it's your kind comments and input that gets me through the tough times! So again Thank you!
I will share some more of our knuckle bumpers soon!
Until next time...
Thanks for stopping by!
