Bathroom makeover begins..

I decided to give my daughters bathroom (aka: guest bathroom) a new look.

So I have been working on it the past few days on/off...
Here is the before:

After emptying the room, I painted it a pretty shade of gray.
Then I went with a textured fabric gray shower curtain, and coordinating rugs that
I already had.
So now to the final part of this project, debating on the accessories
and pulling it all together.

I know it is hard to tell in the photo, (I used a different camera/lens for this picture)
but it is actually brighter in this room now, which is nice because this room doesn't
have a window.

So right now I am in decision mode.

I placed a bright turquoise towel next to the gray one to see how that would look
with the gray.
I know I want to add in another color here and there.
Currently, I am leaning towards adding white to brighten it up even more,
and then small amounts of a pop of color.

As soon as I make up my mind, I will be able to complete the room.
Decisions, decisions.... :0)

Oh the tomatoes... and a project in progress

We have had a really busy last few weeks.

We had a great time on vacation - it just went by way too fast. :0)

Our garden has been keeping us busy with lots (& lots) of tomatoes...
So I have been freezing, and canning.
The jalapeno's are about ready and salsa is in our near future. Yay.

I may rethink how many tomatoes to plant in the garden next year. :0)

Our daughter came up with a project that she found searching the internet...
and we decided to use this wooden hutch to make our own version.
So here is a sneak peek at what we have been working on... (here is the before)

This wooden hutch was given to us recently, and we are changing it up...
you'll never guess what it is going to be used for. :0)

I'll be sharing more on it soon.
