complete new bathroom - check!

It's not decorated yet, but the new bathroom is done! Ok, not completely, but almost. Geez, this is a tough crowd. I apologize for the bad photos - the bathroom is a tough shape to get good ones in.

We had our vanity custom made to look like one from Restoration Hardware, which doesn't come in the right size and is way overpriced. We're pretty happy with how it came out. Not like jumping up and down happy, but happy enough for the price. I did snag some hardware from there, though, on sale, to dress it up a bit.

The mirror was a steal at $50 from Home Depot (it became an even better deal when Mom offered to buy!), and it looks like it was made to go with the vanity. We did splurge on the Kohler faucet, but we love it. It brings a bit of modern style, without seeming out of place in the old house.

Oh, and the water-saving toilet was free from one of Kyle's subcontractors. Can't beat that!

Now, we've just got to give it a good cleaning, put one more coat of paint on the baseboards, have the tile guy come and fix the mess that the plumbers made in the shower, and do a little decorating.
And, we are excited to have JoAnn, our realtor, over for dinner and to play our own little version of HGTV's My House Is Worth What? to see how much value was added by going from a 1 bathroom to a 2 full bathroom house. We are sure that at least a lot of comfort will result!
Finally, Kerry - here's a shot of the new 'do for you. As they say in Atlanta, I got my hair did.

Have a great weekend! We're heading to a house on the bay with Kyle's parents and sister & family to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. And we get to play with the cutest toddler and baby twins ever!!

I love the hair!! It looks great! Thanks for posting a picture. And the bathroom looks amazing! You should think about going into interior design. I love all the choices you have made. Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see it in person. Have a fun weekend!!
