Have a great week!!!!

Also, for all of those who inquired about the brand/manufacturer

of the sink in our master bathroom……I have no

idea. I searched high and low and cannot

find any kind of name or

emblem on the sink. I am so sorry!

The master bathroom…..

 

-------

Many of you readers

asked to see more pics of our master bathroom.

At first I was hesitant because our

master bathroom is small and not a luxurious retreat

like you find in newer homes.

However given the age

of our home we feel pretty fortunate to have

our little jewel box of a bath.

-------

When we bought the house

this bath was actually two very tiny

little separate baths!!!!

We gutted everything and combined

the two spaces to make it one master bathroom.

-------

So here it is:

The sink is also a Craig’s List find!

What started out

as a quick trip to pick up a sink

on a Saturday

morning turned into an all day adventure!

My bargain chandy……..found at Lowes for $75!

Yes, I have chandeliers in all

my bathrooms……what can I say?

I do love my sparkly!

bath

 

We found this cabinet

that was torn out of an old house on Craig’s List.

It has the original old bead

board on the back!!!

We added the crown molding and little

glass antique knobs.

I have been looking for

quite a while to find something to hang above the window.

I found this iron fragment on eBay.

It is an iron topper

off a fence from an old cemetery.

My new French chairs……

 

DSC_0003

-------

My darling husband bought me this pair of sweet little

French chairs as an early anniversary present……… I found them on Craig’s List.

The upholstery was in great condition….just needed

a little cleaning, nothing major.

The chairs were painted a gold color…..but not the beautiful

gilded gold you see on so many antique chairs.

I debated on what to do for a few days and finally decided to paint them.

For the finish I decided on a light grey

paint color with distressing so

that the original gold would still show thru.

-------

After a couple of coats of

paint and a little sanding this is the result:

A little glamor…….

 

-------

What’s not to love really?

And to think I spent all that money refinishing my

floors when I could have

done a distressed finish like this……sooooo beautiful!
