Bathroom Reno Almost Done! Sneak peeks! :)

This bathroom renovation has been verrrrrrrry slow but I'm happy to say we are ALMOST done!

I will tell you, we have had some major challenges on this project. For instance:
  • Beadboarding the whole top off the bathroom over the old plaster walls, deciding I hated it, and removing it all down to the studs and re-drywalling the whole bathroom...
  • The room not being square OR level... Measuring and math are my specialty, but in this room we pretty much had to throw it out the window and do what just looks good to the naked eye. Totally goes against every fiber in my being, but it worked!
  • The vanity drawer not being able to closed because it EVER SO SLIGHTLY hit the plumbing work for the sink, and having to shorten the length of the drawer...
  • Breaking the beautiful Pottery Barn Quinn Beaded Pivot mirror last night as we were installing it, finding out it was sold out online, and calling 10 stores across the country to find it! (FOUND IT woo hoo! This time I will be so much more careful.. the whole issue makes me sick to my stomach...)
Here are a couple peeks of the ALMOST finished product:

A Cozy Bed

I've been sick with a bad cold and stuck in bed for 3-days. Ugh. I'm finally started to feel a little bit better though, thank God!

All this time in bed has given me time to ponder what is left to do in order to finish our master bedroom. I pretty much love it as it is, but one thing it is missing is a big, beautiful, headboard!

In this room, we've already removed wallpaper and carpet, refinished the wood floors, painted the walls my favorite color (Martha Stewart's Flagstone, of course!), installed a beautiful gallery of photos, and splurged on some beautiful Restoration Hardware bedding.

What I would LOVE is the French Wing Upholstered Bed/Headboard from Restoration Hardware :) I would get it in "Fog" to match the duvet color I already have. 

Alas, getting a headboard is not high on my list of priorities right now, so its just a dream for the time being! But wouldn't it beautiful? :)
