Getting so close now!!!

Oh this bathroom redo is coming along just great!

Today the floor tiles were laid and Monday he will
come back to do the grout.

I started to stencil the walls but ran out of time yesterday
to get more done, now I have to wait a couple more days
to try and finish it up...I'm so anxious I'm antsy LOL

Doug's work is done until the cabinet doors and drawers go back on
- but I think I can find something for him to do  😊

Counters/sinks/faucets installed last week.
I think my biggest problem will be what kind of curtain
to put up. Possibly just a plain white sheer on the rod kind....
nothing fancy - it's a small window.

Doug put up the wainscot and chair rail Thursday
and it just brought things together!

Yesterday I tested colors and design for the stencil.
Some of you may or may not recognize some of it....
I used 'parts' of the stencil from our bedroom.
We liked it so much and besides why waste them and
buy new ones for what they cost.
I didn't use the 'leaf' parts of the stencil because I didn't want 
to introduce a 3rd color. I wanted just the gray and aqua.

This is what I came up with for color

....and this is the design

And of the floor was laid - grout comes Monday.
We chose a very light gray - didn't want the tiles to be too defined.

In a way when this room is finished it will be a let down.
Doug and I both love projects - big and small.
So I think possibly the next one is the
crown molding for the dining room...
told you I would think of something for him to do!!!
