Half Bath Makeover and much more......

Hi prim girls,
 As you saw in TV, we had a HUGE snowstorm  here in VA, over 25 inches of white and sparkling powder. Beautiful! Well, if we can't moved to other place that our home, and only we can move from one floor to another we decided to started some projects that we had pending since months ago. Do you remember a post that I requested decoration's tips and ideas for my baths, I received awesome ideas from some prim gals that I used in my half bath this weekend.  We made a wooden frame around the mirror( adhere to  it using liquid nail as Char suggested), painted and sanded the cabinet, to hide the mirrored medicine cabinet we made a wooden door and changed light fixture.  Here are the picture of my bath now,
These are the bath's pictures when we moved to this house,
What do you think?????? I really love our bath makeover, it looks better than in pictures.
 Also, we finished  my dining room, yes... it is finally painted. Last weekend we selected both colors from Valspar, Mercer blue ( it is a beautiful blue-gray color) and Lyndhurst Timber from Natural Trust for Historic Preservation Collection ( it looks like brownish sand). See pictures of it now, with sunlight....

 Without sunlight,( you can appreciate the real color better in these pictures).
Now, we are in the painting process of our kid's bath, as soon we finish, I will be sharing more pic's with you.
Now some pic's of our snowstorm here....
Bye, Bye and see you soon, Evelyn

Our First BIG Makeover

Hi prim girls,
During the weekend we had  a snowstorm. I love to see the snow falling down to ground, but I hate when we had plans that we need to change. That was occured with us!  We are completely bored  and we decided to started a makeover, our BIG one. After our moving to this house, we founded that the last homeowner left a baby's chest. We never used it but we didn't discard it due to the piece was wood and had good bones. Perfect for a makeover! Here is the piece before.....
We removed the drawers and reinforced the piece, painted yellow ochre over black, sanded and stained.
Look how that piece looks now and for what we will used it,
I think it looks better now! I love how it turns out and we had a new prim TV cabinet for free. We only spend a few dollars in a wood board for the doors and wooden knobs for the piece. What do you think?

Today is Watcha Working on Wednesdays in Leslie's Blog - My country home. Leslie, I'm so sorry ..I am completely late this year, I missed a month of projects. Last night we received more snow, result ...NO classes today, two kids running, eating  and screaming for everything, OMG , peace..... Well, God gave me a break (LOL). They decide to play Wii and I started some bunnies and dolls for my selling blog and baked two cakes using a new recipe ( mmmm, so yummy can't wait eat them) .   Here are the pictures....
Bye, bye and see you soon......Evelyn
