White Redirection Bathroom Redo


Okay, so yesterday wasn't my best day.
Being frustrated and upset about the school led me to take that anger and channel it into something I haven't done for myself in a long time.
Something about my independence in my wife and motherly years has slipped away.
I have stopped doing things on my own and push it off for my honey-do list instead.
Well, that ended as of yesterday.
I wanted my horrible oak bathroom cabinets to disappear since buying this home.
Yesterday I made that happen. 5 years of looking at this horrible oak was enough.
I took to the garage found a pint of light grey blue paint left over from our bedroom walls and just dove right in.
I felt so good taking the reins again of doing something for myself.
Taking my complete frustration out in the sanding and taping and painting.

I couldn't believe my eyes, the space became elegant and fresh with just a few hours of work.
I couldn't stop looking at it. I feel accomplished and proud.

This is where I sit every morning to get myself ready for the day ahead. I usually rush with a ponytail and 5 minute smearing of makeup. Now I want to sit and enjoy getting ready.

I have a few pieces of new artwork I want to hang in here as well. Now the attached bath closet matches the counter space. I am thrilled!

Now to head to the lumber store to pick out the new tile :)

Amy,
Wow, what a difference! I'm so proud of you! It reminds me of the time that my dh had a business trip and I took it upon myself to rip out the "tennis" themed wallpaper (yep, you read that right!) in our hall bath.
I had absolutely had it with looking at that outdated wallpaper!
Feels good, doesn't it? To take back control....proud of you!
