weekend update.

the weekend flew by and now we have a short work week to look forward to. my mind can't stay focused... and all i can think about is turkey and cranberry sauce. progress is being made in the downstairs bathroom though! we ripped out the old countertop, built a base for the new and tiled it. now we need to grout, drop in the sink and install the new faucet.
unfortunately, that won't be the end of the work to get the bathroom looking good again. i still need to get the rest of the old wallpaper off, along with the adhesive, finish painting the trim and cabinets, select and install new hardware, wallpaper and find a mirror.

i do have pictures of the tiled countertop... i just keep forgetting to pull them off my camera!

i have also been lusting over these shower curtains from anthropologie... but considering how much they are, i figure i won't ever own the real thing. i thought my steel blue curtain would still look okay, but i figure if i'm going to be matchy-matchy with the bathroom, i might as well go all the way.

i really think these would be super easy to diy, possibly with some old white (bleached and washed in the hottest water possible, of course) sheets from the goodwill. AND i really would like to leave the edges raw and let them fray. but i can't decide if that would look chic or just like i am lazy. now... to make them white or gray??? any thoughts?

here's to hoping i can get this all done before any xmas holiday guests arrive... i'm guessing probably not, but if i could at least finish the painting and get the wallpaper up, it might not be so bad...

oooo! I think the frayed edges would look chic... not lazy! (but look who you're talking to!)

i'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks that! maybe i will give it a try then... i guess i could always hem them later if i absolutely hated it...
