Home Improvement Projects

Yesterday was a play day. Off to the golf course, we are not going to talk about the really bad day on the course. I lost my swing. Today, was home project day. We got rid of our old gold outdated porch light and went for a more rustic looking lamp. We took the mail box off and spray painted to it to match the light. No more nasty gold on the front of the house! Yeah!!!!

I have also been wanting to paint my bathroom since we have moved in but haven't decided on a color or scheme or anything until now. This is a before picture. The previous owners had the bathroom redone in a very contemporary style. Not our style at all. Textured faux finished wallpaper, tile walls and black marble floor. The light fixture was also not my style at all. It had little glass rods the covered the bulbs. It put out lots of heat.

I finally decided on a paint color and we bought a new light. So here is the finished bathroom. I need to add some more "Shabby-chic" decorations. I really think that I'm going to love my new bathroom. I think that when it is all finished, the contemporary will be gone and it will finally match the rest of my home.
The evening ended with a meeting of the homeowners association. We've never belonged to a HOA so this is a new thing for us. You'll never guess who is the new Vice President. They nominated Cowboy, who promptly declined and said his other half should have the job. So I'm it. This should be interesting.
