White Wednesday Around the House

Another Great White Wednesday Has Arrived

First off is a cross stitch angel Jennifer stitched for Mom last Christmas. Pattern is one of the freebies from Mirabilia. She did a fabulous job and it is gorgeous. It now hangs in our den so we can enjoy it's beauty everyday.

Bathroom Renovation This Past Spring

Our house did not have a bathroom until 1974. They still used the old out house in the backyard. There was an outside porch on the side of the house and this is where they put the bathroom when they decided to add one. It is very tiny and had 1 room off of it that was used for storage. Thank goodness we didn't move in until 1975.

I just happened upon the white sink base at Lowe's for $10.00 and that started the entire renovation mess. We have such a small space the pedastal sink now gives us an illusion of more space. And of course we had to have a new mirror along with lights.

Mom's bargain pewter lamp she found at a yard sale. It resides in the corner of our dressing room off the bathroom.

Our new chest we needed for the dressing room and found at a local antique mall. This little room is just off the bathroom and we have always used it for storage until this past year. We replaced the dark brown paneling with white beadboard paneling and that makes the room seem so much larger. It was such a great addition to the bathroom and we enjoy it so much.
