Where We Do Our Business

Kelly's Korner is touring bathrooms today!



I'll start with our guest bathroom, since you're my guest:


This dresser was the first piece of furniture that Marcus's mom and dad bought as a married couple. I acquired it a few years ago and it just happen to fit in this space perfectly. Marcus was a little bit nervous about cutting a hole in it for the sink, but it was worth it.


Here I took off the cabinet doors on these shelves. I had these two shutters that happen to fit perfectly too!


I added the stained glass window by the potty area for more privacy.
And the basket shelves hold a ton of decorating magazines, towels and t.p. Which it looks like we need to make a run to Sam's and get more.

That space where the wreath is, used to be a door into our t.v room. We thought it was a little awkward. Especially if we had company over; they might get stage fright if you know what I mean.

And my shower curtain is from http://www.target.com/.


Here is a BEFORE we moved in picture of the bathroom:








And now our master bathroom:
The Verse over the cabinets is Jeremiah 29:11.




We have two sinks, but I always use Marcus's. Mine usually has a hair dryer or Chi sitting in it.

Having these home tours every week, sure gets me motivated to finish projects. I started beading these windows last year, but I just finished this afternoon. Don't touch them, the glue's not dry yet!

This old drawer sits at the end of my tub holding towels and bubble bath stuff.


I got these initials and frames above our closest from Hobby Lobby:



The potty area; fully equipped with magazines and Yahtzee:

I attached some hooks on the back of a cabinet door to hang my necklaces. It's not fancy, but it keeps me a little organized. I am not known for my organization.

Here are the BEFORE we moved in pics.











You may be into peach tulips, but we aren't. I am thankful for a handy husband.

I love the dresser you turned into the bathroom vanity. My parents had one almost just like it, but sold it a few years ago. I wish I could get it back!

What do the beaded windows look like on the other side of the window?

Tickled Pink Talk said...

OMG! We have that same Yatzee in our Master Bath too!!! LOL! :)
I don't have any after shots yet, because I am still living with the before, so no pics today....
Just had to share! Oh, and your bathrooms are LOVELY!! Great job with the re-dos.

I just love to see a good make-over and so far, yours has been the BEST! Love the old dresser made into a vanity!

Also I love how you took down some of the doors on that wall of shelves in your master bath and made some open shelves! Very nice! I never seen so many shelves in a bathroom......don't you love it?

You did a wonderful job!
Blessings!

Love your rooms! Can you tell me what you used to glue your 'beads' to the bathroom window? I LOVE that idea and am probably going to steal it. :)

Hi I just found our blog on Kellys tour of homes. I absolutely loves the beads on those small, narrow windows. We have a small window exactly that shape and size on either side of our front door. Ive been looking for something to do to them to give us more privacy but I couldn't think of anything creative. Would you mind telling me how/hwat you did with those beads? Im thinking thats the perfect solution!!!
