a day in the life


8 paws of approval for the new bathroom space. i can't believe byron and i actually thought that the huge tub in the room would deter them from entering the bathroom, seeing as how they despise baths more than having to pee outside when it's raining . they probably spend more time in there then we do.

bathroom reveal are some photos of our beloved master bathroom for anyone still interested, still checking this lazy blog, and still wondering if we ever finished that HUGE undertaking.

here's the new view from our bedroom


and our super cool, kinda loud, but still so cool, antique sliding barn door


another view from our bed, looking towards the bathroom


yes, there is a chair and an ottoman in our bathroom. is that weird? the idea is to expand our living space from our small bedroom towards the open space under the two huge windows in the bathroom and provide a place to actually sit down while getting dressed. which is quite a novelty in a 100 year old bungalow. unfortunately, delia has decided that this is her new favorite spot in the house, so i find myself sitting on the toilet to put my boots on. not quite how i imagined it.

our vanity, which i love and had made based on the one i saw here


i found a woodworker on craigslist to make our vanity and built-ins for the laundry and kitchen nook. never under estimate the power of craigslist :)


our built-in shelves, which i have yet to figure out what i want to put on them. still not used to having all that storage in a bathroom. and honestly, sometimes the best part is just knowing that it is there. ahh, the possibilities, which justify my continued internet browsing...


laundry pass through, which is AWESOME! i keep telling myself that surely it won't take too much longer for byron to understand that one side is for whites and the other is for darks.


and mary adelyn's tub, as she refers to it


more pictures to follow of kitchen and laundry, i really promise this time.

until then, here are some pictures of our little stomach-bug-recovering honey-bunny. it's amazing what wonders polka dot balloons can work on a sick toddler.
