Bathroom Switch-Up

If you noticed my site looks different.  I was getting bored with the other look so I am experimenting with something new.  I can’t quite find the look I want.
What do you think?
I think it still needs a little more pazzaz. 
It would help if I knew anything about web design! 

“We don’t know what we’re doing!”
This is what we said to each other the other night as we stood in the middle of our guest bath. 
Our goal was to be done with the bathroom remodel by the end of August but, as we all know, these things never go according to plan. 
Inspite of a few hiccups we are seeing progress. 
Now, rewind to the day before we left for our mini vacation to the lake, 
I bought this

I thought  I could do some “studying” on the way! 
As I looked at the pictures I realized how much I love clawfoot tubs and our current remodel plan did not include one. 
I threw the idea out there to Joel and he liked it. 
So now this takes us to “we don’t know what we’re doing”. 
When we got home from the lake we looked at the work we had done which involved gutting the bathroom, new plumbing, building a few walls for the new tub and linen closet and purchasing a tub, sink and light fixtures. 
We decided the new walls would need to be undone and our layout re-worked!
Yep, 2 steps forward, 3 steps back.  That’s how we do it around here!   
We had a tape measure and were trying to figure out what the new measurements for everything would be. 
This was the point when we said “we don’t know what we’re doing!” 
Then bust out laughing!!

Over the course of the next few days we undid a lot of our work and did some purchasing.
We will use this clawfoot tub that is now sitting in our drive way. The tub is only 4 1/2 ft long.
Doesn’t it look like a dead pig on it’s back?!? Its soo cute:)

Instead of this tub.

We will use this antique sink
(found at Wimberley Market Days for $40!!! I love that place you can find anything there!!!)

instead of this sink.

We also purchased this antique cabinet at WMD that we will use as our linen closet. 

Because we switched to a clawfoot we needed to buy a shower curtain ring and faucet and the cheapest one came in polished nickel instead of
satin nickel so we are selling the sconces we bought and are in the market for new ones. 
Ahh!!! We have created so much work for ourselves but it will definitely be worth it!
The colors (all Sherwin Williams colors) we have decided on are
 Summer White for the walls and trim

Toasted Pine Nut for the painted floor

Copen Blue for the ceiling

Latte as an accent color maybe the curtains and shower curtain

Instead of shiplap on the walls

we will use bead board, turned horizontally, on the walls

 and on the ceiling


We are going for this mirror look

with this mirror.

That should bring you up to date on the bathroom.
Stay tuned for more!
With love,
