That's what I said after I saw my newly installed bathroom faucet!!
I absolutely hate it!!!
To me it looks like a Tyrannosaurus Rex with the big body and stubby arms!!!!
The arms have an oldfashioned look but the spout has very modern lines. it looks like Carl Mauldens Nose!!(sorry Carl)
Not to mention I bought a nickle finish when my mirror is Gold!!!
What was I thinking!!!!!
He looked at me like I had 2 heads and that I had just lost my mind because we had a friend come over and change it for us and I couldnt possibly expect it to be changed now!
But he new the look I gave him back was 'yes it has to be changed I cannot live with this and I wont be happy untill we do'
So guess who won! :)
What prompted this bathroom spruce up was this picture......
So I have to change the sconces, while im at it and have the wall exposed I will have to change the wallpaper,
and while im at that I might as well change the faucet because the finish was worn, then since im changing the wallpaper I will have to do new shower curtain and curtains..........
what was suppose to be a simple spruce up has now turned into a much bigger redo.I made these littleshades years ago.... Sadly they will be retired and I will do something else
This will be the new wallpaper,
its a very pretty soft bluie aquaie paper with a soft scrolly damask pattern, Its from Blonder wall paper Cottage Prints book.
I like it for several reasons, its airy and fresh and the color will allow me to put alot of my Catherine Risi art work and furniture in the room, it will be the perfect back drop and accent to her things.
I need to put wallpaper in that room because its the one room we didnt completely gut and put new sheet rock in, the walls have several layers of wallpaper from previous home owners (and me) which I AM NOT GOING TO STRIP!!!!
Iwill just add to the multiple layers and keep with tradition whats one more!!!! :)
besides they say wallpaper is coming back...
Now because I dont have enough to do between home life, bathroom redo, kitchen redo, dogs, store, website, baby shower for cousin, camping next week, summer, kids home, vacations planned, mystery illness still lurking,
I have also undertaken another project and that was pulling up the carpet in our living room(my sanctuary) and redoing our hardwood floors!
This is my husband saying....."Who pulled up the carpet and is redoing the floors???????????
Actually he is doing the hard part of it but I did clear the room of my millions of Chatchkies
and will hand wash everything before putting everything back(if I remember where it goes) and do some touch up painting....
but at least it will really get a true spring cleaning!!
they are almost done!
Ill keep posting pictures of my bathroom project and kitchen project which are also in the works!
then I can say the house is done!! well almost.....
I just have to finish my bedroom,
spruce up my office,
tweak the family room.....then ill be done....oh wait......
