Some finished projects.

Before…
After…
Things we did to the outside (front): painted the shutters, added flowerbeds (can you say NO landscaping?), took out the dying – and ugly – evergreen bush, got a new, prettier front door.

What didn’t we do in the bathroom? We: plumbed for a 2nd sink, added electrical for a second light above a second mirror that we installed. Replaced the subflooring and added the tile (ew, I’m not a big fan of laying tile, but it is pretty). Painted cabinets and added new cabinet hardware. Replaced the countertop with more tile. Painted the walls. Added pictures I took (and developed) at craft camp :). Um…that’s all.

Amazing.

    Very cool!! The bathroom looks great, and I LOVE the red door–it really makes a huge difference in how the whole house looks from the outside. Nicely done!
