I'm not sure how it happened, but having a hole in my laundry room floor & wall (which have been repaired) turned into a little mini bathroom makeover. Oh wait I do know, he said "hey since this wall is open lets move the outlet in the bathroom to where you want it". Like we didn't already have enough unfinished projects around here already, but here is a sneak peek at the trim that is going above the mirror that we decided to redo since we moved the outlet. :) It's like a freaking tidal wave the projects just keep on a comin'.

We will be framing the mirror in hopefully tomorrow or the next day (cross fingers here). And then the bathroom will look fab! I guess it pays to have a handy husband who is even more handy at listening to his wife's trim taste and the ability to use pneumatic tools like a pro. And you will never guess what color I will be painting this trim. :) He used 3 trims, one of them was a scrap piece from when he made the fluted trim for the living room. Don't mind the primer paint job. And yes I know, I have no nails. My french tips have gone by the wayside along with all my skinny size 7 jeans.

Proof that I am trying to work around a baby. This is why it takes me 300 yrs to get things done. Well that and my 4 other kids.
Oh and if your wondering what ever happened to my TV hutch that got painted black. Well she's still here looking all distressed and fabulous, but I am looking like crazy for some cute fabric to put behind the screen door. It's a small town with NO Jo-Ann's just a wally world and a couple quilt stores. So you don't get to see her until she gets her clothes on. I couldn't show her in the nude that would be rude!
