The original title for this post was “Bathroom Sneak Peek” but then I realized that FSL could pop up in some skeevy search results when googled. Creepers.
If you’re just catching up, we made the decision to remodel our bathroom last week. We demoed Monday and had a paint mishap the next day. It needed to be finished by this Sunday. We are hosting a big event at our house. Max is getting baptized and casa FSL will be buzzing with people. Needless to say, this was an ambitious project considering our time constraints. Oh yeah, we’re also on a tight budget. No biggie right?
So, Wednesday night Max & I went to Lowe’s to choose the vanity, toilet, sink & faucet. He was pumped! Kind of.
Thursday night, we brought Mr. FSL and our niece to make a final choice. By the way, picking out a toilet led to an interesting conversation with Dan our lovely Lowe’s employee (flush power, seat comfort, etc. yeah. weird.) . Anywho, Friday night we went back with our debit card. We left with these lovely boxes.
Our bathroom is finished for now. New toilet, mirror, vanity, sink, fixtures, accent decor, paint, even a new door knob…done and under budget. I even D-I-Yed a couple of small touches yesterday. Just because I love a good cliffhanger, I’m leaving you with is this sneak peek iPhone shot for today.
Lots of this D-I-Y makeover story was documented on Instagram. If it wasn’t Instagrammed, it never happened right? I’ve been slacking on home and life updates on the blog because I post it all the app. I’m embarrassingly addicted to it (follow @FindingSilverLinings) 🙂 . I’m aware ever since Michele posted this. Realizing & admitting the problem is the first step to correcting it right? Right. I’ll be blogging updates more 🙂
