HOME: the Perfect Nest

Lately, Kevin and I have been working on some home improvement projects.  There seems to be 100+ projects we want, or should start.  Slowly we have tried to improve our home, rooms and yard with "mini projects".  Why stress ourselves out and our wallets with everything all at once?!  I've been most impressed with our guest bathroom.  The bathrooms in our home were so outdated.  Next year we will tackle the master bath.  But take a peak at the hallway guest bathroom.  We found this great sink vanity at a Celadon Warehouse sale.  What a great find at a 1/3 of the price!  It has a rustic feel to it.  The vision was based around the sink vanity and everything else fell into place.  One of our great friends, Kendall helped us replace the old vinyl floor with slate colored tile.  It looks great!  Thanks Kendall!  Next we had the new commode and sink vanity installed (with help of course).  Kev is handy, when it comes to calling the experts!  ;)  Next I found a great sale on the shower curtain at pottery barn that I really loved.  A decent shower curtain was one of the hardest finds!!!  But even harder I think, was picking out a color for the walls to blend with the shower curtain!  I'm sure Home Depot's paint department hated seeing me at 10:45pm!  So indecisive!  All-in-all, I am very pleased!  Lastly, I just added little touches: wooden bird cage given to me by my MIL, beautiful hydrangeas from our yard, towel and magazine baskets from Marshalls (love discovering affordable, great finds there), old mirror from our garage that was once over our fireplace (so glad I held on to it...Kev is always trying to give things away).  We propped the mirror on the vanity instead of hanging it on the wall;  I really like the look.  Thanks to good friends and great turned out great!  Just try it, one room or project at a time.  It will make you much happier with your Home, your Nest.  And be smart with your doesn't have to cost a fortune!    And do it with the ones you brings a sense of accomplishment and teamwork as a couple!
