A Few Reveals

Hey ya'll! It is hard to believe that this long three day weekend has nearly come to a close. Hope you are enjoying it with family and friends. The Hubster has to work so the boys and I are headed over to our friends for a lil' cookout. While I am waiting on the mac-n-cheese to finish baking I thought I would share a few of the little projects I have finished up over this long weekend.

Last night I posted about this here toilet. I asked ya if you could ever even guess what I could have possibly done to it...other than clean it, Ha!

Am I crazy or what!!?? Remember I am going for cottage chic with whimsy written all over it. When you walk in these rooms I want you to feel happy and peaceful. So honestly what do ya think? I figured it was just a toilet seat and we always end up replacing them when the house hits the market so why not!? I looked into just purchasing a yellow one but all there was were those old vinyl seats with the foam in them that when you sat down on them they decompressed and eventually cracked every where. Do you remember those or am I totally dating myself here? The bathroom looks super cute in person. I am currently now working on window treatments. I did the valance last night. Think white cafe curtains with ric rac or even yo yos.

This is a pic of what is quickly becoming one of my fave corners in the guest bedroom. Yes, that there is the ever so in famous Ikea picture frame hanging up there. I used the same color of spray paint on it as I did the toilet seat. Originally the frame was black. It is not totally done but done enough to hang it up. I am going to put some chicken wire on it and then back it with a pretty matching fab.

I had had the frame for over 6 months and loved it but just could not figure out what to do with it. It then dawned on me a few days ago when I was admiring this Shabby Blogs button. Yep that was the fate of the Ikea frame.

Here is a close up of it and a snippet of the door headboard I refinished. I will reveal it for Whoo Hoo Wednesday this week and also let ya see how the guest room is coming along as a total picture.

Well the mac-n-cheese is done and the boys are protesting so gotta go.

Linking up to Metamorphosis Monday and The DIY Showoff!
Just found the Paint Party over at Domestically Speaking and am joining in on the fun!:) Head on over for some more great project ideas.

P.s If any of you are pro bloggers and can tell me how to link my before and after posts to my before and after section I would be so ever grateful! I just can not figure it out.


  1. Oooohhh I love it! You are definitely getting the look you are going for! I adore all of the color!


    Happy Memorial Day!

  2. Well, that is definitely different. I love your color scheme you have going. I guess you painted the seat.

  3. You have been busy! Loving how it is all coming together! Sounds like a great idea for the curtains!

  4. Yes, I got a crazy hair and just decided to spray paint it to see how it looked. It already had a scratch on the top so I figured I could not make it any worse. Now the test is to see how well it will hold up. That bath is not used on a regular basis so it may do just fine as long as I make sure to dry the seat off after I clorox it.

  5. I've just browsed all your before and after pictures and you have done a great job!! I really love that's gorgeous.


  6. L-O-V-E everything you are doing -it looks SOO good!!! The yellow is fab!!!

  7. I love the yellow frame! It will look great with the chicken wire & fabric, too.

  8. I absolutely love what you are doing!

  9. Love all the color!

  10. I was loving that "bee" happy button when I clicked into your blog! How cool! I think that will look great. The frame looks like it was made for that project, too.

  11. Very cute! I love the frame and your cottage corner. I'm going to check out the blog button next :).
