New Lighting & a New Look for the Hall Bath

Over the last few months,  I have been gradually updating the lighting in our home.   
First, the kitchen got new lighting over the island and then just a few weeks ago the laundry room got a makeover and new lighting.    The next room in line for new lighting was the hall bath.     H claims this bathroom,   so I decided to create a fun new look for it along with the new lighting.

Farmhouse Corner Unit from Old Doors

There is a good sized area on the side of the refrigerator that I change the decor out for holidays and seasons.   It is the busiest intersection in the house and I try to keep it fresh.

Simple Valentine Mantel

Packing away all the Christmas decor has been OVERWHELMING to say the!    The thought of getting out Valentine totes and unpacking them has not been very appealing to me,   so I decided to just put out a few simple pieces to just give a hint of Valentine's Day.

Laundry Room Makeover Reveal

The laundry room makeover all began with the washer deciding it would stop working the first week in December.    It had been about 7 years since the laundry room had been painted,  so we decided that when we took out the old washer and dryer we would paint over the pale yellow walls with a fresh coat of white paint .

My First Big Project for 2020....the Utility Room

Our washer decided to stop working the first week in December........wouldn't you know it would quit working around the holidays!    We decided to replace both the washer and dryer since they were over 15 years old.     The new ones we picked out were a special order and didn't come in until after Christmas.     In fact they won't be delivered until tomorrow.
