Rise and shine! We’re up with the sun this morning to get an early start in the land of dusty floors and cottage dreams. I’m drowning in our bathroom remodel guys. Last I wrote, the cottage was being overtaken by our bath remodel tools and supplies. Little did I know, the clutter and junk would be settling in and multiplying. Holy cow this place is in complete chaos. I was planning on writing a post loaded with whining and moaning about the ends and outs of a reno. Ya know, the dust, the grime, the spur of the moment decisions. Some decisions I thought I would have the luxury of making near the end of this craziness needed making overnight in order for other things to happen on time. Nothing terrifies me more than a spur of the moment decision.
Anyhow, after thinking about it all, what really came to mind was how thankful I am to have this little cottage. And how exciting it is to be treating the bathroom to a dose of classic cottage style. So somehow it seems to me that it’s all a matter of perspective. I have nothing to be complaining about and so much to be grateful for. And that’s it.
The classic subway tiles that will be going up soon along with those little marble hex floor tiles have me grinning ear to ear. The vintage cabinet that needs a bit of love and will soon be making friends with our vintage tub and sink got me dancing a jig around all the junk in our living room. Man I love that tub and coordinating sink. Would it be weird if part of the reason I really wanted this place when we were house hunting was that cool old tub and super cool old sink.
So things are moving along and we have progress! I’m just hanging out on cloud nine with the soaring birds and sunshine. I’m sure it’s just about time for me to pull my head out of the clouds and head out for paint and primer. I’m thinking white, but maybe pale gray. On the bright side the wall color decision is one I have some time to mull over. Mr. Manly is waiting on the primer though. So I’ll wrap things up.
Just one last thing, I have to mention poor Paisley. It’s a hard job barking at contractors all day while still keeping the household running smoothly too. She’s all tuckered out. The work life of a miniature schnauzer can be exhausting! Grin!
