Master Bathroom Makeover: Part 2

Do you remember this?
I know its been ages, I posted Part 1 back in October, but I'm finally going to show you what we did to the rest of my sister's Master Bathroom!

Ok, first off, this is her tiny (and I mean, tiny!) toilet closet.  
Before & After:

(I painted the cabinets in here the same time I did all the others)
We put in a half plank wall first using what's called hardboard.  It comes in big sheets at Home Depot, and we had them cut the strips for us, about 4in wide.  Then we glued them on using liquid nails, and topped it with a small pice of trim.  Then we painted it white, and chose the same gray for the rest of the walls.
I love this look! 

Next we tackled the bathtub!
 We thought it would be really fun to do a beadboard surround above the tub, 
 and put it directly onto the outside of the tub too!  My sister was a little hesistant, but I convinced her and she loved it!
The only thing we did different with this part was that instead of using liquid nails (along with regular nails), we attached it with silicone adhesive.  (Same adhesive that we used for framing the mirrors)
I hated her towel rod too, so we found an old shelf for $12, fixed it up, and replaced the rod
(this is the shelf before we "fixed" it!)
Pretty, huh?!

 We finished off the bathroom makeover by replacing her old light fixture with a crystal chandelier (fake, of course) and adding some of my sister's personal touches!  
I really wish this was MY bathroom!  I think it is just beautiful!!
What do you think?!



Old Fence turned Stocking Holder

Our house doesn't have a fireplace so I struggled this year finding a place to hang our stockings.  Last year I hung them below our TV on the console.  But this year my husband said "NO"!  He hated it last year because they caused the remotes to not work!  Oh, husbands!!

So when I found this old fence gate (for only $5) I thought it just might work!  Plus, it was already green!
It was really dirty and the paint was chipping, so I hosed it down good, then gave it a quick sanding to get the big flakes of paint off.
Then I gave it 2 thick coates of polycrylic, added hooks, then added our stockings!
I was hoping to hang it somewhere, but our house doesn't have a lot of wall space in the family room, so I just leaned it against the wall, underneath Santa!  It works!

May you all have a Merry Christmas!

Holiday Wreaths

This year I made myself a new wreath for my front door, and let me tell you, it was time for a new one!  My old one was, well, old!  And not just old to me!  It was my mom's hand-me-down!  
Here's my new one that I'm thrilled with:

 But since I was so excited with how it turned out, I made a few more!  Ha!

I made this one to hang in my entry way,

this GIANT one for my Mom (who also needed a new one),
 and this lovely for my sister!
 I love how different they all turned out!
