The Bathroom: Details

20130530-214341.jpgOk, so you may have read this post (if you didn’t, go do it. I’ll wait.). So one of my biggest annoyances when I find an idea that I love is the complete lack of details. I took me weeks to pick this color blue. It was incredibly frustrating, so I vowed when I started this that there would be absolutely no detail that wasn’t shared.

 The Storage

The bathroom has NO storage, so we needed to be really creative. One of my favorite parts of the room is the towel storage above the door. The two larger shelves are melamine board from Lowe’s. And if you weren’t already aware, they’ll cut wood for you for free, which is great if you are not particularly handy. The smaller one is also a melamine board and just happened to be the exact right length (score one for the good guys). Hubbin got the brackets from Home Depot on one of the fifty trips I sent him on when I decided to stupidly redo the living room and bathroom at the same time. (In my defense, 3 trips were because we bought the wrong size blinds because he can’t measure a window even though he worked at Pella the tape measure was “wrong”). I digress…

The Bathroom

Now mind you, while yes, I am a lazy mom, I also discovered Pinterest.  And Pinterest is making me a better (and more tired, if we’re being honest) mother/wife/woman.  Mind you that I don’t have this easily upgradable house.  We have a 40’s Cape, and there is one bathroom.

Let me talk to you about having one bathroom when you’re married.  There is no room for romance when you have one bathroom.  Why?  At some point, one of you will have the stomach flu when the other one is taking a hot, steamy shower.   And there is nothing romantic about that.

Making matters worse, it’s the size of a coffin.  At the largest point, it is as wide as the bathtub.  Seriously.  There isn’t room in there for a person and a sneeze.  It’s the worst bathroom ever!  A few years ago, we “redid” the bathroom.  And I tell you, I must have had a seizure or something when I picked out the colors.  I don’t know what on earth I was thinking.  They are AWFUL.

The First One

So here we are…my first blog post. You should know some things about me. I love ellipses…you’ll find out pretty shortly. And my husband and kids too, by the way. The husband is great and while I’d love to put something funny in here, he really is just awesome. My oldest kid is 8. She’s an awesome kid. The baby is a totally different story. She is 16 months and full of piss and vinegar and I like to narrarate her inner monologue, so she’s super sarcastic too. Very funny kid, that one. that’s her in the picture, making her “WTF, no she DIDN’T” face at daycare.

I’d like to wow you with interesting stories of success against all odds, but in all reality, I had a sweet childhood. Two parents, one sister. She looks like a thinner, prettier, more successful version of me, so that’s fun. But really, she’s great. She’s the story of success against all odds, but we can save that for another day (or maybe not, it’s my blog).
