It's A Messy Process

Re-doing is not always glamorous.  In fact it often means living with a mess while the beauty happens.  And that is exactly what we are knee deep in right now.

As you know we are doing some work on our daughter's bathroom.  And because we also have other things to focus on, like life for example, we have yet to complete the process.  But we are off to a good start.

The paint is mostly on the walls.

The wainscoting is 1/2 way done.

And some accessories have been gathered and purchased.

But you put that all together in one space and all you get is a big mess!

And the truth is this mess is probably going to stay for a few weeks since we have family in town.  But my daughter can still get to her Elmo seat - as long as she is wearing shoes and watches out for tools.

The bath tub is still working and she still has her ducks in a row (sorry...couldn't resist).

And we just ignore the fact that every time she walks into the space she says "Mom...I no like blue.  I want orange."  Yup...to many decorators for one family!

So although it is a messy process, it all pays off in the end.
