All the rooms thus far on the home tour (front, dining, kitchen) have had some kind of change made to them.
We have made zero changes to the hallway and the bathroom. It’s shameful.
We are going to do board and batten down the hallway and into the bathroom at the same time.
I have not picked a set time to do this, but if I had to guess, I’d say sometime while we are working on the kitchen renovation.
I’m really embarrassed and self conscious about the hallway and bathroom. Promise not to laugh when I come out of the dressing room? *deep breath* Okay…
The hall has serious potential. Like the girl in that Freddie Prinze Jr movie. She’s All That? She is. She=hallway. All we need to do is take off her glasses and get her contacts. Then she will be the hot girl.
Now, take your first door on the left. It’s time.
Upon moving in: major grunge. And not the good kind.
With our junk:
Not much better. Let’s take a closer look at all the atrocities. Someone in the past tried to paint the cabinetry. They failed, and gave up. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked “WHYYYY?!” It makes no sense.
Ew gross. But the biggest offender is the half hearted palm tree wallpaper.
Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe borders were a “thing.” They’re just so TACKY. I get it… fads come and go. In 20 years from now us bloggers will look back and be like, “Why were we so obsessed with stencils? They’re like a hot-foot-forest.”
Before I write my next sentence I need to tell you about me. I, like many others, have an issue saying the “M” word. Do you know which one I am talking about? It rhymes with Shoist. In this house, we replace all “M” words with “juicy.”
Due to the juicy-ness of the bathroom, parts of the wallpaper fell off, while others cling bitterly. Leaving it looking extra trash-tastic.
Every now and then I get a compulsion to yank on it. It never results well. Like peeling a sunburn. Why even try?
Although big bathroom changes are far off, I do have an end goal in mind. I will end on an inspiring note.
It’s clean. It’s bright. I like it. I could get used to it.
What room in your house have you not touched at all?
