Bathroom Reno Design Board

You may be sick of hearing about my bathroom reno.

Quite frankly, so am I.

Back in January, Mom and I hand-painted the ceiling, an ode to Best in Show, if you will.

We added a bulldog to the scene, for good measure.

Wilma's feelings would have been hurt otherwise.

And after a long awaited renovation, the end is almost in sight.

Here's what it will look like.

On other, more interesting, fronts...Do we have any Fiddle Leaf Fig experts in the audience?  

I have a large one in my home that seems to be not long for this earth, and I'm not much of a green thumb.  Confirmation came when googling FLF care, apparently they are "easy-keepers".  Mine is losing leaves and turning brown.  If I was dying, that's probably what I'd do, too.

Lastly, I'll leave you with this soul-stirring commencement speech by Anne Lamott at UC Berkley last month. It's the kind that is printed out and hung in cubes across America for a little extra motivation.  In a blogosphere where uniqueness is no longer unique, it's a cool glass of lemonade.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!  And read this speech.  It will make you remember what you're made of.

  1. I read the speech, it was great. I don't have a green thumb for inside plants...sorry.

  2. Your bathroom is going to look great! Maybe your FLF needs more sun?

  3. I can't wait to see your bathroom! And I love the saying!

  4. I've always loved that wallpaper, and I need to search through your archives to check out the ceiling! I can't imagine anything less than fabulous from you two artists!

  5. Love what you are doing here. Can't wait to see it.
    Beautiful speech excerpt.
    Happy Friday.

  6. Love the paint color you have chosen -reminds me of my dining room and the artwork will truly pop.

  7. Adore the way the bath is shaping up!!

    That is a most wonderful quote from Anne Lamott!
