In the past week I have barely made 1 placemat. I have spent almost all of my time on my wallpaper removal task. Chris is very motivated to paint and I want to take full advantage of it! Here's where we are at the moment.
The master bathroom is done! This photo is take from the bedroom so you can see the orange color of the bedroom against the deep purple of the bathroom. The quilt (hanging in the bedroom) is reflected in the mirror.
Picking the right shade of purple was the challenge because of the flooring. I finally used my fabric swatches to get the right color.
I know that gold fixtures are really out of style right now but I'm doing this redecorating spree on a budget. I was willing to replace the towel hooks and toilet paper bar but I wasn't about to buy new shower doors, mirror and lighting. Everything for this room, including some new rugs, was about $200. It's done.
So I moved right into the guest bathroom and got the last of the paper off yesterday! This bathroom could really use a total gut and remodel but it's used less than 10 days a year and I can't justify that expense and mess. We (Chris) will paint the cabinet and the walls. I have bought new towel and paper fixtures and a new light fixture because the current one is hideous.
The color palette for that bathroom is based on this art quilt made by my friend, Summerset. We bought all of the paint yesterday and I have a plan for dyeing the shower curtain. Hopefully that will be enough to make the almond colored fixtures acceptable for a while longer.
While Chris starts painting the bathroom I have moved into the office. I'm taking a couple of days off from paper removal because my hands are raw but I will get back to it just to get it all over with! This room will only need paint and I will need to do something about the love seat/pull-out bed. The sage green color isn't going to match in here. There might be a slipcover in my future.
So there, no sewing but a ton of productivity and there is some color. Check out what everyone else is doing over at Patchwork Times.
