White box update

In our master bathroom, we have a separate, small room for our toilet. Before I made any updates, it was basically a white box.

After I had painted the main bathroom area, I decided to go ahead and tackle the toilet area as well. But, I wanted a slightly different, maybe more fun color. I chose Dancing Mist from Valspar - you can see the bathroom and toilet area paint colors together below. The master bath color is less gray in person, so they work really well together.

It's the little things...

Today, I decided to do a small update that I feel has a lot of impact on the outside of our home.

Our outdoor lighting fixtures were a mixed bag of rusty, faded brass...

...and a weird pinky bronze finish that got lost in our brick...

Upstairs construction

The title of this post is a little misleading. However, I did use a miter box, saw, drill, screws, wall anchors, a level, liquid nails, a hammer, and finishing nails - I consider that a construction project!

Upstairs we have a lot of built ins. There are two that caddy corner in the far corner of the room. The problem was that there was a hole (down to the floor) where the built ins met. Paul (one of our cats) loves to climb and regulary jumps onto the shelves, and has started to investigate the hole! I can't imagine the chaos that would ensue if he got stuck down there.

So, construction project!
