A Sneak Peek...



This picture here is a little hint of what the bathroom will look like.  I know, I know. This is supposed to be a masculine boys bathroom.... oops!! My oldest son actually liked the idea of birds since we enjoy watching them, so I am not being overly evil.... muahahahahahaha!!!  We painted the walls a periwinkle color and the wainscoting is an antique white. Most of the accessories are spray painted in an antique white. We found the towel racks at Hobby Lobby for 50% off in black wrought iron, and since they are beautiful... we bought them and spray painted them. I will still need to get the towels and we need to second coat a couple spots and finish the vanity, but I can't get that done until this Saturday. 7 people (with only one diapered!!) and one bathroom is not a pretty sight. I need a few days of two bathrooms before I take one away again. I think this Saturday I will paint it after the kids go to bed. There really isn't a whole lot left, so I don't think it would take too long. Yes, I know... famous last words. It is hard to get a good picture in this bathroom as there is no natural light. Still, I think it looks pretty good. I am surprised the boys are so excited about the color. I thought they would think it was too girly, but they like it. 

It is amazing how a decent paint job can make a bathroom look so much cleaner.
Mr. Hunny is taking pictures of the kids and I keep hearing things like, "Mickey, don't chew a hole through the sofa!!", so I had better get to it. I have lost enough seating areas to small, teething children and they are getting to be quite expensive. :0)
Have a super spiffy day!!!

    Love the periwinkle blue color (a new favorite of mine). Is that fabric or wallpaper? Anyway, it's gorgeous and will look lovely in your bathroom. Can't wait to see pics of the completed room!

    P.S. I wouldn't plant anything that would be a bee haven by the clothesline!

    Oh, I love what you've shown so far. Can't wait to see it all finished. Beautiful color choice and I really like the bird and nest. My kids would love this too, as we've always enjoyed watching the birds so much!
