This weekend I flew back down to TN to surprise my mom for her birthday.
And yes, she was very surprised!
There is such satisfaction when you accomplish a goal like surprising someone.
My flight got delayed for almost 2 hours so I didn’t get to mom’s house til after 10 pm.
She was asleep on the couch when I got there.
My brother (Thanks Reid) made up some excuse that he needed a tool…well he actually did…so mom would open the garage door and turn off the alarm.
I walked in and it took about a minute for her to realize who I was and what I was doing there. But the reaction was priceless. I am so glad that I was able to do this.
Now because last week I was recovering from being gone for a week and a half and then I was having fun with mom this weekend. I sadly do not have a project to show you this week.
But I do offer you a peace offering…
If you recall me saying a while back about my mom redoing the house A LOT, and that every time I come back there is something new with her house. I was not lying.
So my peace offering to you, are some rooms that my mom has redone.
I give you two bathrooms and a grandbaby nursery.
And YES they are inspiring!
First I will show you the downstairs bath. That we will now call the red bath.
Sadly I do not have before pictures, but just picture a plain ol’ tan bathroom with no personality.
You got the picture in your head?
Alright now here is the after…
Now why would I call that a red bathroom?
Well let’s take a look at the ceiling.
For some strange reason the color is coming across as deep maroon or something but it is actually a deep red. Like the color of the red towel that is hanging.
Isn’t it so pretty?!
We decided that something need to be about to toilet, so I grabbed some white frames from the hall and we ripped out the pictures that were in it.
Just a little something that won't take away from wall paper but still add a touch of decor.
Now we will move on to the upstairs bath.
You may remember this bath when mom and I built the mirror frame for it.
Here is the updating version of that bathroom.
And guess what?
It is beadboard wallpaper!
Do you ever share a bath with a bunch of family or friends and not sure which towel is yours after you get out of the shower?
Mom came up with a solution!
You number the towels!
Now we can move on to the nursery.
You may have noticed a door between the towels.
That door used to lead to a long closet.
After mom got some people to come in a knock out a wall, it is now a grandbaby nursery!
To help the room feel bigger she painted the ceiling the same color as the walls.
Hope you all enjoyed it!
