Points to Ponder ...

  • "My children may bicker, and I may—almost certainly will—complain. But the bickering and the griping are chaff, and what’s left when the winds of time carry them away are the golden kernels I want to savor..." --Melissa Wiley

niiiiiice... living vicariously through your pictures until we get ours done! :)

Oh Eileen!
I just love, love, love it! Does the Chief make housecalls?

God Bless!

Wow, good luck! Quite an undertaking...

It looks wonderful!

Who thought of installing vintage floor tiles in your bathroom? It would be better if contrasting colors are added. The color combination would be more catchy and pleasant to the eyes! Anyway, did you share the results here after it was done?

Thanks for your comment, Chase, and welcome! Actually, no, I don't think I ever did post a final picture -- and too bad, too, because it's just lovely. The wainscoting is a barely off-white ("polar bear," I think it's called), and the upper wall is a washed denim blue color. The simple cabinetry is espresso, and the sink a pretty vintage-look in white (reminiscent of a pedestal sink, yet inset into convenient cabinet storage). Style-wise, it fits our 1860s farm house beautifully, and nearly 4 years later, I still love it! My only regret is that we didn't adequately invest in the cabinetry -- got them stock at Home Depot, and they're just not nice enough for the rest of the room (and not holding up well to the level of splashing in which little boys engage ...). If I had to do it over (or if my ship ever comes in!), I'd get high quality cabinets -- same color scheme -- and a marble countertop/sink combo, hopefully in a similar design. Maybe I'll add an "after photo" here one of these days, in case anyone else stops by! :)
