PINK Saturday, Episode nine~

Your host is Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. To enjoy more pink, visit her blog for a list of participants~

Today I'm sharing a TINY sneak peek at our PINK bathroom. I have a window sill! I can't tell you how excited I am, I just love it. Kevin did a wonderful job. (Thank you sweetie!) He also added trim above the window. Much, much better.
MUCH more cottage~y and period correct!

Katie approves~
and I've since painted it.

Yes, just one teasing picture, that's all you get for now.
But remember the before? The sink was cut into the bottom trim of the window... no sill... ugly tile? Kevin moved the sink and electric over. Made the trim on the window skinnier. I painted the tile and sink, and he put up the beadboard.
I just finished patching and painting over the hole where the light fixture used to be. So the light and sink are now more centered on that wall between the shower and window, instead of all crammed together like this.

I know it seems to be taking FOREVER, but we're only working on it on weekends, IF we don't have plans. I was busy today, and we're busy tomorrow and Sunday. So even tho there's not much left to do, it's taking an eternity. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Hope to share the big reveal soon! Be sure to click on the bathroom labels at the end if you missed the other posts~ you must be bored or interested to do so of course, lol!
Have a great pink weekend all~

Oh! How exciting! You are lucky to have someone to do all of the labor for free. Your Hubs must be a pretty talanted guy!

This is looking so good! Mr. H peeled a little paper off in our master bath. It is the most difficult paper we have ever had to remove. Check back with me in maybe five years ;-)
