A big thanks

I'm posting this to let my "inlaws" (must use quotes because Jeff and I aren't married) know how much I appreciate all their help over the past 2 weeks. They drove 14 (or so) hours from Prince Edward Island and have worked SOOOOOO hard to help Jeff and I with some renovations of our house. Flora did all the cooking (can't tell you how happy that made me) and helped me renovate 2 of the bathrooms and Jim did tons of work in the basement (we've been dying for a finished basement) and a bunch of plumbing and electrical in the bathrooms. They'll be leaving Wednesday and Jeff and I will be sad to see them go. (We don't get to see them very often). So I thought I'd post some pics to show everyone all the hard work they've been doing and to say thanks to the best "inlaws" a girl could ask for.


And here's my pet project - coming up with inexpensive artwork for the powder room. Thanks Jo for the great idea of printing 1's and 2's (in case you forget what you're doing in the powder room, it's like a reminder ;) )

Wow Kim, those bathrooms look like they are out of magazines! That was so very nice of your in-laws to lend a helping hand.
The "1" and "2" prints look great, and I had to laugh when I read the text that you printed them on!

Thanks erin and jessie! Sad thing is I still have my bathroom to do. And I'm soooooo tired. I think I'll wait a couple of weeks - get some motivation back.

Kim the results are fabulous. That blue looks so good. we'll have to think really hard to top these for your bathroom. Something edgy but glam. It's amazing what you guys have achieved on such a small budget.

Thanks everybody!! Jo - get that creative brain of yours working. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

So pretty! I especially love the color in the top one and the 1's and 2's are hysterical.

Yeah Jo - I have 3 bathrooms I have to do next month and I'm going to need plenty of ideas...hint hint.

great job! i love the idea of framing the 1's and 2's in the bathroom (or should i say, loo). . .especially the little rhyme to go with ;) did you put in new cabinets or paint over exisiting ones? in any case, they both look really good.

6 Mar 2007 | Unregistered CommenterJHAYNE

Thanks!! The cabinets were horrible yellow stained oak - and an odd size so we just painted over them. They look alot better than I thought they would.

I am pretty jealous! I only have one bathroom, and its pretty boring compared to yours. But we did it neutral, because of the house being for sale.

i have to say that is probably the cutest + funnest artwork I have every seen. So made me smile!

6 Mar 2007 | Unregistered Commenterkat

These both look AMAZING, Kim. I love the background that you printed the ones and twos on! Nothing like a witty bathroom and better than "Poo and Pee" spelled out, no doubt about it!!! Brilliant.
