Easy to forget

It's so easy to forget what the house used to look like. Sure, our improvements are taking forever to accomplish, but when I look back at what we started out with, I get some hope. Case in point: our master bathroom. It has been torn apart ever since we moved in. Here's whyI despise that wallpaper. I couldn't live with it one more day than I had to. Of course, I started to rip it off, but never finished it. It was torn apart for almost 2 years! Then, while I was off vacationing, my wonderful husband worked for hours and hours, to get it ready for paint. Wednesday I spent all morning painting. Thursday I spend all morning cleaning. And now, voila! My half-finished master bathroom.There's still plenty to be done: new mirrors, faucets, countertops and sinks, towel racks, toilet roll holder, and blinds. We also want to do something about that brass shower enclosure, but haven't quite figured out how to make it look better, without flat-out replacing it. Maybe you know of some special type of paint we can use??

Wow! Go Joe! It looks great!!! I don't have any idea what to do about the brass - but I agree that something should be done if at all possible. Good luck!

You've been working hard this week, Jessica.
