Master Bathroom Supplies

We did a lot of shopping around to find the tile and bathroom goodies for our new Master Bath.
This is what we ended up with:

Light/fan (Home Depot)
Vanity Light (Home Depot)
Towel Bar, Ring and TP Holder (Target)
His and Hers Robe Hooks (Kohl's - similar here)
Mirror (Amazon)
Faucet (Lowe's)
Calacatta Glazed Porcelain Tile (Lowe's)
Carrara Pinwheel accent tile (Lowe's)
Shower Head (Lowe's)
Pedestal Sink (Lowe's)
Toilet (Lowe's)

We were afraid of painting this bathroom too dark but figured a charcoal gray would be fine since there's a TON of white throughout the space. It also didn't hurt that we put maybe an excessive amount of lighting in this tiny bathroom. We went back and forth on shades and ultimately, we decided on Behr Anonymous for the color and we couldn't be happier.

Time to accessorize and decorate! I cannot wait! That's the most fun part!!

Peeking in the Windows

Although, this was one of the last projects I worked on for the wedding and I felt like I totally half-assed it because I waited so long to start it, it is really one of my favorites!

I absolutely could not be happier with the way it turned out. The window were a gift from my brother and sister-in-law. Thankfully, they just put all new windows in their home and were looking to unload these out of their basement (too bad I don't have 30 more weddings to plan because that's how many more windows they need to unload!)

I picked them up from my brother's on a rainy day which really helped rinse off the soapy water I cleaned them with. I did a quick once-over because these babies were practically falling apart on me - the lead paint was so chippy and disintegrated before my very eyes so I had to be really careful while wiping them down. Then I just windexed the glass and called it good.

Next, I printed table assignments on linen paper (upcylced letter-head from when we had a name change at work... it was going to get trashed! I couldn't have that) and used a Martha Stewart craft punch to make the corners look prettier. Then I taped them to the back of the glass.

Because I didn't like that you could still kind of see the tape on the glass, I decided to put a layer of (wrapping) paper in each pain of glass.

We had 3 windows with 8 panes each (a total of 24 panes) and only 23 tables, so there was a left over space where I hung a glitter glass 'D' with sparkly ribbon and lined with gold stag wrapping paper.

This was by far my favorite project for the wedding. Everything turned out wayyy better than I was expecting and I loved the way it looked in the entrance of our reception.

Thanks Jenn and Gary for the great additions to our decor :) I can't wait to doctor these bad boys up a little more and use them for gallery frames in our stairwell.

Oh Christmas Tree!

Fewer things in life get me more excited than Christmas, and one of my very favorite things about the holiday is decorating the tree (or 2, or 3)! Since we're a little low on time for the tree, I've done a little prowling and come across a bunch of really cute evergreens that make me semi-ok with the fact that we may only get a tree up this year for a week or 2.

 This is great, you can add a tree to every room! They also have super cute fabric that matches this tree! You know if I had time, I'd be making duvet covers for every room out of that shit!

 Speaking of blankets for every room... how bout this adorable baby blanket!? I don't have a baby, but that won't stop me from draping this over the couch, or the end of my bed. I just love it! Add a red striped pillow and it's all set!

I'm a sucker for garland... if you can drape it, I want it. Plain and simple! I love mixing multiple garlands together. I like buying them. I love making them... and this one... it's super cute and like nothing I've seen before! Need it.
