Some Finishing Touches

Quarter round finishes up the shower. We used PVC quarter round to give a finished look in the master bathroom and it's plastic so there won't be any moisture issues.The door is trimmed in and you can see the quarter round in this photo also.
I love our crown molding! This is in the master bedroom and you can also see we did the trim for the window in the same style as the french doors. Thanks to Joy, the Bamboo color paint and the Navy blue paint have a straight edged line!
I'll leave you with a photo of Morial sporting her latest hair cut! She rolled in something foul at my grandparents house and I had to trim it out so then she had patches missing... I had to take her to the groomer to have it evened out.
Look how cute she is!

Change in Plans...

So I called my mom in a little bit of a panic while she was on the plane home from Philadelphia.
While I liked both the Navy and the Brown, they were competing and it was not the soothing and relaxing combination I was hoping for. My panic however was how to choose and what to change it to...
Luckily my mom is awesome and spent the day Saturday helping me even though she had just arrived back in town at 10pm Friday. Below are the swatches of color I used.
Calvary is the navy blue on my walls, Bamboo is the wall color that replaced the brown and Wicker is the ceiling color and will be the trim and accent color. I had white on the ceiling before.
I decided to go with the navy instead of the brown for two main reasons. First, the master bathroom has a blue color scheme and second, I have a lot of other rooms in my house that are brown or a close variation. Plus our quilt that my mother-in-law, Joy, made is blues and greens.
Here's what I will be doing the next couple weekends when I return from Reno. This is the base board, door and window trim and crown molding. Here's a closer look at the crown molding.
That is all for now, I'll update again after I get back from The Body Shop at Home conference in RENO!! I can hardly wait, this is my first conference and I have heard they are amazing!!

Overdue Master Bedroom & Bathroom Update!

The beginning of the tub surround. We have it finished now but my camera battery died so I don't have any new pictures of it yet.

Yeah Paint!! I was up priming until 8pm after a full 8 hour work day Monday and then last night I was addicted to the progress I was making so I didn't wash my hands and finish up until 9:30pm last night!!

The brown will be on two walls and the navy blue will be on the other two walls. I completed the first coat of the brown in the bedroom and closet and painted the ceiling with a fresh coat of white! Tonight I am having friends over to watch So You Think You Can Dance - it's the finale! But I plan to paint until they get there :) I'll update again as soon as I get a new camera battery!
