A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: If you give a girl a drill.

Friday, January 28, 2011

If you give a girl a drill.

If you give a girl a drill....

She will take take down mirrors.

If you give a girl a drill....

she will then decide to paint.

If you give a girl a drill, she will change out a few lights.

If you give a girl a drill, she will have to put up new mirrors.

And so, If you give a girl a drill, she will have a brand new bathroom in a day.


Okay here's the lowdown. 

I didn't get in trouble for taking the mirrors down. In fact, he barely bat an eyelash at it. I'm pretty sure he is quite used to coming home to change. I'm so glad because, to be honest, clowns scare me, and the circus, I'm pretty sure, has clowns.

Bathroom deets:

Wall color: Behr "Cumulus" in Paint plus primer. It took almost one gallon.
Mirrors: Martha Stewart for Home Depot. $49.99 each.
Lights: OUTDOOR wall lights. THAT'S RIGHT. Outdoor lights. Awesomeness at it's finest. $35/each.
Medicine cabinet: last year Goodwill purchase, for $7. THAT'S RIGHT. SEVEN DOLLARS! Oh, that's my half marathon schedule on the mirror....ugh.
Seashells: Bahamas.
Rug: PB, last year.

Cabin fever at it's finest.

In a day? You deserve a drink girlie. It all looks great. Tell me though, did you have any drywall repair after taking down the bar lights? Every time I have done that there was a huge hole behind them. HUGE!

Maybe it's the teacher in me, but I'm loving the "if you give a girl a drill" format of this post. So funny! Your new bathroom looks great. And all in a day? Boy, you don't waste any time. I'm a new follower.
