Change

I guess change was in the air this month! I've been planning to paint the upstairs bathroom since we bought this house in Oct. 2006. I even bought the paint at that time!

I don't know what finally motivated me to get out the brushes and get it done, but...

Here is what it looked like on Jan. 19, 2009, when a guy named Dubya was President...




...and now? Aaahh. A breath of fresh air!





(See, Internets, how I am keepin' it real? That's right, I left the crap on the sink and the ugly kids' towels on the towel bar, what of it?)

That's the same color in both of my bathrooms in my old house AND both of the bathrooms in the new house. Great minds think alike!

You are so totally real! Which is what makes you a true blogger. The blue is lovely. Good choice. See my latest post for my blogger's bacon challenge. I bet you could come up with something great.

I've had a half-painted bedroom for two years. So I asked myself if your pictures would motivate me to get out the brushes, but I haven't heard back yet.

Love the new color! Ahem...you call that a mess. That what your kids left? That there? Nope.

Nice!!! There's nothing like fresh paint. The blue and the white are a classic combination.

Ha- even the blogger bathrooms were brighter and more beautiful after Dubya left...

I like that you keep it real in your photos! It makes it seem more real and less staged-for-the-internet.
