Shading the Children

I started working out at a new place this summer.  I feel very blessed to be a part of such a fabulous group of women making their lives better by taking care of their bodies, minds and spirits ♥

There were only a few curtains in the children's area,
where they so graciously watch them while we sweat away.
I was recently given a HUGE bolt of fabric and I had no idea what I was going to do with it,  until now!!!  

Check out the before and after of the playroom!  

When I arrived in the room there were about 10 little ones or so and they ALL had questions and wanted to "help"...
it was the first time I have worked under such "pressure" ☺

When I finally pulled up the new curtains,
 the OOOOO's and aaaaahhhhh's were PRICELESS ♥
One little girl even proclaimed I want curtains in my room!!! 

SO worth it!!! 

After they were hung the owner requested that we have the door exposed for safety reasons.  
It looks better too!!!

What do you think?!

Bathroom Cabinet Redo

We have lived in our home for 10 years now and we have always wanted to do something different with our bathroom cabinets. 

Needless to say it was at the bottom of the list...
and as we all know the list is long when owning a home.

I FINALLY got around to seeing how a dark stain would take on one of the pieces of wood,
 it looked AWFUL,  as you can see pictured below ☺

My husband and I decided we would go with a color called Dark Granite, from Lowes,
It was dark, not quite black,  PERFECT!!!

Here is the first coat on the backs of the doors...

AND here are the completed cabinets,  I LOVE how it turned out!!!!!

New hinges to match the handles we had recycled from an old dresser long ago discarded...

I LOVE my new bathroom!!!!!

I hope I have inspired you to paint something that you have been putting off for too long.....happy painting ☺
