Please don’t be envious of our new phallic curtains & metallic wallpaper… I may put them on ebay for the highest bidder!! As you can see by my fabric I’m trying to work with the very cool vintage orange sink (which you can’t really see). However, the orange countertops will unfortunately have to go! Erika so found it necessary to photograph me in the new bathroom, so I had to share.
I mentioned several weeks ago that we were in the process of buying a house and then I left you hanging. All this stuff with Chris came up and I didn’t want to steal any attention away from the need for prayer for him. Well, we are scheduled to close on Friday and we are very excited. Not necessarily about the hall bathroom but the house as a whole. It was built in 1968 and just about everything is the same as the day it was built. Morgan’s bedroom has 3 inch plush shag orange carpet (to match this bathroom of course) and all the kitchen appliances are “Harvest Gold”. But with good bones and lots of room for our family we are ready for a major renovation and hopefully a drastic transformation. Our struggle in searching for a house was finding one that we wouldn’t want to move out of any time soon. We moved to Dothan to settle in and the thought of living in a house for a little while and then getting one with an extra bedroom in a few years made my head spin. With six moves in 5 1/2 years I’m surprised I still have a head. Anyway, it has 4 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms (the guy who built it was a plumbing contractor so hence the 5 bathrooms— Morgan will have no excuse for wetting her pants in the house… everywhere you turn there’s a bathroom!) and it has a pool! All of which we’re really excited about. We start the renovation as soon as we close on Friday. Justin wants to start up the chainsaw that afternoon and take down about 1/2 the trees in the yard and I’m all for it… as long as we can then turn our attention inside. I hope to keep our progress updated on here! I’ll post more pictures soon!
