To The Window, To The Wall!!

Get low, get low, get low. To the windowwwwww, to the wall. Now back, back, back it up.

Okay sorry, I'll snap out of my Lil' John haze. I'm just so excited- we made some amazing 
progress this weekend on the master bathroom renovation! From the windowwwwwww
 (last weekend)... to the wall (this weekend).

So here's your weekly "we-worked-on-the-bathroom-all-weekend-long-and-if-I-don't-share-with-
someone-I'll cry!" master bathroom renovation post!

The most exciting work we did was to install a brand new wall in our bathroom, in the form of a pocket door enclosure to house a little area for the toilet (or as you fancy people say it, the WC). How fabbbb is it?!



(Excuse me, ladder? Can't you see I'm trying to take a pic for the readers??)

I really, really love it, people! I am so glad we chose to build this little room.

Installation of the door was just as easy as following the instructions on the pocket door trim kit
 (bought at Lowes)... says the girl who absolutely didn't help in the installation process.
 David or my bro-in-law, Nate, can fill you in if you have any questions!

Is that the beginning of some drywall I see on the wall? Oh heck yes.

And... wait for it... we also stocked up on some beaaaautifulll tileeeeee!!

(More on it next week!)

And that handy husband of mine worked out ALL of the electrical kinks in the bathroom that I 
ranted about last week. Like, every single new light switch and electrical plug is placed, hooked up 
and working! How amazing is that?! 

That's an outlet. With a little green light. Which means it works. As in, my hairdryer is ready to be plugged in!

So electrical is pretty much done! We just have to install our new lighting (so cute, get excited!) later this week. Electrical? Check! Another thing off the list.

So there's your weekly bathroom wrap up, friends! DEFINITELY seeing a light at the end of the tunnel :)
A big shout out goes to David and Nathan- you guys are really amazing!!

Guess what. Tuesday is the first day of February. Can you even believe it?! One month in 2011 already gone! Whew, time flies by when you're having fun ;)

To kick off the start of the month, I'm starting a new series.

To be perfectly honest, I'm kind of on the iffy side with Valentine's Day. Let's just say that I refuse to let David buy me any teddy bears or red roses. I know, I know- bah humbug! 

But that doesn't stop us from being sappy year-round. 

Soooo, in case you are looking for some Valentine's Day ideas (or anniversary or birthday or just an every day kind of I love you), then I've got some great Not-So-Valentiney ideas for you. Can't wait to share!

  6. I'm jumping up and down for you! Let me be honest, pocket doors intimidate me, I always thought they would be really difficult to install. Love, love puffy heart the tile.

    I'm with you on the Valentine's thing. I really don't need a stuffed Teddy bear, give this girl a power tool ;)

  7. I am so impressed that you and your husband installed your own pocket door! We have one going into our toilet area and it is a privacy must now! Kind wait to see the rest.

  8. Yay! What progress! Dry wall and light switches are definitely exciting things to see...brings back a lot of memories from our remodel. And I love the tile...gorg! :)

  9. Awesome! I bet you are thrilled with the progress! We are doing a mini remodel of our masterbath. We got the tiled laid today, and I am so happy! I can't wait to see your finished bathroom!

  11. you totally just brought me back to sophomore year of college in a beer filled basement house party with the lil' wayne reference :) yay for all the progress!

  12. First off, love the song. I always think of The Proposal when I hear it (: And now I'll think of you, too. You made huge progress, girl. I bet you're so happy. The hearts made me laugh!
    Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the series!!

  13. Glad you stopped the lyrics before the um, well you know, part. :) Love the tile sneak peek and the pocket door looks awesome! Completing the electrical is a huge step! Looking forward to seeing your fixture.

    Can't wait to see your Valentine's ideas!

  14. LOL on Emily's comment. Will be singing this song all night. Thanks girl! So excited for you. You can feel your sense of relief and accomplishment jump off the screen. I love how putting in the pocket door was a piece of cake . . . for the boys, that is! Excited for your new series. I am with you.

  15. Would love to see us all dancing to that song right now! Yay on your new door!

  16. that is a bonafide pocket door!!! woo hoo!!!! i love those things...I'll need some deets if it's not that hard. I'd love to sanction off, I mean, give the kids more privacy in their little nook

  17. It definitely took me a few minutes to sing that song in my head before I could concentrate on your post! Haha!!

    I'm so excited for the progress that y'all have made!! Congrats!! It is looking so good and is only going to look better!!

  18. YAY door!
    It's fantastic...really. Kitchen remodel in T-minus 13 (ish) days and counting. I can't wait to share with you!
    And no, we don't celebrate Valentine's or Sweetest or whatever other Hallmark holiday has been created. We do the sappy love bit all year long.
    Happy Monday to you!

  19. Ok your post title has me dying laughing! My husband loves Little John, I almost bought him a goblet last year for his birthady to put his crunk juice in! So excited about your bathroom! Its going to look awesome!

  20. What great progress! I wish I had some of the same 'mojo' you did this weekend. We got nothing done with our bathroom :( Oh well.. here's to next weekend lol!

    [Thanks for the Lil' John flashback haha].

  21. love that door!!! you must be getting excited at the progress.

  22. YAY for a successful weekend! And for making me laugh with your rendition of Lil John! ;)

    So excited for your Not-So- Valentiney series ... I'm Not-So-Valentiney myself! :)

    I featured you on my blog today ... Hope you'll check it out! :)


  23. looks awesome and now that song is stuck in my head - AGH :)

    can't wait to see the un-valentines specials - we aren't big valentines people around here either, but I have managed to infuse way too many hearts into my decor this year! LOL

  24. I had to break it down white-girl style when I saw your post title. My two year old just stared at me blankly like I was insane. Whatever. Sometimes you just have to dance to toddler-inappropriate songs. I looove pocket doors...can't wait to see things start coming together!! xox

  25. guys made a ton of progress! Love the pocket door. I have always wanted one!!! Wish I could say we were productive this weekend, but we couldn't resist the nice weather and went downtown to Atlantic Station for the day Saturday, thinking we'd get stuff done Sunday. Only to end up in two ERs (long story) with our oldest all day!!!

  26. I think we have the same music taste :) That song makes me think of the movie White Chicks :) Your bathroom is turning out beeeuuuutiful! The pocket door rocks- props to your hubby. Who needs roses when you got a man to do your electrical work- now that's love!

  27. I (heart) the pocket door. It's going to be amazing.

    And, now I'm singing that song in my head. Thank you very much. ;)

  28. Great progress! I know you are so excited :)

    Looking forward to your blog series. Have a great week!!

  29. I second that....that song makes me think of Sandra Bullock and Betty White dancing in The Proposal :)

  30. I agree. It's going to look great!!

    All the little bits of progress will add up and you'll be done before you know it... :)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think. I ♥ comments.
