I Think I Have Given My Blog The Wrong Name

So, I'm starting to think I should have name this blog Adventures in Wrecking My Nest or something like that. The Mr and I were talking last week about getting new living room furniture (none of the furniture matches... or even meshes well together, for that matter.), but after looking around at three or four (or seven) furniture stores and thinking it over some more we came to the conclusion that we could make our bathroom really look the way we want for about the same amount of money. We thought that would be the better option.

What do I want to do in the bathroom? Well, the tile needs to go, the fake tile needs to go, and the sink desperately needs to go. We have talked about what kind of sink to get and whether those fabulous marble tiles might be under the sink cabinet. I was pretty sure that the cabinet was not original to the house and that the tile would be under the cabinet. This morning I decided to sneak (not much sneaking going on in this tiny house, but...) in there and do this:

Yeah, I don't think this cabinet is going to be worth even donating when we are through with it.

Plaster walls... with a big chink in them. Where there is one, there will be more... Ugg, that's going to be a job!

Okay, here we go! I think I can get a view of the flooring now!

Good news!! That picture shows the first layer of linoleum! They must have still had the pedestal or wall mounted sink (which I'm guessing is what was originally installed when the house was built) at that time. So there must be the marble floor underneath.

I'm having visions of the perfect bathroom. And it looks eerily similar to this picture I saw at The Inspired Room. She posted about decorating in black and white not too long ago... and, anyway, here she is:

Isn't she wonderful (I almost typed fabulous, but I think I'm wearing that word out, so I'll let it rest)!! We found a similar sink today, and those are almost my tiles. My heart starts beating a little faster whenever I see this picture!

Ohh, pretty! I love bathrooms and redoing them. Why is that? Not that I've ever done more than buy new towels for a bathroom but there's just so much fun stuff you can do with accessories and cool sinks.
Can't wait to see what you do!

Your bathroom is going to be GORGEOUS!!! And that bathroom in the photo-- someone actually HAS that bathroom???

With all this work you're doing, you starting to get me inspired to do some of my own. Almost.
