living in a rental can really be a bummer.
especially when you are the "creative" type...
allen and i built our first home just 2 1/2 years after
we were out of college, and spent the next 8 years
building another home and remodeling three.
so, the transition to this rental house has been
yes, i admit, there are days when i feel sorry for myself.
when i stare at the vinyl floors and the ugly wallpaper
i just know for things to look GOOD, it would take an
overhaul that we cannot afford and frankly, don't really have
the mental energy for right now.
but then i spotted a little bathroom makeover that
really got my wheels spinning.
just over a year ago, jennifer boles,
author of the blog peak of chic,
transformed a bathroom
without ripping out the floors. or the ugly shower.
or the laminate countertops.
and it looks fabulous.
after seeing these pictures, i am highly inspired to do
something with one of the two bathrooms on our main floor.
didn't she do a great job?
you can see more details of this transformation here.
