Gray Matters

Over the course of the week, (post work) we dyed the curtains from the living room. Taking them from white to a light gray color. They have a little more of a contemporary touch to them. But still feel vintage-y with the sheer design. They are also a little less prominent against the windows.

Though we realized that the curtains were a bit too wide. So we recruited my mom to cut (and sew) them down a bit. I would post a picture, but someone sewed the casings closed so we can't hang them yet.

We also asked our wonderful, personal seamstress to recover a couple pillows. There are many more pillow projects on the horizon. But this was a simple recovering so they would match our new bedroom color scheme (or what will be our new color scheme once we paint and such).

Today our glass shower enclosure was installed. It looks so good that it even inspired my mom to replace theirs with a similar enclosure. It needs to set for 24-48 hours. But after that time we will be able to use our master shower finally!

Kevin also picked up our over the toilet storage. But we decided since we were having people in the bathroom today to wait until they were finished to install it. Hopefully we can get that up one night this week so I can organize our bathroom stuff already.

As the renovation projects are winding down, the decorating projects are just beginning. The next of those on the list is painting. But don't worry, we have plenty more reno projects in the near future. First up is revamping the downstairs bathroom to be a half bath/laundry room combo. I'm already over having to go down to the basement to do laundry.

We're getting close to being able to post some final after pictures!
