The Big Reveal

Remember 2.5 months ago when I said I was participating in this?
You saw the before here, now it is time for the after!

I know you have been eagerly anticipating... wondering how my little project turned out. I am sure you were more excited for this moment than the season premier of the Office last night

Speaking of The Office, I was so relieved that Jim and Pam finally had their moment. I loved the smiley rain-soaked Jim that returned to the Office for the final weigh-in (I was a little nervous it wouldn't happen).

What was up with the Toby ending - weird, random and not that funny.

One more Office observation. I love HR Holly in all her dorkiness. She seems to have the weirdness of Michael (which can be lovable) without the over-the-top, clueless inappropriateness. I'm sure the writers will have some fun with those two characters!

Yay, The Office is back!

But I digress; for all of you who are completely lost at this point, please keep reading, smile, nod and leave a comment. They make me happy.

Back to the Before and After...
In July I set two goals for myself. They were to

1. Paint the bathroom vanity and
2. Paint a few sea creatures on the walls for added bathroom fun.

Guess what? I completed my goals (granted I finished goal #2 last night so I would be able to say I finished my goals in a truthful, honest-type way, but hey that was the point of this little blog party - accountability).

Here are the lovely before pictures:

And here, drum roll please, are the afters:

I have to say, I am pleased with the final project. What do you think?

That is fabulous! Great job!!! Blessings to you.

Melanie said...

LOVE the blue vanity! It looks amazing!

I love the vanity. All of it is cute, but thats an adventure that turned out awesome!!!

And, I was SO excited about Jim and Pam. Cute cute. But I am afraid something bad will happen just to keep the drama going.

I love the fish & whale on the walls. How creative! : )

Very well done! The bathroom looks great. And I, too, enjoyed The Office last night. I agree that the ending was wierd. I thought Toby was gone. Love that Jim and Pam are getting married (we'll see) and I think my favorite line came from Phyllis when she said "I wonder what people like about me?" Her response caught me off guard and made me laugh very hard.

Renata said...

Oh I love it! Looks great! Well done!

Nicole - Life in Progress said...

I love the blue! What a great choice.

Like you, I'm so glad The Office is back. It just makes me happy. I LOVED the Jim/Pam moment, and agree that the ending with Toby was a little bizarre.

If I was a child I'd want to play in this cute bathroom all day long! Very good job! Maybe I could invite you over to our house and have you give me a few pointers on our kids bathroom. It's completly boring compared to this charming one! Marie

Rose said...

Favorite Office quote:

"...and THAT's how I sleep at night!"

Just found your blog. Now I want to paint something blue. :)

A little paint makes a big difference! Love, love, love the bright blue color you choose for the vanity. Nice work!

Katie said...

I love it, but one question. How in the world did you have time to do that with 4 kiddos.

emily freeman said...

I LOVE IT! Great job, Meg! Blue cabs...perfect. Sea creatures. More perfect.

And I'm with you on Jim's rushed, wet return to the office. Again...perfect.
