I'm so excited..................

And I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!!!! Oh, how I love that song. This is exactly how I feel today!!! We have lived in our home for sixteen years (I'm guessing the house was at least sixteen years old when we bought it) and for sixteen years I have HATED the blue fixtures in our bathroom.......well that's about to change. As you can see in the first three photos....this is what our hall bathroom looked like three days ago. Yesterday I striped the wallpaper down and today Alvin is ripping everything OUT!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!
Please note in photo # 5: when Alvin tore the vanity out, this is the wallpaper he found! YIKES!!!

I'm going to need you guys help with a little something, but that will be for another post. For now if I don't get my booty up and help hubby, he may go on strike!!! Everyone have a WONDERFUL weekend!!!

Oh my gosh sister! I can't believe the demo job Alvin has done. It's about time you got rid of that blue commode.;lol. And that wallpaper is just lovely. Maybe you should consider doing the whole room in it!!! (smile)

What a job for your husband! You should give him a back rub...after everything is done of course. Can't wait to see the finished bathroom.

I can't say I blame you about the blue fixtures. I can't imagine what it all must've looked like with that #5 wallpaper!! Ha!

I can't wait to see what magic you and Alvin have in store!

I know you must be so excited about this renovation! Alvin looks like he is doing an amazing job! I can't wait to see the finished project! I'm sure it will be beautiful.

Thanks for the comment on my blog about being sentimental. I love the story you shared about the trunk with "Emma" on it! We have just too many things in common with one another! I think we are going to have to meet each other because I DO believe we were separated at birth! Southwest flies to NC every day, right?

Have a great weekend!
