bathroom talk

Good day ladies, for those of you who are following along with me, you know I'm attempting a little bathroom makeover. However, I have a problem. See, I like to start things and if they don't get finished in around the first 2 days...I wanna move on??? and then nothing gets done. I've tried...I'm trying to stay focused. I have to remind myself that I am working on one project and stay away from thinking about what you would like to do in other rooms. Does anyone else have my problem? urgh.

Keeping on track, today I painted the last coat of paint on my bathroom cabinet doors, so they will go up soon. ( I really wanted to start painting Ava's room today) but Yay, the cabinets look seriously good considering I painted them myself : ). Now I have to look up all that I can about taking tile down off my walls that are surrounding my tub. I want to be totally prepared when I bring this up for the last time with Mr. vG {aka Party Pooper}. I love him to bits and he's cute as sin...but we agree to disagree. So I have gain my ammunition....please if any of you out there in blogland have beadboard around your tub you need to let me know everything there is to know!

Again here is the surround panelling I'm after:

My renos will take a long while yet, so in the meantime, more amazing bathrooms...

I've just noticed that almost all of my inpsirational bathroom photos has an old fashioned tub...yeah, I told Mr. vG that was one of my dreams...he said I'd better get some sleep???   Guess that means no? 


  1. I have that same problem! I think I have creative ADD or something. :) I need to learn to focus on the task at hand and not the 20 that are in my brain! I love all the inspiration photos, the old fashion tub is my dream as well!! Guess we will both be getting a lot of sleep! :)

  2. I have most of those bathrooms in my idea file...love all of them...I'd say 3 and 4 are my faves!!!

  3. All beautiful ! I can tell you taking tile down is a JOB ! We just did our kitchen and it was way worse than I ever dreamed. Im not sure beadboard would work in a shower. I dont care what anyone says ! Maybe subway tile???


  4. Hi Angie, eeeee your kitchen reno sounds painful! I agree with you and I would never put beadboard in a shower...I'm talking about around my corner soaker tub, no shower included. There is 1.5 rows of 13x13 tiles along the wall above the tub and in front is another 1.5 rows, I counted, it's 26 tiles altogether. I'll have to look into it more and see if there is a water resistant product out there with the look of beadboard maybe? Do you still think it's a bad idea? Thanks so much for your input! As much as I want it to look pretty...I want to be realistic too : ) Stacey

  5. Love your blog, and I have been here before, but thanks for bringing me back! I am your latest follower!

  8. Beautiful bathrooms Stacey! Makes me want to repaint my bathroom walls a lighter color...not like I have the time to do it though. Looking forward to seeing your makeover!

    My Christmas table inspiration is from the new Style at Home magazine...love it! Is that the one you have? The red and white theme is so pretty! ~Deb~

  9. Hi Stacey,
    I am new to blogging and just came across yours, I just wanted to say how beautiful all the bathrooms are that you featured. I would love to one day have a claw foot tub. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you again for great pictures.
