Walking on Water, Part I

Okay, we're not seeing the water-world miracle quite yet...
furniture in the bathroom is scheduled for installation today.

A water vessel I've had for years might fit in...

The Pied Piper (our plumber) went out on emergency this morning,
leaving me alone long enough to open a can of wall color.
A pale blue I call "oxygen" will give this small room an illusion of fresh air and open space.
Yesterday, the tile man filled in the empty slot left by the removal of the old medicine chest
 and the owies on the damaged walls disappeared behind his orange peel finish.


Aiming for a classic, clean and serene style. 

As William Morris says,
"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful
or believe to be beautiful."
Amen.

i also love that your paint color is going to give the illusion of fresh air and space. can never go wrong with that.
just the pictures you've already shown are lovely... spare, clean, and full of "oxygen!"

Hi Becky
the 'oxygen' looks fabulous.. calms and serene.. with a little fresh thrown in..

Hope your Pied Piper gets back to the task for you!!.. although a bathroom emergency should never be ignored!! hehe

Have a great weekend.. ciao xxx Julie

Very delicate!

William Morris may be right in your case, but in our home he would have thrown out very much :-)

I like these "sneak peeks." And the sound of the color, "oxygen" :)

Becky, That is one of my favorite quotes, which I practise. Your bathroom is looking beautiful.

Fondly,

Hello Becky.
Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog.
Yet we have not had snow in Denmark - last year at this time we had got it.
We have had a white Christmas in Danamrk 2 years in a row.
Have you got snow - or sneer is not where you live?
Wishing you a good Monday.
Hugs Hanne Bente ♥

Looks like things are coming along very well, Becky. You must be anxious to have your room ready for the holiday weekend.
Enjoy putting it all together!
