Beadboard Bathroom Sneak Peak

Well, hello.  How is your year going? 

No, really.  I meant to say year (not weekend). 

Like, how is 2011 going for you?

Mine is going by extremely fast. Yours probably is too because for some reason, time just flies.

I'd like to say that I've made a lot of progress on house type projects this year now that it is more than half over but then I realized that I haven't. 

I recently remembered that waaaaay back in January I posted this nice little "Home Goals 2011" list HERE

It seemed like a good idea at the time.  But then, I forgot about it.

I just thought they would naturally occur as we continue to do projects around the house throughout the year.

But, they didn't.

This doesn't mean I haven't done anything over the past 7 months.  Just not things on the old "Home Goals 2011" list. 

However, this changed last week.  Mr. Chic and I decided to paint the boy's bathroom which just so happens to be numero uno (#1 for those who don't hablo espanol) on the Home Goals 2011 list.  The paint led to the beadboard. (hooray for beadboard!) which slows down the process as beadboard is a little more complicated to install than rolling on paint. 

So, here is a little sneak peak.  We Mr. Chic hopes to be finishing up the installation by the end of the weekend and then the fun part, decorating!!

Here is a before...


In progress...
 (don't worry, the chair rail will be painted white and the wall will be covered where you see the sloppy blue paint job. :)

How about you?? Have you completed your "Home Goals 2011" project list?  Hope I'm not the only slacker out there. :)


  1. Lookin good Kate! I LOVE the look beadboard gives a room! What a great paint color for your boys bathroom too, can't wait for the big reveal! Martina

  2. Can't wait to see the finished product! My 'home list' is going a little slow as well... I will pick up in the winter again :)


  3. looks great I need to redo my two b-rooms like this someday

  4. (raising hand) SLACKER! I'm using the good ol' "time" excuse, too...but geez, talk about the first half of the year...I mean where did July even go??

  5. 2011 is surely running away at jet-speed. All the best with your To-Do list.


  6. I cannot believe it is August! I love beadboard...can't wait to see the end product. We are currently working on our projects and to-do list, but slowly. I'm ok with it :)

  7. What a tease. Haha! I hope everything turned out perfectly with your “home goals” project for that year. Was it just a simple bathroom repainting, or were you planning to do more? I would love to see what you’re up to regarding your home projects this year. Have a good day!
