More painting and vacation

I have been busy painting my kitchen and the small bathroom right off it. I finished last night, so got everything put to rights today. I am also packing to go on vacation. I leave tomorrow to go see my daughter and son-in-law in Seattle and to see my sister on Vancouver Island, BC. My youngest daughter and her boyfriend are going with me. Should be fun. I probably won't be posting much from there, but will fill you in when I get back.

Before (above) and after pix of bathroom. Yea, I might've gone off the deep end. I knew the eggplant would look good with the curtains...and they do.
But it is a bit much. I am getting used to it. Funniest part was that my husband has not said one word about it. Of course I haven't been crazy enough to ask. He hasn't volunteered an opinion, though!

 The picture isn't hung yet, just resting on the towel bar for effect. I haven't had time to hunt down a frame.
This bathroom is tiny (4' x 5'), just a sink and toilet. This pic is behind the door when the door is open.
The kitchen as I was painting the ceiling. Nice wallpaper, huh? I thought I should change the color, thought about maybe a lighter rusty color. I have yellow countertops, so not a lot matches. But ended up going with yellow.
 I like it and will take more pics when I get home and get some things hung on the walls. I am so glad it is done. It is nice to have it all fresh and clean too!

What a fun shower curtain to go with the purple walls!! I bet you are so glad to have those painting projects completed! I know it is not my favorite chore.
LOL, we will be out west at the same time. I'm heading out to S. to see my folks and my sisters in a couple of days!

I love yellow kitchens! It's so sunny and bright...just the way a kitchen should be!

Thanks for sharing the "homework" you're getting done. Love that eggplant wall. I also have done things in the house and not mentioned them to DH -- just wait to see a reaction or hear a comment. Works for me!
