Condo Improvements

Phew..I am exchausted and we have barely scratched the surface. I am so excited to see the finished product next week but we are tackling some major tasks in a short period of time. Thank goodness my parents are super handy or I wouldn't be able to make any improvements on my new home!

First task was getting rid of that horrible piece in my bathroom. My Mom and I went out to run some errands yesterday and it was out by the time we got back.

The new vanity arrived this afternoon. It was so heavy so the delivery man and my Dad finagled it into the bathroom. We had to get the door off in a hurry so it would fit. The marble completely matches the color in my bathroom, very glad it looks good. The mirror they sent wasn't the one I bought but was a good alternative. The delivery guy kept saying "very beautiful, very nice..." I don't think he wanted to have to take it back. So, it is a nice mirror and it getting hung up tomorrow!

We propped it up with some books to see how it would look.

These are the kitchen lights I found...simple but cute.

This weekend, I ordered this headboard from Target! I have been looking at one from Ballard Design that is similar but this one had the right price, so it is on the way...

So tomorrow, these are getting painted white and will have pretty glass knobs and serve as my new bedside tables. Add two blue and whtie chinese lamps from the Plantation Shop, and my new bedroom will be perfect.

More pics to come!

Oh, gosh, love everything you've chosen. I look forward to hearing how you like the headboard. I've been trying to select one and I like the tufted look.

Best wishes in your new home.
