We had a great vacation spending our Thanksgiving in Daytona Beach. We have a timeshare so we stay in the same place every year. It is right on the beach and so relaxing. Kid LOVED the beach - all of them!

So proud of my husband and his handyman abilities! We were originally going to replace the vanity so we could have double sinks – the original bath had to be from 1978 when the house was built – scalloped, lime green marbled countertop, mint green toilet, carpet in the vanity area. Definitely needed some updating but weren’t quite ready to tackle all of it until we had a slight glitch- the new vanity cabinet and countertop was 3/4” too wide – they must’ve built the original in to fit b/c standard is 60” which is what we assumed we had until we did a very accurate measurement after we bought the new one. Needless, to say, this became a complete overhaul which was needed but not planned. Took about a month of sharing bathrooms with kids but not ONE professional called in for the job! Unless you consider our friend, Jim, another DIY’er who came to help wire the 2 lights above the mirrors. I did the grout in floor which I learned from watching a 5 minute video on the internet, and the painting of ceiling and walls, and I painted over an icky southwestern print canvas to make my own simple design-although I think Morgan could’ve done just as nice of a job being a 3rd grader but it fills up wall space for sure! It is a HUGE canvas that was going to go to the garbage until I tried to improve it. I also painted the brassy closet doors to brushed silver and used some glass frosting spray to update it a little. Not sure if you can tell from the pics of it b/c it reflects everything in our garage in the mirrors just so you know what you are looking at.
my artistic abilites-not much as you can see (used to have clay pots painted with all the southwestern designs – very icky!) with a natural light wood frame)-wish I could find a before picture of it!-Just painted right over it!
