It’s time for another edition of Fighting The Frump with Fussy.
However, since Mrs. Fussypants just had her FIFTH little boy on Wednesday,
The amazing Karla has taken over the Frump Fighting Hosting Duties.
This week I present a Frump Fighting post with multiple layers. Ooooh the intrigue.
I have despised our master bathroom since we bought the house in February of 2007. It has hideous swirly faux marble counter tops and HUGE mirrors. But those I can do nothing about. The awful light fixtures, dingy paint, boring faucets and outdated hardware.. that I can handle.
Or so I thought.
I went to my favorite Adult Toy Store and picked out paint colors, hardware, fabulous low flow water faucet and matching shower features and went on my merry way back home to attack the not so fabulous bathroom of the 70’s. Not a great style decade, BTW.
Apparently, the bathroom did not like having a face-lift and while I was sprucing up the trim with some lovely white paint… it happened. The counter revolted and I was tossed into the air only to land with a loud CRACK on my side right on the edge of that really hard faux marble counter top. Monkey flipped and ran screaming from the bathroom. Me? I was stone cold still on the bathroom floor trying to breathe. The crack, that was my ribcage. Special people. Special.
5 weeks later, I’m better but still sore.
No self respecting Mom or Southerner will let some cracked ribs stop her from a make-over and so with the aid of both my husband and the occasional Vicodin and 500MG Ibuprofen, I present:
You can Fight the Frump in any bathroom with the aid of just some fresh paint and some new and inexpensive hardware. If you want to invest a little more green and go green, you can get low flow faucets, too. You can go as far as you want, but now my personal Frump Fighting room has been De-frumped and I’m so proud.
Fight The Frump Friday Part Deux:
Now that my bathroom is all lovely, I am asking all my fellow frump fighters for some help in my bedroom. Minds out of the gutter NOW! Not that kind of help…thankyouverymuch
We just got some delicious milk chocolate colored sheets and a gorgeous reversible Pumpkin Spice & Dark Chocolate Duvet cover for our bed from Linen’s and Things.
Can you tell I’m a foodie?
Help a girl out people. Should I paint? What color(s)? Add some pictures or mirrors to the walls around the window? Should I add another color to the curtains?
Please people.. help a sistah out.
I’ll post the results and pictures in a future Fight The Frump post, and I promise to stay off any high surfaces.
BTW~ You’re looking fabulous today! Did you get some
work done sleep, using new night cream? It’s working for you.
