Weekend Camping Trip

This weekend we went on a little camping trip to Fall River. It was a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures!
We started a fire and made s'mores and roasted hot dogs!

Here is our was super easy to set up!
We used our camping cook stove to make breakfast burritos in the morning.
Then we went exploring...
and the girls tried out some rock climbing...Stanley's past-time.
We drove over to see the damn.
And traveled over the creeky bridge before heading home!

Our Bathroom Makeover

This is our bathroom BEFORE! As you can see, it was pretty awful. We have lived with it for the past 2 1/2 years since we moved in. It had gold fixtures and a hunter green countertop and sink. The cabinets were a blonde wood color. I was so tired of seeing it, I decided it just had to go!
We were working in a pretty tight budget. We completed the whole bathroom for about $700.00. Here is the finished Bathroom!
Sink Before...
Sink After...
We replaced the sink, fixtures, mirror,lighting, and flooring (Vinyl tile). We painted the walls a pretty blue green. Then we sanded and painted the countertops using a product from Rust-Oleum. It was 19.95 and was mixed to the color of my choice at the paint counter. So far I LOVE it! It is very durable and smooth. Can you think of a cheaper or easier way to get rid of dated countertops? We also painted the cabinets and added a glass tile backsplash.
I finished off the room by adding fresh new towels, shower curtain, rug, trash can, lamp, and a few accessories.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. The ugliest room in our home is now beautiful!
Thanks for checking out our new bathroom!
