Let's just say that 4 months after our Bath Crashers experience, I'm getting a little anxious about living in this unfinished room. I mean, if you read this blog with any frequency, you know us, and we don't do unfinished projects very well. So it's pretty hilarious when you think that the 3 day bathroom remodel is our single longest running project in our house.
So while I spent some time creating new lights over the weekend, I also took a few minutes to spruce up the toilet room. It's not a large space, but it felt very bare and unfinished, even after the wall gallery of quotes I hung up a few months ago. So I scrounged up a few things.
You thought I was joking, didn't you? Nope, it was an "As-Is Mystery Cart", and I assure you it was real. The cart was covered with a feather duvet and then wrapped with plastic all around so that you couldn't really see what was inside. I did get a glance at a pitcher I had my eyes on earlier, and between that the and duvet alone I figured the cart was worth the $30. Jason was absolutely ashamed to be with me, and could only manage to blurt out, "Really Erin? Really?" But the other Ikea customers seemed as jazzed about it as I was. People in line kept asking me about it, and there was a whole line of gawkers waiting for me to open the wrap once we purchased. I can't even begin to list everything that was in there, but from a duvet cover and pillow cases, storage boxes, wrapping paper, candles, clocks, picture frames, curtain panels... this baby was filled with a ton of stuff, 90% of which I was thrilled to get. Well worth my $30. It's true what they say, life rewards the risk takers.
I also framed up the Manifesto Poster by Holestee, which I personally think is the best thing I could possibly look at the moment I open my eyes every morning and the just before I go to sleep at night.
What can I say- we find our inspiration on the John. It helps that our John as heated water running through the seat, a warm water cleanse, dryer, automatic flush and automatic seat close. Who wouldn't be inspired?
