Here is the view looking at my vanity with the shower on the right (please excuse dark picture). We will be knocking out the inner shower walls and relocating the shower head to the back wall. Then we will glass it in and re-tile the inside shower to open up the space and have a nice view from the shower overlooking the tub.
This is the view of my husband's vanity and the toilet area is on the left (my vanity would be to your back, if you need orientation). I think I will make the walls to this area a sort of half wall and take the cabinet (not pictured) over the toilet out and put in open shelving from Ikea. I had already painted the cabinetry bright white and replaced the knobs and hinges with brushed nickel to make it at least a little better. See the before pictures of the bathroom monstrousity here (along with the rest of the horror).
I really love the cabinets in this one. Since the bathroom has no true windows and only a skylight I think mirrors would be so nice on the cabinets. I plan on doing white cabinets with glass knobs that I will source from ebay because I think dark cabinets would be too dark in our small-ish space.
Another great example of mirrored cabinets in white this time. So pretty! Now only to find cabinets like this...oy paco! We plan to get one of those self standing vanities rather than go custom because it will be way cheaper. I will get mirrors cut if I have to I guess.
I saved this picture because I love the idea of a border around the floor, so that's in!
And we will have this tile as the backsplash on the sinks, surrounding the new jetted tub (ooh la la!) and as the floor in the new shower.
I think it will look great with this cabinet I'm using as our linen closet. I'm going to wallpaper the back with something fun and bohemian.
We will also be using glossy white subway tiles to do most of the shower with and I'm currently on the hunt for a fabulous vintage chandelier to hang over the tub.

I am on the back row fourth from the left, near the center, not the greatest picture but whatevs. Oh the perils of being tall, you are always in the back...
Introducing the largest burlesque dance troupe in Texas, Bombshell Burlesque! Our first performance will be New Year's Eve at the Cavern on Lower Greenville Avenue. What a way to ring in the new year eh?
Also, mark your calendars for The 2nd Annual Dallas Burlesque Festival on February 6th at the Texas Theater. Deemed the sexiest show in Big D!
If you are an artist and would like to have a booth at the burlesque festival please contact me for info!

I love the collection of lanterns and jewel tones in this one. I would love to cover the cieling of a room this way.
This was a feature in Country Home sometime in 2008. I'm a sucker for purple glass. My mom has a whole collection that I adore.

This was my first redo-type project so now I'm really looking forward to more! I will have my eye out for some things that need a little TLC next month at Canton Flea Market.

Have you heard of a Flash Mob Dance before? It's quite possibly the most exciting thing since sliced bread. Apparently it's happening all over the country now and I may have the chance to be in one! My dance group has one tentatively scheduled and I can't wait to see what the director has up her sleeve!
Just click to watch a larger video on YouTube.

What do you guys think? Love it or hate it? Hate them because their beautiful? Hate it because you love it?
