And if you’re a regular reader who’s been around for awhile, you’ve seen my bathroom before, but we’ve made a few updates recently and I’m going … Continue reading

Kristi’s Modern Farmhouse/ Rustic Glam Master Bathroom Makeover

Post contains affiliate links. Thanks for supporting Boxy Colonial! I had these really grand plans for keeping up with blogging while we were out of town. I had photos all ready to edit from both my mom’s porch and Kristi’s bathroom. And then I was also going to do posts with photos of….designy things we saw on the trip: lovely … Continue reading

Vintage Planter Collection and Ikea Bjarnum Shelves

The last bathroom post! You know, I was all proud of myself for holding back on posting every little update, so that I’d have a real REVEAL to show off in here….but the downside is I kind of feel like these little posts about specific projects afterward are a bit of a let down. So with that enticing introduction out … Continue reading

A (Mostly) Black and White Gallery Wall

Posts have been sparse around here because we just got back from a week and a half in California, where we had a great time seeing family and beaches and redwood trees and whatnot. More on that later, but today a quick post with a few more details about the gallery wall in our master bathroom. I’ve been trying to … Continue reading

A Black, White, and Vintage Master Bathroom

  Well, look what we have here! The master bathroom makeover three years in the making. Or at least three years in the thinking about and a year and a half or so in the making. Today there will be many pictures and then later on I’ll post a source list and probably have a couple of small posts about … Continue reading

One Crazy Summer and EVEN MORE Bathroom Teasing

What’s that you say? You can’t stand to go through another weekend without seeing just a little more of our in-progress-since-the-beginning-of-time master bathroom? Right. Well, this post is for you, then! I always feel a weird explaining/apologizing about projects taking (much) longer than I expected. Because, I mean, I don’t think most people are losing sleep over our master bathroom … Continue reading

Painting Trim (Still. Always): Paint Sprayer v. Brush

Post contains affiliate links. Thanks for supporting Boxy Colonial! I made the title all dramatic, but, really, we’re pretty much (finally!) finished with the trim! We still need to touch up (it turns out leaving painter’s tape up for weeks means you peel a lot of paint off the ceiling when you take it down. Oops), and there are still … Continue reading

More Bathroom Teasing, plus Talk about Accessories

What I’m trying to do here, see, is to string this out until I have an actual finished bathroom to show you. I’m not sure if it will work. But the idea is that, once the painting’s finally finished, everything else will come together quickly since Dave will be all finished with school. And I can do a real room … Continue reading

Master Bathroom Updates

So maybe when you look at these pictures, you’ll think I’m cropping them very carefully so as to avoid spoiling some amazing project we finished and are saving up for another post. But no. It’s that 1. this bathroom is huge, but fairly narrow, so kind of hard to photograph from certain angles and 2. everywhere else in this room … Continue reading
