Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!!!!!  I’m so excited to join your club soon.  🙂

Things have really been happening here in the past few days.  The faucet for the vessel sink finally arrived!  The sink is installed in the bathroom (along with the toilet), and we hung the mirror and installed the lights too!  David even finished priming the walls/ ceiling and put on the first coat of paint.  Since we aren’t finding out the gender of our baby, I wanted a neutral color for the walls.  It’s a guest bathroom for now but eventually– God willing– the guest room will become another child’s room and so I wanted something a boy or girl would like but also be sophisticated enough for a guest room in the meantime.

I decided to try out the “runner-up” to the family room.  (Remember when we were deciding which yellow to paint in the family room?)  We still haven’t painted the family room yet because of plumbing/ heating issues downstairs, but we did decide on one of the C2 paint colors.  The second choice was Farrow & Ball’s “Hound Lemon!”  We picked some up from a cute shop in downtown Charlottesville called Palette and David gave it a go.  Here are some photos after one coat (I wanted to see how one looked before committing to the second):

I think the sink turned out really well!!!!  Not bad at all for an antique store find and a vessel sink from Lowe’s :).  We still have to paint the second coat and add the accessories– I’m thinking a green shower curtain?– and I’ll be sure to share with you after it’s all finished!  Shouldn’t be too long now!
