Master Bed & Bath One Year Later plus a Soup Recipe
I have promised a little update on our addition for over a year but I will have to confess…it was not presentable for months. With a new baby I simply did not have the time to put any love and care into our new room. I also had to find curtains, lamps and all sorts of other stuff and I’m still searching for the perfect night stands. So I still would not call the bedroom complete.
Our bathroom is beautiful but I do not have the lens to capture a small space. I tried my hardest to take some pictures…standing in the shower and balancing on a chair with no luck…I need a lens that zooms out.
Our vanity was a craigslist buy. Not what we originally wanted but when we saw this we knew we could not pass it up. The price was great and the piece was beautiful.
Unfortunately the best view I could get is of our toilet… Not what you had in mind, I am sure.
Our master bedroom still needs work but I’m starting to finally feel like it’s coming together. I am happy to wait for those perfect nightstands that I know exist somewhere!
I have started a wall collage on one wall…still plenty of room for more pictures.
I also wanted to share a soup recipe. Both Justin and I loved it…perfect for a cozy fall day!
