Wallpaper border is up!!

Well... leave it to me! The house looks like 2 tornadoes hit it now... but I cleaned the bathroom walls, washed the towels, artifical flowers, what-nots, mopped, washed the shower curtains, put up a new liner, and even put up the wallpaper border! WooHoo! I had Gary hold the wallpaper border for me when I put the largest piece up. Oh my! He can drive a sane person crazy! Or is it just me?? He likes to tell me how to do something and he is like a bull in a china closet. I was afraid that he was going to rip the wallpaper border by pulling on it so hard. lol He was just suppose to HOLD it. lol Well, needless to say... I put the other piece up by myself. lol I am so use to doing everything by myself. I had told him today that I would like for him to help me. I was going to have him wash the bathroom walls. (I must be kidding. lol) Instead I had him go to Wal Mart and buy a sponge mop and a shower curtain liner. Hmmmm He gave $8 for the sponge mop, but I must say that it really worked well cleaning the bathroom walls. Yep! I cleaned the bathroom walls with a sponge mop. Easiest way to do something like that. It is one of those that you push on and it rings it out. Really neat. I would mop the wall and then take a dry cloth and dry it. Worked really well. The shower curtain... he gave $8 for it too. I usually spend about $4 on a cheap one. lol He got the kind with the metal rings in it. lol He did not want to go buy these things but I told him that one of these days he may have to do it when I am gone! Learn to do something around the house. lol

Here are some photos of my bathroom. I made the design on the first photo. I cut some trim off of the bottom and put on the sides to make it look like a frame. Wow! I had about 6 inches left over when I was finished! I am tired! My walls look like pale yellow?? They are a soft rose beige. Have to get off of here and get ready for bed! Church tomorrow morning. Have to get up at 7:30... which is not long from now. Want to thank all of you for the prayers. Hope all of you have a blessed Sunday. In my prayers, Janie

Wow, Janie, it looks gorgeous! Love the horses. LOL...I stumbled upon the sponge mop trick a few months ago because I just could reach the top of the shower stall. It does work like a charm. Doesn't it feel so good to sit back and look at a job so well done. Hugs to you...

That is so pretty and the most unique border I have ever seen. You're a great decorator. I like your extra special touches. The idea to frame the picture where you did is sooo good. You did an outstanding job.
