Done nesting, now resting

This is BEFORE. You might look at this with the light streaming in the window and think, well that looks nice. What was she thinking? All you have to do is look in the mirrow at the purply-gray tone cast on your face and know that I speak the truth. Icky.


Here's AFTER. It's a tiny bathroom so it's hard to get a wide angle view.



And because I'm comfortable with my flaws, here's a gander at my cut-in. I spent a good hour this afternoon with a liner brush trying to straighten the lines, minimize the lilac peeking out here and there. And considering the house was built in the '50s and nothing in it is a straight line, I'm pretty happy with it.


The best compliment was when Caroline hopped on the potty and exclaimed, "Oh mommy, it's purple!"
