1st floor bathroom... it has doors!

I'm getting ready to host a Shaklee Brunch on Tuesday... and I just really needed doors on that 1st floor bathroom!

So... that's what we did on Saturday!
this bathroom door opens up into my office

And this bathroom door opens up into the back hallway
We got that done... and then I really wanted to cut & install the soapstone for the vanity... but that'll have to wait till this week!

The Pantry...

I'm pretty blessed to have the Pantry of my dreams!  My pantry is my special work space for mixing up all kinds of yummy things.

It's here that the weekly whole wheat bread gets made... and the Wednesday night Pizza dough gets mixed... and the daily green smoothies... and we have tons of food storage in there... including buckets of wheat berries, oats, rice, flour, dry milk, and sugar!

Today we installed wire shelving in the Pantry closet!

Well now... the buckets have a home!

Last week we purchased this awesome 8 foot dry erase/cork board from the surplus sale of an old school that's being torn down... we hung that up on the wall too!

That's where I'm going to write down stuff that we need to purchase on our big monthly grocery shoppings.... and I'm going to post recipes and such on the cork board...  

 Next up... install the Pantry closet door!

1st floor bathroom

The 1st floor bathroom has a walk in shower.

Last weekend Rich installed the shower doors and today... we got it all ready to use!

Yes... I did have the first shower!  It felt more spacious than our tub/shower... I think because of the glass doors.
