Front Door Plus More Paint

So most of you know that I painted my front door.  No big deal, right?

I liked it, I really did.... but something was missing.  It just didn't feel right.  

So I did what any normal person would and waited three months and then decided to paint the sidelights too.

Ahh, much better.  I think it actually makes the front porch look a little bit bigger (no?  just me?  I know, I'm's all the paint fumes.. I swear).

And here's a little closer view.  
Hey!  Those are the pumpkins I grew!  

I turned on the presidential debate last night. I decided that I needed something "to do" to calm my nerves as I watched.  So I made up this cute little Halloween wreath.  

Have a great day and God Bless!

2nd Floor Progress and Some Bathroom Befores


The upstairs is plastered!  Mr. Windmill did the work all himself.  It wasn't easy to find the time to plaster.  Mainly because you can't just stop in the middle of a wall.  So he worked a little bit before soccer practice and a little after soccer practice.  He completed a small section between boy scout meetings and piano lessons.  Then there was work and sleep and family dinners.......BUT HE DID IT! What an amazing man!

Here is what it looks like now!

Now it's up to MRS. Windmill {that's me} to get it all painted!  

Oh speaking of paint, the bathroom upstairs has been painted.  I chose a very light gray color.  And Mr. installed the recessed medicine cabinet and two sconces last night!  Take a peek.

To get an idea of the whole bathroom space
here are some "before" pictiures.  

This is the doorway into the bathroom.

To the left is a shower stall and a little shelf 
with room underneath for a built in cabinet.

Here is a more straight-on look.

And to the right is where the vanity will go.  

And it looks like this!

If you want to get an idea of where I'm headed with the decor, check out my attic bathroom Pinterest board!  

Have a great day and God bless!
