Wash house curtain

I finally finished the curtain in the bathroom. I don't know why I have been dreading that. I really don't like to sew with the machine. I really thought I'd do it after school started, but yesterday I just went for it. I had my sign done for a while and I wanted it up.
I took the mini blinds down. I'd like to eventually get them all down in the house. I still have them in the bedroom. I'd like to have plantation shutters like in the living room. Those mini blinds are just dust collectors.

I found this old watering ladle yesterday at a junk store for $8.50, a little more than I wanted to spend but I liked it.

And this was next to it in the same booth. Love this. These old soap dishes just speak to me when I find them!! I pd. $8.50 for it also. I put it in my bathroom.

I bought some plank boards to make a dough board for my new washer and dryer tomorrow. I'll post them later. But as I left the garage, my daughters little car was sitting out in the driveway. Her dad bought her a car this summer, now granted she is only 14 and can't even drive yet. Hasn't even gone up to take the learners permit test yet. He got a really good deal on it, so he bought it. I've been driving it here and there. Well I have a few projects to work on tomorrow. I bought a couple repurpose things to paint up and my mom bought me a old white mountain ice cream freezer in pieces that Ive got to glue the base back together and try to put back together. I'll try to post all that. Have a great evening.

Love your bathroom, isn't it amazing that something that you put off for so long, finished up so quickly you wonder why you procrastinated?
