We have two bathrooms in our house. For most homes that would mean that there is a parents’ bathroom, and a kids’ bathroom. Somehow it didn’t work out that way in our house. Instead, the Littles share one bathroom with the Mellow Man, and the Big One and I am now sharing the bathroom with my teen boy. Up until the past year or so, I didn’t have many complaints. However, the older he gets, there are new challenges and realities of sharing a bathroom with him. On the upside, this is partially due to the fact that he is showing a greater concern for personal hygiene. On the downside, sharing a bathroom with a teen is now creating many more Clorox® moments for me than I ever imagined I would have!

Around here it’s consignment season. That means that it’s the perfect time for me to find wonderful bargains on children’s clothing and slightly worn children’s furniture. I love scouring the rooms filled with cast off children’s treasures to see if there is anything worthy of a good upcycle. Last sale season, I found a step stool that was perfect for the boys’ bathroom. It cost just $4, and the finish on the wood was a little faded, but I thought that it wouldn’t take long to fix it up.
I brought it home with me, and proudly showed my purchase to the Mellow Man. He raised one eyebrow, and said, “Can’t you finish a few projects before you get started on anything else?” I think that this is the mantra and plea of the spouse of every DIY/craft blogger. Of course, my response, “It was only $4,” is likely the retort of every DIY/craft blogger.
