Black Cat Bathroom Mission

The 2013 redo's have finally begun. 
To reflect my love for black cats,
I've decided to redo our
bathroom in a black cat theme.
I'm now totally addicted to Pinterest
and hope to execute many
of the nifty and
clever pins I've 
I began with the duanting task of removing 
icky old wallpaper from
an old cupboard.
This pin totally
did the job!
I scrubbed and cleaned
this sucker good.

Total out of pocket cost: $5
The two mirrors above the cabinet were 
purchased at the 99 Cent Store along with the 
black rose contact paper &
2 rows of hooks which I attached
to the bottom, as well as the back, of the cabinet.
I had the fabric and tension rod on hand.
The ingredients used for my DIY
were already in the laundry room.

One section of our bathroom
has now been completed.
I've got 6 more sections 
to conquer.

I consider myself an autumn and winter person. 
The Spring here in the armpit of California is nice, but
the summers here are brutal.
I am enjoying the winter and it's cold weather, yet I feel 
a stirring anticipation for the 
weather to heat up a bit.
Say it ain't so.
This is so out of character for me, 
for I usually cling to the winter and 
cold weather and 
dread the beginning of Spring.
This year is different.
I've got big plans for some DIY 
home renovations.
I am excited about 
cleaning up the yard, fixing up the back patio, 
creating a kick ass garden, 
retiling the bathroom floor, 
and redoing our kitchen.
Oh, and we are also planning on painting the exterior 
of the house.
