Powder Room Makeover

Have you ever had one thing happen that changed everything? Well, we did last month. It all started with a toilet. Can you imagine a toilet causing such a stir? It was because of this Kohler beauty that we received new from a friend for FREE! A couple had it installed, never used it but didn't like it so it was taken out. It is one of the taller versions which works when your whole family is super, duper tall like mine! It also flushes a bunch a golf balls!! Don't ask...

Well, with a new toilet, you should always paint the walls while the room is empty, right? So I chose Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.

One thing led to another that caused me to purchase a new light, mirror and accessories. It's called Pinterest. Have you heard of it? It's very hard to take pictures of a powder room!

I loved those floating shelves I saw on Pinterest and ask Mr. Creative if he would mind making some for me. We chose oak since it has such a nice grain to it and I stained them a dark walnut. I think he did just an awesome job on them.

I wanted to keep all my dad's pictures and mementos in here but I did dress it up some with a pop of deep lilac.

Here is the culprit of all this change. Doesn't she look pretty sitting here in all her glory???? If you notice, I had to hide the hunting magazines with a couple decorating ones! Think Mr. Creative will notice?

On another day, I will give you the before and after shots. It's quite a transformation. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Fashion for the Tall Woman Over 40 - Guest Post

Crystelle from Crystelle Boutique has a wonderful blog called Tall Tales. It's a blog about the challenges of fashion and style for those of us over the average height. She invited me to do a guest post on her wonderful blog today! Like her and her beautiful daughter, Juliette, I'm quite tall at 5' 11½".

Here is one outfit of mine on her blog. This would be a casual layered look. Please ignore the hunter green carpet. That is one thing I hope is gone soon!

I'm also doing a style challenge this month and I put together this outfit from the recommendations. Because I have my hair up, I added the scarf to minimize the length of my long neck. There are many tricks to the trade of hiding those "imperfections"!

The style challenge called for some of those cute  short boots but the rain here today would have ruined them! Which is also why I have the rain jacket and my hair in a ponytail!

To see more outfits I have put together for work and casual for a tall woman over 40, please stop by Crystelle's blog at Tall Tales.

Thanks again, Crystelle for inviting me over. I hope I've offered something of value to your "tall" readers!
