DIY in the Master Bath

You’ll all be glad to know, we finally put up a new light fixture in our bathroom.

We thought we needed to decide if we were going to change some of the other fixtures and colors but we decided to buy something…anything! lol Of course it was a compromise from the beginning. As soon as you stand there with all of the choices, you realize you are not going to leave with your first choice.

But now that it is up, I am thrilled! I think it’s perfect and looks so nice with the slate blue and bright whites.

Of course hubby had to do even more to make me happy.

He surprised me with this new light fixture in my tub. He said that as soon as I fill the tub with bubble bath…and get in…then SWITCH IT ON!

It will be ‘mood lighting’. What do you think? Maybe I’ll just switch it on before I hop in the tub, just to see how pretty it looks!

I love your new light fixture but I had to wonder if your husband was trying out for Snapped on the Oxygen Channel.( If you are not a fan like me, it is about spouses who kill each other. Usually it is the woman who snaps! Which does not surprise me at all.lol)

Diane, I love the new fixture over the sink. Your bathroom is nice. I have the smallest bathroom I have ever had...I think, wow, just how small were people during the fifties. Now to that husband of yours..;):) he is a card and needs to be dealt with .LOL. You two are having too much fun.. Don't you love that you can tease each other. I love that my Teddy is my best friend. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

When we fix our bathroom up that is the type of lighting that we want above our sink. You had me going too about the light in the tub. HA! HA!

Kathy said...

Your bathroom is beautiful! I can only wish for such a room. The light fixture on the wall is gorgeous. As for the one in the tub... You really had me going with that one. I said to myself, "Isn't that going to electrocute her?" Ha, ha, ha!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

LMAO!!!

Maureen Wyatt said...

I do like the new light fixture over the vanity but something tells me you shouldn't take your husband's word for the value of the one in the tub. Hmmm - just what kind of a mood was he going for? LOL

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Love love love your lights - of course I do - they are very similar to the ones our son put in my bathroom a couple years ago - we seem to have such similar tastes. Your bathroom is a show piece - and we both got a good laugh about the "Mood lighting" in your tub. Happy weekend dear friend - I hope to sew tomorrow.

What a pretty bathroom, and I like the new fixture. As for the tub lighting, it sounds like your hubby and mine are cut from the same cloth! Where would we be without that sense of humor that keeps life fun. :-) Have a great weekend, Diane.

ann said...

Quite the jokester that husband of yours. Love the new light. So, Diane, I have cut out the dress pattern that you sent me and I am having a very hard time figuring it out. Oh. I will get there, but it is making me think. It will be so cute one I get it put together.

Kathy said...

Thanks for the laugh!!

Art and Sand said...

I love your bathroom.

Our house is chaotic right now with the painter working on both our kitchen and bathroom. I have lots of little nautical touches in our tiny bathroom, but when we are finished, I am going to add one more. I love the sailboat you have on the shelf and I need to make one from driftwood for our bathroom.

By the way, you need to check out my latest blog post!!!

Marlene Plasencia said...

Hi Diane, LOL to your hubby, love the disclaimer too. Your bathroom is beautiful. Love the nautical theme and the little ledge over the tub. I could be in that tub for a week. Hope you're having a great weekend.
Sending blessings,
Marlene

Chel at Sweetbriar Dreams said...

Oh Diane, I was shouting at the screen "are you serious?!!!". Firstly because of the obvious element of electrocution in the bath (I had thoughts of you and hubby not getting on :-) ) and secondly, what if you sat on it!!!! You did make me laugh!! You wall lights are beautiful and I love the slate blue. Have a happy and safe Sunday xx
