Yes, ’tis true. I have never been inside of a Lowes store – until yesterday. OMG. Where have I been?? Good thing hubby was with me and wasn’t exactly in a shopping mode, or I would probably still be there!
Our primary mission was to buy the bathroom stuff, at least for the downstairs one. Thanks to the salesperson, we got the deal of the day. Since we’re going with a pedestal sink, he showed us a custom order that was returned – a Kohler sink top (to the pedestal), normally $319.00, and we got it for $29.00!!! Can you imagine that? Perfectly normal, nothing wrong with it. Of course, we still had to purchase the actual pedestal, which was $197.00, but still! Holy moly – amazing.
Man, my head was swimming… looking at all of the different lighting… now that is what I will be going solo to shop for. Of course, we have so many projects in the works, including the dining room down the line, I just couldn’t help picking out stuff (mentally) for those rooms also. Especially since once the hole in the kitchen wall (for a breakfast bar thingie) is done, and we’ll be able to see through to the dining room, I want to have that chandelier put up right away – especially since we’ll have the contractor available to install it, ya know?
A few groovy linkolas for more stuff I’m dreaming of… for the dining room, where we have the original oak panels about 15 inches apartÂ on all of the walls, wouldn’tÂ just about any of these wallpaper treatments be stunning?!Â I’d still wallpaper over painting any day.
And the lighting… ooooo, lookie. Lowes has many many comparable lights, so that’s cool too.
Last, but certainly not least, we picked out our kitchen cabinet style – in knotty alder.
Did I tell you that we’re doing the upstairs bathroom with a wainscotting of white beadboard? And keeping the original style of the floor with those little white hexagon tiles with the black dots inbetween? I hope it turns out in reality like I see it in my head.
Ok, I’m done. I’m so darn distracted, but I really need to get some work done. Coffee time, yes?
