The bathroom originally came with a basic light fixture, nothing fancy but an easy fix!
Hello my friends! Today I wanted to show you our small bathroom. The bathroom originally came with a basic light fixture, nothing fancy but an easy fix! Changing a light fixture can really give a room a more custom look. We kept the light fixture that was in the Bonnell in my dressing room and replaced it. It was such a beautiful piece, we knew we could install in our new home. So happy we kept it! We then installed two new towel racks, one for the shower and the vanity and a new toilet paper roll.
Forgive me for some of the pictures that came out dark. It was hard to get good shots with no natural light.
It’s amazing how just adding the shower curtain, towels and carpet gives it some life.
The anniversary did not come with a towel rack. I’m okay with that, I would prefer to add my own and place it where I want it.
New chrome towel rack to match the light fixture.

I added my Egret painting for some color.

This double picture frame hangs in the small bathroom. I had the frame and found these cute pictures of tulips in the Magnolia Journal. I inserted them in the frame and thought they made a nice décor piece.
Now think of all the possibilities for this small bathroom. New vanity, mirror, trim and some paint! Wow! Ha-ha! Someday!
Flood update. People here are still in the beginning stages of recovering. Many homes flooded in our neighborhood. We are waiting for the county to pick up the trash/debris. Last we heard from our commissioner is no definite date at this time. Please pray for Texas and Florida.
Dale and I are closing this chapter of our lives and look forward to the next chapter!
Hello everyone! This will be my last blog about our 1987 Bonnell mobile home renovation! For the past 5 years we have been remodeling a single wide mobile home and I was amazed how it was turning out! I’ve learned through this whole process that you can do just about anything to a mobile home as you can with a home on a foundation! For example, we’ve added walls, moved walls, added floor baseboards and trim! We’ve replaced floors, kitchen counters, bathroom vanities, toilets, updated all light fixtures, etc. Dale even replaced the front and back doors with a standard size door. Did I mentioned paint? We have definitely done our share of painting!
We were in the last stages of replacing bedroom floors when our home flooded. We live near the Brazos river and on May 28, 2016 the river went over it’s banks. The river was already high due to one of the wettest seasons ever, which made it the perfect storm for this historical event to take place. Most homes in our neighborhood flooded along with many more homes near the Brazos river.
We wish very much that we could finish our renovation. After evaluating the damages we would have to start all over again! We cannot physically or financially do that! Dale and I agreed that we don’t want to go backwards. You might be wondering like most of our friends and family, “what are we going to do?” Well, after going over all options we feel the best step is to purchase another mobile home. We feel this would be the most affordable path to take. There is a particular model we are looking at and if your willing to stick with us, I will reveal that information later. You know I gotta keep you in suspense! Ha-ha!
Dale and I are closing this chapter of our lives and we look forward to the next chapter! I want to take this time to thank everyone for all your words of encouragement and prayers sent our way! We so appreciate it very much! Please know that we are doing well. Throughout this whole situation we have done a lot of soul searching and know that God has a plan for us. I leave you with pictures of our home and I hope we have inspired you to make your home your own.

Our home has 1064 sq. feet of living space but lacks storage. The main bathroom is a small one! It originally had a pedestal sink and a small medicine cabinet above the sink. We removed the pedestal sink and replaced it with a vanity for extra storage. Dale also made a cabinet to go above the new toilet. Speaking about the toilet, he moved it over about 6 inches so we could have a decent size vanity. He did a wonderful job! Now we have extra storage that we did not have before.
I am happy how it turned out! I like the extra touches that make it feel shabby chic. I love the trim around the window and the ceilings. My husband came up with the trim idea due to some ceiling damage. Creative thinking on his part.
I wanted the bathroom to feel light and airy, so I chose light colors. We painted the walls with Behr’s Silver Tradition. The vanity, cabinet and trim we painted with Behr’s Cream Mist.
