The renovation of G's bathroom upstairs is nearing completion. We have completed a little more since these photos and have one more thing to do (frame the mirror), but here's a little before and after.

First, looking toward the hallway.

Next, the view as you walk in.

Here are the details. First is the old wallpaper. Second is the framed prints we put up. I used the copy of Charlotte's Web that Matt's Grandma Kranz sent him, because it was his favorite book as a kid. I scanned in a couple of illustrations from it, printed them out, and tore them around the edges to make them look like vintage pages. I adhered them right to the top of the matting, rather than underneath, so you can see the edges. I'm pretty proud of it and think it looks really nice in there.
