What do you think about the color? I think it's better than the gray I was planning on. This blends better with the peachy/ tan bathtub. The tub will be covered anyway... no budget for this one to be repainted now.

The ceiling is out... but there was even more wallpaper above the drop ceiling. We have to install a new drop ceiling because of the HVAC and plumbing above. You can see the new track along the wall being installed.
You can see the lower half of the wall that was damaged pretty badly. We decided to put wainscotting up to hide the imperfections. The picture below is where the toilet and pedastal sink will be installed.
I hope to have another update once the floor, walls and ceiling are finished. Who knows what color I'll choose!

Another other idea I want to pass on is from a friend of a friend of a friend. It's a pretty simple and cheap idea. The hard part for me will be remembering. The idea is to begin writing love letters to your husband for a year in a journal. Then at Christmas giving the journal to them. I think you could put a spin on this - do it for a month and give it to them for a special anniversary, the day you had your first date or the day you got engaged.
