More Recent House Purchases

Shopping is so fun. I love it. And building your own house DIY-style means you get to shop for every last item in the house. Some people might find that to be absolutely terrifying or overwhelming, but I am loving every minute of it. The plumber says we need fixtures, Mike calls, I shop. It’s a great little system we have going on. We are getting close to the end of all the fun shopping so recently it’s been a lot of bathroom needs and lighting. You saw the post last week about our lighting scheme and the industrial vibe we are going for. Unfortunately, by the time we went to purchase on Monday some of those beauties were gone so we had to start from scratch on a few of them. Here is the final lighting buys lately:

We have also recently purchased some bath hardware. Nothing too exciting, but we got some fixtures for our shower and bath. Here is our shower head:

And the tub faucet for the claw foot tub in the master. We have some work ahead of us refinishing that so that probably won’t be in place when we move in, but the plumber needed pipes and things to rough in so we went ahead and got all that we needed.

I think that’s it for now! What great house finds have you snagged lately?
