Let me start by saying I wanted a marble counter top because it would look sooooo good!!! It wasn't a real big area so I went to see what it would cost. For Carrara marble it would have cost $650 and for another light colored marble it was going to cost $530! That was so not the Batchelor Way!!

Look at the photo below to see what it looked like at this point. (OK maybe ignore all the little holes across the bottom and patched ones. Batchelors Way: Update on the Laundry Room. They are doing great!!

Batchelors Way: Update on the Laundry Room

I think they look like the day I finished them. I drop clothes on them and fold loads multiple times a week. I also have laid wet/damp clothes on them for long periods and it doesn't effect them. So they are standing up to normal wear and daily use. I can't tell you how they would do in a kitchen as you might have a few scratches, but my counters in my kitchen right now have scratches. Batchelors Way: Pillow Talk. I love pillows but they cost so much and my kids tend to have pillow fights and ruin them!

I'm getting off the the subject, I wanted to share some pillows I recently added to my bed. First I found this soft muted bird print at WALMART! Batchelors Way: Collage Wall and Art Work on a Budget! Artwork can be done inexpensively and still be awesome and meaningful. I knew whatever I put on the walls of our master bedroom would be important as it would be the last thing Les and I saw every night and first thing we would see every morning. I wanted the artwork to make us smile!
