I am so excited to finally show off my bathroom makeover!
If you follow me on Facebook, you would have seen that
I have been working on it for a few weeks now –
I only have 1 before picture.. and it isn’t very good-
But you can tell it was brown..
I love brown – hence the name of my blog and the color of most of my house.
But lately – I have been drawn to more color.. I have found myself wanting to take a
step outside of my neutral color safety zone. I can’t even tell you how hard that was!
For some reason, it seems impractical to me to go with a brighter, less neutral color on the wall.
I know – I have issues… 😉
I decided I wanted to use green and turquoise,
which was a huge difference from what I had in there.
I started out with a shower curtain from Target, and matched my paint colors to it.
The curtain was only $15.99 on sale – I love Target!!
The little bath mat you see on the floor was from Kohls, it was also on sale for $15.
The striped hand towels were from Target too, and the filler for my apothecary jar is from Michael’s.
(with 40% off coupon of course!)
The green basket is an old Longaberger one I had.
I have so many Longaberger baskets from when I used to sell them-
They are stashed in closets all over the house!
I put a pair of decorative shutters over the toilet –
I left the mirrors the same, but I am thinking about painting
the frames either white or silver.
This adorable little guy was also purchased at Target – $10
I love it so much! Isn’t it funny how something so small and
inexpensive can make you so happy? Of course, I was under the
influence of a Salted Caramel Mocha when I bought it…
And I am sure you all recognize this classic –
The Fiestaware pitcher.
I really did buy it just for the bathroom… I know that sounds odd..
But I love it so I will just roll with it, and pretend everyone keeps kitchen objects in
their bathroom.. in fact – before running water people did have pitchers in there
right??? So there you go – it was just a nostalgic nod to a previous age –
I found this little print online and just had to have it!
I bought the frame at Michaels, I like the farmhouse look of it.
We are not completely finished with the room yet.
We meaning my husband…
We are doing a board and batton wall treatment – and I am sure
we represent the last people in the world to finally tackle that Diy..
If you are unfamilier with the look, here is our inspiration photo.
We have the top board up, but have yet to do the vertical boards underneath.
Once again, that is we meaning my husband….
I will take more pictures when we have the wall treatment done.
The paint we used was Behr, and we used their bright white semi-gloss and
the green color was satin and called Contemplation.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures – let me know what you think.
Did I do the right thing is stepping out of my neutral comfort zone or not?
