It's um. A bathroom. (So I'm sorry if this crosses the line of our friendship somehow.)
I'm not sure what blog etiquette states about sharing bathroom pics... but the truth is I had put this project off way too long and it took me a week to finish it (which is very unlike me) so I'm sharing it. Because I feel that I need to celebrate this minor life accomplishment in some capacity.
Plus, it turned out very cute. All soothing and neutral. Not that a bathroom needs to be soothing. But mine is. The neutral colors make it appear very clean-looking (which I kind of need since I can't remember when that tub got a good scrubbing). Ha!
When it comes to bathrooms, here's what I believe in.
1) Hooks. Because no child in the history of ever has folded a towel nicely over a bar. Ever.
2) White hotel towels from Costco bought in big packs. They last forever. We've used them for years.
3) Artwork with subliminal messages that I really hope my children will begin to absorb. If you need one for yourself, I've listed a few in my shop here. (they are not watercolors- just digitally designed prints.) They turned out very clean and sweet and I am hoping my children read and absorb the message.)
4) Changing out ugly, standard light fixtures and mirrors. We bought this spec. house eleven years ago and everything was brass, builder grade, honey oak, cheap and ugly. I have slowly but surely been changing out the ugly for cute. (I changed this fixture out myself and if I can do it, you can do it- just make sure the switch is off, or better yet, cut the breaker.) I had this old mirror and it's been rotated around to various rooms all over the house. I have been considering it for this bathroom for several months and it was perfect!
Anyway, now this bathroom is the same color as the rest of the main house, which I like. I don't enjoy a ton of differing paint colors in main house parts- bedrooms are an exception in my opinion.
Wall color- Rice grain by Sherwin Williams.
Little shelves- Target

And now... I will never paint again. (Except for my closet, which is the final " interior house project" on my list from over the past ten years. Can you believe it? I'm sure I won't have issues dreaming up other house projects...Ha!)
