Bathroom Progress

It’s time for some honesty… we didn’t fix the bathroom walls this weekend.  Instead we did this: epic salsa/guacamole session!  SO AMAZING.We did, however, make a bit of progress so I thought I would share a few pictures.  The main thing is that we got the Beatles picture framed and hung!  We ordered the frame off of Craig Frames for only $23.99!  They have a million frame sizes (and finishes!) to choose from, including the size we were looking for (14×22).  Wooooo!Now I just need to figure out what to put in that adorable little bucket Cindy gave me for the Bloom Into Spring Gift Exchange.

We also managed to get the towel rail that used to be next to the toilet and moved it to a cleaner, more useful location behind the door (more on this process later!).And with two steps forward, we also took two step back (of course… this bathroom is never going to be done!).  I managed to break the light fixture when I was trying to put the globe back on.  Dumb light Erika… now we just have an ugly, blindingly bright light bulb sticking out of our wall.Ugh. Now we have to figure out where we can get a replacement globe.

In other sort of disappointing news, we got the fabric swatch of that guitar pattern we loved for the shower curtain and I’m not sure the colors are quite right.The grey is fine but the yellow is too golden… not the sunny, more lemon-y (obviously a word) yellow we have been using. Perhaps if we only use a bit of it, we can get away with the color difference. What are your thoughts?

Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, the salsa and guac were DELICIOUS! :)

    I think you can totally get away with two different colors of yellow. Too much of the same makes it too matchy matchy.

      Yeah I have to constantly remind myself not to go matchy matchy. For whatever reason my brain fights me on it even though it’s not my style haha!

    I think if you use a little of it it could work. Figure out what’s more important the guitarsl or the colors.

    I think you can get away with using different yellows – but I’m not a fan of matchy matchy to begin with so that totally influences my opinion. :P

      Same here… I much prefer a more eclectic look. But my brain loves to be matchy despite my style preference haha! I need to make a conscious effort NOT to match things sometimes. It’s a sickness :)

      MMMMMM! Me too! We use Rick Bayless’ recipes (and then add our own twists sometimes) and I have never been disappointed!

    Okay, I love this rock and roll theme you’ve got going on – the Beatles poster, the guitar fabric – awesome! :)
    I agree that you can get away with the different yellows, too. It’s not like they’ll be touching anyways. I can totally see that fabric being an accent stripe/band on hanging towels… just sayin’ :)
