Bathroom Update (FINALLY!)
I know this post has been long overdue and I have been teasing you with bits and pieces of our bathroom makeover for the past few weeks. But finally I am able to proudly say that I am prepared to post some “progress” pictures. We aren’t quite finished yet but we finally aren’t embarrassed to show you what it looks like as we speak!
First, let’s discuss the paint job. If you recall, the painter’s tape was NOT our friend the first round of painting so we ended up with this:Gross. After a little “cutting in” (i.e. hand painting with an angled sash brush) we now have MUCH cleaner edges. Never again will I use painter’s tape for edges like this! We also used some white paint to cover the wall where the existing white paint was ripped off. It doesn’t match so we still need to repaint but at least we aren’t looking at drywall!Alright, so moving right along to the actual bathroom pictures!We conveniently already had (and were actually using) two yellow towels so this picture looks very put together! The big changes from this angle are the wall color (duh), the new location of the towel rack (mentioned here), and the “You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey” framed print.I like the way this print came out but it wasn’t easy… Kinko’s has some SERIOUS issues printing greys! You should see all the rejects:Our wall color (and the color of my image I brought in) is in the center. Most were not even remotely close and had this terrible greenish tint! ANYWAY, moving on:This isn’t the best picture but you get the gist. Besides the paint color, we haven’t done much to modify this part of the room other than the yellow soap in the mason jar soap dispenser and replacing the globe light I so gracefully destroyed a few weeks ago.
And the last angle! You’ve pretty much seen this already but I thought I would have all pictures in one post. As for the dress, this really WAS on the hook in the bathroom because I was trying to hand wash a red wine stain I acquired at the wedding a couple weekends ago out of the lace (yes, I was slow to unpack- I don’t want to talk abut it!). So I decided not to move it for the pictures since it matched and also covered up the ugly patch of white paint. Double score! :)
So we have definitely made progress but there are some other things we still need to do:
- Shower curtain (no we still haven’t decided what to do!)
- Window treatment
- New Towels
- Bath Mat/Rug
- Repaint white shower walls
I’m sure there is more but that is a decent list for now! We will get to everything eventually!
As for the weekend, I have plans to finish up a few misc. projects and perhaps do some more cooking (we had a FEAST last weekend!). I hope you all have a great weekend too! :)
