Monty and I did a little makeover a couple of weeks ago on our hall bathroom that was trapped in 1988. I had originally gone with the rose-victorian theme for my daughters, but my poor son ended up having to get ready in the space until he moved out...poor dude. He was a sport.
My husband even surprised me by putting a new state of the art toilet stool in that has the no-slam lid closing technology...it's the little things.
I've been inspired by warm colors---oranges, olive greens and golds lately, so chili pepper for the wall color it was. It gave it a bit of a zen vibe.
Now onto the extra bedroom/music room/work out room. Conquering an aging home one room at a time.
Here are some before and after pics. Try not to laugh too hard at the pre-model. Hey, I've been busy raising kids for the past 26 years!
Say goodbye to 1988-ish. If I just could have stuck it out a couple more years, I'm sure this wall paper would have been chic-vintage.
Entering the modern era. We still have to replace the counter and sink, but I get an "ahhhh" effect now when entering this space instead of "eeek!!!"
I hand painted the filigree swirl pattern at the top. Just used the same color, but in high enamel, so it shows up as a glossy shadow. I did the same thing in my hallway. Subtle, but adds interest.
And Blondie is covering up a small ding in the door---fun way to use an old vintage tee from your glory days~
We replaced the old laminate flooring with this ceramic tile look-alike. Laminate tiles (so easy to install) with grout . Great, inexpensive alternative. And I love my Target bamboo floor mat. Forrest still wants a fuzzy one to step out of the shower onto...I'll have to have on handy under the counter for his visits home.
