It's a new month and that means it's time to take a look back at…
We started redoing our bathroom back in October. Nothing too major – a new toilet, new sink/vanity, new storage cabinet and lights, and some paint. I kind of wanted to do a new floor but remember that nasty dentist bill I had? That was the same day I was supposed to go pick out flooring. So there was no floor because it wound up in my mouth. It’s okay, though, because I’m really happy with everything else and I don’t even notice the floor now.
I took before pictures and everything and then I forgot to blog about this. Whoops. Luckily, Stephanie and I had a conversation last week that reminded me that I forgot. And I couldn’t have remembered at a better time since I really had nothing else to talk about today. Okay, enough words, how about some pictures?
This is before:
Our old sink was a corner style one with an oak base. Boring and awkward.
The walls were off-white. Blah. And we actually had a phone in there from back in the day. When I say “we” I mean Dale because that was one of his decisions BC. That’s Before Carole, in case you didn’t know.
I had stenciled this room when I first moved in over 12 years ago. I guess stenciling was still popular then. Now it makes me cringe. And you can see the color samples on the wall here.
This is after:
Our new sink is white with a white bead board vanity and medicine cabinet. The new light is so bright! I can really see when I pluck my eyebrows these days. Ahem.
This storage cabinet matches the other pieces. And I love the new white curtain at the window. We painted all the woodwork white, too. So bright and cheerful!
The shower curtain isn’t new -it’s actually where my color inspiration came from. It reminds me of a mitered afghan, frankly, and all the colors are beautiful. Orange and gold and green and even some blues and purples.
So that’s our new bathroom. Yes, it’s orange. Very very orange. And we love it! It’s COLOR and that’s what I want in my home these days. No more neutrals! No more boring!
Bring on the COLOR.
