Bathroom Refresh

Is it surprising with those lavendar walls this wasn't the first room we painted?

First off, with a tiny bathroom, we needed more storage. Most of our bathroom stuff was still in boxes in the nursery. The day we needed a bandaid and I spent 20 minutes digging I knew it was time to make the bathroom a priority.

So, late one night me and the hubby put this metal shelf together we got from Walmart for $20. It's nothing fancy but it works.

We didn't spend much money on this room at all. The biggest change is the paint color. I knew I wanted to paint. Since funds are low, I was excited to discover this can of paint I bought long ago.

I originally found it in the mistint section for $5 and couldn't resist the pretty color. At that point I thought it would be perfect for a piece of furniture. Little did I know it would end up all over the walls of our tiny bathroom! It is a bit dark and overwhelming for such a small space but I like it anyway.

The flowered boxes were also purchased quite a while back from Walmart. They had such a lovely pattern, I thought they would be great to organize craft supplies or look nice in the guest room. I was sure happy to have them when plan A didn't look right.

Here you can see the mirrors I placed above the towel rack. As part of plan A I was going to hang dark decorative metal piece there. However, when I held it up it looked dark and out of place with all the silver. So, I dug around and found these mirrors from when we first got married.

Times like these make me want to keep everything. That is dangerous! How do you decide which decorations to keep around and which to give away?

  3. I wish I could tell you exactly what color my bathroom is. But, since it was a mistint, they had mixed up a mossy green color first, didn't like it. Then added blue to make the second color they didn't like.

    It is quite similiar to the blue I picked out for our family room, which is Smokey Slate from Home Depot's Behr collection. The Smokey Slate is slightly lighter and less saturated though.
