{Bathroom Makeover}

A few months ago we gave our main-floor bathroom a much-needed makeover.

Let me just give a disclaimer that this room is nearly impossible to get decent pictures of...it's a tight, weird space with bad lighting and a huge mirror. The new color of the walls is quite a bit duller in real life than it looks in these pictures.

When we moved into this house in 2003, I had a momentary lapse in judgement and painted my bathroom yellow. I'd always wanted a yellow bathroom for some reason, even though I've never been a huge fan of the color. I almost immediately regretted it, and THEN...I had another lapse in judgement....that lasted seven years.
It wasn't that I was lazy and didn't want to do the work to re-paint it. Well, maybe I'm a little lazy. But it was mainly because I'm stubborn.
I wanted yellow, I painted it yellow, and I'm darn well going to live with the yellow.
I wonder about myself sometimes.

Anyway...onto the visuals:


I'll bet you agree...the yellow and blue had to go.


We painted the walls in Behr's Mother Nature:

(I told you the pictures don't show the true color!)

We added beadboard wainscoting and painted it white,

changed out the shower curtain,

and added some fun accessories.

I found this metal clock at a thrift store...it was white but I spray-painted it glossy black and added a new timepiece so that it actually works.

We made some very simple changes over a long weekend and we are loving the results! I should never have waited SEVEN YEARS!

Your bathroom redo looks great, Tammy! I like how the shapes on the shower curtain match the feel of your new clock. Also, I love your comments about the word VOILA on the sidebar. Too funny! :)

Tammy I LOVE it!!! I am wanting to redo my RED kitchen that has also been that way for 7 years. I guess we can call it the 7 year itch huh? Can't wait to see you all!

Oh your bathroom transformation turned out gorgeous. I just love that shower curtain. Is the color on the wall more green or gray?
I am looking at doing some wainscoting too :)

Nicolette @ Momnivore's Dilemma said...

Love that shower curtain! That "Mother Nature" color looks great paired with the black & white. I get what you mean with the yellow {it was my former office's color for five years. it got old real quick}

If you have a moment this weekend, please link up and share this bathroom with my readers!

It's nice to see a blog post about a room that's even remotely similar to the size of mine!
I did the wainscot and the 'tin tile' wallpaper above it and on the ceiling in my bathroom...I LOVE it!
