I am going to be ambitious and get in two blog entries in ONE week…enjoy it, because it might not happen again anytime soon! 🙂
So, let’s recap on the Master Bathroom project. I outlined our goals and before pictures in this post, and in my last post I went through the details on how we re-organized the whole room. Now it’s time to show you some finished pictures!
After my last post, our goals looked like this:
- Paint. The biggest thing that could change the look and feel of our bathroom was to paint it!
Organize the bathroom drawers. I wanted to find organizers that would fit into the drawers and help keep the odds-and-ends organized and in a specific spot.(See previous post.) Linen closet. Find matching storage. I didn’t like how we had a bunch of different baskets storing things…I felt that even though everything was organized in a basket or container, the mismatched organization made things seem unorganized. We were also not making good use of all the space we had!(See previous post.) Under-the-Sink Storage. This was a tricky spot to make good use of space. I wanted something with some height that could fill the cabinets but that would also provide us with good storage.(See previous post.)
- Shower. I like our shower, but I hate the clear see-through doors. We have to use a squeegee after each shower on the doors, or streaks will show. For a neat-freak like myself, this is SUCH a pain. I wanted a solution that would make the shower appear cleaner.
- Décor. We didn’t really have any sort of pictures, or anything on the walls, and I wanted to change that! I had spent time making sure other rooms of the house seemed “finished” and I wanted our bathroom to feel the same way.
Details on Remaining Goals:
Paint: We used Benjamin Moore paint in “Dalila”. Our bedroom is yellow, grey, white and purple and we wanted our bathroom to coordinate with that. Therefore, we chose yellow paint (our bedroom is painted grey), and accented with grey and white décor. It is cheerful and bright, but not overwhelming in the sense that you want to cover your eyes in the morning because you can’t handle the light! We are both really happy with how the color turned out.
Shower: I didn’t want to deal with replacing our shower doors, so a solution to the problem was to add a shower curtain. I found this white Cynthia Rowley shower curtain at TJ Maxx for $20.00. The shower curtain hooks are from Target. Now we have some added privacy and the bathroom appears neater and cleaner. Win-win!
The towel hooks are from Ikea. We had a single hanging bar before, and there wasn’t room for both of our towels. These hooks save space and still allow for the towels to fully dry.
This framed picture is from Hobby Lobby. I love that you can see the wall through it, bringing in even more yellow to the picture.
This hook is another Hobby Lobby find. Grey and yellow are a trendy color combination right now, and Hobby Lobby had a whole collection of things in these color palettes when we began this project! Plus, I love Hobby Lobby, and can usually find something that will work. Having a spot to hang a robe makes good use of space in the bathroom that would otherwise remain un-used and saves space in the closet.
Phew. And we’re done! I have some posts to write about some DIY décor I made for our bedroom, so that’s next on the list.
