Happy Monday! My Mom and I threw a baby shower for my sweet friend, Whitney yesterday. She’s having a little girl in just 4 weeks and I’m so excited to spoil that girl to pieces. She’s going to be completely rotten. However, I forgot my camera at my Mom’s house, so I will have to wait to show you the pictures until I can run over there and get it.
So instead of shower pictures, which was the plan today, we’re going to talk about the guest bathroom. I think I’m being overly ambitious to get the kitchen, guest bathroom, nursery and entry way done before the baby comes, so I’m going to focus on the first three and then hit the entry if I have time, money, and energy for it in January (aka probably a 2013 project).
Since I still don’t really have a vision for the nursery, I’m going to go ahead and tackle the guest/2nd bathroom. It’s actually a great space and really needs very little work except for paint and some new bathmats and accessories. Here it is currently:
Why yes… those are grey diamonds painted on a purple background. They are quite unique and will take a lot of sanding and paint to cover up.
Thankfully, the paint is really my only gripe in this bathroom. The floors, vanities, tub and fixtures are great, which is all the expensive stuff. I can handle a little paint.
Here’s the fabric I’ve picked out and I’m going to make a shower curtain and possibly another valance out of it:
It’s called Waverly Solar Flair in Lime and Indigo. I’m kind of in love with it. I don’t want this bathroom to get too kiddie. Since it’s also our guest bathroom, it really needs to go both ways.
For the walls, I’m thinking horizontal green stripes like this picture:
but only above the chair rail and beadboard that is already in there. I think this will add the fun for kids but still look clean and pretty for adults. What do you think?
