Bathroom Reveal

This post has been a long time in coming such that I am SOOOOO excited to finally be able to share it with you.  A few years ago when my husband and I moved into our house we knew there was one room we definitely wanted to redo–the bathroom.  To begin with, it looked like this…

Bathroom Before

No it wasn’t bad, per say, but the beige had a yellow color that left much to be desired.  Pair that with the fact that our wedding towels of blue and white didn’t really go and…well…this bathroom looked a little boyish to say the least.  In addition, I knew that with the addition of two girls in our life, this bathroom needed some glorifying.

To begin, I’ve always been very fond of the brown and blue bathroom schemes so I searched for a shower curtain that would incorporate blues, browns, and whites as well as a few other feminine colors.  No such luck.  That’s when I decided to make my own shower curtain instead.  With no pattern to follow, I let my creative juices take over. I found some material I liked, measured and sewed it to length, added button holes for the rings at the top, and finished it off with some shiny ribbon to cover the seams.  In the end I had just enough material to create a matching valance too.

Shower and Window Curtain

While most blue and brown bathrooms have blue walls and brown towels, we decided to reverse the color scheme for brown walls and blue towels.  While brown can make a space very enclosing in a small space, since we have so much white in the room already, it just seemed to make everything else pop.

Brown paint
Last but not least, just this past week we finally added the finishing touches–a mirror frame!  Choosing trim that models that of our door frames, only slightly larger in width, my dear hubby cut and glued the frame to the mirror and viola!  I can’t believe how much difference a little bit of paint and some trim can make.
Bathroom After
And what did God teach me throughout this project?  “Good things come to those who wait.”  It took nearly two years to complete this project because of one thing or another but we did it and we did it debt free.

What about you?  You ever have a project that you thought you’d never finish but when you did, you knew it was all worth it?

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12

    Very pretty Kathy!! Great job! I love the mirror frame. I have intended to do the same in my bathroom, and still haven’t. Don’t feel bad I have many half-done projects in my house :) Way to keep at it!!

    Very striking! I’m hesitant to do dark colors in a smaller room, but your re-do is lovely. You’re right – the white just pops! So nice. (It’s a great space to re-do because it’s something that you get to admire often… :-) ) Thanks for the inspiration.
