Bathroom Before & After

I bought my first home (well, townhome) in November and have been decorating ever since! I have loved this part of the home buying experience! I have been wanting to share what I have done (so far) for a long time now and FINALLY got around to taking some pictures! Up first is my bathroom. It was a horrible tannish shade and blah, bland, boring. I couldn't wait to fix it up.

The light fixture always reminded me of Seasame Street. Remember the lamp post with the big balls? Haha. And I always wanted a chandelier in my bathroom (although I was figuring I would have a bigger bathroom with the chandelir hanging over the tub... that will come someday :)) so I got this cute little on at IKEA. And changed out the mirror. Mirror is also from IKEA....everything pretty much is.
New Sink. It is kinda narrow and trough like.

I picked a pretty aquaish blue color. Nice and calming. I had the paint chip sitting around forever and of course when I want to know the name of the paint I can't find the chip!!


I have a nice bit of storage now in this pretty small bathroom.
And of COURSE new flooring. Nice sticky vinyl titles from Lowes. Cheap but looks really good! And I bought that shower curtain well over a year ago on clearance at Target and was just waiting for the day to finally put it in a new bathroom! :)

  2. I love your bathroom!! We are in the process of redecorating ours*ish - we are in rented accomodation and the floors were blue lined lino and yellow walls... I hated it!! So got two coats of white paint on the wall and a picture up but need shelves etc to tie everything in. Great inspiration for storage! I hope youre proud :)
