Tweet counter not updating
Most of these little shells I actually picked up off the beach.I looked online to try to find out the names of them and did the grid on Excel and printed it off.Bad, bad, bad light in a bathroom, it has always been dim in here. So just what do you do to update a space like this? Y’all were probably feeling bad that I had pink carpet in this bathroom and yeah, I was feeling bad about that too. Of course, the new flooring makes all the difference in the world in here. Here’s a good look at the existing aqua countertop I had to work with and I really don’t mind it at all now. You can see the mirror got a new frame and I will tell you all about that later. 🙂 Pretty new aqua rug (exact same color as the countertop) is wonderful on the feet and I gave all the trim and cabinets in here a fresh coast of Creamy paint by Sherwin Williams. New hardware was a must and I ordered these ORB beauties off Ebay. I love their delicate shape and they make a big difference in here too.Some suggested that I should reglaze or paint the tiles. But no more…carpet is gone, as well as that ugly, ugly wallpaper and border. This pretty green metal shelf came out of my old green bathroom in AL, along with the accessories, most of which were found at yardsales.Who would think that avocado and aqua could co-exist peacefully? This is the this bathroom has ever looked, just by working with the colors that are here.I wouldn’t have thought it possible if it hadn’t happened so easily, with the help of some inspiration linens. If you find yourself a fabric or in this cases towels and washcloths that tie it all together, that’s the way to do it every single time. We weren’t about to gut this space and start over, so I had to work some magic with what I had.
They will dent if that happens, so to be safe, add a doorstop! I totally feels like a new bathroom, even though it wasn’t gutted and we didn’t start completely over.I’ll show you that later too, but framing things like that is so easy.Burlap lamp was in one of my bathrooms too and it works great in here.Think about it:green, blue, khaki, brown go together perfectly, so why not in a bathroom with avocado tiles and aqua countertops. When I found these towels at Homegoods, I knew this was my answer on how to blend those colors.
I have no idea what happened back in 1973 that brought in the aqua countertops, but I have a feeling my Dad found them on sale somewhere. So, let’s take a peek back at what this bathroom looked like a few short weeks ago when I first shared it with you.Trash can was a yardsale find and I used it in my old blue guest bedroom.
