Bathroom: The Start of Something Fresh

We have one full bath in our home so needless to say it suffers a lot. Showers, baths, kids, and guest is just the start of what really goes on. It's mom's place to relax, dad's place to shave and shower, and three little one's place to dirty up, bubble up, and drench everything during bath time. I'm not exaggerating when I say this bathroom takes a beating. A few weeks ago I started sprucing it up. I couldn't take the lack of storage and the dated design any longer. It was time our loo be shown some love. I started with my list.
  • paint the walls grey {Benjamin Moores- Grey Huskie}
  • paint the vanity white {ONE- in basic white}
  • add hardward to the vanity
  • frame the mirror
  • add some storage for our bathroom basics
  • pretty up the vanity drawers 
  • new shower curtain
  • new window treatment
  • new towel/robe hooks
  • organize linen closet
This room was really dated when I started. A less than builder-grade vanity and white/creamy walls were an eye sore.




First things first. PAINT! I jumped in headfirst with my rollers and paint. I have really grown a likin' to the modern grey tones that you see everywhere.




I am in absolute love with the contrast between the trim and the walls. Thanks to Frogtape I was able to keep professional looking lines all around.



Yes, still a mess but it's getting there. I am really happy with the grey. At first I thought it had a purple undertone but once it was completely dry I was smitten. And once again the new white on the vanity pops so well with the grey.

And you know me...back to the list...
  • paint the walls grey {Benjamin Moores- Grey Huskie}
  • paint the vanity white {ONE- in basic white}
  • add hardward to the vanity
  • frame the mirror
  • add some storage for our bathroom basics
  • pretty up the vanity drawers 
  • new shower curtain
  • new window treatment
  • new towel/robe hooks
  • organize linen closet

 Stay tuned for more progress.

What weekend projects are you tackling? Anyone have any great bathroom makeovers?
