Bathroom Makeover

Posted in Before and After, D.I.Y., Decor Files, Inspiration, Uncategorized by Miss Pomp on June 27, 2012

Around the time that we moved into our new home, I bought grey and white paint to redo our second bathroom in stripes. That was a year and a half ago, but you know how it is – other projects are more important, you get busy, yadda yadda yadda, the bathroom stays the same. I had all the elements for the new bathroom (paint, shower curtain, art), but nothing had been done. So, when we left for Europe, our bathroom looked like this:

YOU GUYS. When we got back from Europe, our bathroom was DONE. It felt like Christmas morning. We had just gotten to go on a round-the-world adventure, and back home, my sis was doing super awesome and amazing and kind and wonderful things for us (and this was actually just one of a few). Here are the after shots that we got to come home to:

(Curtain – CB2, Art Print – Jessica’s Little Shop of Illustrations – Etsy, Frame – vintage)

I was going for a monochromatic look with a touch of fun in the art print, and I’m super stoked with how it turned out. And super stoked with Miss C doing all the manual labor 🙂

One of the things I’m reminded of when redoing spaces is that you can have a large impact without investing much money. This whole project was under $100, but the change is really drastic and fresh feeling.

    Hmm… I like all the elements of the bathroom but not all together. Very clean, modern update – I appreciate that it appears to have been done without changing the layout…

    Great minds! I just painted vertical light pink stripes in our powder room. So snazzy for not a lot of money.
