I have to say that it is next to impossible to photograph a bathroom, but I tried. As always, I tried to capture a colonial meets farm house feel. Since we live in a typical tract home with the builder's choice fixtures, this is what I was able to do without ripping the entire room to the bare bones. Have I mentioned that I need to be living in a saltbox in New England?
Here's what I changed, I repainted the walls to match the rest of the house in my yummy salt-glazed crock color.
We then took down the humongous mirror, cut it in half and framed it. I hated our light fixture with a passion. It was one of those giant round bulb thingies that looked like it should be in a circus clown's dressing room. Ish...and then more ish. I think Home Depot sells them for $7.98, so that is why they go that route with new homes.
I love this hanging cabinet, but I think it needs to be a different color now. It looks gold but it's more mustard. I enjoy changing it out for the seasons.
We also replaced all the shiny fixtures with rubbed black ones, even the toilet handle. My hubby thought I was insane when I suggested black fixtures. We rarely have the same vision, but he likes it now.We have one thing left to do. We're redoing the medicine cabinet with blackened pierced tin, but it's not ready to show. Another day...another post.
Thanks for coming along on the tour of the loo. You might be wondering what I'm stitching next. I'm working on Lucy Maria Wiggins from the Scarlet Letter. I kind of like having a couple of samplers going at the same time, so I'm thinking of adding Ann Wragg to the mix.
