This weekend turned out a lot different than I had planned. Bella and my man were both sick, so instead of hanging out with friends and going to church etc., I gave my bathroom a spontaneous makeover. Again.
Ever since we bought our house almost 5 years ago, I have painted and decorated, and repainted and redecorated our master bath. I never like it. It went from a dark country blue when we moved in, to a soft taupe. I bought new towels and a new shower curtain and I liked it at first. It was an improvement from the blue but it soon became boring. Then I thought an ocean blue would be cool. So while I was 6 months pregnant and violently ill, I felt it was important that I repaint the bathroom. MISTAKE. I hated it. It was like a bright Caribbean themed hotel kind of blue. But I had already bought a new shower curtain (why are those things so expensive? $50 really??) and new towels to match so I didn't want to change it too drastically. Just enough to keep me from being embarrassed whenever someone wanted to use our bathroom.
So I painted it a softer shade but kept it a green/blue so it would still match everything. I kept it this way for a year. Never really liked it but it didn't bother me too much.
This weekend I realized that I had all the painting supplies I'd need to repaint yet again. I went for it! This time I mixed my own color. Now I should tell you that our house is on the market and we are hoping to move soon. So I didn't want to spend a fortune. I really would like it to be all black and white but I don't want to gut the whole room, and the tiles and countertops are all gray, white, and blue. We will make do.
(Here is something you don't know about me. I don't use recipes because I never like the way they turn out; I always think it would be so much better with/without____. So I make up my own recipes and am much happier for it. Apparently the same goes for paint. I think I like the color so someone mixes it for me and then I hate it. So this time I mixed my own.)
At last my man and I both like it! So I ran out real quick and bought new towels. In white. I've never had white towels, and quite frankly I always thought white was boring. I love them!!!! They make me feel like I'm in a swanky hotel. The hubby agreed so yesterday I bought a white linen/satin shower curtain.
What do you think???
I do realize the curtain needs to be ironed.
Is it better than the silver one??
Hopefully now I can leave it alone until we move and I have a new bathroom to decorate! :)
