HALF BATH MAKEOVERRight before the holidays I finally attacked and won a task I had put off for far too long. I painted our half bath! It needed it so bad. For several years now the walls have been a dark wine color. The color was actually called "red, red wine". It was! Evidently, the walls did not receive a primer before this paint was applied because the walls had a chalky look to them. Almost anytime you touched the wall it would leave a chalky spot. YUCK!
This picture makes the bathroom look really yucky. It wasn't quite this bad. (close)
I knew I wanted to lighten it up. I had to stay with the the light fixture which is this gold strip with the big bulbs. Not my choice at all but you do with what you have sometimes. Also, the spigout is a brushed gold. It's not too bad and I don't mind keeping it for now. The trim and cabinet are in white but I still painted the trim a fresh, bright, glossy white. It's so much better. Nice and CLEAN looking!
I always tell my clients that before they list their homes on the market to sell they usually need to spruce things up and paint is the best and cheapest way to do it. Also, I stress to my clients to go with a neutral shade of paint color whenever possible. It's a lot easier for a prospective buyer to picture their own decor in a neutral palet then some bright, or dark color of the sellers liking.
I love these pictures and frames. I picked them up at Marshall's. The shabby frames and of course beautiful roses are just my thing. I've moved these around to almost every room in my house.
I love the beach! Hubby bought me these wonderful starfish candle holders several years ago. I'd love to one day have a cute, little home near the ocean. These candle holders will be perfect in my little dream home!!
