We purchased paint during a Labor Day paint sale at our local hardware store, and there it sat in the basement shop waiting for us to get to it. Finally, motivation came to me when Cheryl and family were coming for an overnight stay. After we finished we wondered why we wait so long to get to these things. The bathroom had been in bad shape when we bought the house, needing trim on the baseboards as well as along the bathtub. We had the trim, most of it anyway, and we just never got around to it.
We are loving the way it looks! Why do we put these things off?
Our master bath, which is an en suite bathroom in Lindsay and Emma's room, had not been painted for about 5 years, which isn't so bad, but it was a color that was fun when all four girls shared the room and they were ages, 16, 14, 9 and 6, and we were inspired by a Pottery Barn Kids catalog.
We repainted the main portion of the bathroom from "Mango Tango" to a green color called Fable, which we purchased at our local True Value hardware store.
The Flower photos are Emma's photographs. I love the way they look against the green walls.
I am going to get baskets to corral all these hair products and brushes and clips, etc.
The bathroom is in two sections. The toilet and shower room, which had been painted a Lemongrass color, and repainted several years ago in a Williamsburg color "Palace Chambers Yellow."
The shower and toilet room. This room has no natural light. We've thought of putting a sky light in here, but let's not hold our breath.
The other section is where the sink and garden tub are located. It has a window, too. I really think this bathroom could have been designed in a better way, but it is what it is.
We got a several projects finished during October. A few I showed you and a few are small things - like changing my living room curtains. It's made all the difference in our home, with very little expense. That adds up to just right, here at our cottage.
