Welcome sweet friends!
Talk about plain....dull....nothing that would make you want to walk in here...this is after I pulled off the wallpaper that was curling at the seams....ripped in other places...yawn...ho hum...
So with Met. Mondays in mind I decided to change things around a bit! Got hubby to help me too. He's very into blogging projects now and understands the importance of them...wink!
When you live in a farmhouse...
the rooms are older! They have character
but they definitely have problems too.
Be sure you notice the light fixture...brass...it got SPRAY PAINTED!
I bought Martha Stewart paint in Milk Pail....
and for the white cabinets I used
Picket Fence. I love her paint.
I bought spray paint in the Oil Rubbed Bronze~Metallic~Rustoleum. Loved it. Sprayed several things with it to tie it all together.
The soap pump is from Target in the same dark
Found these towel hooks at Marshalls. My family is not friendly to Towel Bars...for some reason they get ripped out of the walls...football players aren't delicate when reaching for towels. The act they they are tackling the towel as they RIP it towards them from the wall! I had to repair several holes in the wall....before painting.
Next we added tile above the shower where the drywall had peeled away....love the look!
Here was my inspiration piece that I have shown before. I took a 29.00 book case from Walmart, lined the back with scrapbook paper, bought matching towels, and added little things here and there to tie into the look in the bathroom.
This was a free graphic from Graphic's Fairy Blog. I matted with scrapbook paper and spray painted frame.
It is difficult to tell but the paint color is that light green/blue turquoise color.
Below is a cannister I made. Hot glued the bird on the lid and then spray painted it with the same Metallic spray paint to tie in the look. I made a couple of these and I love them.
Below is Armstrong Adhesive Floor Tile (peel and stick). I had the ugliest linoleum and put some type of concoction over that (rolled it on with paint roller) and after it dried we applied the peel and stick tile. I have used this tile before and absolutely love it. It has held up well after several years and would use it again. LOVE IT!
I have a friend in Kansas who has tiny little lamps in every bathroom. I adored the look and had to add one and the base actually matched everything!
Thanks so much for coming by and seeing my new bathroom in our farmhouse!
Be sure to visit Susan @ Betweennapsontheporch for more Met. Monday inspiration!
