Master Bathroom Update

I’ve had the itch to update our bathroom for a while now but just couldn’t fit it in between everything I needed to be doing. Then one day I looked up at the “perfect pair” painted on the wall and couldn’t take it any more. So I walked into the garage, grabbed a can of paint that was leftover from our living room/kitchen area, and went to work! This bathroom has been the same for about 4 years (that’s a long life for decor at our house!), and I was excited to move on. Here’s how it turned out:

I used black and white elements with pops of color and gold details. It fits the current style of our home so much better now… we’ll see how long it lasts. šŸ˜‰

I don’t usually like indoor plants. It’s just a weird quirk, but I decided to try one anyway. I painted a plain pot then planted a few succulents, including some aloe, because we can always use that around here. The elephant was a decoration from one of my baby showers. I think he needs to be in the pot though. “Please live little plants!”

The window is one of my favorite parts of the room. When we first moved in (and I initially decorated) Anderson insisted that this window have a curtain. Our neighborhood only had a few houses then, and the lots around us were empty, so He said he felt like people were peeking in. šŸ™‚ Now that the neighborhood is completely full, and our neighbor’s fence is on the other side of the window, he’s a little more okay with it being uncovered. I never liked how dark it made the bathroom, so I wanted to leave it open this time. But it needed a little something. So I ordered more gold polka dot decals from Land of Nod, then cut them in half, and outlined the window.

When I want to change up a space I like to walk around the house and look for accessories to move around. The pink “A” was a wedding decoration that I had shoved in a closet (y’all know I’m a pack rat) and Prince Charming was in the kitchen. They fit great in the bathroom, and I didn’t have to buy them. So… Yay! I also spray painted our toothbrush holders, laundry basket, and other little details gold.

Do I even need to say that the giant image is my favorite part?!? This picture of Kingston makes me smile for so many reasons. I wanted the piece to be black and white with pops of color, so I mounted a 3’x4′ engineering print from Staples (just like the one I did in our entryway) to a canvas. Then I painted a teal strip across the bottom, hot glued some striped fabric to the top, and finished it with a row of polka dots cut from Pantone paint samples.

Now I’m excited to move on to another project. I think the “drum room” is next!
