Master bathroom

Until this last week our master bathroom was the only white room in the house.

I like color... a lot. As seen in this room, and this room, and this room.

So it was only a matter of time before those walls were covered in color.
I knew I wanted it to coordinate with the master bedroom so I decided to use the leftover paint from the bedroom and mix in some white to lighten the paint color and keep the bathroom bright.

So here it is my friends ...

A few close-ups...




We have a huge glass block window above our tub that lets in tons of natural light which is awesome.


Problem is that the bathroom window is on the main floor and looks out at the neighbors yard. Needless to say it HAS to be covered but I still wanted lots of light so I made this curtain out of thin white cotton fabric. It covers the window but still lets the light in... perfect.




On the back wall of the bathroom I wanted to do a warm neutral color so I used my FREE Glidden paint (WAHOO, I luuuuuvv free stuff and I really LUUUVVVV this color!!!!).


Forest Khaki is the name of the color and I seriously want to cover my whole house with it.

AFTER:

I used the same rod iron piece above the towels I just spray painted it dark brown.

I LOVE how it turned out but with all the rooms painted now what will I paint?

hmmmmmmm...

You could come and fix up your mother's sewing room. It's the only room in the house that has not been wither painted or repainted since we moved in.

Great job as always!

Love,
Dad

Beautiful transformation. I especially love the window treatment. Where did you find the rod iron treatment above the window? Is it a towel holder? I love, love, love it!

love the color combo!

I also love the little mirror that pulls out...how fun!

Jessica said...

I love it! I wish I could convince my hubby to let me paint. For some odd reason, he thinks paint is a huge and permanent decision. I disagree. Your rooms look great!
