New Bathroom

When we moved into our house 8 years ago, I didn't take the time to paint or change much of anything.  It's not that I necessarily "liked" or would have chosen the paint or decor of our house, but I didn't dislike it enough to take the time to change it.  Well, I've been a stay at home mom for the last 6 years, and since I spend most of my time at the house, I am always looking at what things I would like to change.  We've been talking about redoing our bathroom for the last couple years, and this spring, we actually finally got to work.  Yes, you read that right.  This whole bathroom project started back in March.  One thing I must admit is that I am the queen of unfinished projects!  Not that I'm proud of it, but it is what it is.  (For instance, before we even got "Project Bathroom" finished, I started ripping down wallpaper off the walls in our entryway while Ronnie was at work one day.  I'm sure he was real thrilled to come home to my new project started!)

So here you have it. Unfortunately, I didn't take a whole lot of before pictures and my bathroom is narrow, so it was hard to get after pictures, but I think you'll get a good idea of what it looked like before and what it looks like now.

 We painted the walls off white and painted the medicine cabinet, vanity, mirror frame, closet doors, and floor boards black. *Figured it would be cheaper to paint than to replace.  But, we did replace the toilet, sink top, faucets and light fixture. 
*My husband and brother in law replaced the old tile floor with beautiful, new tiles...probably my favorite change in the bathroom.
 *I originally picked a smaller light fixture I wasn't happy with, so my husband very kindly replaced it with the one pictured. It's a little big for our small bathroom, but I love it!
*And I put these few pictures on the wall to add a little color...not sure they go with the bathroom, but I found them at Bed Bath & Beyond for $9 and they matched my color scheme, so we kept them!
And, lastly, a peek inside the bathroom closet....before and after.  The clutter in that closet had been driving me insane for quite some time!  I just used a black and white designed contact paper I found at Target to line the shelves and bought some red boxes (not pictured) to "organize" all of my stuff. 

Finally, our Bathroom Project is complete and I couldn't be happier!  Now, time to get to work on that entryway!
