You might think, it's just a bathroom. But it's not. I retreat to this room every single night to soak in a scalding bath and forget the world. Before the makeover, all I could concentrate on was the sloppy green paint slapped over the sloppy red paint. And now...
Our hotel bathroom. Small but elegant. The walls and ceiling are cream (after a hefty dose of primer.)
Ikea helped us choose a soothing print.
That's a metal curtain rod with sliding curtain rings and a spa curtain. Just the way it should be.
A real medicine cabinet in place of the glass and chrome. If you'll remember, this cabinet was so ugly but only $5 on Craigslist. I spruced it up.
We replaced the mirror and added a towel holder.
We replaced those hideous lights. We painted the bathroom trim white (and we used painter's tape.)
This Ikea find gives us a little dose of Restoration Hardware. I love it.
When I am taking a bath now, I feel like I'm in an old restored hotel. Most of the makeover came from Craigslist or clearance racks or a bucket of paint, but it feels rich and calming and beautiful. It's a tiny room, but I think it's my favorite one now.
