Bathroom Makeover

We started some redecorating projects several months ago. This week you'll get some good updates on our progress.

We purchased a new sectional in lovely chocolate brown and it DID NOT go with anything! The paint, curtains, art and all the red (besides the brick floor) had to go. So here was the first of many projects. Here's our powder room. It was hard to say goodbye to the beautiful red that my dad so painstakingly cut around the edges for us. Sadly, it was time for a change.

AFTER
I just love this cool beachy blue color. It's called Seaside Village from Lowes under their signature collection colors - probably the Eddie Bower ones . We did this small bathroom and the main family room in this color. It looks soooo nice with that new brown sectional. And the black and white accents just make my heart sing!

I used Becky's idea for interchangeable art. These are the same frames leftover from Christmas - I had a collection of vintage Santa prints displayed in the bathroom. All I did was a Google search for flower images, chose 4 that I liked, and had them printed to 5x7's at Costco for 39 cents a piece. I took out the Santa pics and traded for flowers. It was so easy! (And if you click on that link to go back to the actual post of the Santa prints you will see that the bathroom has been painted since before Christmas - that's how long this makeover has been in process.)

The old red was pretty, but I love the new blue, too. Light and fresh!

It looks so good! But I liked the red too. Sometimes it's not so much about not liking what's there, it's about needing the change itself. Keeping things fresh and getting rid of that "stale" feeling....or maybe that's just me....

Yep, the red was great, but I sure do love the brown with the beachy color too. I love everything you do with your house, it's fun to see it constantly changing too.
