Guest Bath

If you've been stalking me for a while then you may remember my purple bathroom. It was one of the first rooms I ever painted and I picked this color after seeing another bathroom in a similar shade and loving it.  While I enjoyed it for a while, the bathroom is tiny and windowless so I thought it was time for something a little lighter.


After shopping online I came across this gorgeous Ruffled Waterfall Shower Curtain, but I only paid half that so it must have been on sale. The walls got a coat of Cumulus Cloud by Martha Stewart.


I hate towel racks, so I replaced them with hooks from Hobby Lobby, which of course are over looked by Lucy the Duck {so named by Twilight Sparkle}. Lucy is from Iron Willow in Canton, which is also where I've gotten many a sign, my angel heart, and my turquoise angel wings.


I refinished the cabinets with Rust-oleum Cabinet Transformation, which I highly recommend, it's fool proof and looks fantastic! Out with the builder beige! I used one box to do both bathrooms, 70 bucks, what a great deal for an upgraded look.


The mirror was half off at Hobby Lobby, the sign is from there also, and the light fixture I {DID MYSELF!} bought from Lowes. Honestly once you figure out how to change a light fixture it so addicting, I've changed out 6 different ones around the house already. I only wish we could survive without ceiling fans, a chandy in every room would be my dream come true!


Oh yeah and can't forget my little helper who's learning to use the hammer and drill ;) Never to young to start them off!

  3. Looks great! I love Lucy the Duck. It's funky and cool. And I definitely agree about never too soon to start the kiddos off! I love letting my daughter "help." It's great bonding time, and she gets to be creative. It's a win-win!

  9. Super cute. I love remodeling my house. I have painted countertops with countertop transformation stuff, refinised vanities, layed pergo, changed numerous light fixtures and the list goes on. It is almost relaxing. You did a super job. I love the goose head.

  14. Love this! I am going to try to remember what you used on your cabinets. In fact, I am putting it in my notes on my phone. I need to update my bathroom cabinets. If I screw it up, how easy is it to take off? I know, I know, you said foolproof but that doesn't necessarily apply to this fool!!
