Our realtor thought I was nuts.
Yes, but look at that adorable chrome pedestal sink!
I had a vision for this room that would turn it into the sweet little jewel box of our vintage house.
And as you may have figured out, when I have a vision, it is my husband who comes to the rescue, making that vision a reality.
"You remove the wallpaper, and I will paint."
Piece of cake!
After a few hours of peeling and scraping and smelling like vinegar, we then primed the walls with a nice coat of Kilz before adding the new paint.
Are you ready for the Big Reveal? Here it is!
I know what you are thinking.
"Gray, gray, everybody is using gray. It is so trendy."
I thought that, too. And normally, gray is the last color I'd ever pick for a room in my house. I tend to pick warm colors over cooler tones for almost every project. But the tiles and grout had just a hint of gray in them, and I knew that this was the only color that would "make sense" of the yellow in this tiny little bathroom.
Total expenses: 2 new light fixtures (Lowe's), a quart of Kilz and a quart of paint (Lowes), new curtain rod and curtain (Target), new bath mat/shower curtain/hand towels (Target).
Grand total for this bathroom remodel: around $150 dollars.
That beats a gut job any day of the week!
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Give it a makeover and love it instead.
