The past few weeks, I've been anxiously awaiting this post! For me, most projects hit 90-99% completion, and I call it good. With this one, I was determined to finish it COMPLETELY before posting. Well, I'm happy to say it's finally done! This was a week-long project that I managed to extend by blaming a bad saw (it really was a bad saw, though), thus taking three weeks.
This bathroom has actually been in the works for several years (at least four). Back then, I installed IKEA cabinets for hidden storage. Last spring, on a whim, I had a solar tube with fan installed in place of the previous bath fan, which is what inspired me to finally finish the space. These photos were all taken without any lights on a clear but not-sunny day.
The colors were inspired by the existing beautiful YET HORRIBLY INSTALLED shower tile. Ironically, as I neared completion on this room, I came to the conclusion the tile will need to be removed sooner rather than later.
Here's what this latest round of room refresh entailed, in order:
SOURCES: wallpaper Milton & King Yucatan // wall color (discontinued, but available by request) Sherwin-Williams Dewy (similar to Fleeting Green) // trim color Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace (mixed into SW Pro-Classic) // vanity color SW Halcyon Green // mirror color SW Quite Coral // rug Safavieh Veranda Srbislava in Green/Terracotta (Overstock) // vanity lights Hampton Bay Manor in Black/Brass (Home Depot)
