I finally decided to work on the guest bathroom. The burgundy shower curtain was a wedding registry gift but is no longer our style and it is too short and so dark. I also wanted to replace the small clearance flower print above the toilet with a larger piece. The cheap builder-grade vinyl flooring, laminate countertop and cabinets will not be going anywhere since this isn’t our forever home.
I found a 2-in-1 shower curtain/liner at Tuesday Morning in a pretty light blue damask pattern. It is extra long, so I was able to raise the rod close to the ceiling. By using a 2-in-1 curtain, the window above the tub can still provide light to the room even when the curtain is closed. I like how the blue curtain ties the room to the guest bedroom. Everything feels lighter and brighter with the new color scheme.
I also brought in an ivy plant to give a little life to the room. They are supposed to be a good air purifier! I am not in love with my artwork (I was trying to replicate this art piece from Z Gallerie):
I found a canvas at Goodwill and used drywall spackling and a comb to create the strié. I topped it with Folk Art’s acrylic paint in Metallic Pearl White to try and give it that pearlescent sheen. It fills the wall better than the other print and it was a lot less than the $400 inspiration, so for now it will stay put.
Side-by-side comparison (thanks to Bradley’s new camera/lens, I can get so much more of the room in the shot!):
