Guest Bathroom

After

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.

Before

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!):

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
