Our Guest Bathroom Makeover

So, it's not done-done but I did promise you last Friday that I'd share the updated guest bath in our home.

We started off with a pretty typical room: off-white walls, mirror, vanity, potty, tub. 

Not long before we moved into our home, I won a giveaway with Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box (a wonderful source for yummy recipes, by the way) for CSN Stores -- which you may now know is Wayfair.  Lots and lots of home stuff, and at great prices.  With the gift card I won, I chose a new shower curtain and got it for mere pennies. 


It's still available on the site if you're interested, but backordered currently.  Here's a link to it.  Only $22.99!

After we moved into our home, I decided it would work perfectly in the guest bath.  I just love the bamboo trellis pattern.

Our bathroom still looked a little generic, so we decided to have it painted at the same time that we had the crown molding put up, caulked, and painted white. 

I'm pretty good about picking out paint colors -- quick and decisive.  Other decisions (art, furniture, etc) take me months of mulling!  For this room, I wanted either a punchy coral-pink or a darker beige.  We ended up with five color swatches and left them taped up on the wall for a few days to observe.  We purchased two coral-colored sample paints a few days later.


After a unanimous agreement on the painted swatch on the above left, we bought a gallon and waited on pins and needles to see it up on the wall.

And the finished product -- check out the pretty crown molding too!


We both like it a lot.  The other paint colors in our home are rather muted, so this is our funky, flamboyant bathroom. 

The wall that you see in the picture below is bugging me in these pictures.  I love my little sun glass collection, but it's just way too dinky for this wall.  I think I'll move it to a tinier wall and put a larger piece of art here.


You may notice the hand towels that coordinate with the shower curtain -- the curtain was a little long for the placement of our curtain rod, so my sweet mom hemmed it and used the leftover fabric to add to plain white towels.


This wall cabinet houses all of my bath salts, oils, and bubble bath.  A girl's gotta have her R&R!


And here's the shadowbox I posted about.



The black and white picture below -- yes, it's real.  And it's me.  And my cousin.  In an outhouse in Georgia.


I love having paper guest towels in this bathroom.  These are Caspari, and it's hard to tell, but the tree branches are metallic gold. 

My favorite spots to find Caspari on a great deal are TJ Maxx and Tuesday Morning.  The mother of pearl guest towel holder is from Bed Bath & Beyond.


And this wastebasket is from Target.  The light blue interior sold me!


The crown molding really gave this room a perfect finishing touch.  We had it put in two bathrooms, three rooms, and a hallway.  A small investment for such a nice finished touch.


Any fun ideas for that large wall that currently houses the sun glass?  I'd love some antique ceiling tins with a chippy white paint finish or maybe a fun piece of art.

  3. Love it! My goal really would be to have a shower curtain that went all the way to the ceiling. For that..it would have to be custom made though.
    Everything looks GREAT!
