~our guest bath~ {a before & after}

Our little guest bathroom......
well, it probably needs a major gut job.
But, no time for that right now, so I decided to
spruce it up with new paint and a few new accessories.

I bought this rug, this shower curtain, and a few paint by numbers.
I accessorized with vintage silver plate containers and trays.
The mirror is from Target and can be found here.


Don't you just love before and afters?


The paint before was Seal by Martha Stewart with some old cream on the bottom that looked dirty.
We used to have a pedestal sink in here which I liked, but opted for a cabinet for more storage.
This one is from Lowes, and you can find it here.


I decided to paint the walls in Martha Stewarts Glass Of Milk. Then I painstakingly taped off stripes.


After I made sure the tape was on there really good, I painted over the top with Graphite by Ben Moore, the same color as our bedroom.


I am really enjoying the stripes~I think it was well worth the time it took to tape off!
Hope you like!

xoxo

i'm about to re-do my husband's bathroom which hasn't been updated in 9 years! a record for me!! i'm doing it in gray and white and have been considering "seal" or "graphite" after seeing it in your house. I love the old silver pieces you've used on the vanity...the whole bathroom looks wonderful!

So fun, Melaine! Love this color...similar to Iron Ore from Sherwin! I am in the middle of some wall work over here myself with similar colors! In love with all grays right now! Have an awesome week! Hugs...-Kennesha

Looks fantastic. I love the horse prints - bringing the outdoors inside. Conversely, the dark colors seem to brighten the bathroom up and I love the stripes!!

Anne Boykin said...

What a cool idea! I love the stripes and the paint-by-numbers are perfect on those clips. Beautiful.

Sue@pineapplehillinteriors said...

Love it! What a difference some stripes can make. Love the paint by numbers.

The Texas Cowgirl said...

The stripes are beautiful! I love the art hung with the clips too!

Melaine Thompson said...

thank you so much for all the compliments! The clips to hang the paint by numbers I got at a flea market in California. The deer paint by number is from a local antique shop {m and m} and the horse one was just a steal at the goodwill {$5.99!}

The towels are from TJ Maxx, have seen them at Marshalls as well! Hope that answered everyones questions! xoxo

Fabulous makeover, Melaine. I especially love the paint by number art against the graphic stripes. ~Sarah
