Bathroom Remodel

When Allison arrived home in August for a 5 week stay, she asked if she could replace the dirty, worn-out bathmats in the kid’s bathroom. Knowing that she hated the bathroom decor, I suggested that she remodel the whole bathroom. She loved the idea and came up with a plan. It turned out that she was so busy working (med. school family practice rotation) that I did all the work! She served as the interior decorator and  pretty much chose the colors and decor, while I provided the labor!

Before:

Dated green wallpaper, cream and navy curtains, seashell decor, rusty brass light fixture and tarnished brass drawer pulls, chrome towel holders and faucet—We never quite realized how mis-matched this bathroom was!

After:

We replaced the light fixture, drawer pulls, towels, bathmats, and curtains and painted the walls yellow and the woodwork and cabinets white. Everything is in a black, white and chrome color scheme. The bathmats did get replaced, and are black. (Ignore that woman behind the curtain!)

I was pretty proud of myself for changing out the light fixture without a glitch. I’m pretty competent at wallpapering and painting, but  am generally inept at any kind of “fixing” and electrical work.

It looks so much bigger and brighter now!
