I just completed a bathroom refresh, and it feels so good. I wanted to update the oak cupboards and shiny brass fixtures that were so popular in the 80s. I chose a fabric to sew simple curtains that introduced some blues (adding this table from Hobby Lobby)–and inexpensive sheers from JCPenney. I painted the yellow walls a terra cotta (”Toasted Coconut,“ Glidden). I kept the 1930s/40s vintage tile–it’s grown on me–except in the shower, because of mold due to the rotting wood lathe underneath. I then lightened the cupboards by painting them a cream color and decided to paint the light fixtures as well. I chose dark bronze fixtures for the sink, cabinets, and the shower head, and framed some inexpensive greeting cards to hang on the wall. Finally, for a pop of color, I hung a green clock that I got from Target for $7.
Below is a photo of what it looked like when I started. Then pictures of the finished project. See what you think!
