Guest Bathroom

Before Thanksgiving, I got tired of walking into this two tone purple bathroom, so I painted it. For all these months it has been painted but nothing else. We finally completed it. It's one of my favorite rooms in the house now. I did everything in this room (with James looking over my shoulder when I was messing with electricity)

Before:

After:
I changed out the switch and plugs and put on cute bronze plates to match all the other bronze accessories in the room.

I know the people before us had to have spent a lot of money on the towel racks and matching shelves, but they weren't our taste.



We found a nice bronze light that matched the towel racks and light switches.

Our updated guest room

We have spent every waking moment over the past few weeks finishing all our projects that we had started around the house. My parents came to visit this past weekend so I wanted to get the guest room finished.

The before:
We hated this room it was so dark. Once I started painting, I noticed the that the ceiling and baseboards were painted yellow, which added to the darkness in the room.

After:
(sorry about the weird spots on the pictures, I took these pictures quickly before heading to the airport with my iphone camera.) We love how much lighter it is with the blue.

We even changed the light switch to rockers and the plugs to the more updated square ones.
