Our upstairs bathroom was tired. And sad. And looking a little old-ladyish for lack of a better description. It had zero spark or personality. So I decided to give it a face-lift.
The ceilings are vaulted and there are about 12 layers of cranberry paint on those walls. So a paint overhaul was out of the question because it would require the hiring of professionals (and that’s just not in the budget). It’s also not in the budget to get new cabinets (or paint these lovely, solid oak but hideous colored brown ones) to brighten up the joint. This was my girls bathroom, so I decided that it needed to LOOK like it was the bathroom belonging to two little girls (and shared by a third sister – and their big brother part time. SORRY for all the pink, dude!)
Here are the before pictures:
Don’t you hear the music from the SNL skit “Debbie Downer” when you look at it?
Wah . .Wah . .
And here’s what I decided to do:
New shower curtain and liner (50% off on clearance rack with coupon from Kohl’s): $15.00 for both
For a little over $100.00, I gave a face-lift to a really drab and boring room in our house. It’s now colorful and lively! While it’s only a bathroom, it’s the first room the girls are in to start their day, and I wanted it to be bright and cheerful. Bye-bye sad bathroom!
I’d love to hear what you think! Do you have a room that could use an accessory face-lift in your house??
