I'm excited to show you my FIRST ever whole-room makeover :)
But you have to promise to be kind...
It is my first time, after all.
Here's what we started with:
This was my first time to attempt getting wallpaper down... so my mom helped me out a LOT.
Thanks mom :)
I love the tile in the shower and floor but hated the wallpaper (I guess it could have been worse, though).
It made me not want to hang things on the wall because everything just looked...ugh...
And the shiny gold just drove me up a wall.
So I took it all down :)
I was wayyy too excited to have an excuse to try out beadboard... I conned my dad into putting it up for me.
I'm pretty sure I was jumping up and down.
Love me some beadboard.
Here it is with wallpaper stripped and beadboard going up:
I agonized over what color paint to use in this room.
Since it's in our bedroom, it had to go somewhat with the deep blue and browns on the wall.
I decided on a blue-gray color from Sherwin Williams called 'Krypton'.
I LOVE this color. It made me giddy as it was going up :)
Here she is...all beautified.
Now...yes, it would look much better with a pretty shower curtian.
I know that's what you're thinking.
BUT stop right there.
I have a phobia of shower curtians that I can't see through.
Are you laughing?
I saw a movie when I was somewhere around eight and it was this horrific scene of someone pretending to be dead in the bathtub then his wife walking in and he lifted his head out...
I just saw a part of the scene.
But I absolutely CANNOT stand to not be able to see into the bathtub.
So clear it is.
I actually hung stuff on the walls though :)
You'll be seeing more about that "find rest O my soul" hanging soon.
I love how the crisp white towels look against the wall.
My hubby has strict instructions that they are for decoration only.
White towels with boys. Yikes.
It looks so HUGE now.
I ADORE this mirror. Before we just had a standard white square mirror.
There's nothing standard about this.
A friend of mine gave it to me FREE.
It was that brassy gold color but Heirloom white and black glaze gave it a new life.
Doesn't it make the bathroom look romantic?
I think so.
This thingy (really, what IS it?) was black. More heirloom white.
I think it's perfect for holding all my bracelets.
I'm a bracelet fanatic.
Not so much on shoes and earrings though. :)
Do you guys remember this print I made?
Well it ended up in here.
I printed it off and put it in the front of this jewelry hanger.
With some pretty linen behind it, it was an easy update!
I put my 'hope' up that I got from Hobby Lobby.
This was my little paradise to escape to when life got hard during all that horrible stuff.
A long bath does wonders :)
But this helped me remember not to give up hope. Ever.
And it paid off.
I am in love with this room.
That chandelier picture by the door is what inspired the Krypton color.
I love chandy's.
And I love beadboard too.
(and my fabulous father who put it all up)
And of course, you can't forget the horrible gold fixtures throughout my lovely house.
But not in the master bath anymore...
I got oil-rubbed bronze pulls for the drawers and a new towel bar.
Oil Rubbed Bronze spraypaint did the job for the
*Shower Curtian Rod
*Toilet Paper Holder
*Hand Towel Holder
(Best tip I have for spraying the metal rods is to lightly sand them... it helps the paint to not drip.)
It's amazing the difference a new fixture can make.
So what do you guys think of my first real room makeover?
Are you as thrilled as I am?
