After a long wait, we're finally giving our hall bathroom a much needed facelift. It's really time for my pink (or pepto bismol as I call it) walls to say farewell! Since Jason has five days off for the holiday weekend, guess what our plans are! Although, I do hope to fit in some family fun into the mix too!
Our hall bathroom is not big at all...it is actually fairly small. But besides our master bath, this one gets the most use. All three of our bathrooms need a makeover, but this one goes first. This is the bathroom used by visitors to our home, most often, as well as the kids' bathroom.
Just to give you an idea of changes to come, I'm going to show you some "before" pictures. I didn't remember to snap pictures until I had already removed alot of the decor in there, but I went ahead and took them. You can at least see the "before" wall color, flooring, cabinets and shower curtain.
Jason and I spent some time awhile back picking out our wall and cabinet colors, countertop, faucet, tile, trim and even the prim shower curtain. Here's the granite countertop and sink that will be put in...it's called desert gold. (And again, this picture doesn't show true colors...it has more gold or mustard in it than it appears here).
The walls are already painted, as I said before, in a warm rich color called bread basket. Although this picture really doesn't do it justice with the lighting in there, you can get some idea from this picture. In person, this color actually has more gold undertones. Please excuse the mess too....the construction zone!
I'm really excited because Jason actually agreed to painting the vanity cabinet in there! I was fine with that rather than buying a new one! It's hard to believe that this guy that loves his wood so much agreed to painting them. We didn't paint our kitchen cabinets because he just couldn't bear to see that great oak covered and I respected his wishes because I want him to be proud of what we do (together) and satisfied with the results too! But, I do have to say, that I'm VERY excited that I get painted cabinetry in here! And the color we picked out is a pretty barn red/burgundy called calico! As a matter of fact, it's already painted and Jason and I distressed it yesterday evening!
So the next step will be putting up trim, laying tile and puttting the cabinet back in; then the countertop and faucet. Also in the plans is a cabinet like Linda's that she tells me is called a tombstone cabinet.
And then the fun part begins.......decorating! Can you tell I'm excited????
