Bathroom Talk June 22, 2014

We are one more room down in the fight against wallpaper at our house.  Us – 6; House – 4

Back in February, I got inspired on a cold snowy day (of which we had a lot this winter!)  I looked at the flowery wallpaper in our bathroom and thought, “This is a tiny room. I can knock this out in a weekend if I pushed through.”  So I started tearing wallpaper down.  I got 2 walls done, and it was so refreshing.  The walls still had plenty of residue on them, but they were white, and that felt good.  Then life happened (as it usually does.)  The reality of a winter without much real estate business hit.  And since our bathroom update was going to require more than just paint (new mirror, new towel bars, potentially new floor), we had to put it off.  My dream of getting the bathroom done before our trip to Disney didn’t get realized.

But once May came and before our weekends were taken over by yard work, I knew I had to put the pedal to the metal (or porcelain as the case may be in the bathroom!)  Jeremy and I went back and forth on colors – from bright green to blue to gray and back to green.  We went back and forth on mirrors – frameless to white-framed to black-framed.  So many decisions, but we finally agreed and went for it.  It feels so good to have it done, and I smile every time I walk in the bathroom now.  A small update, but a big impact!
