Bathroom Update (Really Late)!

Way back in January I wrote a couple of posts about my husband & Dad re-doing our one & only bathroom. (I live with my husband, a 17 year-old boy & a 13 year-old boy, so I'll give you a minute to think about my having to share a bathroom with them.)

Anyway I posted
here & here. The second one has the picture from the paint brochure showing what I was aiming for.

Well my DH worked his heart out & made me a beautiful bathroom.

This one shows the color best I think.

Pretty light fixture over the mirror & vanity.

Cupboard over the toilet. With this arrangement we have learned to always keep the lid of the toilet down. After having some tweezers & a toothbrush fall into the bowl that is.

A little wider shot. (Please ignore the mess. See above re: sharing bathroom with 3 men.)

I have a perfect fabric for the shower curtain. I bought it in a remnant bin about 2 years ago & I'm about 1 yard too short! My mother, the fabic queen is currently hunting for something to coordinate to add onto it.

i have a cabinet above my toilet too and have to be very careful to keep the potty lid closed too! nothing like your hairbrush falling in the toilet to really spoil your morning! :(

Mimi it looks beautiful! LOL I don't even need 30 seconds, we have 3 boys and used to have only 1 bathroom too! Ironically you and I have super similar tastes right down to the sink choice and accent colors. Check this out http://www.3sidesofcrazy.com/2009/02/house-update-chronicles-of-nightmare_17.html

Okay, that bathroom is so gorgeous! Usually when people post do-it-themselves makeovers, I'm always less than wowed with the results, but not yours! I would PAY YOU to make my bathroom look that good. Great job! Just stopped by to say thanks for entering my Support the Troops giveaway and for following! I’ll be drawing two winners on Tuesday. Hope you’re one of them!

You have an adorable bathroom! We have a similar cupboard over our toilet as well, and I love it.
