My final day for discussing past DIY projects and I thought I would talk about how I redecorated our master bathroom. When we bought our new home I loved everything about it…except the master bathroom. It was the only room that had not been updated and I wanted to give it a look that spoke more to me.
The bathroom originally had stark white walls, a towel bar that I did not like, and a huge mirror over the double sinks. It also had a separate room for the toilet with no windows and a dull light. I always felt like I was entering a weird closet and referred to it as the dungeon.
So…I started with paint in a nice soothing green, added accents of purple with rugs, shower curtain and towels. I then added a sticker of London’s skyline to the huge mirror to add something to break up its size. My husband and I went to London on our honeymoon and now each morning I remember that trip and it’s wonderful memories as I brush my teeth.
I found the perfect wordle to add to the wall and two lanterns to hang over the soaker tub. The final fix was to add some decor to the dungeon so I placed a mural of a tree on the wall. Each tree branch and leaf had to be placed individually but I loved the outcome and it doesn’t seem so drab now. I also was able to place the falling leaves and birds exactly where I wanted them. I knew adding the green paint in here would only make it darker so I loved adding this mural and it only took a couple hours, but I am a bit of a perfectionist and somewhat crazy when it came to leaf placement.
I found the wordle, tree mural, and lanterns on Ebay and at a minimal cost. I love the way my bathroom turned out and feel proud that I was able to design and implement this redo. My obsession with HGTV may have had something to do with it.
I hope my next DIY project post is from this summer’s list…it is quite long. What have you planned to work on this summer? Any DIY projects on your list?
