Bathroom: Before and After!

     Sorry it took me so long to get my act together for this post. The husbandman and I took his younger brother to Harding (the husbandman's Alma Mater) for their freshman/transfer orientation. It was really nice to go back to Searcy, to see everyone and revisit our old haunts, but I didn't have internet like I thought I would.

      So finally, here is the before and after post!

Before:


And After!

That's my mom's old surfboard on the wall. My dad was stationed in Hawaii when I was little, and we all surfed, but my mom's board was the only one that made it make to the mainland.

     I'm very happy with it. It finally looks finished. The hardest part of this room is that it gets absolutely no natural light. So making it look bright takes extreme colors that I would never be brave enough to use otherwise. The husbandman says I used colors too close to the Gators colors but I'm ignoring that for now.


     I sneaked in a little extra detail on either side of the closet, by turning the strips sideways. No one ever sees them except coming through the side door or when getting into the shower, but the still make me happy.
    What do you think? Better? Too much color? Or a tropical bathroom to last?

Thanks!! Painting stripes is so much easier than I thought it would be! I want to play with tone-on-tone now, with varying glosses. Like one matte stripe, and one high gloss, or something like that.

Definitely like it! I love all the color, especially if that area doesn't get too much light. Great job!

Love the fun colors and stripes that you used. Your mom's surf board adds the perfect touch. (I'm visiting from Serenity Now.)
