Guest Bathroom Remodel!

Poor sad little bathroom. Painted European White and blah.
No pretty rugs (potty training boys will do that you know) Nothing special about it.
Ahhhhh..much better. A shiny new fixture, a little battenburg lace and gingham ribbon...
A cute white shelf to perch on. I love my new birdie and topiary I found at TaiPan Traders yesterday! The bird? $2.00! The topiary? $9.00!
Some pretty white beadboard goes a long way to make this space (and this girl) happy!
Didn't Dan do a great job?! He and I don't work well in the kitchen together. But I painted the room and he did the finish carpentry (after buying a few new tools and saws of course!) I had so much fun doing this with him. Great job babe! I am waiting for either a good sale or a few more paychecks to replace the light fixture in there. You know how that goes.

I see some master bedroom crown molding in my future!

Oh, I love it! I like the white with the green too. It keeps it fresh and a little feminine. I'll have to check out Tai Pan. I've never been there but have passed by it a few times.

Parker said...

It looks beautiful. I imagine you wore overalls while you painted and looked super cute.

Great idea Kristen, and great job carrying it out Dan! The bathroom is gorgeous, good choice on the color :)

KEYSHA said...

Oh wow! It turned out perfect! I forgot to stick my head in there last night and check out the finished product--thank heavens you're a good blogger or it might have been awhile until I see it finished!

Great baby shower by the way.

Kerstin said...

It is so beautiful! I really, really love the green....what is it called? My "celery" didn't work out so well. :(

Kris said...

It's Homestead Resort Pale Olive from the Lowe's Historical Collection. (Funny to put in a 4 year old house but oh well!)

Jessica said...

Very very cute!! I love your blog and have passed along an award to you! Head on over to my blog to claim.

TAMI said...

Love your new bathroom. The color is great and the extra touches really make it sweet. Love home projects that come together so well. Good luck on the Master Bedroom.

I love it! Your house is seriously so cute and you inspire me to want to actually paint. It probably won't happen for awhile but you do inspire me to want to do it!! :)

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Just perfect!!! Love all the special little touches. Wish I had a handy Dan around here~

I love bead board it hides every thing that should be gone. What a great bathroom now and one that you want to have people use.

Amber said...

Great job! I like that shade of green--I think green is a hard color to find the right shade of, but I love the one you chose.

Lori said...

Very nice, love the topiary and bird!

Kristen said...

Wow... Looks great, good choices!!!

southerninspiration said...

Came over from Kimba......and she's not joking! GREAT job. I love that precious little shelf! And I don't know about TaiPan.......sounds like a fun place!

Suzanne
The whole new guest bath is adorable!

Kara said...

This is gorgeous! I love the green color contrast with the white beadboard. All the little touches make it just beautiful!!

AnNicole @ OurSuburbanCottage said...

I just saw you over at Kimba's. I love your bathroom! You did a great job. Thanks for the inspiration. I literally have a can of paint and a roller brush by my side right now because I'm trying to spruce up our master bath today. I'll keep coming back to take a peek if my motivation starts dwindling :).

Jennifer said...

I just found you thanks to Kimba. Great makeover! The color is beautiful.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

We have been putting up beadboard, chair rail, and crown moulding in our girls room - you did a beautiful job. It was harder to paint the beadboard than I originally thought!

Kimba said...

Hi Kristen! Just wanted to let you know that I linked to this project from my post today. I love your makeover.
