Our Bathroom "Renovation"

Alright folks! The bathroom has a new face. Eventually we will gut the bathroom and do a real renovation, but this will have to do for now. I needed to change it because we painted over the wallpaper originally and it looked bad. Also the trim looked like a yellowish white, which really bothered me. It's amazing what paint can do. Take a look...Before..

Will's going to kill me for putting this up..but it perfectly represents how he feels whenever I want to do a new project, and then he has to help!

So after I tore off the paper, I had to spray it with a cleaner spray and then scrape it stuff. Can't you tell, my fake smile?

Our old stained and cracked sink and yellowing faucet, hated to see that go.

I know it's not drastic, but the white trim and blue walls really make the bathroom feel fresh and new.

I brought the blue behind the cabinets as well, it adds a whole new dimension to the bathroom.

Here's a little sneak peak of the motif...still a work in progress, Im not sure about the black, but I thought it would be the best choice.

Ahhh, new sink, new faucet..much better.

That is the worst picture of Will I've ever seen! :) You can tell him I said that! Haha!

Your house - as usual - looks beautiful. (Is it bad if I say I liked the bathroom before too?)
