Over the weekend, our entire family came down with a 24 hour stomach virus. It was disgusting and traumatizing and gave me all kinds of new-found respect for parents everywhere.
Initially, I was going to post this makeover as a way to add a little pretty to my Monday, but then realized that I'd be posting a picture of a bathroom. Appropriate or ironic, I can't decide. Either way, this is the before:
Ignore the 60's ads hanging on the wall-- these were taken during our Mad Men New Years Party. We'd had the wasabi green color since we moved in, and while it wasn't completely offensive, it felt dated and unflattering. After:
It was a simple matter to paint the walls gray and hang some inexpensive shelves and artwork. Already it seemed more classic and less.... nauseating.
The 'before' vanity had a builder-grade mirror, that weird half-backsplash on the right hand side, and blonde-wood cabinets. With a little paint and a trip to Ikea, it became this:
My favorite addition was finally finding an excuse to buy this little turquoise rolling cart. I LOVE it. Plus, the kids no longer have an excuse for not replacing the toilet paper roll since the stash is right in front of them.
And that's that. I probably should have taken better photos with an actual camera and some good lighting, but you know. Sick. I'm lucky I made it this far.
How was your weekend?
