Bathroom Makeover

Hi, friends!!  I just wanted to pop on here and share a few pics of the makeover I did to my main bathroom. 

I’ve always loved the wallpaper that I had before, but I’ve had it for many, many years and every time I’d wipe down the walls, I would catch a seam and rip the paper a little.  I knew I’d have to remove it some day, but it gave the bathroom so much color and I was afraid that if I just painted the walls, it would look too plain.  I had no idea what color scheme I even wanted to go with.

I had found a shower curtain (made by Family Heirloom Weavers) and a curtain valance that I absolutely loved!   Every time I went to Amish country, I would debate whether I should buy them or not.  Both were in shades of brown/taupe.  I bought a couple of crocks at an antique mall and when I got them home, I played around with a display on the bathroom vanity.  I started to visualize the shower curtain and the valance and before I knew it, I figured out exactly what I wanted to do with the bathroom.  It took me a few weeks to gather the things that I wanted to put in there (the sconces took 3 weeks to come in) but I waited until I had everything before I started the makeover.  I am SO happy with the way it turned out!!

Here are a couple pictures of my bathroom BEFORE:

I’ll try to get a better pic of this and post it later!

The paint color I used is called “Dry Dock” by Sherwin Williams.  I bought the curtains and valance at Country Gatherings in Berlin (Amish country).  The valance is from the Home Collection by Raghu and the shower curtain is by Family Heirloom Weavers.  The vanity cabinet and faucet are from Home Depot and the vanity top is from Lowes.  The sconces are from Katie’s Light House that I ordered through Primitive Keepings and I ordered the chandelier online from Eagle-Emporium

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 

Well, that’s all for now.  My hubby and I are heading to Lancaster, PA for a couple of days to check out the “other” Amish country!  I’ll be back in a few days with, hopefully, lots of pictures!!

Until Next time. . . . .Kris
