I created this board to see how my ideas worked together. With the exception of the trellis fabric and embellished shower curtain, which may happen at some point, I was able to incorporate many of the same or similar details into the actual space.
Before & After:
I'm thrilled with the Marshalls' mirror I spray-painted Pimiento and the two West Elm rugs that hide a multitude of sins.
The curtains in this Covington fabric are my favorite element in the room. The cheerful pattern and colors offered an easy jumping off point for the rest of the space, including the paint color. In person, the walls are a bit richer and not so washed out. After testing several samples, I mixed my two favorites, Benjamin Moore's Feather Grey (thanks to Holly of West Pear Avenue for recommending it) and Blue Haze. My local paint store color matched
it for me.
I learned a lesson after having my light fixture installed. I bought the fixture before I bought my medicine chest/mirror and measured for centering based upon the width of my vanity. As a result, the light fixture feels a bit puny to me.
These two watercolors (in frames I already owned) are actually pages torn from a traveller's guide of Anguilla where we spent our honeymoon and have visited a few times. I hope to gather some more artwork/momentos to frame all the way up to where the molding will be. (someday??).

While I have lots of finishing touches still to tackle, I am really happy with the transformation from unfinished and sloppy to bright, airy and cheerful. Now if someone else would clean it for me, I'd be all set!
Next up: painting and stenciling my hallway and basement, hopefully before the summer's over if the beach, yard and pool don't get in the way too much ; )
Do you have any summer projects lined up or are you smarter than me and take the
Have a great weekend!
