This project definitely ran us over time and over budget, but we were so glad when it was finally completed! I now love this bathroom!
First, I'll show you the before...
Somehow, all of my pictures of our house before we moved in have been lost. :( But, originally this bathroom had a bright orange "accent" wall and the rest was like a yellow-tan. Not pretty.
So then, I decided to use this beautiful purple-grey that I had already painted in our guest room and loved!
But somehow, it was a totally different color in this room. It just seemed dark and purple, really purple. And, it just made this tiny room feel even more tiny!
So, we decided to change it up!
Wanna see it now?!!!
I find the tile on clearance at Lowe's for $0.39 a sq. ft.!!! So, that was really inexpensive!
The downside: We really thought that we were going to get this project done in one weekend. :/ That did not happen... not even close. We spent the first weekend tearing apart the bathroom. We pulled up that ugly linoleum and pulled out the cabinet and realized that there was a huge hole in the wall so that they could fit the cabinet in the first place!
So, we then decided to go with the board and batten so that we didn't have to really worry about all of the holes we would need to fill and patch. (Which we love, but were not planning on... and that added up pretty quickly.)
I still really would like to replace the light fixture, but that will have to be a little further down the road. :)
Such a huge difference...
