The Bathroom...adding some "chippy" charm...

For Mother's Day my sweet husband did some painting in our "Master" bathroom.  We went from green to an "aqua-like" blue.  It wasn't exactly the color I thought it would be based on that little paint swatch...but I just decided to go with it.  A bright happy color might be fun for a change??
Rather that talk through all the little details I thought I would just show you the "before and after" and you can play a little game of "What's different?" :) 

This was the last bit of green at our house....

Now I think the room coordinates better with the grays and neutrals of the rest of the house....

Of course lots of "chippy" touches.

I LOVE my new "towel holders".

And speaking of towels...

Are you a "match-y" towel person?
Not me...I like to mix and match colors and patterns.  I went with a black, white and grey scheme this time.

What do you think of my new foot hooks?

So that's it...
My tiny little "Master" bathroom.  Someday I dream of a claw foot tub and "spa-like" experience.  Then I remind myself I'm not really a fan of bathroom cleaning and I am thankful for what I have :)

  17. Your foot hooks are awesome! Love the new color. I looked high and low for the perfect shade of blue for my bathroom and it turned out nothing like I had imagined, so I probably could have just closed my eyes at the paint store and picked something.
