I realized the other day when I was doing some housekeeping here on the blog (as I ignored the dust bunnies on my floor and actual real housework) that I never shared our little main floor coastal bathroom! There’s a sneak peek on my house tour and I’m pretty sure I promised you all at least 6 times I would be posting about it so being a woman of my word here it is (10 months later…)
When we first moved in this bathroom was pretty blah, just beige walls. I was 7 months pregnant with little man when we moved in and towards the end of building I sort of lost my will to design. I had clear ideas for a lot of the house when we started and then near the end I was just sick of making 10,000 decisions and also possibly, just maybe, a smidge, the teensiest smidge hormonal (the Mr. might remember it as a little more than a smidge..). I was all “just paint it all beige”, who cares!!
and then, you know, I immediately cared…
So, about 10 months after we moved in, we added the bead board and I painted the stripes on the wall. Loved it! I loved the stripes so much I was on a huge stripey kick and was all “must stripe all the things!!” but then I remembered all the tedious measuring, taping, re-taping, re-measuring nightmare and decided this little dose of stripey-ness was just enough.
I found these mirrors at a vintage store for $5 each – score! Hello! photobomb (in the middle mirror) by me and my stripey shirt, further proof that I love me some stripes!
I love these wall plaques from Ballard Design, these were another total lucky score. My mom had ordered them from Ballard for her house and they are actually a set of 3, but one was completely smashed inside the box. Ballard Design was totally awesome and just sent her another set and told her to keep the broken set, so I inherited the 2 that weren’t broken.
This bathroom is pretty tiny, it’s on the lake side of the house right off the mudroom so everyone uses it to change into their bathing suits when we have friends out.
It’s pretty much just big enough to turn around in, so there isn’t a whole lot of room for accessories, but I did add this little table with the coral and the photo for a pop of color.
DETAILS – The paint colors in here are the silver side and silver feather, more info on that here in my paint post. The mirror and light fixtures in here are from Lowe’s. The towels and picture frame are from HomeGoods. Not pictured a totally awesome spider man potty seat that we still can’t convince little man to use…
There you have it the grand tour of our little half bath. I’m hoping to share some changes in the master bath later this week too, but you know what probably means 6 months from now :)
