One of the things that I was most excited about when we bought our forever home was not having to “play it safe” anymore with design decisions. And yet here we are a year into our remodel and our house is pretty grey and white. Don’t get me wrong; I love the rooms we’ve already designed, but I was ready to push ourselves out of our color comfort zone a little. Our half bath makeover is a huge departure from our typical design palette, and we’ve had a lot of fun already with the project. Over the last month I shared with you how we painted over the 1980’s era wallpaper on the walls and how we used milk paint to transform our builder’s grade laminate vanity, well now the vanity area and focal point of the bathroom is complete!
Here’s a reminder of the before:
We still have to tile the floor, install the new toilet, and decorate the rest of the room. I know a green vanity isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love having a fun space that will definitely surprise guests. And what better room than a half bath to have some fun with color?
