Our guest bath has been one of those rooms that we really haven’t had to do too much with. After a failed attempt with a pale teal, this list room got the royal Quill treatment like the rest of our first floor. This is also the first time that I’ve painted the ceiling of a room the same color as the walls, and I must say that I’m a fan.
I wouldn’t say this room is finished but in an effort to share a more real-time/real life view on the blog here it is. Ultimately I would like to swap out that DIY artwork above with something else along with a rug swap, preferably something vintage.
This little window sill is probably my favorite in our whole house. It’s the original marble, but it’s the only one in the house that is white.
The frame on the mirror along with the sconces (seen in the first picture) was mismatched for the longest time. I’m not sure why they haven’t painted the same color but part of the updates for the room included a fresh coat of black paint for everything…you know the oil based kind that is good for metal but bad for clean up? Yeah…that stuff. Insert frustrated face here, I got that crap all over me (as I usually do when I’m painting) and it’s super fun to wash off…it’s opposite day.
Here’s something embarrassing. I couldn’t freakin’ figure out how to style a toilet for ages. Seriously. Then on Saturday, I was like “let’s try the aloe plant in that cruddy pot down in the basement.” Boom. Hashtag nailed it. At least for my font & aloe loving heart.
I swear, when I take the pressure off of myself to “finish” a room and have it be perfect, everything just seems to fall into place. Sure I’m still wanting to make a few changes but after three years in this house, I’m realizing that the swap outs and tweaks are just my norms and I’m finally okay with it.
Oh yeah, and that basket with extra tp may be my favorite Goodwill score ever. I’ve also hidden another basket inside of it for trash.
This definitely isn’t one of those brand-spanking-new room reveals but I really couldn’t be more excited to share this room how it is now. Everything is original to the house except that the wall tiles outside of the shower were painted by a previous owner. We have a few cracked floor tiles but I’m learning that’s hardly a thing to flip out about.
I know this is a little bit different than what you’re used to seeing here but I hope you like it!
Happy Tuesday Friends!
