A New Look

I may have mentioned a few times that I have been changing up my decorating style. Going from a dark country look to lighter colors. Quite a change, wouldn't you say? My husband, bless him, doesn't complain, but I don't think he is completely on board with this new look. He did say that since he married an interior designer, he expected this would happen:)

I had already redone the upstairs a few years ago. It has my craft room and a guest bedroom and the lighter colors worked well up there. I have also been working on the kitchen. This spring I started in on the bathroom and our bedroom. I wanted to do it on a very small budget and it was actually kind of fun doing that.

Today I'll show the bathroom makeover. I made the shower curtain from a sheet and added a valence of a pretty print that I used for the color scheme. The room color was still OK, a very soft yellow, so no painting. Yeah! Then all I needed to do was repaint the little cabinet over the toilet, buy new towels and rug, and add accessories, which I "shopped" for around the house.

Our bathroom is really small. Hard to get a good picture:)
It looks better in real life, really!

This was dark red. Needed 4 coats to cover that!
I bought this set at Tuesday Morning.

I wish I had taken some before pictures. Anyway, I love how it looks. I will still add a few more things. I want to get a few plants and a framed picture. Fun stuff:)

Our bedroom is almost finished. I'll be showing that soon.
Have a very happy Easter!

Your bathroom re-do is very nice, Cindy! Lovin' that blue cabinet! Your shower curtain came out very sweet! I like that you did it on a budget, too. That is the best way - no guilt and you can change things whenever you want! Love your vintage tea towel, too.
Hope you have a lovely Easter!
Hugs, xoxo
