Half Bath Painting

Like the rest of the condo, the half bath between our living room and kitchen/dining area started out white.  White fixtures, white walls and ceiling, white vinyl.  A blank slate for sure!  I found a cute rug and matching towels at Target that served as my inspiration.

Inspiration!
I love the stripes and all of the colors.

After several trips to the paint center (and bringing  home enough sample cards to paper a room with) I decided on Behr Kittery Point Green.  I am famous for painting and repainting until I get ‘just the right’ color…but I don’t have the budget for that !  ( …or the energy now that I am *ahem* older)

 The color gives me sporadic thoughts of pistachio desserts, but overall I like the choice for the space…..for now, at least.  =)

I have always loved the blue painted wall shelf.  I added some fun beachy accessories and also some extra touches of blue.

Hadley Pottery Sailboat Mug

I found those sand dollars on the beach!

The downside of having a pedestal sink is that there is no built-in storage in the room.  The room is a good size so I was able to fit in a metal baker’s rack from Walmart.  It was black went I bought it but some white spray paint made it just right.  =)

These baskets from TJMaxx are a great fit!

I found the fish at the Hadley Factory in Louisville.

I framed this fun poster and put it on the long wall behind the door.

The room is coming along.  The biggest challenge is the mirror.  It is a cheap builder-grade mirror that is SECURELY glued to the drywall.  I am debating how to update it without having to pull it off and damage the wall.  I have seen some fun ideas with shells, rope, or tile but I need more inspiration!

PROBLEM MIRROR

If you have an idea, I would LOVE to hear from you!

Now that the half bath is painted, there are NO MORE WHITE WALLS on the second floor of the condo.

Progress.  =)

Shell Towel Rack

Shell Towel Rack!

My friend Peggy thought of this great way to add a beachy touch to her pool area.  Isn’t it awesome??

She found a piece of old barnwood and asked her Very Handy Hubby to attach four large shells to it.

Simple and SO FUN!!!

I can’t wait to take some photos of Peggy and Dave’s amazing yard/gardens/pool!!!  It is one of my very favorite places!
