We moved into our condo in September

Everything was painted muted grey.
Everything.
Even the carpet and flooring is grey.
Like a mental institution.

So I decided I couldn't stand it any longer and started on the guest bathroom (or my bathroom as DH calls it, he has the ensuite)

Here is the before pics



And here is the after.







I decided to put big acrylic knobs on because not only do I like them (so girly and glam) but it tied in the faucet a bit better (I was on a tight budget and replacing the faucet wasn't an option)

The wrapping paper in the frames I LOVE! 3.95 for a big sheet that I used for the 2 frames and in the cup that holds my make up brushes (99cents for the glass yay!) the bath mat, towels, towel rack, and glass bottles were all from IKEA (so relatively cheap), frames from Michaels (7.99 on sale, then an extra 25% off that) and my dad does renovations so he supplied me with the paint for free Smiley

All in all, I LOVE IT

I feel so silly for falling so in love with a piece of paper but I do love it!
I got it from a little shop called "Paper Moon" in Fort Langley
Here in B.C. They have the mOst wonderful things including these sheets of wrap paper
They are about 16"x24" or something like that.

Thanks! The paint is actually a slate grey but it totally has a blue tone too it. I was a little scared to paint it that dark but I love it now.
