Here was my weekend project. I was torn between doing this clean look or a warm red on the bottom and oatmeal on the top. The tiles are just the slightest pink and I thought the red would bring that tone out so I decided on this instead. I thought it would be more of a Tiffany Blue but it dried a little darker and I love it! The pictures over the tub are little shadow boxes I made while watching Moulin Rouge, apparently that persuaded me to throw in a bit of victorian erotica! I need to hem the curtains so they aren't dragging the floor... The basket in front of the toilet is perched on this weird ledge that was built in, we store TP under it! We don't have a toilet paper holder so I thought I would just get a basket together to store rolls of the white stuff, some reading material, and a few towels and wash cloths.
The before picture doesn't do it justice to how awful it was, the color looks white but I swear it was this disgusting flesh tone that is in every room of the house- Barf!

The total cost for this room was under $100.

love the shadowboxes.....did you make the frames or are they purchased? The coloring complements everything really well.

This is very nicely done!

Although I LOVE curtains, and super long ones, I think roman shades would, perhaps, look better in this room. The windows are so low as it is, the puddling of the curtains are a bit of an eye sore.

Please don't take offense to this suggestion!

There are several tutorials on Craftster for these shades, if you are interested!
