I’m still working on finishing up a few things in the new bathroom at the house in Hooterville. Hubby got the pieces of chair rail molding cut for me but I see another trip to Lowe’s in my future before I can get it painted and installed. I was all set to start painting and remembered I was out of white semi-gloss paint. Darn!
I still need a towel rack but I’m mulling over ideas for that. I’d also like to find a piece of art to hang over the toilet but I haven’t seen anything that really grabs me yet.
Something else I have been on the lookout for was some type of flowering plant to add a pop of color. (A realistic looking faux, of course, since I don’t do live plants. No green thumb here, folks.)
In my head, I was envisioning something in a pretty pink but when I spotted this faux orchid plant at TJMaxx the other day, the vivid shade of purple made me stop and do a double-take.
I wasn’t sure how the reddish purple was going to look with the bluish gray paint on the walls but I figured if it didn’t work, I could always return it.
But I think I like it! The color is different enough from the paint to be interesting and add the pop of color I was looking for.
The amazing cabinet guy who built my kitchen cabinets and fabricated the sink and countertop for the vanity in this bathroom has now finished and installed the custom storage cabinet in here. Once again, he has outdone himself! He took the vague ideas I had and was able to turn them into a beautiful, functional cabinet that seamlessly flows with the rest of the bathroom. I’m 200% pleased.
With 4 generous sized drawers on the bottom…
…and 4 adjustable shelves in the upper section, I should have ample storage space for all those bathroom necessities that I want and need to have handy but hate to leave sitting out in plain view.
The next (and last) really big inside project on the agenda at the house in Hooterville will be the 3rd bathroom. The 2 photos below were taken the day we first looked at the house in September 2009.
Believe it or not, this is considered the MASTER bathroom! Sad and pathetic, isn’t it?
Bet you’re wondering how I’m going to improve this.
Yeah, me too.
I do have a few ideas I’m tossing around in my head but it is going to be a challenge, to say the least. That’s why I’ve saved it for last.
