At some point last week I started feeling a little frantic about my bathroom, because, while I had some big sweeping ideas about what we need to do in there, generally speaking, I didn’t really have a vision of it all coming together.
I’m getting closer now.
I’ve been pinning a lot, and here are some themes that have emerged:
1. I like bathroom gallery walls:
….this works out pretty well for me, because I also have a GIANT empty wall in my bathroom that needs something. I am thinking of all black and white photos, perhaps.
2. I like the idea of either black beadboard or just a black wall:
(oh, look–the first picture has a black wall AND a gallery wall. I guess I really, really like black walled bathrooms). I know I said that I thought beadboard might be too much with the board and batten already in the bedroom next door…but now I feel like black beadboard is SPECIAL and doesn’t count. However, it also sounds like more work and more expensive than just painting. So we’ll see.
3. One of those collections like I’m always talking about:
I love vintage planters. I don’t have any, but I could get some. And then I could put plants in them. Hard to kill plants. And they could all live in my bathroom. Like especially that donkey and his pink elephant friend.
You know my painted floor, once I rip out the carpet? I like this stencil, only white with black stars:
So far this is my favorite vanity light, but it’s more than I want to spend:
And then we need to make some stuff ourselves, because people love that, right? Also because it’s fun and cheaper than buying stuff.
I need fancy shelves to hold my new planter collection. Maybe kind of like the ones Caitlin at Desert Domicile made?
And I want a SUPER fancy light to replace the boob light that’s smack in the middle of the room. I don’t know yet what it will look like. It can’t hang down too low or we (and by “we” I mean “Dave.” Because I’m short) will hit our heads on it. So I’m still thinking, but said light could do a lot worse than looking like this one Kelly from View Along the Way made:
So that’s where I’m at at the moment. Now for the ceremonial ripping up of the nasty carpet! Just as soon as we get a spare minute here.
