revamping le crapper.

remember a few posts ago i mentioned that i found three new bathroom vanities i liked at that big, orange home improvement warehouse?

well, as much as i would like to totally redo our hall bathroom, it's just not in the budget.  instead, i'm going to repaint the walls {and maybe repaint the current vanity}, switch out the bath mat & hand towels and work on some new artwork for the walls. 

the hall bathroom will be going from kid-friendly & fun to more grown up & sophisticated.

i bought this shower curtain at kohl's over the weekend {it was originally $49.99 and on sale for $29.99, but when it rang up at the register it was $24.99!}:


i have some leftover paint that will match the pale, pale blue color in the shower curtain.  and, i actually have a beige that should look good with the shower curtain, too.  i am thinking i might put a horizontal stripe on the wall opposite of the sink & toilet.  the hall bathroom is small {as is the rest of my house!} and i think taking the bathroom from the funky mandarin orange color it currently is to something cool & light will open the space up.

the biggest challenge will be decorating the walls.  i currently have beach themed artwork on the walls.  i may just put a vinyl decal on the wall or just paint a canvas in a design similar to that on the shower curtain.  or, that horizontal stripe on the wall just might be all of the oomph the walls will need.

i'm hoping to get started on the bathroom redo this week.  the biggest hurdle will be priming the walls with a coat of kilz and, i suppose i should snap a few before photos for you, right??
