Bathroom Update

This week I decided that our guest bath needed a little update.  And since I still had Christmas money to spend, I decided to go for it!  I know, it's pathetic that I still hadn't spent money that I got for Christmas.  We all know I'm cheap, so let's move on...

Here's the bathroom before:
Although I loved the shower curtain that Regina passed down to me (thanks, Gina), my husband had the same complaint as hers (it's too girly).  I was also having trouble finding accessories that I thought looked good with it, and the blank walls were driving me crazy (these pics were taken after Matt hung the round towel holder).

Here are the "after" pics:


It's not a dramatic change, but I like it!  I added dark gray towels & rugs, a white shower curtain & hand towels, and a small metal sign from Hobby Lobby (only $4).  The black metal design over the toilet was something that we already had, I just moved it to the bathroom!  The gray & white color scheme matches with the modern look of the bathroom & the dark gray counter that was already in there.  Now I just have to decide what to do with the other shower curtain that I think is so cute...

Looks good! I love the pattern on the shower curtain I gave you, but unless you're a single girl, good luck using it! I hope you find a good use for it- maybe save to use the fabric in a baby girl's room?? :)

I like it. I think I spent my Christmas money faster than any previous year!

I think it looks really great! And I must say I'm jealous of the double sinks.

It's funny that we both have black and white decor in our bathrooms. Although you're not lucky enough to have the nice turquoise tile, circa 1957, as a backdrop for yours. ;)
