My main priority besides my "Don Draper" chairs are my "Harry Potter" dining room chairs:
It is a shower only bathroom. We replaced the once beautiful 1960s era blue sink and toilet a few years ago. I ripped down the wallpaper that hung there when we first moved in, painted it white and then did a hideous stencil. At the time it looked better, but over the years I began to hate it - both the stencil, the bathroom as a whole, and in particular the very hard to clean, it-never-looks-clean tile in the shower area.
I woke up one morning in November and decided that would be the day. I would scrub the infernal stall until my hands bled, I would march into Lowes, not fret over colors and pick one I liked by instinct, and then.... Yes, then, I would tackle my old enemy.
Came home, kicked the cats out of their litter box. Told the Bostons to take a hike and began painting.
I panicked when the color first went on. I panicked after it dried. I panicked the next day. But then I started getting a few accessories to "jazz" up the joint and now I smile when I walk into my "bathroom suite". The shower tile is still hideous, the litter box is still there, but the rest of it makes me feel pretty good.
I'm not the best photographer, but you get the idea. The blue towel bars remain and I think they kind of blend in with the look of the room. I covered the ugly window with dish towel curtains and added a nice hook to hold the plastic bags (yes, for THAT) and put an inspirational sign above the window.
Close up of "curtains" and sweet sign.
Mr. Tennis and I have always been big fans of the "Life is Good" line of clothing and accessories so I was happy to find this...
...to hang over our mirror and get our days off to a good start.
