Makeover Photos part 1...

This is for you wild and crazy girls who wanted to see some makeover photos! I will post my kitchen tomorrow but don't think I will be able to do the kid's bathroom. The space is too small to photograph plus I don't have any befores. Just know that it's cute. ha-ha.

Keep in mind when you look at these that the "before" is really before we bought the house (we were only in contract). The previous owners were nice enough to let my husband take photos so we could plan. I might add that he is not a great photographer. Please don't tell him I said that. He actually thinks he's good. But that is a whole other post isn't it?

Here we go. I only have the one "before" since there wasn't much to take. Now you will see why I hated it SO STINKIN' BAD. Keep in mind that the actual paint color is yellow. Yes, I said YELLOW. Gag.
Here is my version:
Oh Yeah! I got my freak on real good didn't I? I love it. My husband loves it. I feel as though I can bathe in here now.

Little info: The gray behind the mirrors & behind the hanging candles is a tad bit darker. The other walls are lighter. I only use Behr Paint Ultra, which has the primer in it. So I only needed two coats. Thank goodness since I had to paint straight lines in every corner I don't think I could have handled any more coats. This room gets a tremendous amount of light so the dark colors really work. If you are wondering where the shower is it's a walk in right behind the tub. You can barely see the entrance in the photo above. Also we don't have any homes behind us so we can get away with no window coverings. We back to the woods and beyond that is the Scarborough Marsh which happens to be a tidal marsh so no building can ever take place! Cool. The framed photography is a set of prints that I bought several years ago. They are unbelievable prints of Italian & Parisian architecture. Elaborate Gateways & such. Ah, part of that Calgon take me away. Like to Italy or Paris! Oh and I bought that really cool tall black lantern at The Christmas Tree Shop for only $24. Reminds me of Pottery Barn for less than a 1/4 of the price. The hanging candles thing I bought at Michael's for only $7 with my coupon. The candles were more expensive!

Well that is about it. How do you like? Ok. Kitchen Makeover coming tomorrow. It totally rocks. Wait till you see this!

OMG, We are "bathroom twins"! My bathroom is smaller than yours and I don't have a wonderful tub like that, but everything else is so similar it's crazy! I've got grey walls with white trim and black/silver accents too! Ours used to be green & white faux marble sponge paint. BLECH! Love your style & the kitchen makeover too. You've totally convinced me that I'm going to be able to tile my backsplash myself. Now I'll have more $$ for scrap stuff! :)

I LOOOOOVE your bathroom!! Wow! I don't know if you ever watch Cougertown, but last week she had her bathroom redone, and the entire episode, everyone was hanging out in her bathroom because she wouldn't leave it. Your bathroom is beautiful enough to do that :)

I also have to laugh because twice I've painted rooms while my dh was on work trips.
