We’re not talking about italian ice today, but the color of our guest bathroom downstairs.
We call this the “pool bath” since there is an exterior door that goes right out to the back patio.
Unfortunately, there is no pool out there on the patio, but that’s what it’s called nonetheless.
I think baby G2 will claim this as his or her bathroom since it’s right by the second nursery,
and since Kenley has her own bathroom in her room. However, it’s the only bathroom downstairs that
is available for guests to use… got it? Good.
Much like the rest of the house, the bathroom was pretty boring when we moved in.
White and basic with the standard builder grade mirror, light fixture, and towel racks.
Several weeks ago, Greg found a light fixture on Craigslist for $35!
Since he was in the process of changing out the light, we thought it only made sense
to paint the bathroom since the light was already off the wall.
And you know we couldn’t stop there…
Over the course of the entire weekend, Greg painted the bathroom,
put up bead board (one piece we already had leftover),
installed crown molding (again, we already had a piece leftover),
and framed out the mirror.
Greg confidently said that this would be the last crown molding project he’ll complete.
For some reason, it was much worse than the family room project.
But, it looks great!
I contributed by adding the last few accessories we needed to match the bathroom set
we got for Christmas last year. I believe it’s being (or has already been) discontinued,
but it’s the Kate Spade Candy Shop line from Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I’m pretty sure this shower has only been used twice since we’ve moved in,
but I foresee us using it soon for some baby baths.
This is also where we have our cloth diaper sprayer, so the bathroom itself
gets used every day, even if it’s not by guests.
Overall, I am so happy with how it turned out. The color is definitely bright,
but I like to think ahead several years down the road when little feet are
trampling back and forth from the pool to the bathroom that it’ll be the perfect color.
Have you done any bathroom updates lately?
