Small Brown Bathroom Upadate

Wow, this bathroom has been quite the ordeal. I never seem to be satisfied w/ any changes I've made here. So, I did a bit more this time around.

THIS is where the journey begins.

To this.

Curtain search has begun =D

My sista Jenny recommended that I paint the ceiling the same color as the walls to widen the room.

I considered crown molding, but it breaks it up and I'm thinking it's more for a very tall ceiling... right?
Jenny was right, painting the ceiling as well as the walls draws your eyes up wards and gives the illusion of a taller room. Hmmm, I might have to try this trick in the kitchen and living room.

BTW, this is BEHR prime & paint; color Ethiopia. I could lick my walls... it's so MOCHA!

The mirror which, I moved over from the dinning area; sanded, primed, painted white and VOILA! It's gorge!

Ceiling Paint
The sink vanity are all new off the shelf at Lowe's for $39.00. I used a credit I had w/ them and still had enough for bathroom condiments.

These are some left over knobs I had from another project. How much fun are these?

The faucet was a a Moen $20 find that once I opened was broken. So, there goes another drive to Lowe's w/ receipt on had to find a replacement. My luck they didn't have the save one and wanted to stick me w/ the normal $20 faucets... Hmm, not happening. So, I worked my magic and was able to score even a better one off the shelf priced at $120 for guess... wait for it... $20 WHOOPEE

That was a fun project. Time consuming for someone who doesn't know much about plumbing, but I loved the painting and decorating as usual!! =D

So, what do you think of my chocolate teeny bathroom?


Thank you for visiting!!

Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey  =)

I love it! But I don't think you need a curtain to hide that lovely white window -- do you? Is the glass obscured?

Thanks for all the awesome comments! @Chookie I will consider frosting the windows since the bathroom window has a clear view of my neighbors back yard an their pool =D

Keep 'em coming I love the comments!
