Show Us Where You Live Friday - Bathrooms

Kelly at Kelly's Korner Blog has her Friday meme - this week Bathrooms! These photos are actually of our current rent house - they had just painted it this dark taupe before they decided to buy another house.

Right off the bat, I knew I wanted to make a huge floral arrangement, and I chose to use these burnt orange colors. I really like how it turned out. I especially love the ceramic pot - all florals and pot purchased at Hobby Lobby at the 50% off sale, of course!

This is one of my all-time favorite iron pieces, and thought it looked lovely over the tub.

One view of the room.

I'm into big pictures in small spaces, and loved this in the toilet area. The cabinet to the left is one my husband made in high school, and it holds our towels.

Were this my personal house, those light fixtures would be gone in about 2 minutes, replaced with something oil-rubbed bronze!

Here's a photo from our previous home - it already had the wallpaper. We added the new lights and I made those window treatments. I purchased the cream metal squares at TJMaxx, ordered bronze glass buttons off Ebay, glued them on, and then made that shear curtain with tabs at the top. I think my Mom actually did the sewing on the curtains. When we moved in, there was navy carpet in the bathroom, and we replaced it with that tile. Looked much better!

This shows the shower and the toilet room door (one with the tassel) and entry to the master bedroom once it had been neutralized with the paint and carpet. This post HERE shows the color it used to be. Raspberry Truffle with Pittsburgh Paints (and it had the navy carpet as well). lol

And finally, the little toilet room in the master bath. This photo still shows the navy carpet. That room had it's own door, so hubby was happy. lol

This was our bathroom in the basement. It already had the wallpaper, so we just went with it.

This was our powder room on the main floor. I loved the red walls and black accent pieces.

And just for fun, I am showing you the ONLY room in that entire house that was not painted nor had wallpaper. The 2nd bathroom. I struggled wanting to paint it, but we thought we should leave one room untouched. lol

  1. That's a lot of bathrooms between 2 houses. They are nice and big. I love the red and black. I'm going to remember that for a future bathroom when we find ourselves in our own home. My whole stinking house is yellow(even the ceilings). But I suppose that's better then all white like most rentals.

  2. YOur bathrooms are super cute!! I love that floral arrangement and the tall candle holder in the other bathroom is gorgeous! Great job and I love the colors!!

  3. The iron piece is beautiful. Blessings to you!

  4. I love the floral arrangement you did! So nice!

  5. Nice sized bathrooms! I love your accents!

  7. Such pretty details- down to the tassel!!
