Old Lady Bathroom

Confession time:  I have had the bathroom of an 87 year old woman.  Fortunately it didn't smell like the bathroom of an 87 year old woman, but still, enough was enough.  I didn't really mind the decor when we first bought this house nearly 11 years ago.  After all, there were TWO bathrooms!  After growing up in a house with only one bathroom and then living in a teeny 400 sq. foot newlywed apartment, that was awesome! Anyway, like I said, it was nice, it just wasn't me.  There was peach and blue floral wallpaper and lots of ultra-fancy shiny brass hardware everywhere. I finally decided to do something about it, and this week was spent peeling up old wallpaper, scrubbing walls, patching holes, replacing all the hardware and repainting.  It's finally done and I love the new look! 

I don't have a before picture of my bathroom, but here is a sample of the wallpaper after I joyfully ripped it from the walls.


And here is the finished product!  The wall color is actually more of a pale neon/lime green, rather than the avocado color that comes across in this picture, and I love the fun brown polka dot shower curtain!  I still have old lady light fixtures in here, (floral/brass....sshhh, don't tell anyone!) but that'll have to wait until I can get someone over here who knows how to do electrical stuff.  I would probably just blow myself up in the process, and then what would be the point of my fun new bathroom?  :)


  1. I LOVE it...where did you find that super cute shower curtain? I swear when I was shopping I saw every single shower curtain ever made and never saw this one. Cute...and I love lime green!

  2. OMGosh! That's SO cute! Thanks I wanna redo mine!! ;)

  3. Super fun! Love the colors and the energy.

  4. Cute! I like the color. Bright fun and happy!
