Bathroom: Take 2

Firstly, I'd like to thank you all so much for your kind words in regards to yesterday's post. I continue to think of Raj, and his family, and wish there was a memorial service or something for me to attend. No obituary has been printed, I'm sure the family would like to maintain some privacy in this tough time. It's hard enough to hear his name on the news and the radio every day. So, remember how I repainted my bathroom to fix the horror that was the Jaywalker bathroom? Well, yesterday I got the finishing touch in the mail from my sister. She gifted me a wonderful linen shower curtain that she no longer had a home for. It's perfect! So, here is the cavalcade of photos:
The new shower curtain.
Check it out, new light fixture. The other one was older than me. It had to be. This one is so much brighter. I love it!
Pardon the spray bottles on the toilet. One has a water/conditioner mixture in it for the "day after" hair. The other is just water. I had used it for taking down the wallpaper. It still lurks in the bathroom though. I think it's emotionally attached.
This is directly across from the toilet, and the only place thus far I have found to put the stupid litterbox. I really need to potty train them. I hate the litterbox in a public area. There's just nowhere else right now.
Hi!

Ooo! I like it! Is that the original color you had as a base (and then the jaywalker stripes on top of it)?

And I commiserate, I too hate the litterbox dilemma.

I love the green!

Looks good! A very calming shade of green.

Bezzie - it's actually the ceiling color, well, Home Depot's version of Lowe's color that I got for the ceiling. I decided "screw it - all one color. I don't want to deal with "mistakes" again!" It's not exactly matchy to the ceiling, but it is a lighter shade of the jaywalker green. As Pye said, a more calming shade.

OooOOoo, I'm liking the new color.
...Are you doing "the face"? You're gonna freak out your sister.

turtlegirl76 said...

Ha! No, that's not "the face" click on it and you'll see. I'm just smiling funny. Hmm...I really need to send that pic to her though. She needs a good freak out. She's driving me nuts.

I love your bathroom. Very soothing color for hectic mornings. Can I come live with you? My bathroom is beige, dh won't let me do red.
There is no good place to put a litter pan.

Cristi,

Your bathroom is very pretty - and teh color is very similar to the shirt I am wearing right now :)

BTW - What do you consider to be 'day after' hair? I'm just curious becaur our hair is very similar and I know what my regimen is.

Red is a pain to paint - I highly recommend a tinted primer if you do it - and I would totally do the ragging technique for a final coat. Gives it a "leathery" look. I just might be doing red in my office...I do have it as the main accent color in my living room already. I'm going for an orangey-rusty color in the dining room and kitchen. My life is going to be full of color.

Zonda said...

Ohhh! I love that color! Great job on it! :)
