Masterbath Makeover

BEFORE: Crisp Khaki is the color on the walls from Miller Paints. It was nice, but never really was "me".
I have disliked these vanity lights since I first saw them. And it was really rather bland and boring in there, until a couple weeks ago.
AFTER: My parents had an extra gallon of the perfect color. It was the color I'd been thinking about putting in our Master bedroom / bath. So last time I went to visit, I brought it home. It's from Ace Hardware and the color is Woodland something. I'll come back and post it, as soon as I find it. I would have never picked this color. It's the lightest shade on a paint swatch of Greens! I had been looking at blues/Aquas never finding quite the right one.
Hubby made the little Medicine Cabinet. More on that later. It's perfect on that wall. Now hubby can put all his junk in there instead of sitting on the counter.
A little Spray Paint and Sand Paper to these and they're like new.
I found this vase at Tuesday Mornings quite a while ago. The shells are from the $1 store.
The little picture is a dollar store frame I turned into a shadow box. The sand dollar is one that the boys found on the beach years ago.
I love these photos of my guys. They are a set of my favorite. And I love being able to look at them everyday. And of course the colors in them are perfect. It ties the aqua-ish color and the browns (counter top, tile, floor) together fairly well.
I found these on clearance at Fred Meyer's a couple years ago. They're perfect on the little wall outside the shower.

I was hoping I would find a little basket of some sort to set on the back of the toilet. I was so excited when I found this at the Goodwill! Two bucks! It's filled with shells from the $1 Store and our trips to the beach, a few shell balls from the craft store and some awesome rocks that my dear bloggin friend from American Somoan sent me! They're perfect in my little tray of beach keepsakes.
And all though the rubbed bronze and "black" finish for faucets and such is so 'in' right now. I really didn't want to invest that sort of money replacing perfectly good fixtures. Plus the knobs on the drawers, door knobs, shower, etc. are all brushed nickle. And I know there may be differences of opinion, but being a professional house cleaner, I much prefer to clean these than the rubbed bronze stuff. So much easier to clean.So I updated the light to match the other fixtures and it looks so much better. And a new toilet paper holder too. You know one of the more important items in a bath. LOL

Later I'll share with you how my hubby and I work together to create the projects he builds for me. I seriously am thrilled with this one. And it was all from scraps in his shop. Very fun!

Love the bathroom makeover! The new colour looks so fresh. It must be wonderful to have such a clever creative husband - the medicine cabinet looks amazing.

I would love to know how you made a dollar store frame into a shadow box!!!

It looks great...I love anything that even slightly resembles teal, so I think it's stunning :)

I love your bathroom! The cabinet looks very professional! Lucky you to have a handy hubby. Everything in the room seems to be just the right touch.
