From Drab...to FAB!

About a month ago I got to do some interior decorating. (LOVE TO DECORATE!!!) It's been a year in the making, but one three day weekend my brother and I got busy and went to work. Now know this, all I did was put in my input and a little pushing, but my brother went for my ideas and the result was FABULOUS! It doesn't even look like the same bathroom.

The dreaded before... (Yes, my pictures are not the best on the "before," or "after." Yikes - sorry all.)
And, the FABULOUS after pictures. Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it...
The idea was taken from the shower curtain that my brother purchased a year ago. I always like to take magazines from the post office garbage that are decorating/furniture magazines. I found this shower curtain and told my brother it would look awesome in his bathroom if he ever redid it. So, he bought the shower curtain and we went from there. His house has neutral colors through most of the rooms, so we went with the flow and picked green. I did want a more neutral green, but is it my house? NO. I then suggested that we paint the cupboard above the toilet a black and change all the ugly hardware. He got a new mirror, light fixture, hooks for the towels, and POOF, the bathroom was done, for now at least. He still needs to get a new shower wall, faucet fixtures, a fan, (so it sucks the moisture out) and new flooring. One thing at a time. However, it is a huge improvement thus far.

Crazy! Looks so different and so fun. You are definitely helping Cash make great cosmetic improvements to his house!

It looks so much better than it did. I wonder what grandma would be saying if she saw her house now. I think that it looks a thousand times better!

Except that my mother is probably turning in her grave, I think it's fabulous!! Spiffing up that bathroom is a challenge if you're not willing to go out to the edge. Congratulations Libby and Cash. I'll act as a referee between Grandma and you all. (That is if she's in a place on the other side where she's able to come and see the bathroom.)

I know it hasn't been Grandma's bathroom for a really long time, but now it's *really* not Grandma's bathroom anymore!! I think that yellow shower lining was in there for my whole life, which, you know.... Looks great!
