More Updating

Since we have moved into our new house we have done a lot of updating, painting and remodeling and we are not done yet! This whole time I have been trying to figure out what to do with our upstairs bathroom, when we first moved in I just painted it a nice gray color and hung up a shower curtain and just called it good. For sometime now it really has bothered me that I could not figure out what I wanted to do because I love doing this kind of thing. Then on Wednesday afternoon around 3pm it seriously just hit me and I knew what I wanted to do. I finally came to realize that the painted I had used had made the room too dark and it just was not exciting so that is what I needed to do, lighten things up. I went to the paint store bought 2 different colors (maple sugar & misty green) and I was on my way home to paint. When I finished I loved it, I found a few decorations to go along with the room and suddenly it all came together. Now I am happy to be in this room because it is completely and I do not have that feeling in the back of my head wondering what I am going to do with this room. Let me know what you think.
This is what it looked like when we moved in.....YUCK!

Then I did this......

Now it looks like this!

When you first walk in the wall with the window I painted the maple sugar color and then everything else I painted misty green and it made a huge difference. The room is so much more brighter and fresh.

I love it! I thought it looked nice before (your before, not the previous owner's before), but a different paint color can really make a difference!!
