Here are some before shots...
It was great while it lasted, but it was definitely time for a change. So the last time I was home, we headed off to Lowe's to pick out a new paint color--this time looking for something much more light and soothing.
The winner was Ante Meridian by Valspar.
The Ante Meridian is a great compliment to my mom's existing white tile and plantation shutters. and it is the complete antithesis of the bold crimson color that was. We also took off the 1970's ceramic towel rack and soap and toothbrush holders under the mirror. It. Was. Time.
Unfortunately for us, the fixtures that we thought were PLASTERED TO the wall, were actually CUT INTO the wall...leaving us with a few gaping holes. Oh the surprises of DIY.
We were able to fill two of the holes with dry wall and left the rest for someone more qualified. :)
Because I had to come back to Florida before everything was completely finished, I don't have any true "after" shots to show you guys, but I do have some that will give you an idea of how much change a little paint brought to the space.
Ahhh. Much better, don't you agree?
