One day it hit me - I was living in my house of 5 years and I really hadn't made it a home yet! So, I got started.
Whatever my reasoning, or non-reasoning, that's where I started.
Here's a few before pictures! (Have to have those, right?) These were taken on our initial walk through before purchasing.

Soon after moving in, we realized the lights over the vanity weren't going to cut it in lighting up our whole bathroom. This fixture was found one night while wondering through one of our favorite home stores on clearance for about $25.
Things kinda stalled at that point. Life has a way of creeping in and taking over completely - we had another little one, kids started school, lasting medical issues, and many more just everyday things.
Fast forward to my little epiphany about not having a home, and I quickly got a gallon of paint in Gobi Desert, unearthed all my tools from the basement, and got started.
Yep. Neutral. Not exciting; but, I feel that I will be able to switch out accent colors as I want.
Current accent color? White! With a bit of black thrown in.
Behind the door I have a couple of hooks to hang our towels on.
When the decorating started, I made this no-sew valance for the large window.
I liked it, but I really like this and it's more what I originally had in mind. Cafe rod and window scarf were both purchased from Walmart.
These wrought iron wall decorations I've had for years, and they fit in perfectly on this side wall. The towel rod is Sienna by Moen - very pretty and easy to put up.
Overall, I am soooo pleased with the results! It's simple, relaxing and uncluttered.
