Bathroom Plan

I think the Beechnuts are going to get a new bathroom shortly. There is some water damage showing in the room below that we need to investigate. I am looking on the bright side, thinking this is great because the bathroom is really old and decrepit, but bad because I really wanted a new front door and french doors in the living room.

We're not going to move any plumbing or walls, but we might need a new window.
Here's the plan for the items we need to purchase. I'm going to keep it simple with hexagonal tiles on the floor, white subway tiles on the tub surround, and maybe go crazy with pink paint on the walls.

Guest Room - Before and After

This is our new Guest Room. Well, not really new but updated. The room is small, just 8 x 9 feet with a small closet.

This is what it looked like before, pasty-peach colored walls from the previous owners, super cheap curtains to just have something up.
I decided it was time to tackle this room so our guests have somewhere nice, albeit small, to stay when they visit. After all, its only been 6 years that its looked that way.
I started by buying the Pottery Barn Weston sconces (got a deal on Ebay!) to have wall-mounted light.

We painted the room C2 Haddon Hall.

We created a headboard using some MDF, spare gray fabric and nailhead trim.

Rehung some old curtains from Pottery Barn. Yes, I know they are too short, but they'll do for now.

I found the royal blue rug a home depot in the super-clearance section. Changed up some artwork (the 2 florals were a wedding gift).

 And ta-da! 1 bedroom complete!
