The Next Project

Thursday, February 17, 2011

A couple of days ago i cleaned out our linen closet and gave it a nice update. Transforming our linen closet made me want to freshen up our bathroom. We've completed a bathroom few updates since moving into our home two years ago. Here's what we have done so far: New faucet, bathroom hardware, painted the cabinet dark brown, new mirror and new shower curtain, fresh paint. With all those new additions are bathroom still remained BLAH. Our main objective for our bathroom is Color!  Here's our BLAH bathroom.

 Mr. CLH and I began working on our plan to give our bathroom a mini update a major one is still far off into the future. We want to paint the bathroom a soothing color add shelving and make the bathroom feel fresh. The shelf we currently have is hollow and can only hold a few items not very practical. While I like our current white waffle weave shower curtain, I'm thinking our small bathroom could use a dose of color with a new shower curtain. We plan on completing our bathroom update on a budget. Our budget spend less than $100 bucks. We plan on keeping what works and mixing in new items.

Bathroom Wants: New Shower Curtain? New Wall Color, Bathroom Hooks for Towels, Shelves, DIY Art Work, Bath Mat, Shampoo Holder, and new light bulbs!

We hope by layering in more color in our small bathroom, the small space will feel fresh airy and larger. I'm going to start looking at paint samples and shower curtains this weekend and will keep you posted on our progress

What's next on your project list?


  1. Sometimes it takes forever just to see your hard work! I'm always frustrated by those projects that take a lot of effort but result in not-so-dramatic results. But I'm sure it already looks a million times more amazing than what it started out with. And I seriously can't wait to see your results! I'm already prepared for you to pick out the most adorable shower curtain, beautiful colors, and amazing accessories.

    We just finished painting the living room gray a couple of weekends ago and swapped out a few accessories. It already looks fresher and prettier. I've just been struggling with the right shade of curtains. I'm hoping to get some charcoal ones at Ikea this weekend and once I line and hem them, the room will be set!

  2. I'm sure that you can stay within your budget on this project. You have a great running start.

  3. Meg I can't wait to see how your living room looks now with the new color - I love grey living rooms!! The charcoal curtains sound pretty :)

    Thanks Tonia -- I'm going to do my best on the tiny budget -- I think the biggest expense will be the shower curtain & paint!

  4. There are so many great shower curtains available at places like Target that could be the start of your update. Your bathroom doesn't looked dated to me, a few new accessories and a new shower curtain might be the first step to get you to a look you can live with and enjoy until you're ready to take on more.

  5. Your bathroom is cute and has a lot of potential! I also love your linen closet makeover. Very nice. =]

  6. Thanks the Ultimate -- its the only 'room' in our house where I don't see potential! lol - So I'm glad you see it!

    Glad you liked the linen closet makeover, I love walking by it now

  7. add a little more color, some what knots, some tall vases for a corner and a music box.
    if you have room, put some pretty flowers a window or on the sink top.

    you will keep the budget; you always find deals.

    where there's a WILL to keep your budget, there is a DEAL to stay within your budget...

    Happy Shopping

  8. Well, your bathroom is actually not that bad. It just needs some color. You can try mix-matching 2 color palettes for your bathroom to create a more vibrant shade.


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! Best, Katrina
