A fish outta water = A Bathroom Re-do!

I hinted at this when I posted some of our Christmas decoration pictures. If you enter our house through the garage (like we always do) you come in to our Laundry room/third bathroom. I have had it painted blue with this fish wall paper and border for about 8 years. It's been fun while it lasted, but it is time for something new!

The shower curtain and other "fishy" accessories were fun to collect. We have souvenirs from some of the cruises we have been on setting about here and there. When I bought the wall paper, I didn't calculate correctly how much we would need (I SO should have paid attention in math class!) so I had to improvise. We cut all the fish we could out of the scraps we had left, and glued them to the two walls that didn't get paper. You kind of get the feeling you are in a fish bowl in here...

Anyway, for Christmas I found some really COOL deer hunting bathroom accessories. I found a new theme for Larry's bathroom! WOO HOO! So I purchased the Shower curtain, soap dish and Tissue box cover and wrapped them up. I so wish that I had taken pictures when he opened this gift. You could just SEE the (lack of) joy on his face!
I remembered that I had purchased this border awhile back when I wanted to make over his "man room". That still isn't done because we can't agree on a color, mostly because he doesn't like to paint. This could explain his lack of enthusiasm with the bath stuff. I think the border may work in here tho! I know this room will get fresh paint, because it is small enough I can do it myself!!

I'm going to get some paint chips this weekend, so I can decide on the new color. I actually don't mind the blue with this, but I'm thinking a shade of brown. I think I'd like Chocolate brown rugs and towels. What do you think? I'd LOVE your opinions/suggestions!!

I'll be sure to post pictures when I finish this project!
