Home Improvement Update Part Two: Bathroom

It all started because I was really tired of this look:

I loved it when we first decorated it this way, but that was 8 years ago. It was time for a change! So while we were in Branson for our Anniversary weekend I found this shower curtain and some other accessories:

The Handsome Prince is an avid outdoorsman. He loves to get all camo'd up and sit out in the woods for hours. He has several trophies on the wall to show for his patience. This is the room you come in to from our garage. When we remodeled our house we added the shower in here because it works so great when you have been out in the yard working, or in his case covered in "Scent" so that the deer won't smell him.

Down came the wallpaper and all those little fish I painstakingly cut out and pasted all over the walls. (I am pretty sure Joe and Terry were mumbling about those by the time they peeled the last one off!) It took way longer than I thought it would, and the color isn't exactly how I envisioned it would look, but I am very pleased with the new look.

I really like how the color looks with our oak woodwork. It has a bit more orange than I saw in the paint chip, but I really like how warm this room feels now. "Yarrow" was the right choice!
It looks different depending on the light and shadows.

I still have so much work to do to get everything looking like I want! I have a wrought iron mirror I am going to hang above the sink instead of the big mirror that was (barely) there. I think it will look nice with the towel bars and other rustic accessories I have found to go in here. Lucy and Gatsby are thinking I am going to a LOT of trouble making their room pretty:)
I hope to be able to share completed room pictures with you soon!
