Saturday with Southern Living at HOME: Bathroom project

Happy Saturday y'all! Are you ready for our SLAH Saturday? I bet you were beginning to think that I had forgotten about our little home improvement project. In reality, I had ordered some things to complete the project and I was waiting for them to get here before doing the big reveal!

Remember this?

We hired someone to tear all those little fishies off the wall, scrape the popcorn off of the ceiling and paint our laundry room/bathroom a lovely shade of Sherwin-Williams "Yarrow".

SO much better! I have some ideas for this side of the room - the design wheels are turning...

We were more than a little concerned about this color when it first went on the walls. There was a LOT more orange in it than the paint chip told. I was hoping that once I started adding the accessories I had collected for this room that it would tone it down a bit. I think it has! I wanted chocolate brown for the towels and rugs - it's a mud room for heavens sake! But it also needs to be cheery enough to keep me motivated on laundry, AND the dogs call this "their" room. LOTS going on in here - it is the first room we enter and it is visible from the kitchen and dining room.

I have used the Estate bathroom collection in here. In this picture above I have used the following Southern Living at HOME products:
  • Estate Towel bar Item #40798
  • Galveston tray Item #41083
  • Estate Wall organizer Item #40797
  • Estate Canister Item #41069
  • Ornate Iron two-tiered stand Item #41145
  • Covington Accent tray Item #41150
  • Villa stoneware Salad Plates Item #41176
I made the cross stitched picture of the deer for my Handsome Prince.

The shower curtain was our inspiration piece and I really love it. It is a reproduction of a Terry Redlin painting called "The Birch Line". In this photo you also can see the Estate hand towel stand (item #40799). I created a little cell phone charging center using the Estate Vanity tray (item 41161).

Doesn't that ceiling look CLEAN! I love it! Found both of these light fixtures on clearance at Lowe's.

The mirror that was above the sink was very loose and almost fell off of the wall when they were tearing off the wallpaper. Since they had to take it down anyway, I asked them to just leave it down and paint the wall above the sink. I had a plan!

This Medallion mirror (item #41003) looks PERFECT in here! This is what I have been waiting on before showing reveal pictures. LOVE IT!!

We are VERY pleased with how this room turned out! I will update you on the second part of this project, the dining room, as soon as I have made up my mind what I want for a window covering in there...
